    If I put-on a 4 into 1 decat manifold, sort out sensors positioning to avoid warning lights, will i pass MOT? Or will it fail as originally it has 2 CATs?

    Hi all I took Maggy (my beloved '94 MX-5 Mk1 1.6 BBR Turbo) in for her MOT a few weeks back and there were a few mechanical issues (now sorted) but they couldn't test the emissions as they couldn't hold the revs at the right level. I'd noticed she wasn't running right and would often rev very...

    As per title. I'm planning to fit a JDM 4-2-1 manifold to my uk mk1 1.8 1996. I've got a 440mm cat. Before I buy a short cat and EGR blanking kit, I'm wondering if I'm going to have problems with my MOT emissions due to the downsizing of my cat. Lots of Internet searching and I've found just...

    Hello all, I am hoping someone could offer some advice. Basically, my ageing MX-5 (1998 1.6) has failed on the lower rear suspension arm, a part I cannot find anywhere except for Mazda at a stupid price of £225!
