    Never had my S14 in for MOT until now, and should have realised but hte Apex de-cat has meant cr*p emmisions.

    Does anyone know the quickest (and cheapest) way to fix this so it will pass the MOT?

    Thanks

    Get yourself down to a scrapy and see if there's anything that'll suit. Or make "special" friends with the tester :D:p:euge:

    Either that or see if they'll let it go with the decat still in, might get lucky?

    where abouts are you mate?

    you could try the 'it has a pre 94 engine fitted and thus cannot be cat tested. but they may ask for proof

    Ask on here and the sxoc if anyone has a cat for sale. It's only a ten min job to swap over and it'll sort all your problems:nod:

    theree used to be a cat for mot's you could borrow in sxoc

    you would be better off finding a friendly mot tester and get the emmisions from a hybrid
