MOT anybody?

Had a bit of a search but couldn't easily find any data other than everyone thinking it probably would be ok.
Has anyone actually had an MOT done yet (and passed) with a non stock Y Pipe?
I hope so otherwise I'll be off to rent one (didn't bother taking my old one after the change...wifee would have seen it in the boot!)

if you car is properly mapped. It would pass a MOT easily. Otherwise put the stock cats back and go for the MOT.

Thanks for the words chaps, I guess some people will be up for MOT soon so we should have some direct experience/results I would have thought.
Robbie, thx for the offer, much appreciated, mine is not actually up for MOT for another 18 months or so in any event

Do you think you could get away with putting the original Ypipe back on if you had decat downpipes on

Don't fancy the 5 hours labour cost to take off and put back on for an MOT

Yep, that would be a more interesting question.

I spoke to Iain about the y-pipe and he is certain that any reasonably well mapped car would pass with just the downpipe cats in place.
