    You won't pass an MOT without a catalytic converter whatsoever, the test involves checking for one. There's also the emissions test, broadly speaking some cars would pass without a cat but it's not the norm.

    It's against the forum rules to discuss de-cat or removing the DPF on diesel cars so I'll stop there. But we'll happily answer other exhaust related questions :Smile:

    You can’t pass the MOT emission test for a petrol car without a catalytic convertor in UK, you can make the modification for your twin exhaust back boxes whilst retaining your catalytic convertor

    For more info what you can do and can’t do from a MOT perspective have a read of this MOT Documentation Contents Page

    Now the boring bit.

    If you modify tell your insurance company, as some will use non disclosure as a reason not to pay out.

    This. For me changing anything and everything on my exhaust system costs me just £17.50 to declare on my insurance, it's not worth not telling them.

    Good point but Tell them to cover the exhaust or in case of accident they don't pay the repair because we didn't tell them the mod even if on the repair they put a standard one??? I look on my insurance papers and didn't says anything is why I'm asking....

    Yes, in any circumstance where there is modifications to your vehicle in Britain and it's not declared, your insurance policy can be deemed invalid and you're left with footing the bill yourself. You can also get a hefty fine/point on your driving license.

    Some insurances providers are more strict than others on what needs to be declared, but it's always best to check. Exhaust modifications will almost always need declaring. Some even want any non-standard stickers declaring, seriously.
