Catalytic Converter

Post by Hijet news team on Wed Dec 05, 2012 10:39 am

Morning all, I'm new to this site and a new Hijet owner too but I've read through some good advice so I'm hoping you can help.

I've got a 2000 MPV and was wondering if the cat can be removed whilst fitting a new exhaust and still pass the emissions test? My back box and cat are rotting and I'm obviously trying to get away with the cheapest option available.

I'm not sure I think it is a case of if one was fitted as stock it should have one but you can get decats for other things so may come down to how clean it runs and what the test station think.

I need a cat and back box. Can't see me getting both for £50. Ive had a glance on eBay.

I'm no exhaust expert but are cats specific to vehicle tuning or just engine size. If it is engine size as I would presume..... Could I not just get a cat and back box from any 1.3 vehicle. Or is it much more complex than that? When folk get custom exhausts built, don't they just use universal parts?

The cats fiftyish, I never mentioned a backbox Wink
Hijet exhausts are notoriously expensive, you'd prob be as cheap getting a custom stainless one made

True. The one I had worked out at just under half price as far as I recall.

You can try to contact 12aou71 on e-bay, I bought from him some exhaust parts in the past, a friend of mine saved his Astra from demolition with one of his kat because two years ago it can't pass the mot test.
At now I have on my Porter one of his kat that I bought last year for my old car and it seems to run fine.
