Re: HOW TO DECAT? Do it or not?
You do not need a cat for the car to pass the mot - as it is not a petrol engine, if your JTD is smoking at the rev limit, it prob needs a good service and a new air filter and possible injectors need cleaning. There is a place up here in Sheffield who will remove the cat and replace it with a custom system from turbo to tailpipe! Roll on rotten exhaust day, lol. The cat in diesel cars is just a token gesture to the environment, they are so much more fuel efficient then the petrol counterparts, just think how longer our oil supplies would be if all the cars on the road were diesels!
