there will be a date stamp in the centre of the block just above the sump on the front of the engine. (front = exhaust side.)

Well to be fair any decent garrage who does MOTs will know the diff between a Red top and an Eotec so they will know that its definately know its a pre aug 92 engine.Otherwise i would be worried leaving my car with them for anything.

to be honest i thought telling weather it chould have a cat or not is simple.

Its proving its a pre 92 car, think you need the log book from the donor car to defineatly prove its pre 92 at some garages. Look under the car, just above the sump in the middle there will be a date stamped eg: 08 - 09 - 90

IT's in section 7.3, exhaust and emissions, basically the car's emissions is tested to the age of the car or engine, which ever is older.

no took it one place and they said this car has no cat... then phoned about 5 other places and they have all told me to fook off, problem is if you start arguing with them they wll just find some other reason to fail it.

Ask Jill off here she found it online where it says they take the MOT Emission's of the year of the engine not the car

explain that the engine meets all the emission requirements that its supposed to

Got a 97 sport with a 20xe in it, from a 90 cali i think. None of my local testers will mot it as a 2.0 16v corsa they just say because it is manufactured after 1992 it need's to have a cat no argument :mad:
