ask to see him test the loudness with a db metre, only way to test it. if he denies then go somewhere else mate cos he sounds like a class A knob :rolleyes:

found out there was a leak elsewhere on the exhaust therefore effecting the emissions

that is surely garbage... mine went through with no centre box on... go figure how loud that is

only fail on loudness if its louder than 98 db at a 45 degree angle about 5 inches away form exhaust. i should know, had to go get mine tested and was only just safe at an average of 97.9 :|

make sure they tested it properly and have the correct equipment if its due to loudness

it cudent of been emissons, my mates failed on the loudness, as it wasent the same noise level as a standard exhaust system fitted to the same make of vehicle , or sumthing like that it said on the mot fail , lol


Kurt

posted on 8th Dec 05 at 20:07

Never had an aftermarket exhaust affect emissions on any car. That is unless a decat was fitted!

so far two of my mates have had an MOT and had to have their aftermarket exhausts taken off, they failed on emissions tests. I was under the impression that just putting a backbox on wouldn't really effect the emmisions? this happend to anyone else?
