Obviously the engine has no CAT so it won't be require for the MOT either

Doesn't mater fella. Mine came without a CAT so i didn't put it on. As long as u have the documentation of the original engine saying that it didn't have a CAT (Well, it doesn't say that, but the engine year/number etc will confrim it) and you have this for the MOT then all should be fine.

I didn't put the cat on mine. Straight thru system into the rear boxes (2" pipe)

I done a lot of research into this because i didn't want to piss about with putting in/taking out cat for the MOT.

If the engine came with the Cat, then you WILL need it for the MOT unless u can twist their arm.

mine has no lambda sensor wire in the loom so i dont need cat, i think if they see a lambda sensor they will tell you you need a cat.

Basically Corb, u will have a 20XE. same year as my engine, again also out of an Astra GTE. You wont need a cat.

Check under exhaust port 3 as well to see if u have a Coscast head

http://www.motuk.co.uk/manual_730.htm

"Vehicles fitted with a different engine"
Test according to which is older, engine or vehicle.
e.g. A 1995 car fitted with a 1991 engine (of whatever make), test to 1991 standards for emission purposes.

Note: The onus is on the vehicle presenter
to prove engine age.
