Whats the legal lowdown for when you change your engine, obviously you have to inform the insurance company, but what happens to the records of your car? I.e On your V5 document? Do u have to tell them it has bigger engine?

what happens if they come back and tell u its a stolen engine.

does informing them get over the problem of needing a CAT for MOT

a cat for mot sounds like ghetto talk to me...
