Catalystic converter

Recommended Posts

I run a 1996 Defender 300 TDI. This was built in October 1995. Its one of the first ones to be fitted with a cat converter. My question is I would imagine that shortly the front pipe will need re placing. If I change it for one minus the converter will it make any difference to the running of the vehicle? I fancy a stainless system but have been told that they are noisier than the metal ones. Would not having a converter make any difference to the smoke test on MOT?? Any thoughts.I would imagine that someone out there has done this. Thanks in anticipation. Keith

Cats are not required in UK on diesel engined vehicles, so removal willnot cause any problem at MOT time.

I have a full stainless steel system on my 110, haven't noticed any noise difference between it & a normal mild steel system, mines been on for well over 10 years.
