    the 'cat' needs to be visibly there for mot.

    and could be tested .. in theory .. by a temp. measurement

    some folk knock out the internal bits ..
    some fit a straight thru pipe inside ..
    ```````````````````````````````````````
    personally .. i preferred to fit a straight thru stainless exhaust backbox
    sounds nice .. not too loud .. and lets the turbo get working a bit quicker

    `````````````````````````````````````````````
    you might find something here ..

    You can remove the CAT (depending on local regulations), as there's no CAT monitoring feedback to the EDC. ;)
