What about MOT time with EGR and/or CAT removal?

Does it still comply?

Thats why i've put it in '' marks. It's the easiest way to explain things relative to the tuners specs in the link i posted...

Yes, because the tester doesn't remove the undertrays so he can't actually see the front cat. He'll make a note in the advisories something along the lines of "undertrays fitted" to cover himself.

At the moment I know for a fact its very slightly quicker but I'm down on fuel economy, i suspect it needs to be mapped in. That said my PVC needs replacing too so don't know if thats having a knock on effect?

The other mods to be combined with this are a big intercooler and an EGR delete followed by a Motorsport Developments tune to 300hp.

For reference mine is the 204 hp model

Egr delete pipe + tube fusion decat fitted.

A lot smoother power delivery and a nice whistle from the turbo.

Next is to gut out the secondary cat, get a eBay fmic and a live map I think..

Gotta admit, that does sound bang on! Where do you stand with basically no backbox for MOT? Put it through an emissions test yet?

If you need a proper EGR manifold blank, I had some made up that I can send you for like a tenner with a gasket if you want. Takes about 20 minutes to fit, just does away with all the pipework as I had an EGR blanking kit but it snapped at the inlet, car ran like crap and the hot exhaust gases started melting the plastic fan shroud, not ideal!

I wanted to revive this thread and find out if Jard continued with his tuning? 

Mines been having preventative maintenance, glowplugs and relay, soon to have a major service. I need to replace my main thermostat as its lazy. I have also confirmed through INPA that I have a leaking injector so unsure whether to go new or rebuilt.

I have deleted the viscous fan and second/aircon fan and replaced it with an electrical fan that kicks in with the aircon or when it gets to 92. I also removed the large plastic cowling that sits in front of the radiator. The E90's have just a single electric fan so not sure why we cant do it. Also, this mod is popular in America where in places its far hotter. So far, no issues even in 17 degrees (hottest my area has seen this year!) although once I have a more efficient thermostat we shall see. It picks up quicker and I notice the lack of weight from viscous fan. Once I have the intercooler fitted I will modify the cowling so that it can be refitted without fowling it. I have also had a hard EGR pipe made out of stainless with a diameter of 2.25" (51mm) which is what the inlet manifold size is. Intercooler pipe wise, I dont plan to change size unless I go hard pipe but I will see how the new intercooler holds up.

Interested to see how other peoples projects are going!
