Hello and welcome to my first post....
I have a bonny wee Avanzato challenge car R583HKO and am desperate to get it on the road again. It has passed all its previous MOT's, with various owners, but now that I own it I cant get it through its emissions test.
According to various MOT centres it has to have CO of less than 0.3% to pass and mine is 1.0% even with a non competition ecu in.
Previously, and many hundreds of miles away, it had been getting tested as a non CAT car as it isnt in the VOSA book. If it is a KIT Car or a non CAT import then it would also have a 3.5% limit.
So what i want to know is if it should be getting tested as a non CAT car which has a limit therfore of 3.5%, as it has done for the previous umpteen MOT's of its existence, and if it is then how do i convince VOSA and the MOT stations of this? and if its supposed to be 0.3% how can i get it down to such a level?
oh and its only putting out 0.7 bar boost whether its got the comp or standard ecu in. which means it sadly only does 0-60 in 12secs (sobs quietly).
any advice would be appreciated
