MOT DAY (NCT)

Tried to find a thread think it was mentioned the last time about noise polluting exhausts that the testers can fail ya I know I have a Ninja backbox and it quiet compairing Blitz nurspec and Afterburners but you know the testers they want a reson to fail your car. This law is only new in Ireland do ye have it over for yer Mot it seems to be a new law that they can fail a noisy aftermarket exhaust any info be great

Re: MOT DAY (NCT)

no law over hear mate,and are you sure its law over there dont think you
find it is,have your mot stations got the machines in to test the level and
do they have all the info on the levels that the cars should be,the mot tester has always had the power to fail a car on noise if they think that
it is over the top,ive just put two scoobys through mot,s fine.
GOOD LUCK

I dont think the law has changed with the noise limit. It's still the MOT tester's judgement as to whether it is "excessive".

Good luck with the MOT.

Thats great guys cheers found out they trying to bring it in here and their are going to measure how loud exhaust is and if it over a certain level by testing it by decibels (db) reading it can fail but sure thats for just really loud exhausts
