    GBS Silencer

    Depending on how the mot tester interprets the rules, a Q plate is visible smoke only for emissions at mot.

    When @WallerZ has one his with the mx5 engine it sounded quiet as a mouse until he went full throttle.

    Pre IVA MOT

    Pretty sure it’s illegal to drive the car on the road to anything other than the Iva appointment prior to first Iva test. After the first test you can drive it to a garage for work required to pass the Iva though. As for dyno costing more, it does, but then you have a properly tuned car and that is worth every penny.

    Pre IVA MOT

    Personally I’d be trying to find a rolling road that can do your tuning and check/set emissions for IVA. The rolling road will stress the car to find issues an mot won’t, and generally speaking they’ll be able to give the car a once over too.

    Strange problem

    Sounds like your ignition barrel/starter button stuck on, either that or a short that caused it to stay on
  7. @Vaughan details of the meet I mentioned. will be there, and most likely having a carvery before hand.
