How will I explain this to the NCT guys?

(NCT = yearly (kinda) national car test, exhaust/emissions etc)

Rewrite the ECU software so that it knows when it is under test conditions and reduces emissions to cheat the test

works for VW

actually it should still pass emissions just fine if the mapping is done right. under steady cruise and moderate accel it shouldn't be any more dirty than stock. only under high boost does it need more fuel for safety. even then most cats can clean it up.

Except when your man pops the hood/bonnet and sees all the ah... umm... improvised plumbing.... lol.

If I had the skills, I’d have a go, there’s an old banger we have... it’s probably so old I think it may only make 2/3rds of the quoted when-new power... if that...

But since we don’t necessarily have to drive it on “proper” roads... hmmm...

Or maybe I’ll just go mad and bolt in onto a John Deere, lol...

yes depends if your municipality fails based on modified appearance.
my old VW rabbit had CIS injection, that is gone, replaced with programmable EFI and wide band O2. with a new modern cat and feedback from the wideband it runs cleaner than stock.

ultimately I'd like to convert to electric though.

Odd day, buried our best friend today and had to pull up the funeral music (Botticelli, she was married to a 'businessman' from Sicily, don't ask).

So, NOT the music from the pit-party but saw this last night, how hot is she (sad thing is, he ain't exactly ugly either and the singing is ****** AWESOME) ????

Sorry to hear about your troubles. We've had a particularly bad patch here, too. Drug problem seems about 10x worse than what it was when I left. Lately there's been a lot of violent deaths here wholly or in part due to drugs... guess I still have to be thankful it's not as bad as a big city in Australia or America.

That may not be a bad idea. I mean, in general for these tests... Trouble is it's hard to find petrol alcohol blends.

Out of curiosity what's the price of petrol down under these days?

We have €1,47/litre

Diesel is about ten cents cheaper.
