I can fix most things, I'm no expert and do need help sometimes but flippin' 'eck Mikey that is awsome.
Now I can see why and how much can be done with the body lifted. You guys are gonna be busier than a test bench in a plunger factory!

Usually, an MOT tester will advise that engine covers and undertrays are fitted to cover themselves if they miss anything, and pass and advise on that
I've had 3 MOT's done now, and never had that crop up
I know the MOT requirements have changed recently, and are continuing to evolve to 'harmonise' with the EU (no comment ) but I still didn't think a MOT tester was allowed to 'remove' any factory fitted covers etc, and as the driver you just say "don't know how it comes off mate" Never get mad - get even !!

That's a great detailed thread Coo, thanks for the reply but I didn't see anywhere what I asked originally which was do the EGR valves have to actually be on the car at all and can I then blank the exhaust side and related pipework with the EGR's not on the car?
I ask this as I am rebuilding my engine and was hoping I didn't have to actually put them back on the car at all?
