So I bought a used 10 year old car.

 

What happens next year if I go for inspection and inspection fails ?

 

I suspect the cat in the exhaust was modified or deleted ...

 

Can I buy a cat to install ?

Then you end up with a lemon car. Pray it's a common make and you can find a scrapyard cat, else you have a very expensive display car.

The answer is obvious what. If the exhaust system has been tempered with, especially with the cat, the inspection test will be immediate failure. You could be facing a fine too for tempering with the cat.


Too much to think about...

You will have to buy new exhaust system lo. So easy.

If you buy a cat to install, it will have to be oem and original. Also you will need to instruct the welder to do swee swee or else you will still fail if there are visible welding marks.

you suspect only, why not send the car for an inspection and see how it goes. If it  fails , go get it fixed .   

there is no need to live in uncertainty. It may not even fail and may not be catalytic converter unless you have credible evidence to think so.  It depends on what car, catalytic converter  should be less than S$500

Impreza S-GT right? go to the scrapyard gt a stock exhaust set, then swap to that for your inspection. Many yards around, can try Kheng keng, got a stock exhaust for my FD there

If the CAT is removed, the Engine Check light sure lightup one.  Of course, the way to fix it, is to REMOVE the check light bulb lor.  Problem solved.

 

So when you turn on the engine before cranking it, did the CEL light up for lamp test ?

 

Anyway, 2008 car, anyhow test will also pass lor.  Only car registered 2014 onward need to worry, it is said to be very regimental lor, a slight mod also will fail the test.

I am not aware of this 2014 "rule" .

This is something new.

 

Yes thanks for all comments, I didn't want to inspect it since it's not due until 2019 year end.

Just want to know what will happen and how to resolve if it does fail.

I had a friend who's been driving rex for many years whom told me he highly suspect the cat was amiss.

 

No CEL though.

 

Maybe I too overly worried.. haha

Pay some workshop to send in your car for inspection. For some reason they can always pass inspection no matter how mod a car is.

Yup.. that's what my initial suspect.
I thought car engine haven't warm up, hence the smell.

But even after I drove back home, stop the car, still smell that strong exhaust smell.

That's why I posted this thread.
