Just had my 1994 mr2 turbo fail emissions, wouldnt do a non-cat test despite what i said because he found the 3sgte under the celica and would only test to that despite it not been a exact match. Picked a good one there!

ask for the VT20 (i think it is) and then speak to VOSA though I suspect once you ask for the failure form he'll change his tune a bit [Wink]

I got him to abort the test and he didnt charge me so balls to him, i just wont go there again. Going to take it to someone who did mine in the past who is going to do it properly spoke to him before hand. [thumleft] , no harm done just a inconvenience.

Your tester is a plank. The relevant document is the In service exhaust emission standards for road vehicles: Eighteenth edition - LINK.

He should be looking up the make and model of car presented, then using the data applicable thereto, not making it up on the hoof.
An MR2 Mk2 turbo is not a Celica GT4. [Rolling Eyes] The fact that they share the 3S-GTE engine is completely irrelevant. Period.
Unlike the GT4 the MR2 turbo was never sold in the UK market hence it is not in the database.* He needs re-training.

* A quirk of the legislation/regulations which works in our favour, [Smile]
