Can't do that here. Emission checks are too strict. Your vehicle is measured and physically examined every 12 months. And not code reading. The exhaust gas is actually sampled and measured. If it is not within tight values it is a fail and can no longer be used on the road until repaired and retested.
No, the Passat was gubbed. Whatever had happened had happened since the last test and wouldn't pass another.

I wouldn't mind hearing more about your unichip piggyback system. Is this something you can install yourself? I almost bought Copen from Grunt on Copenworld, but he ended up selling it to his niece. He's living in Japan now. I think he had D-Sport ECU on it. I don't know much about that, either, or whether it helps the fuel statistics.
Unichip needs to be installed by a qualified person and dyno tuned.
If you search for Unichip on Copenworld all the detail and results are on there.
D-Sport ECU is essentially a standard ECU with the rev limit raised and the boost cut raised best I can tell. It's not programable like Unichip.

You wouldn't install either of the systems to save fuel anyway. At about $1200+ for D-Sport and about $1800+ for Unichip they would take a while to payback.

If you want a mighty boy I have a couple up for grabs...

Also, try bypassing the boost control solenoid. It should drop to 4-6psi and avoid the richest parts of the fuel map.

Who knows? The same way it can be chip-tuned to enable the fitment of a straight-pipe, it can be reverted in order to pass the test.

Gaaakk!! You're not wrong! Don't think I'll be going there. I've got no reason to want more grunt out of it. I just want it to last as long as possible. Anybody who gets to own one of these is very lucky, imo.

Hello, I'm in Sydney.

I'm not sure how much sophistication is on that ECU but it's not uncommon to swap out or in different brands of ECU on JDM cars.

On https://www.pcmhacking.net/forums/index.php which is basically a Holden ECU forum, people added ODB ports to various ECU's. It might be possible to add one.

Welcome anyway. I'm interested to see what you do.

I realise that but he could be pulled over at any time. If I had been a traffic car I would have given him a pull. If you'd seen the car you would have realised it was not an enthusiast. It was just a clapped out banger. Not long from the crusher.

But anyway, unless it had been previous to the DPF mandate, it might have still been illegally DPF-deleted even if the motivation was to ease the maintenance.

Here in Australia, it's legal to have a hotdog muffler on a turbo car. That's what I have, which is straight-through after the cat.

I doubt any cop here is going to be complaining about a 1.3T or whatever it is with a cat-back straight pipe. Except if the car is post 2016.

Lot's of JDM cars here get some sort of Exhaust upgrade. Emissions are only checked when the Authorities develop an attitude about the mods of any particular anti-social type car - which is sortof half acceptable.

If the COpen had 1200hp then it might get an emissions check but before that probably not.

Car was actually a 2008 (I said 5 years old but it was in fact 9 years old - checked dashcam) and that was before DPF were fitted to UK vehicles.
