Moving to UK

Would high flow cats make an 8 fail an emissions test in the UK?

I will be moving to the UK this fall for a year and was thinking about taking my 8 with me. I did a lot of research on how to actually bring the car but little on passing emmissions. Thanks in advance.

If there is still a cat in the midpipe, then you should be fine, as far as im aware anyway.

I just move to the UK from Canada and got my MOT done on mine, I have Borla Catback on it and didn't have any problem passing it, excepted, I need a fog light installed at the rear of the car !! Which is causing me a big problem !! I wanted to get the original part at mazda (the nice triangle light rotaty sign ) but it doesn't fit on Americain bumper car ! I need to order a entire new rear bumper(no problem so far) but it doesn't come painted, and here in the UK ...I CANNOT BELIEVE THE PRICE TO GET IT PAINTED !!!
$ 105 pounds for the light, $ 150 for the bumper and $ 430 for the paint !!!
