Default Gallardo Exhaust

When I bought my 2006 Gallardo on 7th January, the salesman stated that the car was fitted with a " sports exhaust." I must say it certainly sounds like it !

Absolutely brilliant, particularly on the over-run when it pops and bangs out the back.

However , it seems that " cat by-pass pipes " are fitted as opposed to a complete exhaust system.

I have no problem with that, but can someone explain exactly what this is ? If catalytic converters are by-passed, would it have an adverse effect on emissions , i.e. CO and CO2 ?

We have a fairly strict Department of Transport Annual Test over here in the UK. The car must have passed the emissions test last July because it has a current pass certificate.

Cat bypass pipes simply are hallow pipes like regular exhaust where the catalytic converter should be. They sound great and increase performance. You may occasionally get a check engine light but there is nothing wrong. You will however be emmiting higher emmisions and its definitely possible you will fail emmisions testing.

I'd be surprised if they can sell you a car that won't pass emissions testing. I'd guess the dealership would have to make it right.
