If you haven’t made substantial changes your vehicle is mot exempt, you can see what constitutes substantial changes in the link you posted. It’s your choice to mot or not. However as you intend to carry on testing, your entitlement to exemption is academic.

Ok thanks, looks like £100-150 for a session. Is that right in anyone's experience? As a starter for 10, I'm going to put a BDL needle (MG Metro) in my HIF44. Planning also on fitting a Piper MB270 camshaft, I will get my existing camshaft reground to this spec, as it's cheaper, and allows me to re...
