Tintop engine swap. Mot

Hi
Just wondering on the emissions regs, I have a 1985 car, can't remember the exact emissions for it but basically if it runs on all 4 it passes the mot. I'm swapping the engine to a 1996 one, which would have ran a cat back in the day.
Question is should the car be tested to the newer engine standards or will I get away with the old one?
(I think I know the answer already, but if someone in the know could confirm I'd be grateful)

Chris

It will still be tested as a 1985 car, and 1985 emission limits.

Well that's a result, I was thinking I'd have to fork out 100 for the local "friendly" tester, but I'd rather have it legit coming back after a driving ban!
