Re: NG TF V8 exhaust

Hi Graham, Has your car really got a cat on it?? I didn't think MGB's had them fitted. It is difficult to tell on my computer but is it still green? I have a photo of your car but it is green and a much lighter shade than the photo on Facebook.... Generally the 1.8 'B' series cars have a single exhaust and the V8's have twin exhausts. I can't see how twin exhausts would alter anything except aesthetics....

Re: NG TF V8 exhaust

Hello Paul,

At the moment the car only has a single exhaust (via a T pipe from the 2 exhaust manifolds) running down under the passenger's side to a single muffler and exhaust at the back. So I thought (if it's possible) to fit twin exhausts, either parallel to the existing system or straight down either side. Adding a cat will pay for itself via the reduction in insurance premiums and of course, everybody loves a twin pipe.

When I got the car there was a load of bumpf from the previous owner (Ken Ferriday) including a copy of Which Kit? from Jan 1999 with him showing the car off. The green in those pictures is the same as the green it is today. Probably my poor photography skills, rather than a respray.
