Hi guys,

My current 2-box exhaust had it's best days and I want to replace it.
To me the current system seems self made with standard exhaust parts.
My estate has a MG Metro-turbo engine but is not highly tuned.
What parts do I need to fit my Estate? It must NOT be noisy.
RC40 1,75" ?

Cheers
Harold

A few pics from the current exhaust.
Seems custom/home made.

I have only ever had Playmini and Maniflow on my cars. Both are great but prefer Playmini to be honest, everyone of them has fitted faultlessly and if they are still making them that would be my choice.

With regards to noise i could not say, i have always gone with single box large bore systems but i suspect small bore twin box systems are pretty much the same when i comes to noise.

Thanks Wolfie,

Will 2" be good for a none-tuned mg-metro engine?
I do want a 2-box system to keep the noise down.

As I understood from minispares, for a turbo/estate/2" there is nothing off the shelf that fits plug and play.

Ive got a maniflow on mine with the smaller back box no mid box as the turbo keeps it quiet

I e-mailed Maniflow for a solution, got a reply, but communication goes very slow….
I’ll be patient, hopefully they can make a plug and play set.

I ran a Maniflow twin box LWB on my Estate and it fitted really well. On my Turbo I run a RC40 twin box and its nice and quite. Because you have the turbo flexi joint you can cut the pipe to the required lenght and than you just have to extend the rear if you use a standard exhaust.

@viz139: I think the downpipe is 2" diameter? At he Maniflow website I don't see a full 2" 2 box system for LWB, only a 1 3/4"
What did you have?

Ring Maniflow they are far better communicating over the phone. Tell them what youre after and they will make you something to your requirements. they did for me.

I know Maniflow do a large 2" turbo downpipe but I think the standard one is 1 3/4". Its a while since I did it but I'm pretty sure the RC40 went straight on.

I made some more pictures.
The downpipe seems not 2” but smaller.
The exhaust seems welded to the downpipe.
Not happy with that….
