Works exhaust

Post by cpr1 »

Looking to buy a works exhaust system from manifold right to the centre exit silencer for a medium tuned 1275 driving through rubber couplings, any suggestions for something not costing an arm and a leg🙂 as shipping, VAT and additional duty will add up too much!

Thanks Cpr1

The only true "Works" type exhaust is the Maniflow one sold by the likes of Maniflow & Sommerford, these do cost an arm & at least a good foot & a bit. If you want a "Works" exhaust this is your only choice:

Add to this the manifold,

My personal choice would be a decent LCB with an RC40 system from MS.

You can always chop the silly rolled edge off.

Having just had a look while sorting these links, I note the price difference isn't as much as it used to be.

Still, I hate centre exit exhausts as they make the back of the car all sooty.

I was thinking LCB with RC40 for mine, but do I need the three branch manifold version as the LCB could foul the rubber couplings?

You can get an LCB that fits with rubber couplings, but for some reason it is almost double the price.

Somerford resell the same Maniflow systems, at a mark-up of course…

GEX117 is quite original looking, although not ‘works’. I have one on my car, it has dual crimped boxes with side exit.

A single box side exit version is also available.

I’ve got a maniflow cooper freeflow here with a stainless link pipe for an RC40 suspect that would do the trick?
I've got a 69 Mini with a 1046, Cooper Head and a four on the floor.

Can't resist a reminder that when it was first offered at ST dealers it was £15..... (and from photos was slightly better made than the current replica).

At that price even then we carried a spare on the service car roof rack but it occurs to me that I've not noticed a complete one on a works barge's roof in photos.

Not a Megaphone ? https://www.med-engineering.co.uk/manif ... rcm-system

Bit pricey, but something about a Megaphone , they do a road version at a bout half the price, but its out if stock….

Thank you for your replies, most probably will go for a Maniflow LCB and an RC 40 from Minispares.

Absolutely love my Maniflow Mk1 Works exhaust. Made really well and sounds fantastic.
