The correct exhaust for my car

Postby pacomb » Thu May 19, 2011 3:41 am

Hello all

As far as I can see on the MOSS catalogue and some others, in theory a 1098cc car like my Sprite mk3 should have a straight forward exhaust. But in my car, there's a twin box exhaust with an L shape at the rear.

I need to fit a new one because the old one is blown and would not pass MOT. Which one should I order?

The numbers of my car:
chassis: HAN8L / 63729
Engine: 10CCDAH51300

Yes, I agree, the spridgets had straight pipes until 1970 when they went to the L shaped exhaust with the resonator.

But the front pipe flanges that mount to the exhaust manifold are slightly different across the years even with the straight pipes. Maybe 2 or 3 versions depending on the year.

I sent an email to Moss Europe and they confirmed that all 1099cc cars had the straight tube. In my case, maybe it was an adaptation of a 1275cc exhaust, because maybe in the dealer thats the one they had when they had to fit a new one or similar.

I was going to order the mgbreakers one, as it´s the most cheap in stainless steel i have found: http://www.mgbreakers.com/exhaust.htm
At 79,95 pounds sounds like a deal. But thet only have one, and no pention to your point of 2 or 3 different pipes flanges, so I am concerned......

I ordered the straight stainless steel exhaust from Moss.

But..... I have read on the "Original Sprite & Midget" book, that mk3 what where for the UK market had a straight exhaust, but mk3 (with 1098cc engine), shippied to EU, had the double transversal exhaust....

So now I have ended with an incorrect exhaust....
