  • MG Maestro Turbo Exhaust

    Morning all, I'm just thinking its time to renew the exhaust system on my Turbo (#68). During the restoration we patched up the original exhaust, but it's now looking and sounding a bit rough. Is the Turbo exhaust the same as the EFi? ie parts GEX 111013/33221/33166? My local exhaust supplier has offered to build a bespoke stainless replacement, but has this already been done elsewhere? (I would hate to "re-invent the wheel"). Finally apologies if this has already been discussed elsewhere on the forum. Cheers, Colin.

    Hi Colin, efi exhaust has a smaller bore size. Rear box is Maestro Turbo specific., central box and downpipe are the same as a montego turbo but scarce. If you can get a stainless one made up, I would go for it.

      I managed to get a montego turbo exhaust for mine and just cut the rear pipe of the backbox down to the same size as the original maestro turbo one. Its just a bit longer.

        But definitely not the same as the EFi version. The downpipe is different as it comes from the turbo not the manifold and the rear tail pipe bit is a different shape due to different bodykit. Also, the bore is larger (I think) on the turbo, but possibly the same as the turbo diesel

            Thanks for all the feedback chaps. I'm leaning towards the bespoke stainless steel solution. Will keep you posted.
