I installed the Peco header and exhaust on my 1980 MGB last year, and while I
was pretty confused from looking at the parts without any instructions, it was
fairly straightforward to actually put the pipes together. It was a tight
squeeze getting the header in place without pulling the engine, but it
eventually went in.
The system doesn't use clamps to connect the pipes, but I had read a magazine
article that suggested using a special cement to make sure there are no leaks.
The mechanic who replaced my sills said that it would be cheaper to use cement
sold for chimney repair from Home Depot. It came in a tube that fits into a
caulk gun and did the job very well, although I'd recommend fitting all the
pipes first to make sure that they are all where you want them to be before
One of these days I plan to get a front muffler installed. The exhaust is
louder than I'd like, especially when trying to sneak in or out late at night
without waking my family. I had ordered a front muffler from Proper MG and
waited about six months before finally learning that they were no longer being
made (and each month I was told that it was on the next boat and should be
arriving in a week).
