What ever happened to Stebro Exhausts? They had nice chrome and black tail pipes with the red stripe.

I'm with Barry. The best is none. None seem to have any plating worth 25 cents.

Because my exhaust melted a hole in my bumper. The $9 I spent at Advance Auto Parts seemed like a good investment after that.

Just because you don't need one doesn't mean there isn't a need.

For a RBB a chrome down turn that extends to the end of the bumper will work nicely.

I remember my brother had on his brand new 1979 MGB, an Ansa exhaust double tip and it had yellow strips around the back sections. And slanted exhaust tips.

It didn't melt the bumper either. He had it on there for years.

My MGB is like a former girlfriend:

When I was in my 20's I had a megaphone on a 1.75" exhaust pipe... made the exhaust note sound like a V12 at 3K RPM.

What's with all the nasty "Get off my lawn" comments. You don't want to post something positive why not just STFU!?!

Have had Monza exhaust for maybe 15 years. Double chrome tip with the yellow stripes The whole system has held up wonderfully!

Monza Dual Chrome tips resonator Cost = $75.00

I have a Camaro 3.4 V6 and have a resonator in the exhaust pipe (2 into 1) plus the Monza resonator and it makes a wonderful sound. No mufflers. It only would annoy the neighbors or the police if I was at WOT. Under normal circumstances it makes just enough of a sound to alert the guy in the SUV that a little sports car is nearby and on the rare occasion I want to listen to some music or have a conversation with the passenger I can. Bottom line -- I love it.

I liked the old Ansa's on my Saabs. Nice tone. I don;t run one on my B.

I prefer the Ansa...

I run a custom bent setup with a glass pack resonator and the Ansa muffler in the rear.



"One test is worth a thousand expert opinions"--Alvin "Tex" Johnston...Boeing test pilot.

73 MGB. Tires: Round, black, hold air. Oil: Sometimes old, sometimes new...always slippery. Oil filter: Yellow, usually full of oil. Carbs: 2 SU HIF. Distributor: Yes. Headlights: Not that bright but bright enough. A bunch of other stuff most cars have but not really important enough to itemize. Oh, wait...it has a cool sounding exhaust with stickers on the chrome tips. Really slays the ladies...
