TT Mk1-3

The Mk1 was a very straightforward straight through design made of 57mm mandril-bent 304 grade stainless steel pipe.

The Mk1 was made in very low numbers (est 6) by Trevor Taylor and the Exhaustman in Mitcham in 1998. It came without finishers and was unpolished. It represents the traditional TT exhaust and TT Mk1 #1 still is permanently fixed to MGF Red19.

Following Trevor's untimely death production of the MK2 followed again only in very limited numbers in 2005 (14). This was a different design based on the Mk1. After a brief break the original Mk1 exhaust system was recreated as the Mk3. Again only 18 made in all forms including 2 TT Mk3R. R standing for racing specification.  

Due to popular demand the Mk4 was created again as another take on the original TT Mk1 design. See the following pages for the information regarding the Mk4.

Unfortunately the only person who knew exactly how many MK1's were made was Trevor Taylor himself, but we think it was only about 6. They were only available for F fitment as the TF hadn't arrived yet, they were never polished, had mild steel flanges and always looked dull grey like race pipes. The silencer box was straight-through and made from 6" Stainless pipe, making the construction very robust.

The MK2 was made like the MK1 but with a shorter silencer. They were available for either F or TF fitment and had 2 options for finishers, either the polished standard TT (2-1/4") or a welded-on 3" finisher not unlike the new TT Mk7.

Only 14 of the MK2 exhausts were made.
