Gen 1 Mini Scorpion Manifold with high flow sports catalyst - One 1.6 R50/R52 / Cooper R50/R52 / Cooper S R52/R53 - 2002



Scorpion are proud to announce their brand new 4-2-1 exhaust manifold for the 1st Generation MINI - R53, R52 and R50.

Hand built from 304 stainless steel in England, Scorpion have developed a 4-2-1 exhaust manifold, with interchangeable 2.5" (63.5mm) de-cat pipe and high flow 200 cell sports catalyst, allowing you to quickly change between a track and road setup. We have also included a third sensor port, just after the first, for those who wish to install an AFR gauge and additional sensor, and include a blanking plug for those who don't. The manifold and sports cat also includes new gaskets.

As with all Scorpion Exhausts, the manifold and pipes are covered by an 'original purchaser lifetime anti-corrosion and manufacturing defect warranty', and the high flow sports catalyst is covered by their 2 year warranty. The high flow sports catalyst is the same as Scorpion Exhausts use in their F56 MINI, S3, Focus RS and Golf 7R manifolds, so unlike other manufacturers, they do not have a limit to the power they can handle.

SMNX014 - Scorpion Manifold and Cat Pipe

Please note that the de-cat pipe and cat pipe will not fit other manifolds, and vice versa; the manifold will not fit other de-cat and cat pipes.

As with all aftermarket manifolds, the heat shields may need bending into a different position to clear the change in pipework

    Car modification laws in the UK and elsewhere are in place to ensure drivers who want to enhance their vehicles adhere to certain safety standards. While modifications are a great way to alter the look and performance of a car, some may also affect the handling and overall safety of the vehicle on the road.

    You may need to inform your insurance company of any modifications made to your car – whether they were already installed when you purchased the vehicle or if you have done them yourself. If you don’t tell your insurer, any future claim you make could be turned down. Worse still, your insurance could be completely invalidated. Modifications carried out to any car may affect the vehicle manufacturers warranty.
