I cannot remember what the mark 4 is based on, but the same thing applies, I think in that the bulldog is shorter than the original car.
So when I brought a marina exhaust , I found I had to cut & shut it with the help of my friendly mobile welder bloke - but my exhaust has a cherry bomb and sticks out the side just in front of the rear wheel, (and is accidentally tuned to the same frequency as BMW alarms at certain revs )

So I suggest that you look for a proper exhaust place rather than quick fit (Mr Exhaust Redhill I know makes stuff up).

 I know Ian Streetfield had his made up in stainless, but that is a very expensive option.

Thank you for your advice. I should have have said that it is a Pinto engine about 1985. We think it might be from a Sierra as it has a 5 speed gearbox. The car is based on the Cortina and I think it  is shorter. I am not sure if the Cortina system will fit even if shortened. I can't take it anywhere as it has no MOT.

Is it totaly missing an exhaust? Otherwise just take the one that is on there off and take it to an exhaust place. (MOT - huh - how you take to MOT station, you drive it with out !!)
