Question what about this exhaust............

Sup all. I want to buy 2.5 cat back exhaust system soon and I was lookin at a Ford Racing V6 Dual Exhaust (99-01)

All those are is the GT exhaust. If you are wanting that system, find someone with a GT who is changing their exhaust and buy it from them. I bought Mach 1 exhaust for 50 bucks. Just shop around.
And if you want to use different mufflers than the GT mufflers, you'll prolly come out cheaper going to an exhaust shop and getting them to fab up all your pipes. Do not buy that kit you posted, repeat do not buy. You need to get rid of your stock Y-pipe in favor of either true duals (what I have) or and h/x pipe.

that exhaust is definitely not worth it like said above you could either buy GT take offs mach-1 take offs or whatever and just swap out the mufflers or have an exhaust shop fab up a system for you for much cheaper, i went with a Mac Y Pipe kit but ill eventually have it fabbed up to true duals down the line

Ditch the y-pipe. Go to an exhaust shop with the mufflers you want and the tips you want. Tell them you want 2.5 inch true duals run with these mufflers and these tips. You will come out much cheaper that way.

Haha...I was talking to the other guy more than anything. Just ditching the y pipe was meant for you.

Mufflers = whatever you want. You can buy the mufflers from the shop...but unless you have connections it'll be cheaper to get them online. As far as an X-pipe, you don't have to have one for your V6, it is an even firing engine. Unless you just want an x-pipe run the true duals instead, save time and money.

2.5 inch exhaust is FAR to much unless you have a power adder so just buy oem gt take offs fro 125 bucks~ and slap em on, if you want more sound add diff mufflers later on nothing you do will make it sound amazing... only half decent till you hit 3k rpms .... mellow tone is the only way to go for a v6.

and go TRUE dual exhaust not fake bolt on ... just have em fab the gt cat back with a daul exhaust adaptor (to bolt/unbolt the exhaust for what ever need) or just have em bend a couple peices of pipe and weld her on.

if you really feel like dishing out the cash for your stang and don't want to get take offs, which by the way is not a bad way to go, you should get a 2.25-2.5 inch system for a gt cause its cheaper and have a shop fab it upto fit yours. it will fit if you bring it to a shop and its a lot cheaper. get a bassani, magnaflow, or flowmaster. bassani can get a bit pricey cause they use stainless steel, which won't rust and comes with a lifetime warranty, but it might be worth it to someone who plans on keeping their for more more than 10 years. its all up to your budget and your taste. moreso the budget is the issue with most of us.
