I have done a back yard install on my car, but I am not sure if it would be different for yours. I had never done anything like that before and it was pretty straight forward. My advice is to take your time and make sure you get your tail pipe(s) lined up the way they should be. I just used ramps to do the install. It was a little snug under there as I am not a small person, but it went pretty smooth. Once you get everything hooked up and tightened down, have someone start the car if you can and check all of your connections for leaks. I wouldn't let the car run too long as it will heat things up down there. lol. Oh, and if you have rubber hanger brackets like I did, make sure you have some WD40 on hand. It sure makes getting the hanger in and out a whole lot easier.

Other than that, it is pretty strait forward. Just take your time and make sure everything is snug.

Dont waste your money on a X or H pipe especially with a stock motor and have your exhaust professionally installed with the money saved and have some left over.

Your headers on your 6 come together into a Y. If you really want to put on an X or H pipe you will need to cut them and weld the H or X pipe in place. Your best bet would be to pick up a bolt on kit like a mac or magnaflow kit. It's very easy to install and can be done in about under an hour. You may still need to chop your stock exhaust off since you might not get enough clearance to snake it through so if you have a buddy with a saws all/viscerating saw then ask him to help. I installed the MAC catback on my car. It has a nice low tone and I'm very pleased with the whole thing. I did have to go to ford to pick up the missing hangers it shouldn't cost more then $40.00 for all of them.

just got done installing a o/r h pipe in my backyard on my 88 ramps would of been nice but I found it sometimes to get to the bolts on the flanged where the h pipe/header meets its easier to go through the fender well with a wrench then using a ratchet from the bottom to hold the nut from spinning. and for every flange, tighten one side a few turns then do the other and repeat until fully snug or it will leak from being one side not tightened enough.

I used ramps on my install, it definitley made it alot easier to lign everything up. I had the hangers installed by a dad's friend and I took the car home and just did it myself. This was back when I had the MAC Y-pipe kit so it was easy!

Drilling or welding is required

you can buy a dual exhaust adaptor kit and then slap on any GT cat back.... but the adaptor kit has to be welded in after a given area is cut to be removed... thus not a back yard install.

my exhaust was all stainless with flowmaster muffers including tips it ran me 300 which aint bad. That was installed at a shop also.
