Yup, sure will. I have a set of 2002 GT Takeoffs on my car... and it fit right up with custom shop built hangars on the passenger side. The exhaust is the same. You'll be just fine And Welcome to the board :cooler:

What he said. hehe. They should fit with no problems. If you do the installation yourself, make sure the exhaust doesnt come into any contact with fuel lines, brake lines, anything that can melt or burn...etc.

Ok guys, I got this installed awhile back at Midas...I haven't had any problems with it at all except my pipes are about an inch hight difference. I took it back to Midas and they said they couldn't fix it cuz this setup was for a v8 mustang So I have two tailpipes at about an inch height difference

Any way to fix this? Should I get a second opinion?

Here's what you do.

Go to a private shop and tell them t make a custom hangar so that your exhaust pipes sit at the same height.

Proabably cost you under 30 bucks. It's a simple fix. Midas sucks horse nutz when it comes to custom setups... actually.. midas just sucks when it comes to anything.

What'd they do about the pipes between your cats and the catback? Whatever they put in there is the culprit for your pipe height difference.

Oh yeah, and can you give a parts list for what's included in that
part number? Is it basically just tailpipes?

My cousin was manager at a Midas and now he owns it,
he always did the "custom" work and even did oil changes
and other work that Midas did not do years ago. They now
ALL do oil changes, I guess corporate liked what they saw.

Midas in Terre Haute could do it easily. But most of them
are probably like the one you have sucky...

Cuz even does carry in parts, has for years!

National Muffler shops are hit and miss. When I lived in Mobile ther was a great Meineke on Government Blvd that did all my custom work. But here in Greenville and elsewhere they are expensive and dont do alot of special custom stuff. Problems most of the national shops have High employee turn over and beginners.

I went to National Muffler to see if they could straighten out my problem.

My pipes are now straight and look so good, the only problem I have the old cut off hanger weld marks imprinted. Midas has left there mark in my beautiful chrome tips

I'll ask again since I can't find it in the flowmaster online catalog... is it
basically the tailpipes and some bits of hardware?
