Re: Exhaust ?

Holy shnikes...but yes it should fit. Don't go by the picture, it will have to bolt up to your factory y-pipe. It'll work, but if you plan to do any engine work I'd recommend running duals without the y-pipe.

Re: Exhaust ?

WOW, can't win on that one, I tried to clear up your hyper link and there is just no way around it... Anyhow, Yes that should be a direct bolt up.
I don't know about others, But i have been burned by crossroadzdirect they owe me a shift knob, and i could never get ahold of them, or a return call. So i gave up. Maybe its just me thought :dunno:

Re: Exhaust ?

no biggie on the html. its impossible, lol


To get around the Y pipe, you could either buy an H/X pipe to bolt up to the exhaust manifolds, or you can cut the factory midpipe, and run straight pipe from the cats to each side of the exhaust. If you were to do that I would get the GT cat back, cuz the pipes forward of the mufflers will be longer because they don't have to compensate for the reverse Y to hook up. so that would save you a little money when you get the Y pipe cut.

Re: Exhaust ?

Almost forgot, someone, i forget who makes an H pipe adapter. basically you have the stock y pipe cut and weld this on, and then a GT catback bolts right up and you have an H pipe. I did that on my v6.

Re: Exhaust ?

Quite honestly, it would be cheaper to just take it to a reputable exhaust shop and tell them what size piping you want and what mufflers. Then they can custom fab you a system that meets everything you need for it. For the most part, piping is piping, just make sure the shop doesn't put in any unneccesary bends. I'm sure they could do it in stainless too, if that's what you really want.

Re: Exhaust ?

I had mieneke do my h-pipe and they welded up an SLP exhaust. If you plan on doing any more mods you might want to go with true dual. You will be gaining a smidge of horsepower and letting the engine breathe better. My recm - get an exhaust made to bolt up on a GT, buy another muffler hanger and two tailpipe hangers, and have a local shop cut the Y and build you a custom H. I got hangers for roughly 30 bucks and the install was 80. Good Luck.

Re: Exhaust ?

the BEST way to do it is buy an adptor pipe (steeda makes one and pace setter does as well) and have them cut off your Y pipe area and put this sucker on. Then any GT dual exhaust will bolt right up. This will allow you to bolt/unbolt the exahsut for repair work etc etc. If you just weld it up its a PITA to work on and may have to be cut off to get the tranny out~ A local shop may can fab up a bolt on connection as well or the whole system~ its best to take it around get quotes and see what they will do.

I agree with him. Its much easier and cheaper ( in my case anywho) to just take it down to a shop and get them to do it. Saves time and money. Theres no need to get your hands dirty unless you want to.. Also it seemed a little expensive to me.? maybe prices differ in location? I put V-Force Straight duel catbaks ( not sure if this is the "correct lingo" ) but i've been complimented on my sound and rumble from other people with Flomasters and dynomax mustangs.. I searched around on the internet and found sound clips of different mufflers and i chose from that. You might wanna do the same b4 you drop the cash.

Re: Exhaust ?

I like my setup, BBK X-pipe (with cats) and Magnapacks. Got a video of it, bad mic though so it sounds different on the video.

Will make a new video tomorrow, with a MUCH better mic.
