Re: gt takeoffs question

I bet you could if you got one from the 94-98 years. So it would have all the same bends and stuff.

Re: gt takeoffs question

Hell yeah you can man...just get the GT catback and have a shop fab it up. You could have them cut off your stock y-pipe and weld divorced pipes to the cats or buy a Pacetter adapter and the catback bolt right up.


As far as sound...it will sound pretty good...more like a quieter GT. If you want more sound, you can always swap in some mufflers...that's no big deal. The nice thing about a GT catback is that it is 2.25" like your stock setup...so no loss in backpressure (torque).

hmm ok im gonna tell u guys what i currently have and tell me what u think would be best ok? i have the duals with the y pipe **** and i believe my exhausts are flowmasters not sure what they are exactly because they came on the car wen i bought them. what would be the easiest way to have true duals? what if i bought that adapter from am? would that give me true duals? how does that work?

Re: gt takeoffs question

You could do that, but if you already have dual piping from the y-pipe back, I'd just have divorced pipes made.

Have a muffler shop cut off the y-pipe and weld 2 separate pipes to the cats. This is the easiest (probably cheapest) way to have "true duals". The car will probably be a little bit louder and freer flowing than with the stock y-pipe.

I used the mufflers & tail pipes from a gt. I had the muffler shop cut behind my front two cats & run new piping into the h-section from a GT. Then bolt up the gt cat back. You need to get the passenger side hangers for the muffler & tail pipe. If you want a stock look, get a pair of tail pipes from a 94-97 gt or cobra. 98 tail pipes work but use the 99-04 style rear hangers. It don't sound bad it's just a little quiet.

Eh, h-pipes are basically for sound in the v6's case, and you'll get similar sound with divorced pipes.
Performance gains aren't going to be huge compared to a divorced setup...might as well have the shop do the divorced pipes and save some money.

Just having those 2 separate pipes will be way better than the y-pipe.

Re: gt takeoffs question

GT take offs are the way to go cuz of the 2 1/4" pipe diameter compared to all the aftermarket ones with the 2.5" pipes .. I'd go with the divorced setup with the GT take offs and add some flowmaster 40's if the car is too quiet.. you can kill some of the raspyness off by putting glasspacks in before the mufflers for a deeper tone
