Re: exhaust help

It will not bolt-up.

You have two options. Buy the adapter or have an exhaust shop cut your y-pipe after the cats and make new pipes from there to the catback.

Re: exhaust help

If you want a nice rumble at low rpms, look into some aftermarket longtubes with your choice of muffler and have a shop weld it up for you.

The GT exhaust can go on once you install a legitimate "V6 dual exhaust conversion kit". The GT mid pipes will connect from there and the mufflers and then tail pipe will go right over the axle. Dynomax made the one I used(M#89302). PaceSetter (M#82-2921), STEEDA (M#16065), and L&M (M#P822920)
Put one of any of these on your V6 and you can go with any V8 (94-98) kit you want to. I would just recommend trying to keep it 2.5" or probably 2.25" piping.
Good Luck!

Re: exhaust help

Well the only way to get it is longtubes and a chambered muffler.

If you want the rumble...I had a 97 catted h pipe 2.5 piping and 2.5 tips and flowmaster super 44s. Go to YouTube and type in 1997 mustang v6 flowmaster super 44. Look for the vid with the username Branman2012

Re: exhaust help

as said above buy a dual exhaust adapter then a GT catback should work once you pick up a set of exhaust hangers that you are missing

the issue with just having the Y pipe cut off and true duals welded on is just that... welding them on means they cant easily be unbolted to access the transmission. If you need to get at it you will have to cut the pipe off. They may can weld on flanges and bolt/unbolt the exhaust. They should use stainless steel ONLY in 2.25 inch diam pipe custom bent of course and make sure they clear the axle area high and wide for future lowering plans

some ***** about the gas lines, GT's run their pipes the same way so no issues there as the pipes will be somewhat close to the gas lines.

Re: exhaust help

the adapter will have to be cut/welded on. it wont just bolt up. The only bolt up system would be to replace the Y pipe entirly with a high flow cat or offroad pipe that has the dual exhaust bolt up ends for a GT catback.

long tubes wont help you much power wise and are not worth the trouble.
