installation of dual exhaust on '97 v6

Hey what's up everyone I was wondering if anyone has installed Flowmaster Mustang Force 2 Dual Catback exhaust on their '97 mustang or similar style mustang because Im wondering on whether I would have to buy a new set of pipes with it or what. Comments appreciated

With a catback, no- No new piping. It uses the single pipe after the Y and ties in there. Some hangers need installed, thats it.
I had the 40's catback. Then replaced it with true dual Flowmaster 10's. Examples to hear the difference BELOW:

Yeah but, catbacks are not real dual exhaust. Just dual muffler. You need to cut out that "Y" pipe and extend a mid-pipe and mufflers or like mine which is just 2 separate pipes making it divorced duals. Know what I mean??

I think so I am not getting them now I just figured I would ask someone who has for when the time comes I put dual exhaust in so remove the factory Y pipe and replace it with what because I still wanna keep them catted for the regulation garbage so I don't have to deal with being in trouble for that mod being that I'm in nj and I think they have to be catted

The "Y" is after the cats. I still have my cats. Give me a few and i will give you a detailed explanation with pictures of the whole thing before and after. I am at work right now but I'll take a break shortly and hook you up with some drawings that show it all and what to do-

Re: installation of dual exhaust on '97 v6

Here is some quick reference material. The exhaust system is practicall the same for 94-04 Mustangs. When you are purchasing tail pipes & mid-pipes, you have to purchase your model generation though. Example 94-98GT, OR 99-04GT mid pipes and tailpipes are what you will get for your V6 (Depending on which year your car falls under).

Here is a write up on "HOW TO":
Installing a GT-takeoff dual exhaust system on a 99+ Mustang V6

---------- Post added at 05:00 AM ---------- Previous post was at 04:51 AM ----------


So, what you see is that you can cut out the "Y" pipe. Buy a "GT" cat back OR install a "mid pipe", then your choice of 2.5" offset mufflers, then lastly a set of "tailpipes". Just remember to get the correct year mid-pipe or tailpipe (94-98GT OR 99-04GT), they are sold under the GT parts section. Hope that helps!

---------- Post added at 05:21 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:00 AM ----------

one last thing, I promise- A lot of people buy this kit and attach a GT catback to it. It fits on perfectly after you cut out the "Y" pipe- FYI:
