Dual Exhaust

I have a 99 v6 mustang and I am wanting to put dual exhaust on it, the question I have is if I can get an h pipe or x pipe off of a mustang gt and put it on, or do i have to strictly get one off a v6. Everything is stock on my car except wheels and stereo. What all do I have to do to make it happen?

go h pipe, it sounds better. and a local shop can custom make a catback system (if you supply mufflers) and weld it in. should run $300-$500 depending on muffler and shop.

From brent,
Look here before posting thread.. I copied it for you. Lol!

Welcome to the forum!

Exhaust system
Straight/H/X pipes are all a matter of personal preference to sound. We have an even firing engine so we don’t benefit from equalizing the pressure in two exhaust pipes with an x or h pipe. I wouldn’t go Offroad Midpipe, the v6 doesn’t sound to nice without cats. It gets whiny above 3000. You can have a shop cut your Y pipe behind the converters and weld 2 straight pipes to a set of GT take-offs or opt to have a fully made set delivered to your door. I own MAC exhaust and it sounds nice. Bassani sounds amazing on our cars. Borla is a tad pricey but you pay for the best. Once again foollow Lesson 3 and buy the whole system at once. It’s just easier that way.

Well i was thinking about getting an exhaust that i can dump off. I don't have the cut outs in the rear bumper and Im trying to keep it fairly cheap but still get that low rumble. And if I'm not mistaken, a dual exhaust does improve a little in performance?

have the shop make u a custom h pipe using ur pipe thats on the car now . buy some flowmasters and have it dumped after the rear axle. u can pretty much dump whatever setup u go with but i would say go with an h pipe. x pipes sound to ricey on out sixxes.

You can have a shop cut your Y pipe behind the converters and weld 2 straight pipes to a set of GT take-offs.. That's my setup. Straight pipes, dynomax mufflers, gt take-offs, stainless dynomax 2.5 tips. 300$ everything labor parts and took them 3hrs... Sound and screams badass for me!

i usually get out for a couple hundred when it comes to exhausts...things that'll make it cheap on you is to...

-look for tail pipes from any GT from 94-04
-heck i'm currently running fox body tail pipes (so yeah they'll fit too)
-find used mufflers on CL in good condition or buy new (generics can save you a good amount of cash here i.e. thrush mufflers)
-you can find used midpipes on CL just about any day which can sometimes be cheaper then having a shop fab one up

if you can't find tail pipes or want to make it even cheaper...

-just after the mufflers dump the exhaust...have them use some turn down tips (they can make them cheap)

for dumps i reccomend having the tips at an angle and not just straight down (vibration galore if you have it facing straight down)

I was looking in to thrush mufflers. Somewhere i heard they used the same design as flowmasters. I was thinking about getting the thrush welded mufflers instead of the turbos, they seemed more old school. And can i just go to autozone or somewhere like that to get pipes? There was a gt getting parted out on cl but i wasnt sure if the pipes would fit.

Re: Dual Exhaust

An exhaust shop will make the gt pipes fit just fine...and thrush welds are a good choice over the turbo series....they sound like a flow 40 basically

I was trying to get thrush welds for my 00 stand but the local shops could only get them in center offset not offset offset. Anyone have any idea where to get the offset offsets?

the center offset will fit just fine...i ran some thrush welds from advance for the longest time...the shop will just angle the mufflers a bit more to give it a perfect fit...not a big deal at all. here's thrush welds on an older sixxer of mine that i just had dumped before i found some tail pipes i liked.


this was the cheapest exhaust i've ever had made...$40 a muffler new...$50 in tubing from the exhaust shop...and another $50 in install
