Exhaust

I just bought my wife a 1998 V6 convertible. If I put headers and a o/r x pipe on, will I need a MIL eliminator? I know that you would on a V8 that year model, but have no clue about the sixxers.

You should be ok, but I wish you luck on the headers.

Well I have a 2000 and Ford basically made the same car from 94-04 they just changed up the body style a little bit. And to get to the left set of headers, its gonna be a b*tch you might have to get underneath the car and do it from there.

Well in 94 and 95 had the 5.0 and it is a very pain in the *** to get to the headers so but i think usually u would have to go under the car to connect it to the exhaust any ways

Removing the passenger side header would be the hardest and

@op you will need mil eliminators because you will need to pass emissions

The only good thing about x pipe is they sound good at idle. So if you don't ever plan on driving and just starting it that's your best bet.

If you do decoded to go with the headers I'd go with the Shorties on the v6. Not sure why but that's just what I've heard and expect it to be a whole day project for a whole new exhaust set up.

Incorrect, you do NOT want to go with shorties they add nothing.

I was looking on Latemodel Resto and could only find shorties. And they came as a Pypes kit with o/r x and mufflers. I don't live in an emissions county so I'm good there. Where can I find LTs and an h pipe? I want to avoid a ricer sound for sure!

no problem

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MAC-Long-Tub...r#ht_641wt_689

here u go. modding a six is pretty fun if you do it right. nothing compared to an 8 but putting the right mods in it can blow alot of v8's out of the water
