Can you get a pic?
And if it is that and not a cracked manifold, you should still reroute that ac drain as a preventative measure, the new edge's are really bad about that.

It may just be a bad connection between the collector and y pipe.

I did a full exhaust on a chevy truck that the flange where the collector and the pipe join had rusted and one of the ears where the bolts go to had broken off. Sounded similar to yours. I'm not too familiar with the mustang exhausts as I haven't done any, my sixxer already had an exhaust when I bought it.

Its the manifold under the A/C drain pipe, the Exhaust tech i talked to said that the V6's always do it because of where ford put the drain pipe (yes ford knew about it) because of the constant heating and cooling the pipe will crack and eventually break (mine broke going down the highway at 70mph, scared the ever loving $h!t out of my wife's dog) so if yours sounds like that i'd look into getting ready to fix it. Mine didnt crack at the manifold on that side, it actually cracked a little below that just after the flange. (then about a year later the other side cracked at the flange on the manifold)

I haven't rerouted the drip .....mainly because I'm actually hoping it will do it again so i can have an excuse to put the 94-98 stock headers that i have on. (i bought them when the driver side cracked before i realized the collectors were different sizes)

Any luck finding out how to get the headers to bolt on to the collectors? Lol

yea, i think it was slowsix said you'd need the collectors off of the same model, but what i'll do is just take them there and change them out (or have them to it) then just have the shop put on/make something that will fit them XD

A set of 94-98 stock headers, and do divorce duals, keep the cats at the front (I don't think there's any rear cats on the 6ers, at least mine doesn't) and a set of flowmaster 10s, dump it under the cockpit aimed straight at the ground for really loud, or a set of the flowmaster tips and pipe it wherever for a more tame but still aggressive sound.

I may be selling my entire exhaust system soon, flowmaster 50s, in favor of a catless 10 series divorce dual with dumps..

Short tube headers are short tube header, you wont see much a difference. If they crack dont put shorts back on, go Long Tube Headers, i mean mine as well at that point. You will actually gain and hear a difference with those!

Just saying mine as well right

if I'm not mistaken, can't you actually lose power with long tubes on a 6er?

Some of us can't put on long tubes. We have to stock with CARB legal shorties. I love and hate California

And that is probably the only thing I truly like about the city in ohio I live in... absolutely no e-check or inspections. They would have locked me up and threw away the key if they'd had to inspect my jeep mud toy.. lol

No you will still gain from the mass flow of the exhaust. The worst part is just putting them on, they give you hp but they will make you want to blow up your car when u put them on.

Isn't it, more hp less torque with long tubes, more torque less horsepower with shorties?

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's more hp with less torque, it's a little gain. I know u get better hp at higher rpms which shorties lack
