Flowmaster Dual Exhaust

So I want to upgrade my 2000 v6, and I want a true dual system with an H pipe and the Flowmaster Super 44 delta flow series Muffler. This system has it all. Flowmaster 17281 Header-back System - Dual Rear Exit - American Thunder - Aggressive Sound : Amazon.com : Automotive I am asking if it is compatible, even tho it is made for the 70's mustangs.

Jegs has they're brand offroad h-pipe for around $175 for the 99-04 V6. Then buy a catback for the 99-04gt. Go to some of the performance sites and purchase some factory style hangers and your good to go. The tailpipes will have to be lowered some to fit the v6 bumper cover. Or you can buy the flowmasters, flow tubes, and some 87-93gt tailpipes and they will drop behind your bumper cover like the v6 pipe.

Ok , try this. My first exhaust mod on my 98v6, I found a stock midpipe from a gt and had my exhaust replaced from the converters to the h-pipe. This kept the midpipe in the factory location so I could use a factory catback. I also wanted to be able to remove the midpipe if needed.

i've been looking into dual exhaust and all these different setups for months now. You seem like you want exactly what I want. Super 44s, true dual, cats still on.

I've heard that, and don't quote me on this do more research, that the 87-93 GT catbacks fit our cars, except the hangers are different. This is good for v6's because the 87-93 GT's have turndown tips at the bumper, which complements our problem of not having cutouts. Also, there is not a super 44 catback for 99-04, only super 40s which is lame. HOWEVER, American Muscle sells a 87-93 GT catback exhaust with super 44s for $370 (cheaper than the 99-04 GT catback with the wrong mufflers.)

As for the H-pipe, someone told me that you can buy a "universal" h pipe from jegs, not sure about that (its $50)

Or you can buy the h pipe adapter sold at american muscle that is designed for 99-04 v6's. It says to cut your y pipe and it bolts on after your cats. It allows you to install any 99-04 gt catback, but if you are having an exhaust shop do your exhaust, I doubt they would have problems bolting on an 87-93 GT catback anyway. This method allows you to keep your stock cats (which is good for v6's i hear, w/o cats=

Edit: final cost of parts can be between $400-$500

I bought the kit I linked. My bro and I looked under my car, and we are pretty sure the kit will fit.
