Honestly? It will probably cackle like hell and I don't like that on mustangs, you may be able to get a pair of flows for cheap on Craigslist, maybe even look into the thrush welded chamber mufflers

Most of those aren't vehicle specific. So just look at your current mufflers. And see if you need center, offset, etc. To make the insulation easier.

I think they were Insynerators from Lawson Industries. I was seriously thinking about getting them. Needed to buy a tuner first.

Steve's aren't normal glasspacks though. The cherry bomb style don't sound good imo.

No. They are round. I have seen them in person but its been a little bit. But what makes them different from normal glass packs are they are single chambered like the 10s

What is this cackle you speak of...mine has glass packs, cherry bomb. Its loud sounds pretty good imo. Idle sounds a littly cammy sometimes. Maybe the cackle...when u let of throttle sometimes is a lot of gurgling coming out. I've always liked sound of mustangs..put flowmaster 40s on truck. Sounded great. I don't see much difference in sound in mine other than loud.

Sounds like a truck idling and when you rev you get this cackle or worse if you downshift and have the motor slow you down.
