It will if you use SN95 headers, the SN95's ball/sockets are bigger then the Foxes. To the op, some posted a similar question a while back and it was said that it would work. I do know they list cat-backs for cobras separately cause of the IRS. May need some modification to work.

Are you talking about a X-pipe off a GT?.. If so I would give them a call to find out for sure!.. My guess would be probably not!.. Or find a pic of each and compare!..

Thats what I'm thinking too but I don't know for sure!.. A buddy of mine did a 4V swap on his '98 GT, then a couple years later swapped in the IRS setup!.. Said at that time all he had to do for the exhaust was get another cat back system!.. So the X-pipe might be interchangeable between the two but I don't know for sure!..

not true dude. i got 86-93 headers on my 96 right now. it bolts up front to back. at the same token...that means u can do a mod motor swap on a fox and have full exhaust already there. which is kinda cool.

It's most certainly true. The ball(smaller) goes into SN95 socket(larger) If you had SN95 headers you can't use a Fox mid pipe. Get what I'm saying??????

yea, only the catback is different for that application. it goes under the rear end instead of over to accomadate the flexible axles.

Isn't 86-93 a 5.0 pushrod motor?.. And the '96 a 4.6 SOHC motor?...

noooo, its that egr pipe that changes the header part number. on foxbody that egr is connected further down the h-pipe. on sn95 its on the header. i never heard that stuff bout da ball socket, i dont think that is accurate

Ok

Maybe the aftermarket parts match, but stock parts are different.

yup, that is true. but you can swap the two cause all da way up to 03 is fox body based chassis. putting 4.6 in fox bodies isnt new...not super popular, but definatley not new. and droping 5.0 and 351 in 03 body is more popular though.

Ya I know!.. What I'm getting at is that they have different heads!.. And I don't see how headers from one can bolt up to the other unless Ford used the exact same bolt pattern on both!.. Lol.

The fox-fox4 platform runs through 04'
The fox4 cars are longer then the 79-93 foxes

i think i know wut u r getn at.

the mid section and cat back are the same for 86--03....

the header itself is differnt though from pushrod motor to mod motor if that makes any sense

Don't now the exact number, but when I put a Tremec 3550 in my 1st 95 I had to have a DS made(the spacers were not available then) think the spacers for putting fox t5 in a 95 are 5/8's. It's un-drivable otherwise. It will vibrate really bad

your right...its 5/8s. i had to take a grinder and cut the input shaft down 5/8s as well as the bearing retainer sleeve (throw out bearing rides on). or you can just order the two parts for 86-93 t-5. they are shorter than 94 and up t-5 stuff. they added the 5/8s to move the shifter rearward in the card. your vibration came from the bearing retainer sleeve pushing the clutch disc into the flywheel.....

thats how i mated a 96 v-6 t-5 to a 5.0

but i dont think the car is actualy longer though. i swaped shocks, springs, upper and lower control arms, sway bars, full exhaust (headers to tips) from my 92 to my 96. it was pretty much a straight swap

On the lift you could see where the front yoke was no where near as deep inside the tail shaft, the shifter was further up in the console. As far as the car being longer, this info is easily found with quick google search or Wikipedia, almost 70% of Fox 4's are new/different then the 79-93 Foxes.
