The guy with the pypes also has straight midpipe tht he said he can give to me with 4 o2 extensions.

He may tell you that but you should find out for yourself, he could be telling you that just to get them sold.

Ask him for measurements, how long the pipe is, and then check yours and see if it would fit. I'm just trying to keep you from spending money on you can't use.

I heard there fine but they will rust out because they're painted not stainless steel but for the $$$ it's hard to beat and I heard they will only fit to a pacesetter mid pipe not sure I have not ha personal experience with either that's just word of mouth

You can find them with the Ceramic coating on them!.. I would suggest saving up and getting new ones that are ceramic!...

Dam I feel bad for tht guy really sucks, I've been searching on this forum for info about headers and about pypes it's been like 50/50 some people say its a perfect fit others say they suck. All I have is this guys word and tht he's a mustang guy like me. He said they fit perfect on his 03 gt.

He is also selling them for a reason... As someone who has long tubes I'm telling you, I wouldn't just pull my LTs off and sell to make a couple hundred bucks. It's way to much of a pain

Kool those are a great price! I went with pypes longtubes even though everyone was against it lol. The guy also threw in a midpipe but the midpipe is straight pipes so it's going to be loud. I am planning on putting a x or h pipe later on
