another exhaust thread

I really like the look of those fat pipes that you can see under the 03 and 04 cobras. How can I get that look on my 02 GT? can i buy a kit from AM. Will the cat back kits for the cobra bolt up on the 02 GT?

I've always wondered this too but I would think that you could since on the IRS they just go underneath it all and on a gt you could just have it do the same with maybe a little modifying if you figure it out let me know please!

Nope. Not without scraping over every little bump.

Re: another exhaust thread

IRS clears the ground a lot higher than the SRA. Also a big reason the pipes are ran under instead of over, aside from the aforementioned detail, is that IRS has a much larger range of motion moving up and pipes over the axle would be damaged or in the way.

With a SRA you can't run pipes like a termi can just because you'll have 1"-3" of ground clearance at best. You'll knock the hell outta the pipes. Haha.
