I am in talk of a possible trade of my mustang plus some cash for a 2001 GT with a motor swap to a 2000 svt
cobra R 5.4L motor. I know the motor is rated at 385hp at the crank and the guy has put flowmasters and an h-pipe on it so it probably sounds good.
I know a decent amount about mustangs, and the set-up he is running is a 2.5 inch. For that motor that seems way to restricted! With this motor and my plans down the road to add some hp, I'm thinking my first choice should be to swap out for a 3in exhaust set-up. What do you guys think?
2.5 just seems way to small for that output, especially since it is close to a 03/04 cobra stock which people tend to run 3in exhaust on those.
