Yeah but the stud is what broke off

Nah... I shopped around on the net. Joined clubs like this one and you get info. I know shops around me that will pass my two mustangs cause they have o/r pipes" no cats ". Pay under the table! Money talks and its not much. Example "inspection here in NYC is $37 pass or fail. Before you get inspected you ask the guy with money for him. It cost me $60 per car per year! Not bad and not much $$$$$.

I think you have to cut it flush and drill it out. Then you can use a bolt in its place.

Anybody here do that themselves?

Damn sonic you was warned! Hopefully it will work out for you. That's why I didn't do mine because of this. You will get this done bro! Patience is the key here. Wish I could give you a hint of help. Good luck!

Ok mine broke off flush. So I had to drill mine out. You can get new studs at your local auto parts store. You need to take that one with you when you go or if you get it out. You need to heat it and get vise grips and try to get it out. If you break it off again you will have to go get a long drill bit to be able to reach it. You can clean up one of the bolts that came out from the other end of the stock pipes it has a clip on it so you don't have to worry about holding the bolt when you try to tighten it. You will have to drill it at a little bit of an angle you can not get a straight shot to drill it but it will work I know I did it and it is working fine. Be sure to use protective glasses to keep the metal shavings out of your eyes. You are having the same problem I had and it sucks. A one to two hour job took four for me. Taking the manifold off is the only other option , and that is even harder to do than drill it from below. Good luck man.

It's a threaded stud so if you can get a pair of vice grips on there it will come out. Then just go to Ford and buy a new stud. Or you can buy a bolt

Just and note my brother is the one who done most of the drilling and stuff he is really good at those type of things. Oh by the way he is the one who broke the bolt to start with., just saying. Lol No if not for him it would have been a real night mare.

I do want to give props to my brother. He is the one who done most of the work under the car lie drilling out the old bolt. Oh by the way he was the one who broke it off in the first place , just saying. Lol No if not for him it would have been more of a night mare than it was. Thanks little bro.

I got the x pipe bolted up tonight guys! Once I greased up the stud and put it back in the manifold the install was very easy! It took me about 45 mins total! Now when I come back from Maryland I can bolt the rest of the catback on finally

The X pipes have been shown to produce only a little bit more hp over an h but going from the stock mid pipe with cats yes you will gain some Hp. A tune would optimize your gains and benefit you the most
