Exhaust questions.

Hey guys,

Wanted to let you all to know that all the engine work I've done, the rebuilding of the heads and all crank bearings and piston rings and everything else attributing to that work has given my engine NEW life. i have had it tested and she is putting out about 230 horses at the flywheel. Happy with that for now.

Now for the Exhaust Question:
I am putting on Pacesetter long tube headers with a pacesetter off road cross over pipe and flowmaster super 44's. i do not have the money to get a tune yet so i'm going to put in spark plug non fouler's for now.

Now for the non fouler's which O2 sensor's do i put them on. front or rear?

and for the cross over pipe there are no O2 sensor bungs so i will have to install them. I have a 30 plus year union welder whom i work with is going to do all the welds on the exhaust. about where should i have the O2 bungs placed ?

Sincerely.

Your clueless Mustang GT owner at times.

P.S. this probably has been discussed already but in my defense i'm still relatively new to any type of forums.

If you're going to put in the nonfoulers plugs, you're going to want to put them in the rear set of cats. Be warned, I hear that if you're drilling out the nonfoulers yourself, they're very hit or miss. I tried to make a pair to use on my car, and all it did was make the car run like crap. If that's the case with yours, i'd try the MIL eliminators americanmuscle sells. I had great luck with those.

Because it's a Non PI motor. They were rated at 220bhp from the factory.

I won't have to drill out the non fouler's , I have a set of 2 that were made specific for O2 sensors that i ordered through Amazon.

Increases the distance between the O2 sensor and exhaust system

M18 x 1.5 thread pitch, length: 46 millimeter

what i will need to do is drill the holes on the cross over pipes and weld in the bungs.

Will have to say she's not as fast and as powerful as a new edge but she now puts me in my seat harder then he ever has.

I am posting more pics in my garage now. take a look and tell me what you think.

Why not just use the MIL eliminators that everyone and their mom runs with success?

already have them on order. but I still have to drill and weld the o2 sensor bungs on the cross over pipe. it does not have them. so i measured the distance on the stock h-pipe compaired to the location of the o2 bung holes on the long tube headers and found the location i need to have them welded in place. I also did my research and found that ( and your right ) the MIL eliminators have a much more success rate then the non fouler's.

Like i said "clueless Mustang GT owner at times "

thanks for the plum slap . LOL

now to do research on long tube header install on a 98 gt.

Ah ok, so you don't have rear O2 bungs is what I'm getting from this. That is weird, every pipe I've ever seen has them.

PaceSetter 82-1146 Off Road Cross-Over Pipe

this one for some reason did not have them. but no big deal , like i said i have a 30 plus year welder at work who is doing all the welding for me.

when it's all done I plan on taking a video of the finished results with sound. hope everybody has a good sound card on there computers. cause it's going to be LOUD and throaty.

Nice, just be aware that pacesetters rust out if you look at them the wrong way. The coating on them is only for shipping purposes, it is not meant to protect the metal in any way once on the car and it will flake/burn off in pretty short order.

Yeah I know, after i drill and have the o2 bungs installed i plan on rust proofing the entire exhaust system inside and out. There is a paint and rust fogger system at work that i can use to internally rust proof the system and it won't cost me anything. and question should i rap each header tube with the fiber glass rap or not ?
