New headers ac drip

Hi,

So i know some of you guys always have great ideas and i was trying to think of a way to guide the ac water that comes out of the firewall away from my new long tube headers to prevent any problems in the future. Any ideas?

And btw bbk longtube headers with o/r x pipe and borla atak cat back sounds absolutely crazy.

i attached 2 youtube links of the exhaust.





let me know what you guys think

and people always say that longtubes are a pita to install....

i did it all by myself with 2 jacks, ramps and jack stands and it took me 2 1/2 days with taking my time making sure i do everything correctly and lots of breaks because it was over 90 degrees out. dropping the k member was a piece of cake. i did it all with hand tools but i am never doing that install again, it was bad lmao

i really like how the car screams all the way until redline now before when i had the pypes m80 mufflers and a o/r x pipe it would only scream from 3k rpms to like 3,9k rpms and these borla mufflers might sound raspy and random but they have such a distinctive tone to them i have never heard any mustang sound like mine now, it turns heads EVERYWHERE. So yeah let me know what you guys think of my new setup

what problems do you imagine (rust/cracks)? In reality the amount of H2O is insignificant I wouldn't worry.

yeah im afraid of rust and the amount of water my a/c gives off is pretty big since i live in south florida and right now its always 90-95 degrees out with high humidity, its like a jungle here haha but after i drive for a little while it sounds like WW2 down there for a couple minutes maybe i could find a hose that fits the drain plug and route it away from the headers.

That would be the easiest route
