Question Question about dual exhaust

Hi everyone I just joined the forum today been lurking for a while and I had a question I was hoping to get answered. I have searched this forum among others about dual exhaust and have had my question partially answered or not at all. As I am looking to get dual exhaust on my 2005 V6 like some many others here is my question. On Craigslist I have found someone selling a GT H-Pipe with cats along with some GT mufflers and I was wondering what else do I need to convert to dual exhaust besides the H-Pipe & the mufflers? Also would this route be cheaper then buying a kit? The person is selling me the H-Pipe & the mufflers for $120 is that a fair price? Thanks in advance hope t have my question answered!

Sounds like a good price for the h pipe and mufflers. If the mufflers don't come with hangers then you need a pair for the driver side. In addition, you need a left intermediate pipe (walker dynomax part #55517). The bumper will also need to be cut on the driver side to accommodate the new muffler. The h pipe will have to be slightly modified to fit but could be easily done. Other than that, you should be good to go. Installation should be anywhere from $100-150 maybe even less

Thanks also any idea if it would be cheaper if I bought the intermediate pipe or if I had one made at the muffler shop?

Not quite sure. Jegs.com has the pipe for $45 so I bought it today haha. I originally got quoted $400 for a full exhaust system (mufflers excluded) once I get a new quote for just the installation and the custom h pipe I'll let you know! Kinda trusted the internet price over a shop's price cuz they have to make money. Just my opinion

Don't know why this hasn't come up yet, but the pipes from a GT are 2.5" in diameter and the ones on the V6 are only 2.25" so you'll most likely run into problems mix-matching pipes like that.

I'd suggest just buying a proper true dual conversion kit. It'll come with everything you need and can be completely bolted-on. Pypes has an okay kit for $500 and Ford Racing has a top-notch kit for $700ish. It may be more expensive but you pay for what you get.

You're right. Forgot to mention that. Therefore, I bought the left intermediate pipe, which is 2.5", so I would suggest buying the right intermediate to match if you did what I did. Sorry for the
confusion dominicano!

Hey your PM box is full i'm a little confused haha I went to a mechanic I know and he quoted me $160 he said maybe even less he needs to see once he installs it so I happy about the price. But i'm a little confused about the intermediate pipe which one do I need the one you originally told me about is for the right side so is that the one I need for the GT H-Pipe or do I need to buy one that say's left? Thanks
