Haha. Damn really? They look nice. Way better than the huge weight of a exhaust manifold I have. What year is ur mustang? I might wanna find one also. I've been wanting to change that thing out since I got mine.

Did you have to change any of your exhaust or are they the same length?

The take out wasn't so hard actually. Just took out the top of the manifold and unplugged the whole injector fuel rail harness . Moved it to the side then unplugged hoses power steering and ac and just pulled it out . I unbolted the tranny and left It there. Didn't need to drop it

And just put a Jack under the front of the tranny so it won't fall down and brake your motor mount
