Your wanting tailpipe and muffler hangers?

Try:

1: Local Ford Dealership

2: Exhaust shops can make them.

3: Junkyard

I would go with the OEM hangers from ford personally.

I also believe http://www.dallasmustang.com has them

Also check http://www.v6mustangstuff.com/exhaust.htm $39.99

Also, about clearing the rear bumper on a V6, put shims under the rear hangers so that the pipes hang under the stock V6 bumper, or get a GT bumper.. I wouldnt cut a V6 bumper, that wouldnt look soo good.

Also, ask the muffler shop to cut off the Y-Pipe just behind the cats and weld on some pipes to connect the cats to the GT-takeoff flanges. (this will give u straight pipes)

I'm pondering the shims now. I figure ! 1/4" should do it, but I won't really know until I get right o it.

Muffler shop I'm talking to about putting my takeoff's on is charging 110. That is to cut y pipe, make the pipes between where it's cut off to the take offs, passenger side muffler hanger, both tailpipe hangers, dropping the axle slightly to work the exhaust over. Just get a muffler shop to make them. Otherwise they're about 40-60 bucks for the hangers from ford.

that's probably what I"ll end up doing. I just figured I'd cut the guess work out for the shop...hearing all the horror stories. Thanks all!

Well, I got the take-offs put on, and I must say that'with the factory mufflers, it's really quiet. I ended up just having the shop use their own hangers.

So here's the damage ...

100 bucks, with the custom H-pipe.

since I took the single flowmaster off, I have to say that I don't miss it too much, with all the interior ressonance. Anybody got any ideas on quiet(er) mufflers that don't resonate but flow more?

Dynomax Ultraflows
Magnaflows
Borla's
Bassani


These are all flow thru mufflers. Dynomax and Magnaflow have shown to outflow the rest . But the difference in Horsepower claims on dyno's is relatively small.

So the takeoff's by themselves aren't loud? Didn't figure they would be...and 100 isn't too bad man

Nah, not loud at all. It did open it up a bit, compared to thesingle flowmaster. I thought the guy did a pretty good job too, he spent alot of time making sure it was all lined up evenly. anyone in the OKC area wants to know where I went and who did the work, let me know.
