V6 Dual Exhaust ...

Has anyone ever seen QUANTIFIED results on running a true dual exhuast (as on the GT) on a '94/'98 Mustang V6? In other words, real dyno numbers (either engine or chassis)? If the V6 is only putting out about 200hp, would I just be better off running an effecient single exhaust?


'98 GT equipped w/Koni, Eibach, Cobra R rims w/Yokohama tires, Cobra brakes all around & 3.73 gears. Also a Boss330 4.6 Cobra block w/PI heads & stuff from Accufab, ARP, Centerforce, Comp Cams, Fidanza, K&N, Mahle, Manley & Borla exhaust w/Mac Pro Chamber thrown in for grins & giggles.

5.0 mustang and fast fords did a bolt on test for a 99+ 3.8 mustang. I have the issue somewhere, but can't seem to find it.

If I remember correctly though, the true dual exhaust system gave about 6-8rwhp.

I wouldn't go the single exhaust route, simply because it just doesn't look as cool

Like cougarstang said they did a test which I think was a 7rwhp increase, but cant remember exactly. I wouldn't stay with a single exhaust setup unless you had a turbo

If you dont have emissions in your area go with a catless Mac H, or Pypes X and use a GT takeoff catback. Dont forget you'll need a passenger side hanger for the muffler/tip if you are going to have tailpipes.

definetly dont forget that hanger. the people i bought my car from ran duels on it and didnt put that hanger their, needless to say after about a month the car had an exhaust leak. muffler shop said no big deal. to days later i was driving down the road, heard a clunk and then a hell of a loud noise. the weight of the exhaust had pulled the collector right off of the factory headers.

200hp? Out of a 94/98? No...try about 140-150.

As far as what exhaust, go with what looks good, sounds decent, and is at a good price. On an otherwise stock vehicle, the most you're going to get combined out of bolt-ons is about 15rwhp. You're not going to see anything significant for the money unless you start massaging the intakes and heads, or go with some sort of a power adder. Like all things, the sum of the parts is greater than the individual accomplishments.
