Question V6 exhaust set up.

I was wondering if any one could point me in the right direction for dual exhaust on my v6. I had someone tell me that a 5.0 "h" pipe should fit the stock manifolds, but, I'd like to be sure. I have a 2004 v6 and would very much appreciate any help.

Buy that adapter and then hook up any GT/Mach 1 catback for 99-04 and you're good to go!! I'd also suggest a GT bumper with the dual exhaust cut-outs so the exhaust will look better. Also, you're going to need another hanger for the tips.

GT take offs with some pro force mufflers from summit would sound really good and should be under $300

Hey, I have a 98 v6 manual, heres what I did

MAC Shorty Headers (2.5'')
MAC H-pipes (2.5'')
MAC Cat-back (mufflers and tail pipes from a mustang GT) (2.5'')

The whole system was pretty expensive but it increased my gas milage and added a lot of power/torque. People keep confusing my v6 for a v8 (sometimes a good thing sometimes a bad thing lol)

I have a 2 1/4cat back magnaflow system id sell you for $200. I used it for a year. You would need to get your own x pipe/hpipe or keep your cats.

shorty headers are pretty much useless on a stock car, they offer about the same gains as a CAI but are more money, LTs however will get you about 9 rwhp
