Just in case anyone wondered, there is no difference on a stock 3.8 h-pipe from a 5.0 version.

Whatcha mean man? The intermediate pipe off my son's 3.8 isn't anything like the one off a 5.0.

Do you just mean that the header locations are close enough that you could replace a 3.8 Y-pipe with an H or X pipe designed for a 5.0 and go true dual exhaust? Based on the fact that the blocks seem so similar in dimension (where it matters, anyway), this doesn't sound like much of a stretch.

the off road h on the 5.0 car is slightly wider at the collector and is a lot larger in diameter... if you use a set of shorty headers for the v6 and the 5.0 h it should work...

I believe the point of the thread is that you can replace the stock "y" pipe with an "h" or "x" pipe designed for a 5.0.

The 5.0 being only slightly wider at the collectors implies that a little bit of bending is all that would be required to do the swap successfully. I'll give it a try on my boy's six in the near future.

IDK but I have long tubes (mac for the v6) and had to have the mac h then bolted onto a 5.0 set of bassani true duals. One thing to think about is where the port thing for the sensors are.
