Exhaust kit choice - 351C 2V and Hooker Comp Headers
#1
Time has come to order my new exhaust kit for my 72 Grandé. I like the Flowmaster sound and I wanna go for Delta 50 series mufflers.
I just found this :
http://www.mustangsunlimited.com/itemdy0...5259H99+01

I have installed Hooker Competition headers so this kit looks good to fit with. Anyway the kit is for 65-70 Mustangs so it will need some cut and bent work to fit right ? I have a rear sway bar but no staggered shocks ; it's not really a problem, I can go to an exhaust shop to have it done as some people here advised me to do.
What do you think ? Do I need additional pieces ?

I wanted to order a 2,5" pipe at first but I don't think it's really needed as I do not want to race with the Stang.

Is there a reason you don't want to go with this system made for the 71/73 cars: http://www.mustangsunlimited.com/itemdy0...y=EMUSTANG

It also increases the size to 2 1/4"

Because this one doesn't include Flowmaster Delta 50 series mufflers

I just changed my mind and want to order this :

This is the Flowmaster American Thunder kit for 70 Mustangs. Will it fit ? It's a 2,5" pipe and Super 44 mufflers. I know I may have some tweaking/welding job with those as I have a rear sway bar and staggered shocks.

If you think it's not a good idea, please can you advise me on a good kit that looks solid ? ("cheap" do not look good IMO)

If I had your setup, I would go with Pypes exhuast kit:

I personally like the sound of the Violator. You can go to their website or on youtube to hear what the different mufflers sound like.

Thanks ! Looks good Smile Ready to order right now but can't decide between Street Pro and Violator mufflers ! I'm afraid of too much droning

They used the StreetPro for this video and they claim to have no drone or interior resonance which still allows passengers to speak without yelling but yet there is still a powerful tone. Either model you choose, I think will be louder than FLowmasters. Also, if you like serious flow and insane sound, I recommend the Cherry Bomb Extremes. These mufflers are so loud that I can hear my neighbor a few blocks away LOL! Not for me, but if you like that kinda setup, then that's the way to go.

Thanks ! Too loud will be too much Big Grin I loved those Violator youtube clips but it may be a bit too loud for simple cruising with the Mustang, the Street Pros will do the job fine I hope.
Flowmasters looked good and I love their sound. I wanted the classic 40s in the first place but there are no complete kits for 71 to 73 Stangs Sad Pypes is a good compromise.

The Street Pro mufflers look really good and this kit matches my needs perfectly.
Let's go order !! I will OF COURSE post a video here once received and installed !
