Mine's a 2.5" Stainless Steel system with X-pipe and Pypes Street Pro mufflers... and doesn't have that 'Brappy' sound Flowmasters are famous for. Wink

Not hating on the Pypes kit. I bought it for my car and when I went to install it, it didn’t fit great because I have an 8.8” rear end that’s offset.  I went to local hot rod exhaust shop and there was only about $100-150 price difference for a complete custom exhaust...... plus I’m lazy ? so the extra $150 was well worth the money. And they added in my electric cutouts. I have heard a lot of good things about the pypes kits. Just didn’t work for my application.

Just messin' with ya, Man.  I'm happy with my Pypes set-up, but I'm thinking I wish I would've gotten a set of dumps along the way and had the custom exhaust done as well (bypass the muffler, but route back into the tail pipe... rather than dump right out under the car).


I love my electric cutouts.  They are the bees knees!!!

Badlanz’s electric cutouts. I got the stainless steel y-pipes with it. Also bought the remote control system that opens and closes them with a key fob. That was really cool but kept breaking. Cheap electronics. I just use the standard rocker switch for them now. The cutouts themselves I have had on the car close to 5 years and have had 0 issues.

It appears that Mac's does have a 2-1/4", they differentiate between non-staggered and staggered by saying non-Mach 1 and Mach 1

Sorry for the confusion, I meant Mac Exhaust, not Mac's Ford Parts. They were supposedly working on a 2 1/2" system for staggered shocks.

r Gas was making them for a while, but they seemed to have gone belly up.

I should have known you were talking about Mac Exhaust, I have bought their products before.

There is a local exhaust shop that does mandrel bent exhausts, aluminized or stainless, in any practical size. Due to the close quarters by the gas tank I'm thinking 2-1/2" is probably about it. I haven't found out what they will charge for stainless. With unleaded gasoline, not living on the beach, not driving on salted roads, and not a lot of miles aluminized will probably outlast me, anyway.
