Which exhaust tips?
Regarding exhaust systems and determining which exhaust tips to go with, I have to ask:

Will these Scott Drake tips work with 2.5" exhaust systems? http://www.drakeautomotivegroup.com/Stor...px?wid=141

If not, are there similar tips that will, and where to get them?

Thanks in advance!

I have been looking at these. You can order directly from the company for a better price.


They have a 2.5 in - 3 in out with a similar look as Scott Drake.

I believe Scott Drake part is 2.25 in and may be hard to fit.

Hello Eric,

Wow, I cannot find any specs on those tips. Plus, looking through the Ford Master parts info, I cannot locate the G part number in D1ZZ-5255-G . I looked at the Scott Drake catalog for the 71-73 Mach 1 dual exhaust kit and it had the pipe size listed 2.25 inches. So, I would assume, I hate to assume, that the D1ZZ-5255-G exhaust tips will install on the 2.25 inch pipes.

You might want to call a vendor and ask if that is the case on the 2.25 inch size.

Where can we find some, at a decent price, that the outside will not rust after about one year? The Chrome look is nice, but dog gone it, looks like crap after a while.

those 71-73 will not work with a 2.5" exhaust unless the tailpipe tube is turned down on the ends. even then the fit of those is horrible. I had to cut mine up and resection the band clamp to fit them correctly
the original tailpipes are fitted as Left and right versions. the scott drake version is just a right side version if i remember. the issue is how the band camps sit in relation to the fuel tank and fuel lines.
if you install the tailpipes as is in an accident they will puncture the fuel tank, so i had to cut the clamps off and reorient them i also remember i had to shorten the neck like 2 inches on both sides.
i used the kit exhaust with the 2.25" turn downs on the ends so the tailpipes ends would fit.

i just remembered i also cut vertical slits in the necks of the tailpipe end pieces because even the turn downs were a little big. Man i had to butcher those things to fit.
Wow - who knew?




The Cherry Bombs are nice, and look a lot like the Scott Drakes. The Gibsons are cool, too... and well... they're Gibsons. I also like the Pypes... and since the rest of the exhaust system is Pypes... I might just go with them.

Glad I posted this! Thanks guys!

I got these for mine. They replicate what I have on mine now. I think they look good, unless you are trying to replicate the 71-73 Mach1 tips.


1973 Mach 1 Q code 351 4V, 9A paint, standard interior, 3.50 rear, C6 trans.
Those are nice, too. Hafta add them to the short list. Big Grin

All of the others are 3" outlets... I think the 2.5" outlets would look just fine as well.

Checkout the Pypes PVT-52. I might look at replacing my peeling and rusting tips with these.

When I got my exhaust system built at Ed Hanson's in San Diego, he had a huge selection of tips. I ended up going with 3" Stainless Steel Double Walled Slash Cut. They look really nice and compliment the factory cutouts in the rear valance perfectly. The 3" doesn't look too big and when they are clean, the look great!
