I'd go with a Long Tube Header setup that is good quality. Get ones that are Stainless-Steel. MACs are not stailness so you will get rust with them.

KOOks and American Racing and SLP i also believe, are Stainless.

what mid pipe would i put after? the stainless works ones are too expensive, so i would probably go with kooks

KOOKs are Stainless. Go with a Header/mid-pipe combo. What i mean by this is, Most headers always have a matching xpipe made for there Longtubes.

If you want KOOKs heres where i ordered mine from.

KOOKS Long Tube Headers with OFF Road Mid Pipe for 3 valve mustang

If you want to place an order with the same website then id make sure you call and ask for avaliabilty first.

You need to buy your headers and midpipe from the same company or they will not fit properly.

i got MAC Longtubes and a MAC O/R H-pipe and it worked just fine and has an amazing sound.... i would rather go with an x-pipe....sounds better. but kooks sound to be pretty common so maybe they will work better for you.... but the MAC thing they make ceramic coated longtubes. i bought mine for 200 brand new and the h pipe for 100

somewhere i saw guys talking about a shortie h pipe and lt`s, but i dont know where i saw it. you`ll probably have to research into it and let us know. its not fair, but its hard to get stuff for the v6`s but i think its getting better as companys figure out the business is there. theres always a custom pipe job from a shop :smoke:
