Best fitting System?

I went to a few local muffler shops, and asked how much it would be for them to install a dual exhaust system that i brought them. All of them said it would depend on how well the system fits. My question is, which brand exhaust system fits the 3.8L V6 Mustangs the most like a glove? Also, one muffler shop said that leaving the y-pipe, then splitting would cause a problem because the y-pipe would rub the axle if i hit a hard bump. Is that true at all? Also, what is the most trustable and cheapest online site to get a stainless steel system?

run through the tech, there are so many exhaust threads . . . seems like 2 a week . . .


there's no way a y/pipe would hit an axle.

the best systems come from:

bassani
Spintech
Borla
flowmaster
dynomax

and MAC


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

How long do you think an aluminized system will last in the South? Has anybody been doing good so far with an aluminized system?

It generally rusts from the inside out, the exhaust gasses and water will kill the pipes. It depends on how much you drive.

bang for buck is low. I'd do 1.8RRs and a Predator before I went to Dual exhaust . ..
