V6 Side Exhaust

I have seen spintech side exhuast running for about 480....this is almost as much as many catback exhausts....would i have to do anything else to my car if i went with the side exit exhaust? Would the exhaust fit right under my stock side skirts or would i have to by aftermarket ones? Lastly, is side exhaust a good idea on a v6?

with the spintechs no modifications are needed- it will bolt right on to your y pipe although i've been advised from others to definately weld on the tips. A;so, the spintechs will fit under the stock side skirts, many other side exhausts will not fit and require specific side skirts to the best of my knowledge.
Spintechs are a great idea... as i've heard they sound great on a V6- I have heard clips (spintechs with stock midpipe) and they inspired me to put them on my 98. I'm ordering mine before the summer
hope this helps

that sounds like a great idea....however, i have read that you should go no larger than 2.25 inch pipes on a v6 exhaust....if you do you can actaully loose hp and backpressure....do you know how large the spintech system is? and will it be a good hp gain for my car?

BINGO..... thats another reason y spintechs are so good... they are 2.25" :thumbsup so if u dont plan on getting a power adder for the stang its the way to go. I emailed spintech about power gains on my car (98) and they told me 12-14 hp and 7lb trq. that sounds a bit too generous- but i guess they all fudge the #'s.

PS- you can buy them on www.spintechmufflers.com- or just call them with the item # and they are very good at answering questions (i've been told).... u may have to call them to order- im not sure if u can do it on their website.

That's pretty conservative, I've seen other tests that netted 16 but now that I think about it, it was with a CAI.

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.
