better than stock
the Y pipe is much to long and needed to be cut to size, brackets needed holes drilled to make them fit as needed. The exhaust sounds stock at idol. rumbles more in the car then outside( mufflers sound hollow) exhaust is up under the chassis as far as possible however it hangs somewhat lower than the stock mufflerHelpful (0)

Sound and look good
Definitely gives my pony a deeper tone, especially as it’s a V6, although I do have to add I have an exhaust leak so if I didnt have that, it would be even better. Looks good from the back, although does scrape occasionally on speed bumps for some odd reason, my pony isn’t lowered. Other than that, does appear to immediately oxidize a little at the tips, but that’s expected. Took about an hour at a shop. Couldn’t get it over the axle without removing the shocks.Helpful (0)

Pipes are shipped a little long. Trim to fit, could be louder. I will have to remove cats next.Helpful (7)

Would have been 5 stars
The only problem that i had was that my mechanic had to do some minor fabrication as this did not direct fit my 1998 v6. It cost me 4 hours of labor. When i planned on two. The sound is great. I love the feel of the low sounds idling down the road. The only other problem was one tip hangs lower the the other not noticable to some but if your a car guy you notice.Helpful (4)

installtion went good. had it done. professional, about 3 hours. nice looking, clean. sound is ok. thought it would be alittle louder sitting still. but it is a 3.8, so compared to the stock sound. much better. getting on it the sound is much better. still not a v8 sound but for the price and look. very happy.Helpful (4)

I had to drill new holes into the rear exhaust hanger mounts that are supplied, due to mounts are off set to the holes. Noticed the driver side pipe sticks out more than passenger side. But besides that, its a really good system and sounds good.Helpful (4)

Very poor fitment
This kit did not fit my car at all (2000 V6 Convertible) and required way too many modifications to prevent it from scraping or clearing the axle (my car is stock height). From the videos I've seen this exhaust sounds great but I have no idea how other people managed to install this on their car and I wish it would have fit mine.Helpful (5)

Pypes dual exhaust
Super fast shipping as usual. This product is great as long as you get it on sale. I got it for about 309. Other than that I'd go with the Macs dualexhaust for 379. But if you can get it for $309 or so it's well worth it. The y-pipe will need to be cut which is not really a big deal. The passenger side tail pipe does not have the correct Bend to it but it will fit with a little tweaking of the exhaust bracket hanger. Yes this was a very difficult install but it does fit once you get things together and work everything out but definitely use some grease inside the pipe so that you can twist them because you will be doing a lot of twisting and turning to get it adjusted. one good thing is that it comes with the dual exhaust hanger kit which is a must in order to fit this system. It does look good when finished install and adjustment. And if you want straight tips instead of the turndowns it's very simple to just cut the end off where it turns down and slip straight tips over it. As for the sound at idle it's pretty close to stock but does have a slight little Rumble and when getting on the gas or with it revving over 3 Grand it has a nice Rumble from the rear but regular driving is fairly quiet inside the cabinHelpful (5)
Will this exhaust need a hanger kit
This cat-back would come with all the required exhaust hangers to install it.
I've been told that I don't have enough room for dual exhaust because my fuel tank is moved over more to the passenger side not leaving much space. Any way I can get around this?? 1998 3.8l v6 gas tank is 14.7 gal.
The fuel tank does not change positions between the V6 and GT.
I'm sorry I don't know very much about cars, but my catalytic converters are bad on my Mustang and I was wondering if this came with them and if there was room for o2 sensors. I'd rather buy this and install it with my dad rather than have my stock ones cut out and re welded back in.
Can you switch the mufflers that it comes with or will it only work with the ones it has? I'm looking at SLP Loudmouth II Center/Center Bullet Style Mufflers would these work?
You can switch the mufflers out yes, however, if replacing with the SLP mufflers you may need to do some modifications to get everything installed properly.
Does this require a tune afterwards for it to operate better, or would it work perfectly fine without an after-tune?
This product will operate just fine without a tune.
The Pypes Street-Pro Dual Cat-Back Exhaust will fit on the 98-04 V6 models with any issues yes.
This item does not have a CARB EO number, it would be best recommended to check with your local ordinances to better see if this part would be able to be used without issue in California, it is not creating any excess emissions, so it should be able to be used.
The Pypes Street-Pro Dual Cat-Back Exhaust would not fit on the 1997 due to several differences in the exhaust and hanger mounting locations.
This will not fit on the 3.6L Mustang exhaust.
Unfortunately Pypes only offers a 2.5" kit for the 1998 to 2004 Mustang V6.
All parts of the Pypes Street-Pro Dual Cat-Back Exhaust - Turn Down Tips (98-04 V6) will be completely stainless steel. Also the kit will come with all the hardware needed for the install.
It bolts up to the factory Y pipe that has the catalytic converters, not the headers.
By replacing the mufflers on the Pypes Street-Pro Dual Cat-Back Exhaust with Turn Down Tips, with a smaller muffler, it will decrease back pressure, which will allow the car to breathe. If the vehicle loses too much back pressure, it can cause a loss in power. Depending on the modifications, the loss in back pressure may become an advantage. If you would like to contact us regarding your specific application, we would be more than happy to assist you. On a side note: the mufflers inlet and outlet are offset in this exhaust, and a replacement with the M-80's would require some modification.
