Does anyone know if the exhaust system from a 94-95 Cougar/T-bird V8 will connect / replace the single line exhaust system of a V6?

Well, $40 compared to $400... hmmmm.... Also, this is the wife's car.

I'm saving the money for my Mark VII to get some 2.25 duals on it!

The car I pull the exhaust off was either a 94 or 95 with the V8. Mine is a 94 with the V6.

When I put my car up on stands to do the 2-3 accumulator spring, I am changing out the exhaust as well as replacing the rear main seal THAT ALWAYS LEAKS! Darn Ford's.

As for the height...



Been there done that...

Thanks guys, I'm glad to know someone else did it too. I did this on my 89 Conti. Same thing. I found another Conti at the yard with a dual set up. I had to modify the exhaust on it to get it to fit. Hope I don't have to do that to this one.

Where did you get the picture from the stock exhaust setup? I need one to study for a 91 v8
It's from a 1995 Ford Service manual on CD. See if there is one on the internet or ebay. They run about $10 or so.

Mine is called: Ford Technical Service Information Electronic Publications

I wish I had one for my 88 Mark. I don't know if they have one for 91. I think they started in 94. Check ebay for a Ford Service manual book for your year. I have one for all my cars, or I have the CD.

I have the Haynes version and all they show are the cats.
Pardon my French (so to speak), but Haynes sucks. The books are too general but do come in handy sometimes. The best book to get are the Ford Service manuals.

There is a plethora of manuals for 91 Ford TBird / Mercury Cougar on Ebay:

Not bad prices either. $15 for one of them (shipped to my door).

Here it is!

What do you think?



My V6 now has dual exhaust.



Well.. sorta kinda.

It is quieter now that it was and I have a little bit of a rattle from one of the mufflers hitting one of the rear end sub frame parts. I am going to let the metal of the new exhaust aclimate iteself to a new envroment. It slapped right in with little hard work. The worse part was the rubber hanger just in front of the drivers side half shaft.
