I've been seriously considering upgrading the exhaust on my recently acquired 95 SC. But I'm having a little trouble locating a source for the parts. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Buy the mufflers you want in the diameter you want. Take the mufflers to an exhaust shop and tell them what you want done. Like a true dual system, x or y pipe, 2 1/4 inch or 2.5 inch diameter etc. As for manifolds, check the parts for sale, extrude hone your stockers, go with kooks or any mustang gt manifold, but you will have to modify the steering shaft to get the mustang manifolds to fit.

Thanks for the replies so far everyone. I guess I should have been a little more specific on what I'm looking for... :)

I want to install a "cat-back" type system for the performance increase, but want something very quiet so that I continue to "fly under the radar". Something stainless would be nice. I've tried the aluminized material in the distant past and have been less than impressed. But if it's my only option, I have no choice.

I found a couple systems mentioned in the sticky at the top of the forum, and thought they might fit my needs. But none of them seem to be available anymore. I guess 15years out of production will do that...

I don't plan on getting out of hand with spending money on this car. I just want to do a few things and enjoy driving it so I can keep my project/show car nice. So that being said, $2500 for an exhaust system is a little out of the question.

And on the manifolds: Port the stockers or bite the bullet on some headers?

600 bucks isnt bad for ex. manifolds. Take your car to a reputable exhaust shop. You can create any cat back exhaust in any size and any metal. :D

Cat back isn't going to get you much in performance increase. My suggestion would be to cut the "Y" out and run true duals back to the stock mufflers, or talk to a muffler shop about something else to fit your needs. For what they want for cat back systems ( if you can find one), you can build a dual setup and be happier. I had more money tied up in ONE of my Dynomax Ultr Flo mufflers than I did in my custom down tubes, H-pipe, and routing the dual 2.5" pipes to the rear. Just my opinion.....good luck with how ever you decide to go.
