Exaust question

I would like to put daul exaust on my car, that one pipe coming from the center of the car just dont cut it, it restricts flow so much its not funny. No one is parting out their SC. Is there a setup from a mustang i could get? Having them made would cost quite a lot. I could buy them from a mustang real cheap from a junk yard. Does it have O2 sensors after cats? If it does i dont see them.

Also.... would i need the computer from an SC to put a supercharger on it?

Re: Exaust question

There are tru-duals out there. MN12 birds have only 2 o2 sensors and they are in front of the cats.
Word of caution: you will need some sort of resonator to keep the drone down. I went with hi-fkow cats, dual 2.5"to a 3.0" around the gas tank and split back out at the IRS to mufflers. after about 100 miles the drone gave me a king sized headache. My SC 5spd had 1 cat on each side then a 3rd one which was 2-into-1 then a small itty-bitty resonator. My SC auto only had 2 cats and a larger resonator (both are '93's)
The left cat on an SC has the 'in' on top of the cat and caused the exhaust to do a 90 degree turn inside the cat, I would recommend using straight flow thru cats (mine are for a large V8) It's last emissions check was very low.
