TS TS50 questions

Have recently become the proud owner of a T3 TS50 having traded up from a AU2 XR8 and have a couple of questions I’m hoping someone can shine some light on

1. Had the factory exhaust replaced, and it sounds magic but the ford dealership salesman (yeh I know what does a salesman know…) advised leaving the cats in place as the only other T series they have changed the exhaust system on wouldn’t idle when cold but was fine when the CATS where reinstalled. My XR ran good as gold without cats and I can’t see why the TS50 would be any different as the sensors are further back up the headers. Anyone had any experience with this issue or am I being feed and tall one….

2. Anyone know the part number for a K&N Air filter for the TS50… or can suggest an alternative (local supplier hasn’t got the T3 listed in the K&N catalogue)

3. Anyone know how may T3 TS50 produced, and how many made it to NZ

Re: TS TS50 questions

Welcome to the Forums!

There was a TS down here that got it's exhaust replaced - they fitted smaller hotdogs where the cats were, but I've never heard of anyone having any problems...

Is the air filter that bigger problem? Haven't heard of anyone replacing the one in the T3.

Re: TS TS50 questions

For some reason the auto/manual column's won't line up with their numbers but you get the idea.

Re: T3 TS50 questions

Thanks for the feedback

I got a silver one, all black interior and one of the 152 auto’s, yes interesting numbers, are these numbers NZ only or total produced?

On the K&N, I’ve used these filters on my last 2 falcons (EL XR6 and AUII XR8) and although in each case I’ve upgraded the exhaust at the same time I would suggest they do make a difference…. you can hear the air flow compared to the standard paper units.

Yes…. I might have those cats taken out (take the suck it and see approach) what’s the worst that can happen, I have to put them back!!! Why did the guy you mentioned ford fanatic use hot dogs over straight pipe? nose/drowning?

Re: T3 TS50 questions

Yeah, it was to get rid of the cackle the exhaust made, I guess it's a matter of taste. We've got a 3 inch Coby system on our AUII XR8 that has more of a bark than a rounder note that the guy with the TS was looking for. No droning either way!

I'm not saying the filters don't make a difference - we've got the K&N on our XR - just wondered if it made that bigger difference on the T3. I don't actually know the answer!

Re: T3 TS50 questions

By the way, congrats on the purchase! Saw a silver one cruise through town today... Oh my!

Those figures look like overall, either that or all 3 of the TL's came to NZ!

Re: T3 TS50 questions

The T3 T-series use the airbox from the mustang so look up Cobra mustang in the K&N filter catolouge and that one should fit.
