Converting from single to dual exhaust?

I've got the I6 with single exhaust in my 66 coupe. Has anyone put dual exhaust on one of those? I'm looking for small performance boosts, and carb/exhaust is one of the roads I'm looking down. Can anyone help me out here?

Thanks!

Personally I haven't done it, but I remember in the 80's when I had my Sprint 200 coupe. There was a company that offered a header that had three pipes going to one collector and three pipes to another so you could really have a true dual exhaust. I don't know if anyone makes those anymore, so you may have to get a cat back exhaust.

$400 just for the headers! Ah, that hurts!

I didn't think it'd be that expensive.

Oh, well. Can anyone suggest a carb/exhaust combo to go along with my $400 headers? I don't know much when it comes to this. All I do know is that the exhaust has to allow as much air to escape as the carb takes in. Help?

:)

Like I said, I don't know much about exhaust setups. Educate me!

I've heard of catback exhaust, but don't know what it is. (I guess I can go look it up after posting this.) Do you think it would be a better choice than converting to dual exhaust?

Well, a cat back would be dual from the cat. or muffler back and single from the manifold. I have a cat back on my Cougar and enjoy it. I guess it depends how much you want to spend. A true dual will have two mufflers, but then a cat back would as well. I don't know where you live but I would think that you are not required to have a cat. converter on your Mustang. So, a so called cat back would just be split to two before or after the muffler. Without the cat. it would probably sound deeper. It depends alot on what your looking for in performance, sound and spending capital. My suggestion would be to try and find a classic Mustang meet to get to hear different types and see what you like!

www.clifford.com ! This is probably your only source for aftermarket parts for the i-6 in terms of performance. They have a manifold that has 3 single barrel carbs. They also have a header that can give you true duals, or just single. check it out. If you want euthasiasts sites let me know and I will email you them. I myself have the 200 and want to soupe it up.
