Re: XY GT/HO exhausts

Check the discussion pages at www.falcongtclub.org someone will know the part number.

The standard GT exhaust isnt "loud" though, its more of a deep rumble, no crackle at all. So not sure if thats what your after. It only actually gets a note to it at about 4000rpm plus

A twin 2 1/2 system should just about do it.

Try to get the pipes in stainless makes any engine sound better than with mild steel.

Re: XY GT/HO exhausts

twin 2 and 1/2, stainless, sounds allright to me.
is that mandrell bent?
a stainless steel mandrell bent system w\ new extractors would be the go, ive heard pacemakers are pretty popular?
any rough pricing on the above? (the complete system), i know it will be expencive, but i might as well do it right.
thanks for your help guys, it is really appreciated

Re: XY GT/HO exhausts

H&M headers are the ONLY way to go unless you have custom made pipes
as they still make the PH3 type
Duel 2 1/2" for the factory look or 3" single for more GO
Nice note & lots of GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
