Hello all

Tried some searches here and found some old threads talking about the possibility of using 05-14 Mustang mufflers on our cars, but didn't see a definitive answer. The 92 I recently acquired still has the factory exhaust, and we noticed that the seams are starting to split on the outside casing of the mufflers. I can get a pair of good condition takeoff 2006 mufflers from a friend in the local Mustang club. Has anyone successfully put these on a Gen 1 or Gen 2 without too much fabrication involved?

thanks,
Ed

Dude you can use whatever mufflers you want man, i prefer no mufflers but whatever you wanna use.
Autozone usually has pipe derverters make a 2 inch into a 4 inch id muffler from a duramax. Might not sound too terrible...


Lol

My oem 1990 sho mufflers are currently on a 1988 oldsmobile 98 with a 3800 series 2 supercharged in it.
No forum has confirmed its fitment yet, maybe one day...

The Mustang mufflers are somewhat bigger in physical size, so there is a bit of work involved in locating and supporting them, but like yaycandy said, you can do almost anything with enough time and money.

OK thanks for that. I used to own an S197 but couldn't remember how the dimensions of those mufflers compared to the SHO. Sounds like I should just get some universal aftermarket ones in the closest correct size and go from there. On the 95 MTX I had about 10 years back, we put on a Magnaflow Y-pipe and the old Walker Dynomax cat-back system ... I liked the sound of that combo.

zoomlater, I did see that thread. The S197 mufflers referenced were on a T-Bird SC, I've known people who've done that. (I used to own a 95 SC 5-speed). The SHO mentioned in that thread had 04 Cobra mufflers apparently, which is the previous gen car to S197 and had different mufflers and mounting than the later cars.


thanks,
Ed
