==I finally decided and ordered a kit from chronicbump on ebay today. For anyone that's interested, it is item #7976770140==
I've seen a few posts about the Magnaflow system, those that have it seem to be quite happy with it!
==Those bracket's are expensive little suckers!!!!==
They are, but the muffler hangs in exactly the same place as on the GT if you use them. One person skipped the brackets and had his muffler shop fabricate hangars, but they had trouble getting the muffler to hang in exactly the right spot (it was too low and too far towards the front of the car). Another person removed the front bracket off the right muffler and used it as a rear brackets on the left (it's the same bracket). Then he had a shop fabricate hangars for the front of both mufflers. That way he was able to get the mufflers to hang right without having to buy the left side brackets. Not a bad idea if you want to save 70 bucks! Who's sunroof do you have on yours? It looks nice!
==Treeeessss your such a pimp!!!==
LOL! Well I have always like those hats
==That looks great!!! I'm jealous, that is my next mod, once I find the time and money. Moreso, the time. ==
Thanks! It wasn't too bad time-wise, I spent about an hour yesterday morning doing the prepwork and then dropped it off. It took the shop about 2 hours to do the pipe, we just went and had lunch and ran some errands while they did that.
==Yes...you are the man. Thanks for posting the pic and the how-to-do! ==
You're quite welcome, hope it helps! All the info was in these forums already, but it's spread out all over the place. I'm going to try to take some pics of the pipe tie-in, it would have been good to catch it on the lift but it was down by the time I got there.
Steve, thanks again! I like that sunroof a lot, don't see many Mustangs with them. I was really surprised it wasn't offered as an option, but then again I don't remember the last time they put one on a 'stang. Great job on the GT front end too! Very nice looking.
i am extremely happy the way my car performs with the true duals. i spent a lot of time on two lane roads in Tennessee saturday and in third gear passing it really hauls. first time i passed i lookd down and was doing 80 with no strain. have K&N too that helps even more. it runs as good in the upper RPMs as my 94GT did.

I'm the one that did this, and it looks and sounds great with the right placement of the mufflers.
I just put my passenger GT muffler on and I'm waiting for my brackets for the driver's side from Clevenger Ford. They were actually $39.00 and some change apiece and not $35.00, but that still better than the $58.00+ apiece that the local Ford dealer wanted. I ordered bolts as well. BTW not much difference inside the car with the single GT muffler but it is a little rowdier outside the car. When I get the brackets I will get the driver's side relief cut and mount the muffler. I will then take the muffler off and have the muffler shop set me up with a true dual system with H-pipe.They said that it would be about $100.00 for the work. The H-pipe should improve torque.
Thanks for the inspirational thread Tres!
