one word. clamps!

ORIGINAL: TNT1968

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!

For Puleo76:

That's the only pic I have right now. Installation is not bad. The hardest part seemed to be getting all of those like 11 pins out for the hood insulation.. Roush sends you a paper template that you cut outand tape to the hood.It locates off the windshield washer nozzles. You drll something like seven holes and 3M tape goes down the sides and back. Maaco painted mine for $75.00.

Hey, this thread has been brought back from the dead!! The brackets may have gone up in price since it's been about 9 months. Some people have just had the muffler shop provide hangars, it's a lot cheaper but it depends on the muffler shop to get the alignment right.

I've thought about the Roush hood scoop for mine too, I like it! I didn't realize it had 7 fasteners, I thought it just had two and some tape. Well, I guess it won't go flying off the car!

Default RE: V6 dual GT mufflers how-to w/ pics

I have the Magnaflow Dual Exhaust part # 16650 on order. A friend works at the local Midas shop and is going to install it. I'm just worried about cutting the bumper. I'm afraid I may not get it right; and he seemed kind of shaky about doing it. The how to is great but doesn't really let me know how hard it actually is to get it right (may just be me). Has anyone screwed it up? How do you make sure you have the paper in the exact same spot when you flip it over to the driver's side? Here was my plan:

1. tape on paper with blue painter's tape all the way from mid bumper to the wheel well
2. put marks where the license plate cut-out ends
3. outline the exhaust outlet cutout
4. measure distance with sewing tape measure from wheel well to first side of outlet
5. flip over paper lining up the mark and measuring the outlet to match step 4
6. mark outlet area to be cut with white grease pencil
7. hang mufflers to make sure they are under the outlet to be cut out
7. cut with dremel
8. file / sand down outlet
9. align and tighten up exhaust

Does this sound correct?

I received my brackets and hardware today from Kevin at Clevenger Ford so the swap goes this weekend! He was nice enough to send a cool 2005 Mustang GT poster and a notepad with the Clevenger logo and somer other catalogs and cool pics and stuff for free with my order. Very cool!

TNT, great to hear! Good luck on the install, I'm sure you'll love them Kevin is a great guy, apparently he always throws some extra goodies in with orders!

Gregbe, WOW that is a really fantastic photo gallery of the installation!! That's an excellent reference. The chrome tips look great, are those the Ford tips?
