I have not posted in here yet so I will post up an old vid of mine, I am going to paste over the post info too.
I dont think I ever made this post over here and I was going through my old vids and wanted to share my exhaust vid with you and get some feedback.
This is a 1996 Mustang that I did a splitport conversion to a couple of years ago.
When someone stole my catted midpipe I took the chance to put a BBK O/R X-pipe in.
The X-Pipe was meant for 94/95 GT and Cobra's but was an easy mod to work with the sixxer.
We simply cut the 2.5" cups off and replaced them with 2.25" cups that were slightly angled in more and used the sixxer flanges.
It worked great, everything fit like it was OEM, even the T5 trans mount.
I wanted to know how many other people out there are saving money and modding GT or Cobra midpipes.
We bought a 2004 Mach 1 manual trans midpipe to modify as well, not too sure if it will modify as easily as the 94/95 BBK but we need it to pass smog now that we are back home in California and we didnt want to lose our current muffler setup.
The Mustang has Borla's on it now that are turned down, sounds really nice but has a ton of drone at freeway speeds. I will have to get a video up of that soon.
Here are the specs on the build as it was when I took the video, I am going to hit the key features and not how I adapted it to the 96'.
All portwork was done by me.
* 2000 3.8L complete
* Ported heads, massive D shape exhaust ports blended to the chamber, simple port matching and blending on intake side to factory dual ribbed lower intake gaskets.
*Heavily ported lower intake manifold, no restrictions left.
*Ported upper as far as I could reach.
*96' 3-1 stock tube headers.
*Tuning by VMP tuning via Xcal2
The sound quality if the vid isnt the best but you get a good idea of what it did sound like, I thought it sounded pretty mean but of course without the backpressure it was gutless. :P
The Borla's fixed that problem perfectly, no more bogging. We also have a lot more done to it now.
But its a good exhaust vid for the raw aspect for the sound of combo - porting, shorty stock headers through a BBK O/R X-pipe with no mufflers.
