    Hi everyone my wife bought me a 2000 Mustang convertible (V6) we have done a lot to get it running, fuel pump, brakes, door and making temporary repairs to the top. I found a 5.4 out of a 1997 Expedition to go into my car but I am still looking for more parts. Here are a few pictures of the before and after.

    no problem, these are the style you would need and you can pick them up off ebay for like 50 60 bucks a muffler. depending on the brand and size. the magnaflow ones in the link are 2.5 in and out which is what our cars have stock unless you plan to go 3 inch piping. again this is just my idea and opinions obviously youll do whatever you want to hahah.

    Heck ya why not? You gave me some great ideas. I might keep the V6 but much rather have the 5.4.
