Can anyone identify this exhaust system and what year Mustang it's made for?

    Long story short. Someone locally has been selling this exhaust for quite a while. It looks brand new, but didn't look like it was made for an SN95 since the H-pipe and muffler section is one piece. Now the seller is claiming that he 'thinks' it's for an SN95 and I'm interested, but I want to make sure it's what he claims it is first.


    Any ideas?

    I'm pretty sure that's a S197 catback

    I don't think it's for an s197 either... Idk what they're exhausts look like but I know for a fact that their mufflers sit about 2 or so inches from the tips, right behind the bumpers.

    if you get it im sure any decent exhaust shop will be able to make it work anyways. nothing a couple cuts bends and welds cant fix. haha but honestly i dont even see that fitting a s197. looks like truck exhaust. lol

    The 05-09 Maybe even 2010 GTs have a bend and the cats are more rounded.
    Also at the rear of the H, they are clamped.
    Just looking at it I don't even think it would fit a 3v without modification.
    And those cats are far too wide.

    And if those aren't cats, then the H pipe isn't even right.
    So I'd bet my car that's not an s197, H is too long anyway.

    Here's a 3v setup.
    Even the 4.0 is similar.

    So yeah, I'd bet bottom dollar it's not a newer mustang setup.
    But my knowledge dies after 09. Never even looked into 2010+
    But I do know 99% of powertrain and exhaust are interchangeable from 05-10.
    2011 even the exhaust hangers out back changed.

    The 2011 + are very similar. That's just the way they are.
