    Default Mustang vs Cougar/T bird fox exhaust.

    Does anyone know if aftermarket exhaust from a fox Mustang will fit a fox Cougar? I'd like to replace my over the axel pipes. I have OEM replacements on there now but they are 2.25". The rest of my system is 2.5 stainless. I know the tail pipes are shorter on the Mustang, but I already have the proper length and size on there now so that is not an issue. Shorties to that point are a Pypes stainless system for a fox Mustang.

    I have Mustang tail pipes on my car. They have to be lengthened to reach the rear bumper. Too short. I'm getting new tail pipes this year. I believe Stinger has them for our cars in the proper length.

    Vinnie, just to clarify, you have Mustang pipes from the muffler back and they fit with the exception of the tailpipe length?

    I dunno if still available but the 2" Hooker system I bought with H-pipe, extension & tail pipes fit with little fuss... I had to fab a couple hangers, tail pipes with the provided turndowns, extend almost to rear bumper... Note mufflers were not included, intermediate pipes had to be shortened as Hooker stated system was designed to use about any muffler you'd choose...

    In other words nothing was too short...

    I used Dynomax 2.5" Fox Mustang tail pipes on my car. I had to add about 8" of pipe to get them to reach the rear bumper. The pipes fit fine from the mufflers, over the axle, and around the gas tank. Went in like stock.

    I used to use take-off Mustang tailpipes on my cars when I was at Kenny Brown. I think on our 30th Anny we had way back when, I used a whole DS 98 Cobra muffler/tailpipe assembly. Just fiddled with the intermediate pipe to get it to mate up and put an extension between the stainless tip and the over-axle section.

    On other cars, I just buy Mustang tailpipes and add the length in the rear, as needed.
