Need Replacement Tailpipe - 84 tbird, 3.8

Somewhat surprised that I cannot find this pipe for sale (although the 87-88 comes up).  Is the walker 45852 that fits the 87-88 really different than the the 84?  If not, whats the easiest way to get a new tailpipe on?

Thanks alot

An 87 up tailpipe will work fine. I've used the same tail pipe on both 86-87 cars and v-6 to v-8.

You may have to get creative with exhaust hangers, but it should bolt in.

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.
