    Default Exhaust Upgrades

    Well, I am in the middle of "Mike-ifying" my 1986 convertible (I ripped out the electronic "brain" and am converting to a carb induction system).

    Looking down the road, i would like to upgrade the exhaust to a dual exhaust system. With that, i was looking for headers. There are none available for 1986 3.8's (surprise) but there are headers available for 1994-1996 3.8's.

    So here is the question.......Will those headers intended for a 1994 3.8 Mustang fit a 1986 3.8 Mustang.

    The SN95 headers will bolt up to your engine and fit the chassis. This guy installed them and used a MAC V8 x-pipe with some minor modifications.

    Excellent! How did I miss his write up? He did some amazing work. I got a new guy to emulate besides Mike (or Walking Tall)!!

    Rick and 1983 GL V6 MUSTANG are long time Blue Bloods. They shared the 4bbl intake. Sorry I never linked it.

    I was looking through his thread. Did he machine that 4 bbl intake himself?

    Rick made his 4bbl intake in 2012 and eventually sold it to 1983 GL V6 Mustang in early 2014. Stock electron beam aluminum with a bridge ported plenum and a bolt on stainless plate for a an Edlebrock 500 4bbl
