Question Can this be done

I was wondering if that a Mercury Marauders exhuast set up can done on a 97 Cougar 4.6L?

I just love how the Marauders exhaust sounds. it's not too loud, it's just right!

Are you talking about the stock exhaust on a Marauder?

You also have to consider the Marauder is a DOHC so if you copy the exhaust, it may not sound exactly the same since your SOHC.

If you really want the sound, take a Marauder exhaust and use the mufflers but have a shop bend up new pipe and see what it's like. And if that doesn't work, swap to a DOHC 4.6.

Well technically Panthers are just black Cougars but unfortunately for the OP that doesn't help him, when it comes to cars they don't have much in common chassis wise.

Thanks for the answers guys, But I guess i'll have to "make do" ..

Lou's Custom Exhaust wants me drive up to their Manchester NH location for a set up consulation, (is it FREE?) The guy wants to put my car in the air and make 4 different setups to see what I like...

BTW... I live close to Waltham Ma, and there is a Lou's Custom shop there and they quoted me $750 installed with SS mufflers ... (a little $teep for me!)


what do you think?

Jason,

Check these guys out. Smitty used them for his Mark VIII and did a good job at a good price.

Check out his thread.

750 is a little steep... the most I've spent is 400 dollars for my recent exhaust. It was 2.5 inch duals with H pipe and I already had the mufflers. So think 500 out the door. When I did the cougar it was 2.25 inch dual and I supplied the mufflers. It only cost me 200 cash out the door.
