Dang. Wish they had the front part for a 1991 XR7 - kit looks good, looks good installed, and I bet it runs great too!

They've got dualies from the Xpipe/cats back, but I also need the stuff up to the motor.

/me wonders idly how hard it would be to convert a 4.6L front set to fit the 5.0L in Sweetie's car

Ugh, I've got to stop looking at these types of things. All it does is make me want to spend more money I don't have.

Seriously though, looks good.

Nice pics; you may want to look into swapping out the tranny pan/filter for the '96+ version....then as long as you're in there: J Mod!

Exhaust looks good btw.

Will that set up fit a 95 Cougar? since their site mentions they only sell the X pipe for the Thunderbird...being the same MN12 platform..it should be a perfect fit.

Gimmie A Few To Post Some Rear Shots

YEs the kit should fit the cougar,but i had to trim a about 1/4 inch off of the flare were the kit bolts to the exhaust manifold,and cut the hangers off of the cat pipes,and about 2-3 inches off of the center x section once that was done the kit was good.i was expecting to do a lil trimming anyway so that want no big suprise.but for the money it is a good kit.i got a short vid let me figure out how to post and ill do it,

doing what i gotta do

thanks; didn't know about these guys. Added to my bookmarks so I can order soon for sure . And +2 on the midsection; I'd rather have a DIDO muffler or two round mufflers in place there so I can use tails in the back.

i emailed the guys from mandrelexhaustsystems.com and they told me they would sell me the downpipes without the x-pipe for those of you who want to run a DI/DO. he quoted me $80 for the kit without cats.

if ur gunna run DI/DO midmount, request no x-pipe and save some money

kpthefatty, awesome, my friend. Thank you for letting us know. More than likely I will get it with the cats. I"m probably going to use my tax return to do my exhaust
