Stock Exhaust Compatibility 95/96

Can you swap the stock exhaust system from a '95 4.6 Cougar to a 96 4.6 Thunderbird? I know the 96 manifolds are different, but will the 95 Cougars exhaust bolt up? How about O2 sensors?

Thanks in advance to the experts!

The manifolds are the same 94-97. The exhaust system is identical except that the 96-97 have a straight pipe in place of the resonator behind the third cat.

Manifolds are the same, sensors are the same, it will bolt up. The 95 exhaust has a resonator after the 3rd cat though.

Well thank you both! Are there any issues with running the 95 resonator exhaust on a 96?

No, but it'll free up a little flow if you ditch it.
