My first thought here.. you want to use an exhaust designed for a Mustang on a Thunderbird? It probably wouldn't work since the pipe route would be different between the two cars, not to mention the Thunderbird is longer.

I would buy a muffler and/or resonator of your choice and have a shop fab one up for you.

That is amazingly expensive for something that won't even fit our cars. For the same price or less I'm 100% sure an exhaust shop could fab up something similar or better. If you're looking for a custom side exit look into Dr. Gas side exit boom tubes (you'll need 2) and some sort of round muffler like slp loud mouth 2's or spin techs (you'll need 2 round mufflers also) combine that with an x-pipe and some custom bends from a local muffler shop and you'd have something aggressive, affordable, and unique.

Here's a part list for you:

Side exits:
Dr. Gas boom tube (2)
or oval/slash oval tips by another manufacturer if you want it less aggressive

Mufflers
Slp lm2 "loud mouth 2's" (2)
or
Magnaflow round body mufflers (2)
or
Spin tech mufflers (2)

X-pipe:
Magnaflow tru-x x-pipe (1)
or
Flowmonster (eBay) x-pipe (1)

New cats
Magnaflow/catco high flow (2)
or
Generic high flows (2)

That list gives you a few options, if you want a clean-ish install then you'll also need a set of supercoupe factory side skirts or xenon side skirts (whatever your preference) and notch them to clear your tips or boom tubes for the side exit exhaust. Otherwise the tips or tubes will sort of just be hanging there (not as pretty IMO).

As far as exhaust pipe size I'd go with 2 1/4" or 2 1/2" dual pipe (bigger isn't always better) especially in your case, the car is naturally aspirated you don't need a massive sized exhaust pipe, the 2 1/4" pipe would probably be easier to work with in the tight areas. For reference I'm running 2 1/4" pipe on my modified 4v dohc 4.6 and I have no issues with restrictions yet.

Give me a min. and I'll upgrade my post with a pic of a similar setup by another member here for visual reference.

Edit: here's the link to slidebird91's side exit install.

If you really want to get loud mufflers, get Flowmaster Super 10 Series Stainless Steel Mufflers. Pretty much just straight pipes since there 1 chamber. Sound throaty at idle. Aggressively loud, and might get you pulled over, if thats what your looking for.

Aren't flowmaster 10's wide and awkwardly shaped though? I suggested round mufflers to fit under the middle of the car since he wants side exit.

So first you want CobraR heads, then you want Roush exhaust? Your car is not a mustang. Spend some time reading the forums and finding out what other people have done to their birds. The reason "everyone drives a mustang" is because with a mustang you can just flip through a magazine and buy one of everything and bolt it all together, and have a reasonably fast car. If you want to mod your bird, quit looking at mustang parts and spend some time reading through the forums and see what other people have done to their cars.

Agreed. To this I'll add that there are some Mustang parts that do work on Thunderbirds. Namely the Cobra Bilsteins and the Cobra calipers.

For exhaust look at the mandrel exhaust system. I think I've pointed you to this thread in the past. There are a number of us on this site who use this system for a reason.

http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.php?t=118883

This system comes with the Magnaflow Tru-X x-pipe that Chris Murder mentioned in his post.

Do you seriously have the money to buy these upgrades or are you just looking and dreaming? Not that there's anything wrong with that; I'd venture to say it's the latter.

Edit: N/M I see the answer to that question in your signature.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)

Yeah there a bit awkwardly shaped but this kid doesn't know what he want's, he changes his mind every week. It would be best if he just read what works and go from there. I mean like, to each their own, but side exhausts are gross. (unless of course you have a mullet) Slidebird's exhaust is the only one ive ever seen thats the attractive, because it flows with the skirts. Not some downturns or chrome tips that stick out past the body. But again, to each their own.

Meh I think the 2000 Cobra R side exits looked pretty damn good with no skirts. It's the straight tip rusting mild steel 5" pipes that deserve the coveted mullet aficionado award.

Come on give the gaudy ground effects a chance! I don't care for the radio delete either. Even if its your track car, a little radio is nice.
