no, nothing is going to bolt right up. The true dual system from MES fits nicely but its up to you to figure out how to connect it to the rest of the exhaust. They used to make downpipes but they have been discontinued.

Does that Magnaflow kit include the y pipe or is it just the back half?
I bought the magnflow kit for the front and a flowmaster cat back system for the back. It's complete bolt in. I did it in my condo parking lot with a jack and hand tools. Big difference over stock and sounds great
When you say custom work to the mandrel kit; how in depth can you explain the custom fitting? I just ordered the mandrel pipes for my '94, and I bet a turttle with down syndrome could weld better than me.
From what I read, the back half of the mandrel kit is more or less a bolt-on installation - you just have to weld on some mufflers.
The front half however, requires twisting the passenger side cat and welding on a new 02 sensor bung. I guess you won't have this problem if you get the catless kit but that still requires a section of pipe welded on where the cats would go.
I'm having this same issue on my car, 93 with the 5.0.... What I thought was a resonator is actually a 3rd cat (the last 93 Tbird I had had the resonator, so when I glanced under the car before and saw a box that's what I figured it was) so I want to at least take that 3rd cat out of the exhaust. Can I get a y-pipe to fit that diagonal angle to just straight pipe that section?
