Question Noob exhaust question.

I was under my 97 Thunderbird 4.6 , working other issues, and I noticed the exhaust is "stamped" above the rear axle. Is this a factory clearance thing, or is it smashed? Also, what is a cheap and easy way to lose the 3rd cat? Im in GA, emissions inspection exempt!

It's smashed in a couple places if IIRC. I think factory clearance issues idk.

Forget the 3rd cat delete you should get a full 2.5" exhaust and delete them all.

Thanks for the help. I would love to do a complete exhaust, but I'm cheap. I've been looking at the magnaflow y pipe, not a bad price but I really dont have the facilities to do it right. Maybe down the road a ways...

There's a dyno max cat back that is supposed to have decent gains. Search it on the forums you'll find a couple threads on it. Probably more expensive than the y pipe. But either one will give some power.

If you have plans to do the entire exhaust later then I would save your money and do it all at once.

Go see a muffler shop in a quiet area; he may do an exhaust cheap.
