Top speed!!

I posted this else where and did not get a good response. I was wondering what is the top speed on a 88 TC? And while I am here, when they added dual exhaust in 88 how was it set up? Any one have a diagram of it?

Both '87 and '88 5speed TC's got the duals(automatics had single), and were added to the 5.0 Birds in '88. The TC system has a "Y" pipe into two mufflers, The 5.0 used a "Y" into single, back to another "Y" to dual mufflers.

I believe Motor Trend est the top speed at 143 mph in their car of the year tests in '87.

It wasn't hit 143mph. 1 mph slower than the Mustang.
