Those are pricey, and I am 95% sure they do not fit. MN12's do not share many parts with stangs. My recommendations for your exhaust system are :

1. Exhaust manifolds from a 96/97 MN12
2. Custom exhaust piping (no larger than 2 1/2 inches)
3. Porting exhaust side of cylinder heads/ polish intake side.

That should give your 3.8 some more GO! Be sure to mod brakes and suspension accordingly, so you do not get out of control

Everyday of my life is a constant fight, between wrong and right.

When there is no grass on the field, go around back and play in the mud.

Hey Roy.....what the **** are you talking about? Lol....he asked if a v8 tbird system would fit a v6 tbird....there was no mention of a stang...well then the answer is yes, if they are from the same years in order to fit around the corresponding fuel tank.

My error. I have been up way too long I'll second stupid fly's post. Fitting around the fuel tank is probably going to be the biggest issue. Might as well get custom piping done.

He's got a 92 LX which means no need to get a newer gas tank since he has the better of the two.

how many gauges do you have in your cluster. Do you have a tachometer or volt meter? Sounds like you have a base bird.

I can sell a new style gas tank for anyone who needs one.

You can get any 89-95 gauge cluster from an LX and hook it up. Melon will have to clarify as to the ease of it. But it's possible and you can find one pretty easily in a junk yard. Doesn't have to be from a sport.

I'd look for a catback system from a 92-93 v8 LX. I don't know if the 95-97's would fit, they might. But just to be safe get one for a 92-93. They're not hard to come by.
