Hey guys i was trolling around on ebay and came across this little item.

I was wondering if it was at all worth a buy for what you get...

But most importantly would it fit to a Ford 98 EL??

Thanks :)

looks like it should
priced ok, different brands cost me just under 900 installed
very easy to install,getting the old one off is a little more frustrating
hack saw and mallet and a friend will come in handy.
buying all at once is denfenitley the go
saves any welding ..
still i would ask if the cat has been customised to fit the kit and thus car or if off the shelf
does it need further fabrication

It says it degreases fuel consumption, why wouldnt you buy it :lol:
It looks ok to me and is very conveneint to get the whole shebang at once, its mandrel bent how bad can it be.
I would put this on my car if i didnt already have a zorst.

Upgrading an exhaust system can actually better your fuel efficiency...it's just due to the power being there, people tend to have a heavy foot screwing up their average fuel consumption.

If you decide to purchase it, you can be the test mule for FM members ;)

Will be a fine exhaust especially for the price and considering your not wanting to be a dyno hero.
