Hi all,

Just picked up a 2002 Mustang Cobra. I just want to ask about the exhaust on these things.

Say I was to get a mate based in the US to purchase and ship a Borla Stinger catback and an MRT H-pipe (designed for US Mustang Cobras).. will this be a direct fit for the local exhaust specialist? Or did the factory RHD conversion change things enough that it won't be? My reason for asking is that I read somewhere (possibly a CarsGuide review) that the engine and/or transmission had to be shifted a little.

It should be a direct fit.
Mine has a standard exhaust at the moment and it is a little quiet for me also.

When they shifted the motor sideways they had to make up new extractors but they still used the down pipes that has 2 cats on each pipe.
