S197 Mustang Exhaust System Buyers’ Guide
Bassani Manufacturing [(866) 782-3283; www.bassani.com] offers systems for V-6 and V-8 applications. Available in aluminized steel and stainless, all systems come with 2½-inch tubes and 4-inch rolled-edge, slash-cut tips. The stainless systems have dual-wall tips, while the V-6 system’s tips are single walled. The V-6 options are a single exhaust that fits the stock rear fascia, a dual-exit system with direct-fit mufflers that connects via an add-on Y-pipe and exits on both sides. This requires modifying the stock fascia, but fits well and looks great. For those who want to replace the stock Y-pipe in their V-6, a dual-exit crossover-pipe system is available with race mufflers. For your GT or GT500, Bassani offers the direct-fit mufflers in stainless or aluminized steel or the race performance versions in stainless or aluminized as well.
