Exhaust routing on a 79?
« on: October 15, 2018, 04:21:27 AM »
Does it go straight back under the passenger side or does it cross over?  :-[

The stock system with the 2.3 was all on the right side , sedan or wagon , the V6 had a Y pipe that moved over to the right in the rear , but for a few years they did have a duel system for the V6 but ended up on the right to a duel inlet muffler , see mustang two with same set up , done one wagon with duels on both sides but you have to cut out the spare tire tub and install a plate and installed a boat tank in the middle ,

76 Pinto sedan V6 , 79 pinto cruiser wagon V6 soon to be diesel or 4.0

Thanks.
It figures, my brand new exhaust for the 89 Mustang donor crosses to the left just past the transmission.
But at least I can use the down pipe and cat converter, I hope. Maybe even the muffler and tail pipe if I am lucky.The rest is easy.
