          Sounds great on my 94 mustang 5.0. Added the thunder I was looking for at half the cost of Flowmaster and the quality is the same. Made of thick aluminized steel. Each weighing approx. 15 lbs. I would recommend welded over crimped steel any day. Smooth contours on inlet and outlet. Great buy.

                If you have 2 1/4" pipe and an offset inlet and offset outlet then yes it will fit. Note that you also need at least 19 inches of length clearance for it to work .
