Foxbody Mustang Dual Exhaust Conversion Kit
Increase exhaust flow for more horsepower and torque with this 1979-1985 Mustang 5.0 dual exhaust conversion kit! This kit contains an SVE off-road x-pipe, BBK shorty headers, exhaust hangers, tail pipe hangers, brackets, mid-pipe hanger, and all of the needed hardware to get it installed.
SVE Off-Road X-Pipe
This SVE direct replacement x-pipe features 2.5” diameter aluminized tubing for maximum flow and horsepower. This SVE x-pipe is a modular 3-piece design for an easy bolt-on installation. Featuring original O2 sensor locations as well as die-stamped flanges which ensures a perfect fit. It also comes with the air tube provision pre-installed! This SVE x-pipe offers the classic raspy sound that the x-crossover is known for.
BBK Shorty Headers
Included in this conversion kit is a set of 1 5/8" shorty headers from BBK that will help your 1979-1985 5.0L Mustang produce an extra 8 to 15 horsepower. Constructed from high quality mandrel-bent steel tubing with 3/8" thick, die-stamped flanges. These Mustang unequal length shorty headers have a bright chrome finish that will look great in your engine bay. These Mustang shorty headers come complete with header bolts, studs, and a fresh pair of gaskets. No welding or cutting, these headers are a direct bolt on to your 5.0L!
Exhaust Hanger Kit
The vital piece to make this conversion work is the exhaust hanger kit. Featuring (2) muffler hangers & brackets, (2) tail pipe hangers, (2) tailpipe brackets, and a mid-pipe hanger, you can replace all of your damaged, rusted, or missing components quickly and easily. This mid-pipe hanger is the bracket that fastens between the transmission tail shaft and the transmission mount to give the mid-pipe something to attach to. This hanger originally came on all 1986-93 5.0L Mustangs with manual transmissions and is a must when converting to dual exhaust.
Ford Racing Adjustable Transmission Crossmember
This Ford Racing (FRPP) M-5059-A adjustable transmission crossmember is a "double hump" design that simplifies installation of dual exhaust conversions on 1982-1985 Mustangs. The outer tubes are not welded to the center support, and thus can be adjusted to fit most engine/transmission combinations and is suitable for Tremec TKO swaps. It fits all fox vehicles with a 4.5" space between the crossmember mounting brackets, like 1982-1993 Mustang. 1979-1981 Mustangs with a 2.75" mounting space will need to relocate their brackets.

Just finished the install and the road test was unbelievable. My 1984 Mercury Capri with its original 302 V8 engine just got a new Holley 4160 carb, this conversion kit, and the Flowmaster American Thunder cat back system. The performance gains and the sound were just out of this world. I don't think the car had this kind of throttle response when I drove it off the showroom floor 30+ years ago. The only negative is the driver side header is not clearing the steering shaft. I will be trying the easiest suggestion which is loosening the shaft anchor bolts and trying to move the shaft away from the header.
