1986 Exhaust

Mustang Exhaust Buyer’s Guide

The renewed interest in third-generation (Fox Body) Mustangs has flooded the market with performance exhausts. While this is great for consumers and enthusiasts alike, it can be overwhelming when it’s time to make a decision. Here are a few things you should consider when shopping for a replacement exhaust system for a 1986 Mustang:

• X-pipe vs. H-pipe: Two main dual-exhaust configurations are available for the 1986 Mustang. X-pipe exhausts streamline output flow, producing more power late in the RPM band and a louder, raspier tone. By contrast, H-pipe configurations produce a more classic muscle car growl, as well as pronounced torque boost lower in the RPM band.
• Cat back vs. axle back: Cat back exhaust kits replace everything from the catalytic converter backwards, while axle-back kits include everything except the mid-pipe. Upgrading more of your exhaust components will lead to more performance gains. If you are happy with your current mid-pipe, however, you can save money by choosing an axle-back design.
• Long-tube vs. shorty headers: Many choose to upgrade their headers at the same they replace their exhaust. While long-tube headers provide more overall horsepower and torque, shorties deliver more power in the low RPM range.
