Mustang Side Exhaust Kits 1964-2020
Side Exhaust Kits
Even if you have never seen director Jerry Bruckheimer and Nicholas Cage’s version of Gone In Sixty Seconds, it is likely that you at least know what your fellow muscle car fans are talking about when they bring up the name “Eleanor.” Originally featured in the 1974 film Eleanor was reimaged to be even meaner than ever for the 2000 remake. The 1967 GT500 has achieved legendary status throughout the Mustang community, and many Ford fans set out to build their own versions of Eleanor.
Everyone’s favorite custom Fastback is a true physical specimen and its performance numbers don’t lie. One major component that sets this vehicle apart from other famous movie Mustangs is that it features a side exhaust system. When constructing their own versions of Eleanor, the biggest dilemma in which Mustang enthusiasts face is to how to customize their exhausts to match the original. The easiest way to make wholesale changes is to invest in a new Mustang side exhaust kit.
As the name implies, Ford Mustang side exhaust kits contain everything that you need to relocate your rear exhaust system to the side of your vehicle, including side skirts and of course, the correct exhaust piping among other components. The design of a side exhaust system reroutes the exhaust system to exit out the side of the GT500 right in front of the rear wheels.
All sets are different, but all Mustang side exhaust kits contain rear valance covers, which conceal the exhaust openings in the stock rear bumper. Aside from shiny new chrome exhaust tips, the exhaust system is not commonly discussed in terms of how to improve your pony car’s exterior image. By shifting everything from the rear to the side, via a side exhaust kit, you will create a race-like appearance that will wow the masses as soon as you roll into town or to your next race!
Speaking of racing, while curb appeal is the primary reason to invest in a Mustang side exhaust kit, the new setup can lead to modest gains in both horsepower and torque. Certain side exhaust mufflers allow for a straight flow path rich can result in an increase of 8-10 horsepower. It may not sound like a huge improvement on paper, but the modest boost in power can make all the difference in the world, and the new exterior benefits cannot be beaten.
Whether you are active on the race circuit or if you simply wish to provide your pony with even more attitude, you cannot go wrong with a new Ford Mustang side exhaust kit!

Because the system from the factory is rather restrictive, the exhaust is one of the most common areas in which Mustang fans cannot wait to upgrade. Between headers and performance-oriented mufflers, there is a lot that you can do to generate greater airflow, but no upgrade can be easily admired quite like a new side exhaust system can. A new side exhaust can create a race-like appearance breathe new life into a run-of-the-mill muscle car.
