#45 of 63 07 cobra exhaust
Oct 09, 2007 (7:56 pm)
Hey I'm new here and relatively new to the automotive scene as well, although I've been a mustang fan all my life. I didn't see anything like this posted so here goes...
A friend of our family used to own the 07 GT500 Cobra but recently got rid of it to order a 08 top-of-the-line Corvette (Corvettes have always been HIS dream car). Shortly after he bought the Cobra, though, he replaced the stock Cobra exhaust pipes with an even more upgraded pair. He kept the stock pair, however, and still has them as the buyer didn't want them when he picked the Cobra up from this friend. Since he doesn't plan on using the pipes again, he's offered them to me.
I own a 03 V6 Mustang, and my three questions are as follows:
1) Is it possible to replace the single stock pipe with the 07 cobra pipes given that the engine is completely different and the bodystyle is also not the same?
2) If it is possible, how much work would need to be done to replace the exhaust and about how much would it cost?
3) If it is possible, of much (if any) hp gains could I look for?

1) Posssible? Yes. Practical? NO!
2) A lot! (in both regards)
3) Maybe 15 on the top end.

Why would it not be practical? Because of the amount of work needed? Or because there are more efficient choices in exhaust systems? (Keep in mind that he's offering to give these pipes to me free of charge)
I know that for a proper fit, changing the rear bumper out for one with notches (I don't know the proper term) would be best, but how much would be necessary to retrofit the pipes onto my current engine? Do you know how much these changes would cost on average? Also, would it be best to change my stock headers for better performance ones (equal-length or shorty)?

Impractical because of the amount of work needed. In your car, the muffler is under the middle of the car. In the new Mustangs, the mufflers are in the back. None of the bends are the same. The hangers won't be in the same place, etc. With the amount of hacking that would be done to the system, you'd be left with very little of what you started with, with more aftermarket stuff grafted in. Just go with an aftermarket setup to begin with. It might still be cheaper after all is said and done despite you getting his for free.

Not to mention single vs. dual exhausts and the rear valance cutouts.

I am having the worst problems, but probably is an easy fix. I replaced the sensor on the distributor, because it got broken, and the only way i could get it off was to pull the distributor out, and now, I cant seem to get the timing right to be able to crank the car. I need to know the exact way to place the distributor button and firing order. The car has an MSD ignition, distributor cap and wires. What am I doing wrong?

How long was the SC on the car before having the problem? Was it professionally installed? Has it been tuned?

I've actually fixed the problem. I installed an a/c eliminator that also works as a tensioner. The supercharger was not originaly installed properly,it was not at the same angle as the rest of the pulleys.with the new tensioner it has taken the stress off the factory one. It now builds 18psi of boost with 600 horsepower
