I lost my 2008 Bullitt with 9500 miles in the (Northern California) Tubbs Fire in 2017. The only components I was able to salvage off the car is the exhaust system. The H-pipe and both cat converters are fine as are both mufflers along with one of the exhaust pipes. The other exhaust pipe has a couple of dents in it. I'm trying to determine what would be a fair asking price for this set up and the best place to advertise. I would appreciate any suggestions from the club. Thanks!

Tried selling CAT-back exhaust from my truck a few years back...no-one wanted to give more than $50. If you find the right person who has a need, you're lucky to get $100 (IMO) + reclaiming space in garage.

I would be interested in the 2 factory mufflers if they are in great shape with tips. Mine were replaced with something else before I got the car.

dguffin, structurally I don't think there is anything wrong with either muffler. You can see by the attached photos that the Galvalume (or whatever finish Ford calls it) has been compromised in some places on the outside of the mufflers, however nothing that couldn't be fixed with galvanized based spray paint or muffler spray paint. As for the tips, they also appear undamaged but discolored from the heat of the fire. I have not tried polishing them out but have heard that a vinegar and baking soda paste works well in restoring heat discolored stainless steel. I'd love to find a good home for them, preferably on another 08-09 Bullitt as it should be. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks!

The cat converters alone are worth a fortune, though...
B3NN3TT, Agreed though I'd hate to just scrap them out with so few miles on them. On these, am I correct in assuming that they are the same H-pipe and cat converter set up as found on the standard GT Mustangs? Any idea on what would be a fair price for this? 25%-30% of retail? Appreciate the feedback. Thanks!

They really wouldn't be worth anything, if the tips can't be cleaned and corrected. Do you have a price in mind as is? Are you willing to clean tips to see if they are even salvageable to sell?

I don't have a specific price in mind at the moment. I agree with you on the tips unless someone wanted to paint them flat black (although I prefer the bare S/S look as well). I'll see what I can do about cleaning the tips and let you know.

The 08/09 Bullitt H-pipe is UNIQUE to the Bullitt, specifically tuned by Ford to sound similar to the movie hero Mustang Bullitt. The Bullitt H-pipe is valuable, hard to find.

The cats are the same as the standard GT, value as scrap catalytic converters.
