I'm looking for the specifics here...
I assume exhaust in one side, out the opposite side (no center pipe) with 2.25" pipes. But do the dimensions of the pipe matter, or can the welder or exhaust shop make adjustments easily for length (I keep finding different sizes for different mufflers)?
I might consider a chambered steel muffler to go with my highflow "H", maybe like MAC Flow Path, Dynaflow or something like Spintech? Or I may keep it stock...

Here are my thoughts. I don't think there would be any power gain with other mufflers,as I don't think there is much restriction in the Bullitt mufflers,judging from the sound with O/R pipes. I f you have some others added,I would keep the same 2 1/4 inlet/outlet for a neat swap if keeping the stock tailpipes,they don't leave much pipe length to work with on the outlet side. I wonder what it would sound like without mufflers? The cats seem to do a lot of it. Now if you are adding a blower,that would change everything!

Interesting thoughts 408, and much appreciated. I'm not looking for any more performance, just more of that beautiful SOUND. Maybe I will try it w/out mufflers for a bit just to see...
I CAN tell you that without anything it sounds AWESOME (I had to relocate the car up the driveway halfway through the "H" swap and did it with open pipes!)

I'll sell them to you gladly if I do the swap. Otherwise maybe you should check into the new catback from Ford Racing for 01 GT's made by Alvin (the co. that made our mufflers). It's 2.5" all the way and steel. I may also consider this catback as an alternative to stock. I'll bet it has a similar sound only louder and with better flow.

Dennis, the stock is 2 1/4 but a muffler shop can weld in an adapter if you buy mufflers with inlets/outlets that are 2 1/2. Length does matter either. A muffler shop can fabricate new flow tubes in 10 minutes if need be. The inlets/outlets are offset so I would recommend matching that up for your replacement mufflers.
