Notice where they ran their tail pipes - I'm seriously contemplating doing the same, but I don't think I'd let the tips stick out so far.

Hell, for that matter, what's saying someone couldn't run the pipes straight out the back like they do on 5.0 Fox LXs...?? :shrug:

The gas tank.

2 things about that though. I mean the tail pipes running straight out the back from under the quarter panel like on the Fox 5.0s, and I have a Fox tank already. So the pipes would have to run outside the leaf spring and exit below the bumper outside of the shackles. I think it might look a little funny though, but then again what do I know? I do know that the pipes would need to be polished, that much is certain.

I associate that exhaust routing with late '70s GM A bodies. I miss the days of seeing those all over the place.

Yep, just like the Fox cars.

And I'm definitely NOT the person you want to Photoshop anything! :rlaugh:

Just because I was curious:


Polished 2-1/2" pipe from Speedway.... :chinNow if someone actually has some Photoshop skills, I'd really like to see what that would look like. I mean if I take my car to a shop and have them run tail pipes over the axle, having a couple options would be cool. Especially if one of those options is to leave the noise behind you while driving. I still think it would look kinda weird, but that's probably because I've never seen a II with polished pipes running like that. I've only seen polished side pipes on them, and I really don't care for side pipes - at all. :puke:

Back in high school I had a coupe that I ran my exhaust similar to yours @74stang2togo - only difference is I used glass packs. To me, it made it sound like a truck. Granted, they were glass packs and I have chambered mufflers now, it's apples and oranges, but it just left a bad taste in my mouth. :shrug:

I want his tailpipes, but I'm not brave enough to run a pipe that big under my gas tank.

That and it's just one more thing in the way should someone require access to the tank. It's probably fine 99.9% of the time, it just reminds me of the Northstar starter placement....

There's nothing wrong with the starter location on a Northstar, Toyota and BMW also hide them under intakes. It's the quality of the starter that is the problem.

Shotgun duels,
Not a traditional approach for a mustang but gets along with the tank.
Like the tucked bumper and the blue on this one. Very clean.

I'm talking about having one more thing in the way to service the part, it's just that Northstar engines have a reputation for it BECAUSE of the :poo:-ty starters. Like I said, running the exhaust pipes under the tank probably wouldn't be a big deal until you had to do something that required dropping the tank, which doesn't happen very often - if at all - once everything is in place. It might be a different story if you were to install an electric pump in the tank, but that's a whole other ball of wax for most IIs. My personal opinion of it is more on the aesthetic side, it would just look weird to have them under the tank. Kinda the same feeling if the tail pipes ran under the quarter panels and out the rear, it would probably look weird. But in that case I think it's most likely because I've never seen one like that so I have no real point of reference to judge from.

I'm just yankin yer chain, under the intake really is a silly place to put a starter, but BMW and Toyota don't get the flack for it GM did because Denso starters last 150,000 miles or more in most cases, even living in the heat that gets trapped under the intake manifold (my 4Runner being an example, 140k miles, original starter).

If GM had used a Denso starter on the Northstar, nobody would have even known it was there until the head bolts pulled out of the block as the inevitably do. :rlaugh:

I love it, but not $10k love it. I love that it's falsely advertised as a King Cobra when it's clearly a "billboard" Cobra II, and has the Stallion/Ralleye steering wheel... not to mention the badly installed gauges and switch panel.
