I have 3 98 mustangs a gt, gt vert, and v6. I have to put a new tranny in the coupe gt, been working at it slowly, but it's parked at a friend's house, today I realized the section of the exhaust with the catylitic convertors are gone, so are most of the tranny pan bolts and the hood prop. And it just so happens that half the tranny mount and o2 sensors and a few other bolts were still attached. I'm not too happy about this. My goal was to get all 3 running but I'm starting to think the v6 may be a parts car. But of course, the only part that is different is that the v6 has a single exhaust pipe and the gt's have dual exhaust. I don't want to have to buy new ones, so if I switch to single from the dual, what is the difference going to be?

What the heck? Stealing the cats is common, but removing the hood prop rod and most of the Pan bolts makes me wonder if someone was on meth or was shopping for parts.
Not sure I understand what you want to do, but you have my sympathies.

The car is not going to run right if you put the single exhaust in place of what should be a dual exhaust. The engine won't be able to "breathe" properly.

If the car is insured, check with your insurance company about the catalytic converter theft.
