Exhaust Tips


Recommended Posts

I thinking about puting exhaust tips on my car. I have a 73 vert with a 351 cleveland. Did the factory install them on the verts ? I think the Mach 1 had them from the factory. I looked in the 73 dealer brochere and don't see anything listed. Is there a factory correct tip for a 73 and if there is who sell them.

 

Thanks

Hi JJ,

 

I'm not saying that what i did on my '73 Vert is the be all and end all of what people can do for a rear tip treatment, but i think it dosen't look too bad.

 

To the best of my knowledge, because Ford never made Mach converts, the Mach exhausts were not available for them. (Unless you specialy ordered them for you purchase - is that true???)

 

They are a 3 inch stainless steel tip with an angled backface and double skinned construction, welded back to a custom twin 2 & a half inch system. If you specifically want, i can ID the brand later. They cost around $90.00 each tip Australian.

 

Dig the pic!

Greg, I'm interested in any case in the tips. I like the double wall construction, mine are chrome pieces that loo like they may have come with the flowmaster setup that was on it when I bought it.

Hi Greg,

 

Cheers!

 

Was there anything else you wanted to know about the tips?

 

 

 

 

Hi Jim,

 

 

Thanks mate. Yeah they fit really well in the cutouts. You wouldn't want to or couldn't fit a larger size tip in. And anyway, i think that would look a bit dinky as well.The double skin stainless is a good look i reakon.

Thanks Greg, no nothing but where you got them from/brand.

 

Greg

 

I'll talk to my exhaust shop guy early next week and either PM you or post details that you'd be after.

 

Thanks mate.

Them there look like Magnaflow tips,

I would really like to have Oval tips, It's a ford logo thing, but the round cut out, kinda put an end to that, looking at buying another rear valance and cutting/modding it for the oval tips...

 

something like these,

Or these,

Anything is possible, It just takes time and MONEY....

The oem type tips are available at most mustang supply shops. For some reason they only have one style clamp attached and it can interfere on one side wih the tank. Strange. Also note the Boss 351 came with twin downturns from the factory, which i have on my vert. Not as sporty as the straight back, but not too bad when both are singing.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I don't have cut out in valance so I think I am going to put turn downs on. Greg I did like the way you did your car but I dont want to mess with the valance.

John,

 

I have turn downs on my car, but changed the rear valance to the cutouts. I plan on getting the chrome tips like what Greg has done as it looks great.

 

I subscribe to the my car and I'll do it the way I like rule!

All,

 

One of my biggest disappointments with the reproduction exhaust tips it they do not last long against rust and corrosion. You do get what you pay for! I goggled the recommendation for exhaust tip longevity and found this website from AutoAnything. Just plain good ole information!

I bought a Ford oem valance in the box. Little Ford sticker, black coat on it, etc. i gotta say that cutting a downturn valance for cutouts cannt be too tough. The edges arent rolled or anything...a good body man with a template would probably be able to do it with a wheel and finish off the edges in an hour. Probably without taking it off the car! I paid $300 bucks for the valance!

Hey Greg,

 

I love the look on your car... I'm thinking of going with the Gibson Intercooled Dual Wall Tip, they appear to be awesome and almost bullet proof! :)

I was reading that our cars take a 3" but these 3.5" look perfect on your car.

 

Cheers and Happy New Year!

Hi John,

 

Thanks for your kind words, and i'm glad you like the look of my tips.

 

Your Autoanything tip looks very sharp as well, although it doesn't appear to have a very angled face edge, and the edge itself doesn't smooth taper back in on an angle like mine do. Those two characteristics gives my tips a special look i think.

 

The main thing is that whatever you finally choose, you will be very hapy with.My tips are quality stainless steel, and i'm expecting to get good life out of them as well.

 

Thanks John, and all the best for the new year to you,

 

Greg.:)

Great Points Greg!

 

This is exactly why I posted instead of purchasing...attention to detail. I didn't even notice it! But I do like the features you mention. A little harder to find but I have time. I did find this one but it looks like the have the brand name right on top which i'm not sure I'm so keen with. By the way I'm looking at the 2.5 x 3.5 x 12" polished stainless steel version.

The cool slash-cut exhaust tips on the Mach 1 w/cut-out valance is one of the coolest things on the rear end of the car, IMHO. Since I went with a 2.5" Pypes stainless exhaust system, making a pair of stock (or Scott Drake) Mach 1 tips would defeat the purpose.

 

So my plan is to stick with Pypes and go with their polished stainless 2.5" slash cut tips. $29.95 a pair through Summit Racing:

That should give me pretty much the stock look, without having to restrict the exhaust flow.

Hey John and Eric,

 

Just a few more thoughts and help on the tips.

 

Believe it or not, a few months ago i got my muffler man to install two new larger diameter tips. I thought the previous ones looked OK, but going a little wider (next size up ) would give a better look. See my before and after pics below.What i have now looks good to me and going even lager would make the whole thing look a bit goofy i think.

 

Also i found this link to what could be worth looking into.

Hey Greg,

 

Great link...I did find some I liked but they don't ship outside of Australia. I've found similar ones here so that shouldn't be an issue. I think you're after again picture is the same one I've been referring to all along with the great look. Those are 3.5" tips correct? Also, can you please confirm that you didn't have to modify the valance at all? Many on here have mentioned that 2.5" or 3" is as large as we should go. I agree that any bigger would not work and smaller just doesn't have that mean cool look your car has.

 

Now I'm really starting to think it may be time to get my whole exhaust system done. I was thinking that I should just go and have it done at a local shop, just picking out headers, tips, etc. Or does it make more sense just to buy the kit from OMS or CJPony? I have the 351C 2V and put headers on it 12 years ago but they are looking pretty shabby. I'm currently running a 2" exhaust not sure what others are running...need to do a little homework as I'm sure it's all here on the site.

 

Cheers and Thanks!

John, I went with a Pypes Street Pro 2.5" stainless system w/X-pipe on mine, and for the money, completeness of the kit, and fit & finish, I don't think it can be beat (although it won't fit with a staggered shock set-up).

 

I had the entire system from headers to rear valance on in a few hours - the only things I had to tweak were the lead pipes from the collectors (since Hooker Comp Headers don't come back straight), and cut them to length as well (which you'll have to do with any kit).
