Hey everyone. I have a 66 coupe with 2 1/4 inch dual flowmaster exhaust and I have really been wanting to get that look that the gt's have with the dual exhaust coming out the back of the rear valence. like through the two holes? I hope I am explaining it right, but anyways, I was wondering if I can cut the holes in the rear valence of my mustang and just re route the tail pipes to fit through them, or do I have to buy a new rear valence with the holes precut. I'm not extremely handy with tools, so if anyone could tell me if this is something I could do myself, or would this project require the purchase of a new rear valence, or proffesional work. Also, can you please tell me aproximately what you think it would run me? Thank you very much for your replies

I wouldn't cut the valence that you have.. you can get a new rear valence for about $25.. then have it painted your car's color and bolt it on.. piece of cake..

Don't forget to buy the stainless trim that lines the holes.. another $30 or so..

Good luck!

I did this too. Buy a new valence, dirt cheap and easy to install. You'll also need the trim rings, and if you want the full look you'll need the slatted GT exhaust tips as well. All this stuff is available repro at most Stang supply houses.

The GT exhaust tips are set up for something like a 1-7/8 pipe. Muffler shop had to play some games to get them to fit my 2" tubes. This will probably be even tougher with your 2-1/4" pipe, but I'm sure a good muffler shop could figure it out.

Good luck

The holes are oval. They'd be hard to cut and harder to cut right. When you have your muffler shop install the tips, make sure they pay attention to how the pipes come through the valance. They need to be centered and the same top to bottom, or they'll look funny. I worked with the exhaust guy that did mine and he fiddled with them for about 30 minutes before he was satisfied with the alignment. One of the advantages to going to a guy that's been doing this sort of work for 50 years, and just does it to supliment his Social Security, I guess.
