So how many of you have done dual exhaust on your 86s? I’ve spoke with Shannon at Stingers and got the general idea what I’ll have to do, but does anyone have any recommendations, pictures of their setup, or links? I find very few 86 dual setups even on Youtube.

Thanks in advance!

I imagine it's basically installing the kit from Stinger. I haven't done duals on a TC but I replaced the exhaust on my SVO many years ago and I've done singles on several TC.

'85.5 & '86 SVO twEECer

'93 LX 5.0 notch Moates chips

Here's the Stinger dual kit on an '87. If you install it as-is, you'll find the tailpipes hang low after the axle. Stinger just runs them straight back without tucking them. I re-did the rear sections to tuck them and added MagnaFlow tailpipes.

Thanks but it looked nothing like that when I got it. It was a lifelong mid-west car so it was nasty underneath.

Thank you for the reply and images! That’s definitely a clean and well detailed undercarriage!
One question, as I have an 86’ with the fuel line/filter mounted to the passenger side frame rail, how are the 87-88 TCs routed away from the exhaust, especially with duals?
Speaking with Shannon at Stingers, he said I’d have to run Mustang or custom lines to an in-tank 255 pump. Any recommendations?

The '87 fuel filter is just behind the lift point on the right side of the pictures. You can see the fuel line entering that area.
