Nope. You'll have to custom fab it.

That's a cat-back, and not a true dual exhaust.

Not sure you'll get much benefit from a dual exhaust on a 3.0. Get a less restrictive cat and good catback with a dual outlet muffler would probably give you most of the boost you're looking for.

it just depends on the shop.. make sure they make it so it clears the axle w/ plenty of room to spare for flexing.. worst case u get them to do it, then find a friend thatcan weld, or go to antother shop and have them weld it up..

i was quoted "below $300" for a flow 40 and custom side pipes..


as for u thinking it seems a little low, im with you
allsooo, make sure they know EXACTLY what you mean, they may be under the impression u want dual cat-back for that price

$300 is a good price, ask about a warrenty on their work.

PS I'm glad we don't have emission inspections in TN

you might be able to put the 3rd one on just one of the sides... that 'should ' work because how would it know its no a y pipe...

yea and taht price is great... i got quoted 250 conservatively for a stock system

also, gunna be a trick mounting job of the mufflers because of the gas tank....

If you eliminate the CAT you will have a CEL no matter where you put the oxygen sensor. Besides, the downstream O2 sensor doesn't control mixture, the upstream one near the engine does. On V engines, there are two upstream sensors, one for each side so you can keep the two with a dual with no problem.

However, the OBD2 system monitors cat function by measuring O2 at both the header exit and the CAT exit and calculates catalyst efficiency. Possible your '96 doesn't do that - but I think it does.
