    What are good donor cars for exhaust? I'd prefer an h-pipe.

    I've got a v6, looking to put turbos this winter while it's not being used for fear of salty snow. The exhaust manifold coupling weld came-undone recently and it's time to change that, and while I was, I thought it'd be nice to get my true dual-on. Sorry for the lack of info.
    I want the H-pipe because I'd like to have more low-end torque, and I think it would help round-out the turbo-lag curve.

    I'm pretty sure there are a lot of aftermarket options out there. I don't know if you can swap the v8 stuff onto the v6 without modifications. Have to see if any other v6 guys on here have done it.

    I know for sure one of the couplers doesn't work with the v6 headers, but anyone know if the other side works?

    If you are gonna put twin turbos on a V6 (make sure you address the weak head gaskets first), you will need custom exhaust anyway.

    Even with a Mustang H-pipe, you've gonna need to cut and weld

    The turbos are going to be further-down the road, but you're right. I don't know what you mean about the weak head gaskets, though. I know the heads are prone to warp, and I have ARP studs in there, but What else need I do?
