Yes, it is strictly a bolt-on affair. Flanges bolt on at the converter pipe/h-pipe joint. The h-pipe/front of muffler joint and tail pipes/back of the muffler are a slip-fit and clamped. I got all the exhaust parts from the h-pipe back (both sides), both gaskets, 4 clamps and 4 new nuts/bolts for the h-pipe for $236 and the shipping was $90. Our discount took just under $12 off the parts.

I bought the entire Walker kit downstream of the H-pipe in May of 2007 (mufflers and tailpipes). I didn't expect it to last long, and after 5 years the left muffler inlet cracked apart from corrosion.

The original factory H-pipe still looks ok, and the stainless clamps I used are still bright and shiny.

I ordered the Walker SoundFX mufflers and Walker tailpipes to see if I can get another 5 years out of the setup.

From what I can tell, the SoundFX mufflers look a lot like the Dynomax Super Turbo mufflers which I had on the Thunderbird.

For awhile I was wondering why my Crown Vic started to sound like a Mustang during a cold start... then I noticed the muffler not attached to the h-pipe!

I had Dynomax Ultra Flo mufflers, but the Crown Vic blew out all of the innards in those mufflers (it was just an empty box after a few years).

There is a guy here that owns a muffler shop that everyone uses. He's a biker with the name "Ramjet" & very reasonable prices. I bought the 04 Ultimate in 2008 with 18k on it & had him put his "no name brand" of 18" glasspacks on it. I now have 90k & they ares still in good shape. A friend of mine & I had Ramjet take the "H" pipe out of both cars. (His is a 03 Town Car) Both cars now have a sound similar of the old flat head Fords. With a light foot they have a good sound but stick your foot in it & they have a deeper, more distinct sound. After living in New Jersey over 30+ years+ & dealing with New Jerseys inspection it's a simple matter here. Lights work, wipers work , turn signals work, OK you passed, all for the sum of $12.00.

Very happy with the MKS. Finally got used to all the bells & whistles. Better handling, good MPG (25-27 highway) Better stopping distance & much faster acceleration.

NJ inspection was a lot more difficult within the past 10 years. They checked my brakes to see if they locked up properly, sniffed the exhaust manifolds, etc... and failed my T-bird because a sidemarker was cracked (and had been cracked for nearly 20 years passing NJ inspections during that time).

I looked at custom stainless installs and they all were in the $700-$800 range.

I used the cheaper Sound FX muffler on my wifes last Mountaineer. It was a direct fit piece, no modifing necessay. It was however not well built and the inlet and outlets both necked down inside the muffler to less than 2". It did not look like it would flow well at all. If I wasn't selling the truck I would have sent it back and went with the more expensive choice or looked into a custom system.

I got the SoundFX installed. It is noticeably louder than the QuietFlow but I can hear it sort of rumbling at idle. It is not as loud as the Ultra Flo mufflers, but I could tell the mufflers were lighter and slightly louder.
