I'm installing a set of BBK headers (96-04 Mustang) on my 1999 LTC. I have removed the stock dual exhaust including the manifolds.

I'm trying to solve the problem with the EGR. Specifically an EGR tube with the DPFE tubes, long enough to reach the driver side EGR port on the headers (stock location is on passenger side) and back to reach the EGR valve.

Has anyone successfully solved this problem?

Thank you,

I think some people ended up using flexible tube that is made of natural gas , apparently the coupling are the same size .

The gas tube will work for later model Panthers, but since your car has the DPFE sensor separate, I think you'd be best off modifying your existing tube.
