Upgrade the performance and power output of your Ford Thunderbird engine using a custom exhaust system from CARiD. All our Ford Thunderbird custom exhaust systems are designed to boost horsepower and torque, and enhance overall performance in the car. The right custom exhaust will release as much as 10hp extra or more from your engine, depending on the exhaust system you pick. To enjoy the greatest increase in power and torque, get the Borla Ford Thunderbird cat back exhaust system. It gives up to 10% more horsepower and has a distinct, throaty roar that commands respect like the stock exhaust system would never do. Flowmaster and MagnaFlow cat back exhaust systems for the Ford Thunderbird are equally good. Supplementary performance exhaust components such as headers and mufflers will boost the performance of your Ford. We have quite a number from Gibson, Onki, Weapon-R and RBP at the CARiD store.

Because they are restrictive in design, stock exhaust systems limit the amount and velocity of exhaust flow passing through the system at any given time. The more you work the engine, the greater the level of backpressure the stock exhaust system creates. As a result, exhaust gases are not expelled as quickly as they should, and this costs you a huge amount of horsepower. A Ford Thunderbird custom exhaust system will solve this problem by increasing exhaust flow so that the exhaust pipes are clear and the engine free to breathe and generate more power. You will also love how the new exhaust system sounds. It gives a deep but contained sound, which is not overly loud or aggressive. Each of our Ford Thunderbird exhaust systems has a distinct note, which you can alter using a muffler for a personal touch.

    ST1253S Exhaust Tip
    Installed a Borla Cat Back Exhaust on my 2002 Thunderbird. Borla 4 " exhaust tips took away from classic look of my bird. Cut them off and installed ST1253S tips, brought the look back to classic. I received 2 driver side tips that installed quite easily. Not quite sure why you sell a drivers side and passenger side tip? If their is a difference, could be in the opening bevel. Hard to tell. Please let me know as my order had to different part numbers.
