OK - due to all the good advice here on the site - I have been talked into doing the exhaust a different way (I appreciate all the help from you guys!!)...
I ordered the 2 1/2 mandrel bent rear from MAC that exits the GT valance, and am about to order the Dynomax Utlra flows. The question I have now is - will they fit under the car? I talked with dynomax, and they cannot say which cars it will fit - the dimensions are :
19" Long X 4 1/2" Deep X 9 3/4" Wide....

My current setup is - flowmaster 40's (rusted out) and the dimensions are:
14" Long X 4" Deep X 9 1/2" Wide.....

The length is what I am really asking you about... Will it be too long??

Thanks,
Brian

I'm not sure, but shorter is better.

Personally, I'd probably go with mufflers that are made for a FOX mustang. They are generally shorter than the 'universal' mufflers offered by most companies.

The mandrel bent units will give you a little more room to work, though.

Good Luck!

I see the recommended dynomax mufflers for 5.0's are #17222, and are the 19" overall, 14" can length.

Oh, did you notice Dynomax has a $20 rebate on their mufflers that ends October 31?

They will be long, but should still fit fine. The original 289 HIPO mufflers had very short muffler bodies. About 12-13 inches if memory serves me.
