Have a muffler shop make one.


Are you talking about the pipe that goes from head to head and has the check valve in it? If you are and can't find any then you can use metal head plugs and drive them in and eliminate that system. But if your looking for the one that goes from header pipe to header pipe then what F-O-R stated an exhaust shop is your best bet, although Fords really didn't need it to make the exhaust sound good unlike Chevy's, Dodges..

Thanks- the previous owner hacked it up and took it from a single exhaust to a double- putting a cherry bomb on one side and a muffler directly under the cab- so no tail pipe. Which is a problem. My mechanic says that we need this cross over pipe which seems incredibly hard to find- he can get all the other parts made but this.


I would take it to an exhaust shop and have the system done right, that should eliminate any problems.

Thanks everyone!
