Just a couple of questions about MidwestSHO.com. Will their catback system fit on my 01 SES? Is it worth paying all that extra money for the stainless steel system as opposed to the regular one? Thanks for any replies! :)

Shouldn't all gen 3 exhaust interchange. With the except of hanger locations. Due to haveing duals and not, plus the SHO haveing a 3rd cat.
I also think these are for gen 2 and 1 models.

Anything can be made to fit. However, your best bet is to find a junkyard Gen 3 or 4 with factory duals. Hack the back portion off (from in front of the Y) and pay the $20 or whatever for it. Then have a muffler shop weld it in for $50 or so.

Or you can have them bend you up a custom cat-back. Don't go too big on the pipe diameter... 2" is more than enough for duals. And make sure they mandrel bend the pipes. Some shops (very few, actually) will crimp-bend the pipes. It's cheaper, but cuts down on flow and has less rigidity. I don't think you'll pay more than $200 plus the cost of mufflers, but that's just a guess.

All Tauruses (or at least from Gen 2 on up) have stainless pipes. Only get non-stainless pipes if you plan on keeping the car less than 2 years.
