Looking for catback exhaust for my 460...Just the catback

Trying to piece together my own kit because I do not want to spend $$ on a banks powerpack, especially since my manifolds are in good condition. I already have the Banks Ram Air intake and I am looking for an exhaust system to help a little with the back flow.

It seems the companies I look at (Banks, Gibson) have the catback/exhaust, but they either come with headers (which I do not need) or intake (do not need). I am looking for JUST the exhaust system.

FYI I have the NON CATALYTIC model year of Ford 460 in CA too lol

Thanks all!!

Any muffler shop can supply the parts however, when I had a 460 in a coach, I installed the Banks complete kit, headers and pipes all the way to the rear. Made a HUGE difference in power. I know Gale Banks and saw the test reports with and without headers and it's a significant improvement. If you get smart and buy a complete system, make sure the headers are stainless steel. Soak down the exhaust manifold bolts with PB Blaster before removal.
Believe me, the complete system is a game changer. When towing my enclosed trailer with my sandrail inside the trailer, driving up Whitewater pass (west of Palm Springs) without the system, on a good day I could climb the hill at 49 MPH. With the complete system, I could climb at 57 MPH.

Flowmaster USED to make a bolt on exhaust system for the 460 F53. I have it on mine. Pretty sure they discontinued production a couple years ago. Search for "Flowmaster 17206" but make sure you verify they actually have it in stock before ordering.
FYI, the Flowmaster muffler is LOUD. I added a second low restriction Magnaflow muffler inline and it sounds just right.

LJowdy has a good suggestion. Just have a local shop bend up a system for you.

Yea, this option is looking better and better. Problem is I already have the Ram Air intake. I wonder if I can just order the headers and exhaust? The kits Banks sell (i.e. stinger, or power pack) already come with ram air. Ill do a little more digging. Thanks guys!

Did a flow master on my 460 motor. Got it from summit or Jegs. Less than 200 bucks. Worth a look.

The "cat-back" larger exhaust is a waste of money and time. The smallest restriction in the entire exhaust system controls flow and back-pressure.
