Default Exhaust system advice

I have possibly a stupid question but what the hell, i have a 95 aerostar with the vulcan 3.0. Its been a great van, but i did realize that the y pipe has rotted on me but not the whole y pipe. The rust hole is on top of the y pipe. Not to mention my exhaust bracket arond the pipe behind cat 2 to the muffler has broke due to the age of the exhaust. I eventually do want to put a v8 in, but for now all i can live with is the v6 until i have a garage and $. I was thinking of a custom exhaust with a h or x pipe but am unsure and what exhaust system setup and brand should i use? I was thinking dual setup so when i v8 it then all i have to change is the h or x pipe or maybe have it fabbed so it can bolt to both engines. Im stumped and need advice. I wasnt sure if my aeros exhaust setup is the same as rangers. Salvage yards are about 50 or more miles away so any advice is helpful to me. Thanks Brian

What i plan on doing is putting a 302 in it in the near future but for now i just want to get the exhaust fixed but my idea was to try getting it ready for a v8 but at a later time when i have access to a garage and the funds as well. Any advice will greatly help me out. Im just trying to plan ahead so the cost wont be as high and itll be one less thing to purchase when i get the v8 installed. Again any advice will greatly appreciated. Thanks Brian
