The tip is flared out. The whole pipe is not that same diameter.

It was a dual rear exit exhaust chrome oval tips with a magnaflow muffler. I have since changed the muffler out for a different magnaflow. The thunderbolt was really loud and my wife didn't like it.

just for giggles i went to a Ford parts website and cross referenced exhaust system part numbers and they are the same for 3.0 and 4.0 in both edge models and non edge models. every ranger no matter the engine size (2.3 I4, 3.0 V6, 4.0 V6) all have the same size exhaust with the Thunderbolt being the only exception.

Yep! BS there is no tune shop that will dyno your vehicle and NOT give u a print out of your results! NONE! I have an 04 2.0 wrx and i've been on two dynos at 2 different shops for protunes and seen ALOT of other wrx's and STI's do dyno pulls and EVERY SINGLE car has gotten a print out! Just admit you're BS!
