Default 4 cylinder exhuast

So this subject has probably been beat to death but i have the 2.3l 4cylinder with 8 plugs out of a 96 ranger... I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for exhuast as far as performance goes... or is the increase in performance to dollar ratio not worth it?

From what I've seen, throwing a turbo or a super charger on the engine is the only way to get any real power gains out of a four cylinder. Expensive, but it will get you better results than trying to tweak the exhaust and intake will do.
