Watch with those kind of mufflers. The way the baffling in some of them is done actually robs performance instead of give some. Make sure the baffles are pressed out into the fiberglass instead of into the exhaust flow.

Do your research into glass packs before buying.

yeah i did, the vortex is supposed to have near perfect flow but not quite as loud as a glasspack.

both videos are the same exhaust set up. if you get the xtreme be prepared to set off some car alarms. not sure about the rangers but we have 1 muffler with 2 cats. stock pipes are 2.5" i kept them the same diameter. but the duals after the muff. are 2.25

Yea I know they're the same. I'm just saying, in the first video I wasn't real sure if I liked it or not. But the second video changed my mind.
