Default What kind of exhaust should i get for a 2002 Ranger Edge?

I have a 2002 Ford Ranger Edge 2WD; 3.0L V6. I was thinking about getting a 40 Series Flowmaster exhaust put on it. What do you think?

save your money, take the muffler off and just put a straight pipe, with your normal exhuast system on it, and leave the cats on. it will sound like a nice flow master with out the screech at the top of the gear like a normal straight pipe. i did this to mine and i have a 2wd v6 3.0 also.

uhh my friend who is a mechanic said it wasnt as long as you had the exhaust pipes on it. but im pretty sure it is, but unless your in NYC or something it dont matter, it sounds just like flowmaster, glass pipes magna flow or whatever, and unless a cop want to jack up your truck to see if the mufflers off, youll be fine.

I know a guy at a muffler shop that does inspection so he would pass it either way. But i already put a flowmaster on it. it sounds good, but i kinda want somethin louder

well if you had a straight pipe its about the same loudness as flowmasters but if you take the cats off and or make it a true straight pipe its significantly louder

Ive got a 3chamber flowmaster muffler, pacesetter headers, and 3 inch exhaust dumped behind the cab on my 4.0 (no cats)...I dont know what it would sound like on a 3.0...but it is deep and loud on my 4.0...Ive had more than a few people think it was a v8.
