Default Performance and MPG muffler?

So, I need a new muffler. Mine has a pretty good hole in it. I'm not really interested in sound, and I will not be putting a complete exhaust system in. What I am wondering, is if there are mufflers that could improve mpg and/or horsepower, without adding a complete exhaust system. I was sort of looking at a 50 series flowmaster, but didn't know if this would be a good choice.

Here is the truck:

2004 Ford Ranger
4wd Supercab
4.0L v6
Automatic transmission
No modifications.


Any thoughts/ideas are much appreciated.


Thanks.

there is no muffler that will get you any significant gains in power or mileage. i did a full system on mine including headers and i only noticed a small increase in mileage but barely. if your not concerned about sound i would just replace it with a stock muffler.

Well that works, then. With the flowmaster that I was looking at, it was not really that big of a price difference, so I may just buy that one anyway.
