Default Better magnaflow muffler?? oval or circle.

I am thinking of doing a dual side exhaust on my 04 ranger edge. I am thinking of going magnaflow and wondering which muffler is better; an oval muffler or circle muffler. (look at pics for better understanding). also, with 2 tips on the side or one tip. there are going to be tips at the end, stainless steel. thnkz!! :P

Number 2 I think would sound best if you are going to run 2 pipes after the muffler.

I have a 14" oval on mine single in dual out. Sounds much better but not really that loud.

Side


Hindsight wished I would have gone flowmaster 44. Will probably change it and dump it once I lift it haha

Dual out is just for looks. What you want to look at more is what diameter pipe your going to run after the muffler. I wouldn't go over 2 1/2" your just losing backpressure after that.

Don't have much experience with the round mufflers. I would think better flow but less rumble. Again that's just guessing.

----------

What exactly are you wanting to get out of your exhaust? Better flow? Or better sound?

Clearance how? Lol

If your actually wheeling it (hard) I wouldn't do dual out. I'd dump it at the axle.

I am looking for some flow and rumble. its a 3L, so i want to achieve some noise. after the muffler, i was thinking of a single 4 inch tip, 2.5" inlet. or 2 tips, 2.5" inlet, 3"tip.

for a V6 or 4 i would go with a oval muff single pipe swept side pipe basicly stock but slightly wider with slightly more flow. no more than 2 1/2 pipe from cat back unless u do all of the exaust. headers, cats, intake, MAS, sensors and reprogram the comp and sensors...so the first.... you can get a rumble on take off butt it will sound worse than a souped up honda in higher RPMs. in my opinion gibson makes the best shit for 6 and 4 cylinder motors.
