Default please help im going crazy!!

ok so i see everyone welding up just mufflers and maybe some cat backs but i wanna do an full exhaust on my truck but all i kno is i want a nice gargle to it nothin raspy like a honda or nothin to mellow, i think i like the flowaster 40 or 44 not sure wich one is a deeper tone, but also i wanted to do full pipes from header back with 3 high flow cats and 1 cat delete. has anyone done this before? pics, vids ,opinions? if so what cats work well with flowmaster since they dont make any?.

thanks everyone.
Aaron

I'd look into Hooker Headers exhaust systems. It might not be what your looking for. But I put a Hooker Aero Chamber muffler on my 4.0, and there designed to take out the raspy poping and high pitched sound that comes with a V6. It has a nice rumble now, not super loud, but I imagine with a system it would sound very good.

high flow cats are a complete rip off...........theres really no restriction in the stock cats.....i would just leave the stock cats on....youll save yourself a bundle and a headache...the sound your looking to get isint impossible..but you might have to lower the standards a bit!! lol...with any 6 cylinder your going to be limited with how much rumble youll get out the tailpipe.not to mention if your set up like my 01 3.0 you have 4 or 5 cats I believe......I tried a flowmaster....I tried a glasspack......i wasnt satisfied with any of it.....I wound up just chopping the exhaust at the flange right under the cab...welding a pipe with a 3 inch adapter and ran it side exit right in front of the r/r tire ( with a tip) this was the only rumble that satisfied me!

I made this video to show how JBA S.S. headers and exhaust (cat forward & back) sound on my Ranger. The description below it says more.

first off im a big fan of hooker and i did not know they make a system for the ranger thats sick! i will deff be lookin into that.angelomm... high flow cats do make a diff wel at least they have or the rest fo the vehicles iv owned lol. but i do have high standards...im cursed with the modo do something once and do it right ahah i hate it, but i did what you are talking about to my friends ranger and i was pritty happy with it but it was not the sound i am lookin for. i wish i had a clip of my old car it was a v6 as well and it sounded nice. thats a really good vid. edge. did u run headers and everything else(cats etc.) back? and how much did it run you?

Thanks. Cat forward shorty headers...nicely made...and a cat back single exhaust..large diameter..nice polished end. Around $900CDN I think it was. I didn't opt for either of the ceramic coatings. Did you read the description below the video? Rather not repeat it all.

----------

Here's the JBA website. On this page scroll down..V-6 Rangers are at the bottom..click on more and it will tell you all about them.

PS: I love mine. EGR valve fitting can be ordered on either side,..or not at all I guess. System is EPA legal.

At the very bottom of the page is an image..Maximize Miles per Gallon..JBA. I swear I did notice better mileage right away...not huge but enough to notice.

You could go for the JBA shorty headers..go Titanium coating...and the rest custom if you want the cat changes and duals. A local shop here can do shit like that..probably the same there too. Borla and others sell parts for stainless exhausts to be custom put together....not made to fit on the vehicle but still a help to making a custom exhaust. Thanks for saying my vid was crisp...available in 1080 resolution..takes a while to load though. My best one is titled Stratford....made most of the music myself except for the bagpipes/cemetary part. Not all is shot from my Ranger....you may not think so unless you watch it all.

----------

Here is Borla's universal hardware/tubing/etc. page. Another page has a end tip selection.

That video I made isn't like that..it sounds exactly like that. Is long on purpose to show how it can be quiet or not in town and on the highway. Besides good HD picture my camera also captures sound well. I noticed all Flowmaster makes for a 2002 is a muffler....maybe not even stainless.

----------

At least that's what showed doing a Ranger search...complete parts listing.

Just looking at your name...Aaron Levine...maybe related to Avril Levine? Now she went POP in recent years($$$)..here she is in 1997...awesome...I hope she does this one still in concerts...maybe not?


Whoops..sorry I thought her last name was spelled Levine....notice now (even after searching and finding this with your last name!!!) that it is different...still close enough that both last names may have the same origin way back. Hope you like Avril back then anyways.
