I have a 2010 Ranger Sport with a 4.0L as well. I just had catback Flowmaster 40 series duals put on and it sounds a lot better than the borla I used to have on my 98'. I wil try and get a video of how it sounds on here.

I went with magnaflow because everyone and their brother runs flowmaster, its obviously quieter than flowmaster but I still think it sounds good. In the spring Im getting a custom dual set up ran with either SLP or Bassani

40 series way to quiet? really? ....having cats will have a huge effect on the sound, from personal exp' flowmaster is the way to go, they last longer, no internals to rot away, for past 12yrs I alway buy FM so I never have to buy another muffler for that vehicle again

I'm gonna be honest man. I've had friends that run Flowmasters on their trucks and they sound pretty good. Personally, i run a Magnaflow i got from my grandpa's 67' Camaro with a 3" inlet/outlet. Nothing fancy, just had the guy put it out into stock position. It just comes back with everything else stock infront of it. It's sounds great. Not too loud, but still has a deep rumble to it. I don't think i could be much louder anyway since the cops round here are pretty picky. Haha. But I really don't think you can go wrong either way.

thanks everyone! its going to be a hard decision, i was going towards magnaflow, but now i might just go with FM, i have a few months to decide, for some reason our exhaust systems are really expensive up here, i see some of you guys sayin you spent like 200 and lower, thats not even half what all these places in canada want me to pay

check into getting a custom exhaust ran. you just buy the muffler and the shop will run the pipes the way you want. its usually considerably cheaper than buying a complete after-market exhaust.

Default Re: flowmaster or magnaflow ?

I have a Flowmaster 40 series and am about to replace it with Magnaflow.
That Flowmaster drives me crazy at highway speeds. I wanted something aggressive sounding when Im accelerating but other than that I cant stand all the noise. I guess getting older has taken a lot of that loud muffler business out of me.
