Post Exhaust system

So im thinking bout doing my exhaust system but dont know what set up i want, i know i want to be able to sneak up to places, but when i stomp on it for it to be heard and sound good, most definately do not want it to sound like a pissed off bumble bee

I've been looking at the MagnaFlow cat back. You can hear it on a 4.0 Explorer at their website. Don't know anyone with it though, but I'm willing to bet it's pretty awesome.

flowmaster has the 60 series - supposedly it is excellent for 6cyl engines; loud enough outside and quiet inside. They have a video of an import running with 60 series, but it is hard to judge.

I was told at a muffler shop that putting a flow-master muffler would add 10 to 15 more hp to my 3.0l engine. I am interested in better mpg. as well as more hp but this sounds far fetched. Please advise.

that is far fetched. The Ranger exhaust breaths well for what it is. Expect no gain in power, especially with a Flowmaster (they arent called Slowmaster or Blowmaster for nothing). Swap out a muffler purely for the sound you want.

I recommend a flowmaster for sure, not necessarily quiet but it doesn't sound like a rice rocket that way. I have a 60 series which has a nice roar but is not obnoxious when driving like the super 44

Depends on the application. They are traditional style mufflers and often do not provide any increase on power over stock. On fbodies, we can see 10rwhp with a good catback, often times you see/hear results of flowmaster catbacks giving no gain or reducing power; though the latter is rare.

if you just put the muffler on, dont expect an increase in power on any muffler lol, but if you do a whole exhaust system you better damn well expect an increase lol

whole exhaust would include, imo; headers, high flow cats, mandrel bent tubing and muffler. a catback isnt a full exhaust really though

I did the flowmaster 40 and dumped it. It has a low rumble to it, I was hoping for a little louder but it sounds good when you get on it

yes sir! and it sounds like a v8 at idle, but it isn't very loud at idle after it warms up. on a cold start it roars. but when you get on the gas it sounds beast.
