Post exhuast kick again!!! please help!

okay guys found a Dynomax Turbo exhaust for my 2.3L its a single outlet which is fine with me. its only $225 for the whole set and it uses the original mounts and hangers. I want a nice sound but dont wanna sound like a bloated bumblebee or a ricer and I know I wont sound like a V8 but a nice little growl or better performance would be nice. Any Info or input from people who have done and would suggest (or warn me about) would be appreciated!!

As a forum site you guys are the best. Lets pull through for me again!!

Thanks Guys! I know youre gonna help me out alot!

http://www.dynomax.com/part_view.php...317&engine=2.3

This is the link for the kit from dynomax. Summit Racing is the cheapest Ive found.

$225?! That is not bad at all. And everything on there seems to be a simple bolt on process, nice! I have a Dynomax Super Turbo exhaust muffler on my 3.0L V6 edge. All I can tell you is for you to get it! It takes a while for it to get worked in but it sounds amazing. Yeah it's not going to sound like a V8 but it won't sound ricey or bloated. It's going to have that nice little growl tone to it and when you won't to pass someone (which you will want to ), your definitely going to hear it really growl . I just have the muffler with no pipes (dumped) and it sounds amazing! I would love to get the whole piping kit to complete the setup but that (hopefully) will be in the summer. So, IMO, I say get it!

Actually, it's 236 total with handling and what not. Could be cheaper but you never know, the actual Dynomax website probably shows us the set price but that's just my two cents . Either way, both good prices on two good sites. I still say for him to get it

lol sorry. But no, maybe that site has the good price overall. Because I was on the actual Dynomax site and couldn't find any prices or shipping quotes. All it says is find a dealer near you lol.

Scratch that, he said he got the price from Summit lol my bad.

I never understood putting a whole system like this in these trucks. Why not just get a muffler if your looking for sound. Is something like this really any better? Just seems like a waste of money to me but maybe I am just ignorant lol

I had muffler shop remove cat, installed 40 series Flowmaster, 3" all the way out.. round $160 installed. really nice deep growl, no one believes its a 4-clanger..

the 3" pipe helps a bunch in sound, at first I used stock tail pipe and it sounded horrible..

my brothers 4 banger Dakota has a flowmaster and sounds like crap.. as well as a friends 4 banger S10 with same set up..

most 4 bangers sound like doo doo with a flowmaster and rice out real bad, guess the ford tuning makes all the difference..

lol. Well that is why I have mine dumped because of the sound it gives me. I tried it with my stock tail pipe on it and can barely hear anything. If I want to do pipes, I will do dual exhaust with two Dynomax Super Turbos . mmmm

just remember, make sure you get a good size pipe.... at least 2.5". small pipe makes it rappy sounding. My borla was 2.5 with a 3" "turbo" tip
