Re: exhaust system for 2.5L standard cab short bed 112" WB??
if you want cheap, don't buy a kit. well thats what i say but i can weld, don't know about you. grab a dynomax bullet muffler. they sound good on absolutely everything. made a 4 cyl ranger sound like a v8, and i've had them on rams, f150s, carbed and injected chevy v8s. they're as loud as a muffler allows though, a glorified glasspack. they used to make them with stainless mesh instead of fiberglass to prevent blowing them out and i'm not sure if they still do since they changed the name technically from "bullets" to "ultraflos". anyways that's the muffler. they're only like 30 or 35 brand new off summit racing. and a cat off ebay would probably be your best bet. magnaflow makes some high flow cats that are barely more than a regular cat. a couple reducers, and you can install all that for less than $175 ish. good luck finding a "kit" that's less than that. even if you can't weld, maybe you know a buddy that does.
