Default backpressure?

so on my 4.0 i'm considering deleting the last cat, continuing with 2.5" pipe to a cherrybomb and either dumping it or running it out before my back tire. Am i gonna lose any power? and if so what else can i do to have a good sound without any riceyness?

also has anyone ever bought from this guy on ebay? this is the muffler i want to buy

Good sound - ricerness = no glass-pack. I have had one for 3 years and it's been driving me insane for 2 of them. If you're worried about back-pressure, again, no glass-pack. A glass-pack is a straight through design and with no cats, I don't think you could make it long enough to get adequate back-pressure, but I'm no auto tech.

Dynamax, thrush, magnaflow, all make muffler similar to Flowmaster for round $50... dnt waste your money on glasspack, you'll hate it..
glasspacks clearly state the make "high frequency" sounds... you want "LOW frequency" like video #2
watch the vid. this sounds like pure SH*T!

Then I'd do a magnaflow turbo muffler. Deep, loud, and decent back-pressure. Of course, don't take my word for it, do your own homework. That's my opinion.

Try Flowtech Mufflers. They have that nice deep rumble to them and possibly the sound your looking for about $50 to $60 bucks and you won't lose any backpressure either. Autozone has a catalog of different mufflers out on display for customers to choose what they want. Just don't go above 2.5 inches on the outlets and you'll be fine. And if you need to know the stock pipe size it's 2 1/4 inches for a reference. I've had All manufacturers installed on my ranger and none of them match the Flowtech Mufflers deep tone. The part number for the stock replacement is: 50121FLT . It's a single inlet of 2 1/4 inches and an offset outlet of 2 1/4 inches. Go 6 inches behind the cab and you'll a nice deep tone that sets off factory installed car alarms. It's not loud but it's extremely deep. After you do this people will swear you have V8 in your ranger until you show them.
