Unfortunately, it's a 4cyl. Any exhaust on a 4cyl is gonna sound like a ricer. I've heard a Flowmaster 40 system with dual tailpipes on your gen ranger with the same 2.3L....didn't sound bad. At high rpm's it kinda was poopy. Only because it sounded like a civic. Under normal driving, it sounded good.

I have had a number of vehicles with other than stock exhaust. I had a flowmaster single in/dual out on my old nissan truck years ago. It didn't sound bad, had the chrome tips usually seen on v8 trucks. I called them echo cannons (just what most people called them in okla).

A tip won't do anything other than highlight the rusty exhaust pipe. Just don't go and put a ricer muffler and exit it out in front of rear tire. That looked beyond stupid. I seen the sh*t up in Watertown, NY several years back when I was stationed at Drum.
