Default good exhaust for a v6 4 liter?

i have a v6 4 litre 1998 ranger xlt 2wd.. and are there any cheapish exhaust systems out there that make my truck louder/sound deeper?

how hard are exhausts to install?

how much does just a dual pipe system cost?

It's cheaper to head to an exhaust shop...prices very ALOT shop to shop. Usually, word of mouth places are excellent quality and excellent prices. I got my 2.5 single in/2.25 dual out bent and hung for $200. I reused my existing muffler. 2.5 Single out system, my old setup, I paid $150 to bend and hang it, again using an existing muffler.

Oh the 4.0L OHV, I suggest a Flowmaster Delta Flow 40 muffler. I've heard it in person and it sounds awesome. On a 4.0L SOHC, I like Flowmaster Super 44.




Dual out kits are about $550 including muffler....kit...install in your driveway type of kit like a magnaflow kit. It's cheaper for me to get my own custom setup done to my own wants and needs(nice tight hidden away from stuff system).

so when you had your deal done for 200 bucks, did you end up with two exhaust pipes or what?

Yeah. Like I said, exhaust shop prices vary wildly. Shop around.

Not with this setup...hit up youtube. FYI: online sound clips suck. Nothing beats personal experience and hearing in real life.

I have a Thrush Welded on my truck, it sounds a lot like the Flowmaster 40. Its pretty quiet until you get on it, then it has a nice deep tone. The welded is made of 12 gauge and fully welded, they will last forever.

Hey FX4Wannabe01, how does the Flowmaster super 44 sound on the 4.0L OHV? I have aheard many people say that they love the super 44 and was just wondering if any or all of them were SOHC or OHV? Thanks

BigDan

Ive got a Magnaflow 3 chamber with a dump in front of the back wheel, and I think it sounds good. quiet at idle with a nice deep tone while driving under 2500. put your foot down and it wakes up and starts talking to ya. Has a nice full sound. With the muffler, two tips, pipe and labor, it was right at $190.

Here are some pics if you are interested.
