Not yet my friend. I'm having a crisis with my desktop cpu. It looks like I may have to get a new home computer. Plus the Cherrybomb Glasspack that I have sounds good but due to the last engine install courtesy of the Ford dealer that I went to, that muffler will be gone and NOT a single replacement will be installed in it's place. For some reason either the exhaust system needs to be redone or they installed the motor a little off center causing the exhaust to hit the damn driveshaft.

I personally enjoy my dynomax cat-back exhaust. Came with complete setup, including tip out of stock position. Good rumble, but not to loud. Plus super cheap for cat-back, only paid $144 for mine shipped to my house. Its a bolt on, so i put it on one night in my drive way, only took about 2-3 hours.

Nice thing about Flowmasters... Other than having one of the best true rumble sounds you can find them cheap! I got my Super 44 for $65 brand new on Amazon.

Ive been asked as well with a 3.0 in the hood. Ive convinced a few Mustang Cobra guys in my Stang culb to switch to the Super 44's and they now swear by it thats it the best. A stock Cobra almost sounds cammed with dual super 44's since its putting out so much power.

My 2003 was 2.5. It was also offset going in and center coming out. I got the single outlet to a dual tip but i am gonna be getting a dual outlet in the future to have a 2 pipe lighning exhaust instead of just a tip.

Best muffler that sounds nice with a roar to it, and yes it does sound much like a V8 at idle, as well as take off, it don't get no where close to being ricey, is the thrust welded. I've had one on my truck for sometime now. I've had a State Trooper approach me at a gas station, and ask if I had a V8 under the hood that ranger... and I toldem nope.

lots of people do that and it sounds good. I just put an angle on a long pipe and brought it lightning style. that little big of extra pipe helps the sound some.

I had the same thing happen to me when I had that Terminator Muffler by Flowtech. I had to raise the hood and prove it to him because he didn't belive me either.

Wow, you guys know your stuff. I had no idea about the size of the pipe also making a difference. For certain, no glass pack,.. Not wanting to sound like a little honda going down the road. Seems the overwhelming response leads to a weld on magnaflow, so i'll put my faith in you, as always, and go ahead with it. I'm waiting for some nice weather to get started, so i'll order it up.
Thanks again guys. You come thru as always.
