Or 4 Banger?

Welcome to FRF!

The short answer is no, a 2004 2.3L is an inline 4
3.0L and 4.0L engines are V6s

The 4 Cylinder Tech or the Exhaust and Mufflers sections should have more specific info and more in-depth discussions on the subject.

usually when someone says "x banger" they are referring to a motor...like i could say i have a 4 banger, as could you. though we both have 5speeds.

I was thinking of headers when I originally replied. I'm not sure if cat-back exhausts are interchangeable between the engines. I don't have my shop manual handy to check eitherů

Yes. Actually, any exhaust will fit from cat back. Length between ext cab and reg is the only difference
