ive heard some rangers with just a good muffler (flowmaster or something like that) and they sound really good.

a cam is a good bit of work. you need lifters to match it. and it still wont have a great sound without a good muffler and exhaust system

If you are rebuilding your engine, and want to Bling the truck to sound like something you saw on TV, go the whole route,,cam ..lifters, 3 angle valve seats..nice injectors, good fuel pump with adjustable pressure..a nice header system with a good SS exhaust system..nice..It will only set you back about $7500..but it will make you happy..if done properly, your fuel mileage would only drop about 20% or so..and ot will sound different..just like TV..:-)
