Save your energy. You'll thank yourself later. fddriver02 made a very valid point. Absolutely no point in making it louder if it isn't fast to begin with. Mustangs, Cobras, Camaros, Firebirds, Corvettes, Chevelles, etc., etc............cars that make gobs of power that are capable of more when freeing up exhaust flow is reason to do this. I consider myself a good judge of character and a person's tastes when it comes to this sort of thing. I've been around musclecars almost 20 years to know what is and what isn't tasteful. If I heard your truck in traffic (the way you intend to make it sound) I'd think you're a wanna-be/poser/ricer and that you have poor taste. If you're not impressing me I can guarantee you're not impressing anyone else. That's just my two cents and again, not meant to be taken the wrong way.

And i'm with you on that one, all these people who are putting the idea down are making me realize i can save less than $100 and get myself a flow master haha.

thats what ill be doing :D

Good point......

I have a supercharged mustang with Bassani x and full catback that is quite loud. I bought the Ranger so I could go to the grocery store in relative peace and quiet!
