newbie with exhaust questions
hi all, names steve and im new here but have had my ranger for 3.5 years now its a 2000 v6 4.0 with 4x4 finally just got all the mechanical stuff fixed from a roll over 2 years ago.
now i want to redo the exhaust, everything is still stock except i put a K&N in it. i mainly want to do this to help boost my MPG's, get some extra power and torque out of it and help the engine run smoother so i can get another 100K or so out of her.
i know pretty much nothing about exhausts, but i am thinking about putting a set of headers on it and either doing a complete cat-back system or just switching in an aftermarket muffler if thats possible
so as a rookie i guess im asking if you were to drop in a set of headers and redo your exhaust what would you do. im hoping to keep the price of the headers under 300 and keep the overall cost under 800 or so
