Anyone have a 2.3L with a magnaflow?

I was wondering if anyone has a 2.3L Ranger/B2300 with a magnaflow muffler or any other muffler on it. How does it sound (import or more low/powerful)? I had a Magnaflow muffler given to me...do you think I should put it on my 1995 Mazda B2300?

Well it looks like a universal oval Magnaflow muffler for cars and trucks. It has a 2 1/4 fittings and it chrome...I don't think it's a specific kind like a 40 series or 50 series etc...that's why I am wondering if I should put it on...I don't want my truck to sound like a Honda Civic hahaha

Yes I am planning on just replacing my current muffler with this Magnaflow muffler...I might get a high flow cat later but I'll see after I get this installed.

Allright I guess I'll put it on... I could always go back to stock if I really want haha....

oh yeah...where do you think it would look best to have the exhaust exiting? where it is currently or somewhere else? (My truck is similar to yours Zach, except it is a single cab and a bit older. I have 15" chrome rims, 235/75/R15 Hankook Mud and snow tires...so it's not a lowrider.)
