Finally can get exhaust :) but whats best???

Hey I got some grad. money so now I wanna do some more stuff to the ranger. I want a good sounding exhaust that sounds like V6s and add a lil HP to the 2.3L. What do yall think of the Borla's??? anyone have the ProXS??? or I'll go with flow 40 series

That was the best price around here. to remove the old stuff, for the muffler, new pipes all the way back and the 3" tips. I called all over the place for a cheaper price, but that was the best.

Get the muffler yourself and most of the time it'll save you some money. I get my flowmasters off of ebay for around $45 shipped- Exhaust shops usually charge you upwards of $65.

If they are coming out at a 45* angle, DONT get large tips. It will look funny, trust me.

If i had mine at a 45* angle, i'd get some 3 x 12 tips.
