Looking for exhaust!

Im looking for a good muffler for my 89 2.3L Ranger, I dont want it to sound like a bumble bee either! I just want somthing that sounds decent and doesnt cost to much! I had Dynomax on my last Ranger and wasnt very impressed with it! Any suggestions?

Well your going to have to get over that it sounds like a bumble bee it is a 4 cylinder. But, on the other hand some will give you a deeper buzzing noise haha. I have a pro sound its based off the Flowmaster 40 series but its alot cheaper. I have mine dumped before the rear axle its pretty loud when i get into it but not to bad when im cruising. Mine was 85 dollars installed at the local muffler shop.

Heres a clip of some dudes flowmaster 40 thats dumped out the side:

Ya but dont get to big of tips cause then it will look ridiculous on the truck. Just dump it underneath and call it good.

Best exhaust for a 4 cylinder is.......Stock exhaust. When i had my 2.3 i was thinking on an exhaust, but then I thought again and knew it would be a bad idea. its a 4 cylinder. There is a an exception, Zachs old 2.3.. (or Redneckstone). But in all due respect, i think it would be a costly mistake.
