Exaust!!!!

Well i got my tires the other day and ended up getting 235/75/15 BFGoodrich M/T's and i love them they go through mud without a problem and clean out with no problem, but i digress i am now getting ready to put exaust system on and my dilemmas are what brand to go with i want good loud sound and good perfomance and if anybody has the horsepower gains it would be appreciated. I am very strongly looking at the magna flow dual catback system but i am open for suggestions also i wanted in that ceramic (or whatever its calleed) black but will there be any type of strength integrity issues or anything of that nature?

Today I had my Magnaflow cat-back put on and I love the way it sounds
but I have the kit that goes in the stock location it is not to loud and not to
quite. I am very happy I did the Magnaflow cat-back

If you want performance then go w/ magnaflow, If you want sound go with the Flownaster original 40 Series, and if you want to pay way too much for an exhuast and get both worlds then go w/ borla.

You'll be lucky to get 1-2 more hp with a performance exhaust, and you won't gain any mpg.

can't you just buy a borla muffler and tips off ebay and spend like 200 bucks tops...then get a muffler shop to bend you some piping and WAh LA! The all-mighty borla system for about 300$? If anyone has done this how much did it come out to in the end?

You can get a bit more HP than that if you've done intake mods as well -- but man those ads really exaggerate it. They must be based on a really big engine, lol.

I'm putting a Flowmaster on just for the sound. I already had a free-er flowing cat-back. Just want more rumble (must be my second childhood, lol).

I have an 01 that I put Flowmasters on about a year ago, I love them Good loud sound and around 20-25 more miles per tank. I did not notice any improvement in performance though. In my opinion Flowmaster is still the way to go!

I loved my Borla system. It sounded fantastic. I believe I paid 65 for the muffler, 55 for the tips, and about $200 for the custom install with y-pipe. I would definitely recomment a Borla muffler to anyone, and there will defiitely be one on my next truck.

hey guys.......wazzz up. Went 2 a muff shop 2day. I wanted to get my xhuast changed from the pipes xiting the back 2 a side xit. 1st ?, why does ford need 4 converters for their xhaust? I was thinking about having them put in a dual 2 1/4" inlet/outlet muffler. I thought instead of the driver side pipe going into the pass side pipe, i would make it true dual. The only catch would be, that they would have to eliminate the last converter, the one after the o2 sensor. Thats were the new muff would go, then the pipes would exit the pass side. 2nd ?, would having true duals make a difference, I'm not looking for huge gains, i'm guessing 2-3 increase in hp. im anticipating what it would sound like. Also wondering if removing that converter, would cause my mpg to decrease or maybe cause any cel to come on? The shops wants $250 but they wanted to install a dynomax...yuuck! I ask them how much If I got my own muff and told me $200. Not bad..ehhhh? Found a magnaflow dual in/out for $80. I currently have a borla x. Sounds awesome but cant find dual in/out from them. Any advise or suggestions would be appreciated.
