There has to be a car parked next to it that is making all that noise. There is just no way.

you might could get close to that sound on a 4.0 with a catback system and flowmaster 10 series with some engine mods,not sure what mods the 3.slow would need to get close to it

dude i do this all the time. just disconnect your exhaust when your trucks been cold for a while and drop it past the flange near the passenger door. waalaa you have a fake cam. its sounds like s**t when you hit the taps but at idle youre a stroker sleeper lol

ok, once again, that isnt a cammed out 3L, unless the video lies (and its a four) then no one in their right mind would cam a 3L ranger, sorry to burst your bubble. he simply played around with his exhaust and disconnected an air reading sensor on the intake and 1. you have loud rumble 2. you have choppy stroker sound due to cold engine and offset mixture and crap running

You want that "muscle car" sound in your 3.0 truck? Why? It isn't a muscle car. Your truck barely gets out of its own way but you want it to sound like something fast? You would be taking a low revving engine that doesn't make any power down low and then have it make even less down low and increase the point that it makes power at just so it can sound different so you can feel cool? Retarded.

I "camed out" a Vw? Does that make me stupid for not buying a better car? I dunno, $50 over $5000. Yeah... Your right. That was totally a dumb move. Should've blown all my money.

I hope you're not around here anymore for another members 3.0 build since you've made him dislike you in another thread a few weeks ago
my truck totaled is worth more than yours so I really don't care. I'm getting a GTO next year anyway and last i checked my truck was in 1 piece nothing fell off of it.
