My Exhaust...

hey guys..
Cut off my 5th cat and welded 2.5 inch pipe right after the last O^2 sensor.(no Check engine light)
That 2.5 inch pipe was then welded to my brothers old Aftermarket Cobra Muffler (2.5 inch)

It sounds like stock to me. Did you notice any lose in performance, 2.5 is a little big for 3.0, you probably lost some backpressure.

Like stock? no way dude.. haha.Stock was so so so restrictive... it seems to run the same.. no change.. if any it will help. a single 2.5 inch exhaust should be damn near perfect for it. i also have 3 inch intake. its not like true 2.5 dual or anything outrageous. it breathes very well. I dont think my truck is fast by any means what so ever. its slow. but for what it is ( a ranger with 150 hp)... it does pretty well.

Well since back pressure does nothing...


2.5" pipe is what every aftermarket cat back kit that I have seen uses.

There are no oxygen sensors after this converter so how would the obd2 know?

look at a new SD, 150 or Duramax driveshaft it comes from the factory rusted... my ranger still has that new aluminum look, I dont polish it or anything... and my mechanics think Ive got some aftermarket driveshaft.

Id rock that exhaust if I was boosted or making some big numbers, just to hide the sound some.... I just like loud noises better in my opinion

My Driveshaft has 0 rust.

It feels aluminum, though. But I dont think it is. Galvanized, maybe?

Probably aluminum then.

It wasn't very heavy.
