10 series?

Anybody running flowmaster's 10 series on a 4.0 SOHC? I'm running a Super 44 and was wondering how much louder this thing is. Thanks.

10 series are crazy loud and as far as I know, not street legal.

10 series is a single chamber muffler.... basically, the truck'll be straight piped and will be hella obknoxious. If you want an idea of how it'll be, unbolt your tailpipe from your cat-pipe. This'll be louder than the tailpipe and 10 series, but it'll give you a very good idea of how it'll sound.

Say no. Stay Super 44.

none of these guys are speaking from experience. DO IT like i said, its the muffler that will actually give your truck sound, not just some deep tone.

THEY ARE STREET LEGAL, THEY ARE NOT TOO LOUD. Plus there is hardly any drone at all.

Ive had at least 5 Ranger guys come up and say my truck sounds amazing and then ask what exhaust i run so they can copy it.


but hey what do i know....i only have it on my truck.

DSGMike makes me chuckle. He doesn't know about my 6 or 7 different exhaust setups over the past 6 years. I've got a pretty damn good idea what it'll be like because I've had it straight piped with tailpipes and I'm well aware to what a 10 series is out there for: lower decibles on drag cars/race cars.


But hey, I've grown way past this obknoxiously loud and annoying raspy exhausts, maybe you've and the OP hasn't. By all means, I'm just speaking my mind from past experiences. And hell......it's all opinionated, everyone here.

See all Im saying is that everyone is complaining that it will be too loud, and i can tell you for damn sure that its not really that loud. Ive heard Rangers with a **** load of different exhaust set ups, and ill admit the 10 series is about the loudest, but its by no means loud.

For me i went with the 10 series because I didnt want my Ranger just to have a deep tone, hell every Ranger sounds about the same, I wanted something different.

Hehe I knew mike would post.

I've never heard a straight piped 4.0, so I'm curious as to how this thing will sound.

Thanks Shane. Havnt you used them exhaust clamp things as an alternative to welding the muffler on?
How well do they hold up?

I have used them before and had exhaust leaks. So I ended up having to weld it up anyway.

I just had the flowmaster 40 series put on my truck last week. I love it it has a nice deep tone that is pretty loud when you want it to be but when your rollin down the road its quiet with no drone in the cab.Plus to me it has the perfect balance of engine and exhaust noise when you step on the throttle.

I used the stainless lap-joint clamps from dynomax I believe. After the 4th muffler, one of them finally started to have a slight leak. Exhaust tubing "sweats" and they seal themselves overtime. The leak was barely noticeable. But I too ended up welding throughout when I was finally happy with a muffler and redid the system.
