Flo-Pro

I have you guys heard of a exhaust called Flo-Pro. My cousin had one on his 00-01 mustang v6 and it sounded like a million bucks.

As far as a mustang v6 and our trucks (4.0L) are the engines the same
(# of cats). Bascially what I am trying to say is will the same exhaust sound the same on the different vehicles?

I have heard of them, from what I understand they rust easy. The motors are NOT the same in his mustang and our trucks. The mustang is a pushrod motor and the ranger is over head cam.

I had a set on a Crown vic. After a few years in the michigan salt they were holding up pretty good. Sounded good too IMO.

Isnt the new Mustang 4L and the New Ranger 4L the same engine (tuned differently of course) but they are both SOHC's right? or am I wrong.

I have *heard* they sound better than Flowmasters on Ford products. The interior design of the muffler itself resembles the 40 original series quite a bit other than the last chamber.

I'd like to give this muffler a try but i just changed my exhaust a few weeks back

Key word is new mustang, and yes the share the 4.0 sohc.

The older stang such as the 00 or 01 use a 3.8. Totally different engine.

What about the firing order/timing/exhaust manifolds?

Comparing apples to apples, they dont even sound alike with exhaust.

Yeah i just assumed they are different or had different internals since the throttle response/engine and exhaust note is completely different.
