Will do, I'll say running no muffler on a 3.0 sounds awesome at idle and at 2000 rpms but everything else it sucks. It drones horrible on the highway as well.

I think my next muffler will be the magnaflow 5"x8" single inlet dual outlet with some stainless steel tips. Clean look, clean sound. What exact muffler do you run (i assume magnaflow) D. ?

Right now? Just 1 Magnaflo.

Originally I had a Summit muffler, it was a cheap junk thingi for 40$.

I bought a Flowmaster 40series and developed some engine troubles running the bottle. Had the engine re-done at a local dyno shop and did a few runs. The Owner of the shops son bought an 03 ranger with the sohc and a 5speed manual and ran the dyno after doing nothing outside of pulling the air silencer, a K&N drop in filter and a magnaflo muffler. He beat what I had by 10hp and 30lb/ft ( no bottle, just motor. He had like 204hp on the rollers. ). I had a MAC intake and Hedders.. His exhaust allowed the engine to breathe that much better and the scavenging effects helped as well.

So.. I went and bought the same muffler he had.

Either of these will work..

http://www.justmagnaflow.com/cgi-bin...&key=CARS14288

http://www.justmagnaflow.com/cgi-bin...&key=CARS14278

I use model#14278 with the 2.25 inch pipes reduced to dual 2inch pipes. It gained 10lb/ft at the wheels for me.

Everyone speaks of how their little v6 sounds like a v8 with a 40 seried muffler.. BullChit! Put them side by side and the difference is Night and Day. I deal with a lot of v8's on a daily basis. No v6 will sound like a compression having, throaty v8 endless the truck has a serious sound system and a mp3 playing with a recorded exhaust clip from s REAL v8.

Wow, thanks for the information! Now i noticed you run the dual in dual out. Now would that require 2 cats as well? It says 3" in 2 1/4" out. So you have it 3" in, and then had it come out to 2" tail pipes correct? with the 3" inlet pipe(s)? Any pictures of what your set up looks like? I mean my main goal is to have a nice sounding v6. Not try to make it sound like a cammed 'stang ha. Now typically, since my 4.0 has 207hp stock, what would (ball park figure) i get for performance gains?

Also, is there any benefits of runing a di/do muffler on a stock truck? or would going with a single inlet dual outlet be a better choice?

Im pretty sure it would be the same in terms of noise, but I hear the si/so generates more horsepower, dont ask me how.

The quality of sound offered on an internet video and the sound of most PC speakers?!?!?

Not really what things sound like in person.

Yeah I wouldnt trust it. SOme people use camera phones, and even camcorders don't pick up the sound and record it "truthfully". Ever seen someone you knwo in a home video, and you know that their voice sounds a little off. The camcorder won't pick up a deep rumble, etc.
