Q? for exhaust gurus

ok is the area after the factory manifolds where the cats bolt up the same on my truck (2002, 4.0L, AT, ext cab) as what would be on a 1994 4.0L, AT, EXT. CAB?

i"m guessing its a stronger pipe... is the guy local?
if so I'm sure he'd let you test fit it. if not just ask for more pics and go unbolt yours and compare. sorry I'm no guru so I dont know the answer

just get a magnaflow or borla muffler, and run a complete exhaust. i dought you will ever need more flow then what that will give u.

flowmaster sucks. sorry. a strait pipe / cut off u are going to loose way too much power.

that would work, you want sound or just performance? u can get the same performance and a little more sound out of a borla.

ok ill have to check that out... i have decided to ditch the off road pipe idea...

but i might look into getting a new muffler... if what you guys say is right about the flowmaster flowing to much and not making any power...

i do like the sound of it though... but its alittle on the hollow side...

how does the magnaflow and borla sound
