Newly Installed; Flowmaster 40 Series, 4.0L v6, 2.5" Dual Straight's (pics!)

Just picked my truck back up today.. had origionally asked for a drop down behind the wheels.. but my brother dropped the rig off yesterday for me and mistakenly told the guy for a straight back. Needless to say, i was surprised.. but he told me if I didn't like the straight back, I can drop it off and he will re-do the end piping and give me the drop downs behind the wheels.

To be honest, down a drop down wouldn't give you the tone I'm getting right now, and it is fantastic.. i could go do a short movie right now, but its fricken cold out, and dark.. and i would rather wait until tomorrow to do that anyway :-) Needless to say, here are a few pictures. Dont mind the high polish chrome vs. my muddy look.. I didn't have a chance to clean my truck up before bringing it into the shop, so until its cleaned it almost looks out of place.


Stay tuned in for later tomorrow when I make the video and show ya just what I mean by a hell of a nice 4.0L V6 engine roar It's sexy.


Final Price: $344 (309 on goods and work, the extra bit was taxes)

looks good mike. I do believe ill be doing my duals with the same shop you went to. I don't think i've ever seen duals where the top out goes to the passenger side, and the bottom out goes to the driver side. Looks good mike...can't wait to hear it.

yeah, biggest thing with mandrel bends.. you dont need em on our rangers. Maybe if your pushing another 100+ horsepower and using aftermarket headers.. then you coudl justify the price of getting it put on

Yep, thats why I like my one guy who does it locally. Plus he doesn't use clamp hangers. I like the clean looks...

That isn't mandrel bent either. The bends on mike's exhaust are what I call "crinkle" bends.....the one on your exhaust is what I call "smoosh" bends. You see how the roundness of the pipe, turns oval? The bender puts a egg shape to the pipe at the bends. Mandrel bends are consistant roundness of the pipe, w/o crinkles, w/o disortion. Has the same diameter & roundness the entire bend. it's sleeeeek....and quite expensive.

I know what your saying, I just don't like that type of bend as far as looks. Just personal prefrence thats all. Congrats on the new exhaust though, sounds good. In the pic I posted I had straights but im now running a si/do super 44.

My old setup was that way.

Looks good, but the tips look kinda small.

haha, you noticed! :-D

Actually, about a day after I recorded this, I pulled off the single mud flap.. and whenever I get time, Ive got 2 new ones sitting in the cab of my truck.. Ugh, I need to record a new exhaust note on this.. its been so darn busy lately!


Purhcasing a new crossbed black diamond plate single lid style box for my own eearly christmas present.. so I've been all over trying to find a good place for that. GI Joes is promising, I would almost rather hav eone custom made to fit perfectly.. nice and deep, looking for at least a 19" depth :-p



Anyways, off to work I go!

Oh hey, its snowing out here.. and I did an impossible thing.. i went snow 4x4ing "snowing" if you will, and went up this spot under the powerline access roads that Ive never seen anyone even try.. I limited out my 4x high to where the engine wouldnt even move the tires.. had to back up a bit and flip it into 4 low to even finish crawling up it. I'll try getting some pictures in tommorow when its full daylight :-) Perhaps drag my brothe ralong and have him suffer out in teh cold recording it on my camera
