I woud think opening up such a small motor with duals would sacrafice a lot of low end torque

yea, thats true. i like my low end torque. im gonna go with just the flowmaster super 40 with 2.25" tubing and maybe a 3 inch pipe. along with the whole exhaust system.

sound good everyone???

My gibson actually gave it more tourque..Its not too loud either...The pipes arnt as big as the super 40's... but it sure gave my truck an *** load of power that it didnt have before

well, i do have a V6 4.0 so i dont think i would lose much power, if any. but i dont wanna risk it and lose money in the process if it does end up taking torque away.

I have a 67 mustang with a 302 v8 wih full length headers 650cfm carb and i wont even run over 2.5 exhaust.

Open exhaust will give you more top end but s****y low end

nah, i know someone who has a super 44 and he says the super 40s sound better on the ranger. he has tried a lot of different stuff and his favorite by far is the super 40. im just gonna do that for now, if sometime down the road i want duals and wanna risk power loss turning a super 40 into a dual....then maybe i will go dual. lol but for now, im stickin with the original plan. thanks for the advice tho

hmm 40 series flowmasters on anything other than muscle v8 to me is a waste no offence its your truck and its best too tune it the way you want. 6 bangers just never have the same sound as an 8 no matter the size 6

yea, i know what you mean.
i have heard them on a V6 ranger and i like the sound and sound level it puts out. im not lookin for extremely loud muscle car stuff, just a nice low aggressive rumble. and thats what is drawing me toward the super 40 on my ranger.
