I find the OHV 4.0 is easier to find a muff that sounds like i want it to sound compared to the SOHC 4.0...SOHC 4.0 is more picky.

I'm thinking of this for my 2002 Edge. Heartthrob Exhaust 2-1/4" Muffler-Back Dual Exhaust Kit
Dual exhaust's have always been the look for me. I also want a distinctive sound so the dog knows I'm coming home.

THanks for the help.

how do you like it dumped??
the $300 didn't include the tips though. i bought those later from him. they are stainless and he charged me $30 each for them.

i love it dumped. i think it sounds awesome. it makes it quite loud inside the cab but personally i like it.

I just got back from having a Flowmaster 40 series installed. Other than the muffler, my exhaust is completely stock. And the truck still sounds stock.

That sucks.

Thinking I need to just dump it. I didn't spend that money to have it sound the same.

no worries...it's on topic.


I've ran both and am currently running a Super 44. And well, Super40 and Super44 are so similar in sound, it's hard to tell which is louder. The 44 is deeper than the super40, and I think the 44 is better sounding all around than the Super 40, but again, they are very close in comparison between how both sound. Then again, there are so many variables to it....muffler distance from the engine, tailpipe lengths, number of bends, type of tips, size of tips, size of tubing, dual or single.... just saying there's plenty of variables.

I know this for sure: Dumped for dumped, the super44 is louder than the super40 if both are dumped and on a 4.0L SOHC.

Another thing i do know, is that a Delta Flow 40 is louder than a Super 40 on a 4.0L OHV.

I've grown old of having dumped exhaust. Starting to get annoyingish. Pretty much any performance muffler on a v6 at high rpm's will sound 'rice'. No way of getting around that.....espicially if it's dumped.

To finally answer your question: it's sounds good, but riceish at high rpms.





Something for ALL to keep in mind...theres THREE different 40 series flowmasters: Original 40, Delta Flow 40, and the Super 40. And a Super 44 is a variation of a 40 series as well, but in a smaller case.
