But deleting too much back pressure can cause a drop in torque and for 230 bucks I would rather just buy a flowmaster and dump it for less than half the price. Resonator tips look too ricey for me.

Yes with that kit you will lose lots of torque but will gain horsepower in the mid to upper RPM. I have a system that is almost like that. I replaced the muffler with a cherry bomb glasspack and made dual pipes come out just like that kit. YES it does sound like rice. I wish I would have left my exhaust stock or put a dynomax muffler.

I've got that kit installed on my Ranger. I've had it for roughly 4-5 years now.

I didn't really notice a loss in torque, although it was a while back that it was installed. The sound is really nice too, kind of throaty with a low rumble at idle. It is loud when you get on it, but not too loud if you don't rev it......best of both worlds. I have gotten complaintments for it quite a few times.

I'm kind of used to the sound now so I'm looking for something louder......I'm looking into a dumped flowmaster 40.

I was looking into buying this exhaust but was wondering on how it sounded does it have a deep loud tone or a high pitched rice burner sound anyone have any suggestions on a good sounding cat back system I'm looking for a more deeper tone
