There is a noticeable performance gain by muffler choice on a stock Ranger?

Please, enlighten me . . .

flow masters aren't exactly known for increasing performance.

On a stock 2.3/3.0/4.0 the difference from a stock muffler to a Cherrybomb Glasspack, or the lowest back pressure glasspack would be slim to none. Those dyno results are more than likely on a 4.0L+ V8 making well over the 150hp OP's truck makes. The stock muffler on a stock Ranger motor would at MOST restrict 10hp, realistically about 3hp, which would be hardly noticable. The bottom end torque he would loose with such a small CID motor wouldn't be worth the couple ponies and headaches he gives himself and everyone within 2 miles.

well funny funny.. but to help you ill elaborate a little. If you throw on a flowmaster onto a ranger and dyno it the results will be lower gains than if you had used a borla or a magnaflo does this make more sense, my english teacher =]

Did you not comprehend what I replied?

On a stock Ranger the difference between stock, Flowmaster, Borla or "magnaflo", hell even straight piped would be so minimal you wouldn't notice it. You'd need a dyno just to prove you gained anything, if it be that one or two HP.

And alll i was saying is that all of them the top performing was magnaflow or borla.

So i think we are saying the same things in a different way. i didnt say its great notice ability, i would tell you in mpg with a better air flow setup you can notice it but maybe thats me.

It's the same as mandrel bends and crush bends. In the end I would spend the money on quality mandrel bends and flow through mufflers. Do it right the first time.

BEST thing to do to make it louder is cut everything off post exhaust manifold.
