I'm wanting to do something similar to that. Looks good.

Are you still rocking the factory muffler?

I have had all three on differing cars/trucks. On my 4.0L ranger I have the SS SIDO magnaflow and like it very much. I like it even more now that I have custom tailpipes that come out behind the rear tires. It's mellow and no longer drones at hwy speed.

rich that looks good, but what is the first part of the last paragraph. i have been wondering about this as well. my biggest thing is that i don't want it super loud when cruising down the road, but when i get on it i want some bark. a saying comes to mind, something about cake and eating....

The have some ricer tips at Autozone that look similar to those for $25. I might go that route, but I kinda want to get one of those sexy Borla dual tips. I just don't know about forking over $100 for a tip.

IMO, a bodylifted truck and lightning style exhaust = no bueno aka goofy....



I'll get you a new vid this weekend matt....but it won't be the best, as my exhaust decided to make a corrosion hole at the rear hanger before the muff. it's raspy with an exhaust leak. lol.

Hey matt...again...lol....

after 5 different mufflers on my truck...i'm happiest with the Super44 with larger inlet pipe(2.5). A super close second was the Super40. All these on the SOHC 4.0L. There's quite a big difference between the OHV and the SOHC 4.0's in regards to aftermarket mufflers. I'm all about having a deep loud sound that sounds good. Super44 has that. My truck is rocking a stock Ypipe with 2 cats, and stock rear cat pipe with 2 cats, into 2.5" header pipe in to the muff, the muff, and turndowns. no tailpipes.

Magnaflow single exit catback. This was the first week that I had it. It's deeper and louder now.

I think I have found my exhaust, best vid I've found so far. This is a Flowmaster original 40 si/do w/ cat delete. It sounds awesome!! I can only imagine what it would sound like with the super 40 or 44.

I like my Cherry Bomb glass pack, but that's just me, LOL!

Then again, I won't ever waste money on a super nice exhaust for a V6. There's just no comparison to a V8.

Very quiet, not tin canny at all, to me. Sounds bubbly. I like it.

Cruise speeds were fantastic. I was at about 75 MPH for 500 miles, and it was perfect.

For $34.99, it was a better choice, IMO.

I like it. Then again, my stock exhaust was horrid.

Yes. But then again, I normally have my music turned up to about mid level, and I also have a lot of hearing loss, so....LOL!
