I don't think they make one but on your Ranger you will not gain any power. As a matter of fact you might lose power. An engine needs back pressure from the cats to help suck out the exhaust from the cylinders. Also you will get a CEL all day.

Then your going to have to go with a custom setup. Try and look for a shop that does mandrel bends unless you don't mind crush bends.

Catless Y pipe for a 4.0L SOHC ranger....thinkin' about that Y pipe for mine.

http://www.zabteck.com/randomtech.htm



And....single cat rear cat pipe....



Btw.....an H pipe wouldn't really work for a ranger, it ain't a true dual set up, unless all is custom like Beard's.

WOW. Someone actually makes a y-pipe for the Ranger. Well Sport Trac but same thing. Too bad that would fail a visual smog inspection in CA or I would get one.

i had this on my list to do- get a small run of each (3.0 and 4.0) off road y-pipes made. They would be in the price range of the random technology y-pipe. The problem is getting a stock y-pipe to send in. I hacked my 4.0 when I did a tranny swap, the 3.0's I can't let sit for a few weeks.

if someone is serious about these, and could send me a stock y-pipe, they would get a free off road y-pipe out of the deal. I would need the stock y-pipe for several weeks.

PM me if interested. I should have done this a year ago.

Let me get through the weekend and I can do without mine for a few weeks. Would I get the stocker back as well?
PM me and we can talk some more about it if you want.
BTW I have an 07' 4L Sport

Right now I'm looking at 4.0 SOHC and 3.0 y-pipes. I have what looks like a done deal on the 4.0. His truck is parked until September. If it doesn't work I'll I'll make contact with the others.

Andrew, some of the JBA headers for 4.0 OHV Rangers come with a y-pipe already.

Wayne, may as well add me to the list....

I'd be interested in doing something other than this restriction BS I have going on from the factory

I may have to take a trip to Western Auto Recyclers and pull the stock Y pipe off the one I got my window off of... if it's still there. What, spend $20 on an experiment?

chuck, hopefully they have one. the cats have value to them. i would suspect that the recycling yard removes them from the get go to sell them off for the platinum.

I'm kind of kicking myself. I had a y-pipe (3.0) clog up on me. I set it aside for this purpose (make an offroad y-pipe). i either threw it away or someone stole it.
