i would just go with a h-pipe set up if you wanting dual exhaust these motors don't push out enough horses for a true dual set up

get a dual exit cat back system, that way you get the look, a bit better sound and you don't have to worry about back pressure, and what not.

I have magna flow exhausts system on my 2007 ford ranger sport 3.0 v6,bought the truck with them on and has the two stainless steel exhaust tips,it sounds rocking,even idle and when you gun it,when I pull up to the big boys my exhaust sounds louder than theirs,with the windows blacked out they really take notice,.

You can't do "true" Duals on a ranger, the gas tank is in the way on the drivers side. You could do a Si/Do coming out the back to look like a true dual set up.

I had a buddy with a Dodge ram, he was told that by 2 exhaust shops, He found some one to do it, they just run the pipes side by side down the passenger side till they get to the rear axle then split and go there own way, im sure you could do that with a ranger too. how ever even the 4.0L doesn produce enuph exhaust to see any performance gains from it. Your better off to go with a single in duel out muffler like you said.

DONT DO TRUE DUALS. the v-6's in these trucks require a certain amount of back pressure to keep the gas mileage and horsepower up true dual will take to much off and actually hurt your numbers. The best setup for these trucks is SI/DO if u want the dual look i would look at a Flo-Pro muffler they are not too expensive and they are well built. I have heard many different setups and the flo pro sonds the best for the money i only paid $40 for mine in ebay brand new. It gives it a nice deep rumble at lower RPM's but like any muffler it gets kinda droney at higher RPM's dont expect V8 sound with these trucks its just not possible

If your going to run that, just dont waste the money on a muffler that flowmaster will be rusted out in a month..

ok notice you just said Y-PIPE which means you DONT have true duals true duals is splitting the exhaust to one muffler for each bank. So yes u can straight pipe with a Y-pipe without a muffler cause it is essentially the same as a SI/DO muffler.

What do you mean by "true duels"?

I'm not too versed in exhaust stuff... I've currently got a FM 30 i think. It's got one muffler with two outlets. Does that mean a "true duel" has two mufflers with two pipes?


If my setup is a "true duel" according to you, I can take a sound clip, but my Ranger is a 4.0.... might sound diff?

Surprising that I'm saying this... but Downey is right. Most recent vehicles have computers and sensors that determine if the fuel/air ratio is correct and it compensates with minor adjustments.

With or without backpressure, vehicles that have this "feature" would run the same unless the parameters are too far outside what the computers are programed for. Carborated vehicles are the ones that CANNOT be modified without a change in performance.

I love the low rumble that comes from my current setup.... I jsut wish it wasn't rotting out. I've had to bring it to the shop and have them weld some holes shut for me to pass inspection. lol

I'm afraid next year, I'll HAVE to replace it. :(

Yeah the computer will compensate but a major sensor the O2 sensor is located before and after the cat so if u had a true duel setup the sensors would be off because the computer reads each bank seperately then reaads the total output from both going through the cat so it may be okay for a while but eventually the computer will "catch on" and you will get a CEL due to conflicting inputs. which it will assume to be a sensor failure.
