That ain't how they do it in racin', son. Finding the sweet spot on the pipe is a science and an art.
On a turbo motor, if you are brave enough, run both sides of the turbo wide open to atmosphere, full air in, full air out. No restrictions. They need to breath!

The not enough cylinders to sound good debate is an old one. And it shows that people don’t understand how an exhaust system produces sound. A well built, properly flowing exhaust can sound great regardless if it’s a 3,4,6,8,10cyl.
Absolutely, but having knowledge about a topic doesn't change ones preference. I am an "expert" in music theory but I still hate the Beatles because the way something sounds will not change regardless of how much you know about the sounds creation.

Well, maybe I'll try it naked and see how I like it. Seems LESS likely to burn anything, it's the cat converters that did that....and I don't hunt DEER from my Bronco! Prairie dogs, yes....and now wondering how they'll like cyber orange? lol

I think they will love Cyber Orange! Probably run to it!

Its hard to make a V6 sound good, but many have tried and will continue to do so. Some think what they do sounds good, and that works for them. I will leave exhaust stock, but might take muffler off and paint it black.
Nothing will beat the sound I got out of a RX-7 Rotary engine with straight exhausts all the way back! Sounded like a bad ass lawn mower!

Whoa! Wait! $1000? Uh, no. Thx.
At $1k I'd jump all over it compared to what I paid for the exhaust on my bike. I'm waiting for the Borla system for the Bronco though. And for someone else's the comment about only a 93 5.0 - my 86 5.0 and 2 chamber FlowMasters would like a word... :cool:

The other big issue with getting good sound (depending on what you mean by "good") is displacement. This little baby 2.7 is not going to produce a big block/headers muscle car rumble no matter what you do. And with an automatic, you're not going to sound like a 60 european roadster either. This muffler mod begs the question... why???? You might as well strap a fart can on it and go hang out with the wannabe fast & furious kids in the parking lot who like to argue about what V-Tec is and how awesome the cold air intake is - while vaping. Or... you could get V8 with a clutch and stop playing make believe. LOL!

not something I'd spend $ on, but curious to see how it sounds once you're done with the install. Maybe also make a cabin noise comparison video, stock and with the new stuff installed.
And some photos from underneath and the sides, see if clearance is impacted. Nice looking set from the photos.

I have no affiliation but @Stage 3 Motorsports posted this exhaust awhile back. I reached out to them privately as they suggested in their post, and they do knock a decent amount off that price . These "friends of the forum" sponsors really take care of us if you take the time to reach out to them and ask. I'll probably end up purchasing this from them, but very excited to hear it on the OP's Bronco.

Sure. But stating ones opinion as fact is what I take issue with. Especially when someone’s statement shows they don’t know what their talking about.
We can agree that the Beatles suck

Honestly I like the sound from MagnaFlow's website... it's not that loud but it has a nice tone, IMO.

Haha. I think he was just stating something based on preference. I don't think I have ever heard a V6 thats sounds good with an aftermarket exhaust. Some may think its sounds good, which is fine.

Same goes for V10s.

The only car that has any business with an aftermarket exhaust is a 93 5.0 mustang.

Not a lack of knowledge but simply an opinion based on experiences. As for law? No way. You can't legislate people out of bad taste. They have the right to it.
The V10 LFA is by far one of the best sounding cars ever made. The V6 Alfa Romeos sound fantastic. The Fiat 124 Abarth sounds great with the Record Monza exhaust.

Saying a ‘93 Mustang is the only car that should have an aftermarket exhaust is about as generic as going to an Italian restaurant and ordering spaghetti and marinara sauce. Has about as much character as well.
