Hey everyone, I have a 93 F150 Extended Cab 2wd with the 5.0L and E4OD. Currently it has stock exhaust manifolds, stock Y pipe/cats and 2.25" single exhaust. The system has definitely seen better days and I would like to upgrade it.
I primarily use this truck to run back and forth to work (130 kms round trip, all hwy) and to get lumber, do dump runs etc around the house. 2-3 times a year it gets loaded with 2 quads (1000lbs) and pulls a tent trailer to go camping.
Would I be better off getting some shorty headers, Magnaflow Y-Pipe with the 2 cats and having a single 2.5" exhaust with a Flowmaster/Magnaflow muffler or..
Get long tubes, have a custom y-pipe made, add a single 3-way cat, 2.5" piping again with a Flowmaster/Magnaflow muffler.
I am not really interested in true duals or a single in/dual out muffler. Would rather have a nice flowing single exhaust.
I am just looking for the best combination for my use.
