No, it won't work as far as I know, there was a change in 1998 in the 4.0l manifolds

An exhaust shop should be able to install pipes in place of the Cats............as long as Cats are removed and you just bring them the "Y" and ends with length needed between them, i.e. the length of removed Cats
And its for Off-road use only of course

Exhaust shops can get $25,000 fines for removing Cats and not reinstalling new Cats
But they can repair exhaust pipes that have no Cats, i.e. custom exhaust systems

Hmmm. I wonder what could be different. Perhaps somebody who has experience in the aforementioned subject can answer. I mean, the block width is the same…

Same engine, 1990-2000, the 4.0l OHV, VIN X, the 3.0l OHV "Y" of same year were the same
The head exhaust ports and exhaust manifolds were resigned for 1998 to get faster Cat warm ups

There are no longer "Ford" parts available just 3rd party, so if the non-Cat Y fit 2000 Ranger 4.0 the seller WOULD certainly include that, they are not trying to limit sales, lol

This one with Cats is $175: https://www.ebay.com/itm/184773532054?hash=item2b055c5996:g:YL0AAOSwnNFgBbNj&fits=Year:2000|Model:Ranger|Make:Ford
These would NOT work for Calif vehicle, no stickers, just for others that may read this down the road

Working Cats can not effect performance only broken ones can
You will also have the issue if rear O2 sensor always setting a code if you delete the Cats, just a heads up

I am prepared to deal with codes and lights. My 94 and my 95 F150s throw codes for no cats. My 02 F150 (4.2) had an emissions delete too. All vehicles' were clean and not discolored. I guess I will order some parts and post back about my success or failure with the 4oh...
