I have a 89 ranger that I put a 5.0 HO in. I have not ran the exhaust yet it is just headers as off right now. I finished up all the wiring and am ready to run the exhaust. I am not sure of how I want to run it yet I was thinking dual 2.25 inch exhaust putting a high flow round cat. in each pipe then either going into a 2 in 2out muffler or running 2 mufflers and 2 tail pipes. My big thing is I have been trying to find some pics of what other people have done to see what works and what doesnt work so I know what to order as far as cats and muffles go. I am either going to be exiting the truck behind the tires on 45 degree angels or dumping at the rear. I am not sure yet let me know what some of yous have done for your exhaust set up. I am trying to get away from running a y-pipe.

on the 84 302 ranger i had its true duals right out to the back, the left side piping is just run around the gas tank. Also mine has bullet mufflers on it, the one being longer to equalize the pressure on both sides, sounds amazing
