Reasons Why Your Ford Ranger Needs an Exhaust Upgrade

Your Rangers OEM exhaust system sure is well tuned to appeal to the vehicle’s needs but the restrictions it has can actually affect its performance negatively. You see OEM parts do the job just fine but the number of limitations they have, actually make your Ranger spend more fuel and expel gasses at a way slower rate than an aftermarket system. What an aftermarket upgrade can do for your vehicle’s performance will leave you flabbergasted at the results. Not only does it show your vehicles true colours, but it also enhances its performance by a significant amount. Here are the game-changing benefits of an exhaust upgrade.


We all know how important is vehicle performance and the way to it is through its lungs a.k.a the exhaust system. Now I know an aftermarket part of this sort won’t have the same results as a turbocharger but you will get more power without eliminating back pressure. Since a Ford Ranger exhaust upgrade won’t restrict the flow of the gasses being expelled, it will allow the engine to sort of “breathe” in more air thus adding in several horsepowers.

Better Fuel Economy

Since the power of the engine is increased, fuel economy goes hand in hand with it as your Ranger’s torque is going to get better as well. This means that your vehicle won’t have to struggle as much in order to climb up steep roads. In case the car needs more fuel the oxygen sensor that newer systems have, will make sure it is provided which again doesn’t stress the engine.


Now, this may not be a big deal for some of you, but that fine gruntling noise that you can get from a Ford Ranger exhaust upgrade makes car enthusiasts like myself go crazy – in a good way though. I am not talking about a loud disturbing “attention seeker” type of sound, what I mean is a sound that is somewhat louder than your standard system but has a deeper “groan” to it.


With an aftermarket upgrade, you have some options when it comes to the materials being used. For example, a stock system uses mild steel for the construction, which isn’t bad but it isn’t nearly as durable when compared to the materials that aftermarket systems use. On the other hand, you have the choice of either aluminised steel or stainless steel – the former is a good starting point making the whole system lightweight but yet stronger than mild steel. Stainless steel though is the best option here as it is obviously stronger than aluminised steel and it doesn’t corrode what so ever.
