I thought I'd revive this thread with a nice little surprise I got right before me and my brother left the school:

Daily driver? - Page 4 20170510

There's a rear exhaust piece from an Equinox of the same year as mine at work. The has muffler rotted off of the one at work, but from the flange back to where the muffler clamps on is still in good shape so I shouldn't have to buy a new one. I definitely got some odd looks on the way home! Hahaha!

Hehehe... that reminds me when I had the exhaust 75% removed from my jeep. Sounded like some big diesel loader goin down the road.
With no O2 sensor hooked up it burnt a quarter tank in less than 50 miles... but it sounded good... Daily driver? - Page 4 1098998679 Daily driver? - Page 4 1098998679

When I did the middle resonator delete thats where I cut the pipe on my impala. I fired it up for fun and thought it sounded great. No complaints with the glass pack though. Mom might be getting me a retuned PCM for my birthday. @TheGreenHornet and I will do a before and after pull in it to see the difference. Been getting a knock sensor code lately and intermittent stalling...with bad hesitation from a standstill. New sensor, still persists. New MAF sensor, hesitation isn't as bad, but the problem is still there. (BTW, knock sensor is buried under the intake manifold) So I guess the next course of action is to pull the top end apart and start checking grounds. This will be the third time the top end is apart this year Rolling Eyes . Maybe while they're in there I'll borrow the intake for a little mild hand porting. Anyway.......

You gonna make any changes to the exhaust now AK?

I would love to add a manually operated exhaust cutout valve thing right after the flange so I could run it with open exhaust every once in a while just for fun, then close it back up. I doubt that's ever gonna come to fruition though hahaha.

Here is my DD. 2005 Ford Ranger Edge. 4.0L V6. 4X4. 4.10 Limited Slip Gears. K&N CAI. Thrush Welded Cat-back. 06+ Mirror Swap. 06+ taillight and headlight swap. Had to rebuild the tranny. The rest of the other junk you can see. Bought her bone stock in January 2013 and built her to where she is now.

I love the color on that ranger man, looks sharp! Automatic or stick shift. It looks like it has a leveling kit, or is that just my imagination? scratch

Nice looking ride man! Are the V6's in those Rangers as bad on fuel as everyone says they are?

Thanks man!  It is an auto.  Forget to mention that, sorry.  And it has the torsion bars turned up a little to level it out some.  Also removed the sway bar to help soften the ride some.  It has some body roll in corners, but its not too bad.

Thanks! I get about 17 MPG combined.  Maybe 21MPG on the highway.  It's not awful, but now a days, full sizes get better MPG than I do... Crying or Very sad

I feel like ford truck engines get poor gas mileage in general...at least till the 5.0

And thats coming from a ford guy lol. Chevy just makes a nice package though. Reliable, good aftermarket, good price, good power to fuel consumption, etc. But for some reason I've always liked ford lol

Ha... fuel mileage... I got gas at this no name, kinda run down gas station the other day. It was $.05 cheaper than anywhere else... suprise when I mathamalated out a whopping 17mpg! Back down to about 14mpg now... it was fun while it lasted... Daily driver? - Page 4 2664539216

Im giving some consideration into looking for something that does better. Unfortunately, all the manly man vehicles dont. But on the other hand...

My Impalla I get about 26-28mpg running to town and back.  On the interstate I get about 32-34 except in Arizona where I strangely get 40-42mpg?  I thought it was due to going down hill but a few days later when I went back through Arizona on the way home, I peaked again in the low 40mpg range?  Not complaining, just interesting. I figured it had to do with altitude and air quality.

Could be altitude, but I would think they have slightly higher octane fuel. Or higher standards or whatever. I filled up on 93 for fun a couple weeks ago and that tank lasted me a while. I never calculated it but it was noticeably better than 87

Welp. My daily is dead. I have about twice as much oil as I should and all my coolant disappeared. Head gaskets are toast. I have a suspicion that my heads are warped too. Not worth putting heads and gaskets into this junk engine. Time for the 3500 swap. whole deal should be about 1000 dollars to get it running. I'll do all the power mods next year when I'm in the automotive class and can do the work myself.

Right now it looks like I need the swap kit from Milzy Motorsports and a junkyard 3500. and a mechanical throttle body instead of this throttle by wire crap they have now. I think my tuned PCM will run this new engine without any changes, so I might gain a few hp with the swap. Looking forward to this stronger engine.

Couple other things I did over the summer, new aluminum radiator, 180* thermostat, and the tuned PCM installed. I did see a change in power but the temperature has been fluctuating way too much lately, so I've suspected head gaskets for a while. They just didn't officially go out till the other day

The 3400 was doomed from the beginning. Im sure theyre decent internally. Valvetrain, bottom end, etc. But things like gaskets and wiring are poorly made. The heads are known for warping so I'm sure the head bolts could be stronger, and maybe even stronger heads. Either way, I know they got rid of those problems with the 3500
