The intake end of the silencer bottlenecks the air, the outlet end is the full width. Could breathe better if i could find a replacement. Was thinking a piece of pipe from an exaust shop.

I don't know how much you will gain, but if you don't mind cheap, you could probably get some intake tubing from autozone, I think they still sell that crappy prefabed stuff...

What diameter is it? I have a shiny accord intake I could hook you up with, but its only 2.5" diameter.... If not, just get a intake off ebay. :hehe:

2 3/4"

Who the Fuck uses a random size like that?

Thats why i can find anything.

I tried autozone.
Im not expecting anything from it, just figured it cant really hurt

That doesn't really look too restricting for a 2.3l. I assume your trying improve gas mileage (from sig), so even if it was restricting, your foot being light on the pedal would cause the restriction to be minute. Removing the silencer might actually reduce the air pressure at low rpms enough to harm gas mileage. But if you are WOT around town all day then sure remove the silencer lol.

well, on the ranger forums i am a member of, others get 26-30 without trying, and when i baby the hell out of it i can only get 26, i average around 17 which isnt that bad IMO, but i just want it out.

A 10 mpg increase for a silencer? Ford engineers can't be that ignorant. I was thinking elevation would come into play, but Tennessee is pretty low. But maybe it does help, I would just figure it would weaken low end torque. I would call :bs: on the people claiming 30 mpg.

Well my exaust smells like fuel so i think my o2 sensors are going bad, also the intake on my truck isnt the "normal" intake.

well if u have ever driven one of these 2.3l in a ranger on the highway you would know that it takes WOT to get around in these things..

Great trucks... just the 4 bangers are a bit underpowered..

oh and Grot I've NEVER seen my girls average better than 23..

this was her last fillup.. just started with fuelly so I only have the one..

That makes me feel better, still need to figure out the rich smell.

I got 26 when i put around town in 5th gear

i always putz around in 5th gear

my other 87 truck averaged around 26ish mpg mixed driving before the fuel sender started fucking up, then i just put 10 dollars in it every 3 days cause i never really knew how much gas was in it cause the needle would wander

and that was 26mpg with a webber carb

btw why dont u just make a intake out of 3 inch pvc, hella eazy to do

days later..............

guess the engine couldnt take the extra power

Grot

lol forgot about the thread.

Def an audible difference, didnt seem to lose any torque, and top end is much smoother.

seems to have more power at redline judging by how loud it chirps the tires.

I did this on my truck too.

but the engineers were telling me that the silencer other then silencing also does something with the frequency that the air enters at. something about the turbo pulses or some shit.. blah blah blah.. too much technical crap for me.

All i know is that with the silencer out, and a intake and straight pipe my truck whistles like a sombitch
