The only mechanical upgrade we’ve made to our Ford Ranger was to fit a King Brown exhaust system from South Aussie exhaust gurus Pacemaker. The three-inch turbo-back King Brown system allows the 3.2-litre diesel engine to breathe a little better and gives it a nice growl though the exhaust. It also gives us scope for future engine enhancements through the intake and tuning.
One of the great things about using quality Australian-made products on your 4x4 is that you can talk to the people who design and manufacture them and have the security of local after sales service if needed.
There’s also comfort in knowing it was designed and made by people who know Aussie conditions and the unique terrain it can throw up. That’s not something you can always rely on from an imported online purchase.
When we were passing through Adelaide after our Flinders Ranges adventure, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to drop by Pacemaker’s manufacturing facility to see where these legendary exhaust systems come to life.
