The exhaust system is a series of pipes that carry the exhaust gases that are released from the combustion cylinders, through the manifold head and out into the air.
In most of the exhaust systems, the header or intermediate pipes, crossover pipes, catalytic converter, mufflers, and tailpipes will come in various configurations.
Ford’s F150 Eco Boost engine is one of the ones that have a good reputation as far as Ford engines are concerned. There is no doubt in the minds of those who have used it and seen it in action how great it is.
You can’t help but think highly of it when you see it. There are many things to like about this car, including the fuel efficiency, the power and the emissions.
I have no doubt that the quality of your engine is of the highest level. What can be said about the sound of the engine? In reality, if you were to drive down the road and your exhaust makes you sound awful, you would probably hate it.
You can consider your pickup truck as a little part of yourself that just happens to be parked in your driveway. If you really want to make it your own, you may want to customize it a bit.
The idea was to make it a little faster, sound a little better, and to make it just that bit extra special. Exhaust upgrades for your Ford F-150 are a great way to transform your vehicle into the car you’ve always wanted.
Add more appeal to the exhaust tips, and you can add a lot of extra sound, or you can just place the outlet a little bit more sporty and away from the bumper.
As it is with many aftermarket performance components, buying an aftermarket exhaust system for your Ford F-150 isn’t always as straightforward as, for example, replacing your windshield wipers.
A car’s exhaust system is available in various sizes and shapes, while the type of muffler it has can have a significant impact on how it sounds.
Choosing the best exhaust for your F-150 can come down to your personal preference on the sound and appearance of the exhaust system.
However, you still need to make sure you find a product that fits well and is constructed from high-quality materials that will last for years, without you having to worry about rust or cracks.
Borla® 140616 ATAKTM Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust System with Split Rear Exit is one of our most popular exhaust systems.
Stainless steel Cat-Back exhaust system is made of high quality materials and delivers a loud, aggressive sound to your vehicle.
It includes a 3″ main exhaust pipe, a straight-through, multi-core ATAK muffler with mandrel-bent exhaust tubes, and a straight-through ATAK muffler with a built-in breather.
There are two halves to the rear, and one has a round polished stainless steel 4″ diameter tip with a length of 12″.
Roush Performance 421711
The Roush 421711 Cat-Back Exhaust with the dual-tip rear is designed for 2011-2014 Ford F-150 models with the 5.0L engine, 6.2L engine, or 3.5L engine.
This model possesses the aggressive sound of a classic Roush exhaust system since it has been fitted with a canister-style muffler with a 3″ exhaust pipe. In addition, it has removed the restrictive factory resonator.
The stainless-steel system includes a polished muffler, a polished outlet pipe and a polished y-pipe, and the dual tips are both made of 304 stainless steel and are embossed with the Roush logo.
Those pipes are made up of mandrel bent 409 stainless steel and all pipes – muffler, inlet, and outlet – are three inches in diameter.
At a very good price, this product is a budget-friendly replacement exhaust system that delivers excellent sound and great performance with little effort.
Flow master Outlaw Series Exhaust (817696)
Flow master focuses on exhaust systems as its main focus. The name of the product tells you everything you need to know about it just by looking at it.
The company offers a range of exhaust systems that range from mild to wild, matching the sound and the buyer for each system.
The company’s loudest system, the Outlaw, is suitable for Ford F-150s in the 2004-2008 model year.
Flow master says that the product is designed for people who are looking for maximum sound levels both inside and outside the truck, so it might not exactly be a neighbor-friendly product.
The exhaust combines a three-inch dual pipe for maximum flow, which is combined with a four-inch black ceramic coated tip that gives the exhaust a look and sound that’s as mean as it sounds.
The system consists of a Super 10 series muffler that is attached to factory hangar locations, allowing you to be able to install it from your home by following the instructions given on the package.
One more unique feature of this system is that it can be set up to have the dual pipes coming out of the rear of the truck as well as coming out of the sides, depending on your preference.
Magna Flow Street Series Cat-Back Exhaust (15366)
The Magnaflow 6.2-liter Ford Raptor exhaust from Magna flow has a three-inch diameter tubing from front to back, which makes it a great choice for the Ford Raptor exhaust needs.
This means both a higher flow as well as a higher level of performance, and Magna flow claims that it will deliver an aggressive performance sound outside of your cab while giving you just a moderate improvement inside.
When you’re on the trail jumping dunes, that makes it sound a lot cooler, but when you’re driving on the highway to and from the trail it makes much more sense.
Street Series exhausts are equipped with Magna flow mufflers that are stainless-finish, but also have black-coated pipes from the end of the muffler to the tips, so you have a stealthy-cool appearance even when you are under the truck.
Due to the ceramic coating, you can expect your car to retain its same look for many years to come, both on and off the road. In order for your louder exhaust to still be in compliance with the law, Magna flow tests its volume levels by using SAE J1169.
aFe Power ATLAS Performance Exhaust (49-03069-B)
ATLAS series exhausts from aFe carry a diameter of 4-inches through the piping and an even larger exhaust tip.
A large pipe, combined with smooth mandrel bends, means maximum flow for your engine, even if you modify it with aftermarket modifications, such as adding more boost to your factory turbochargers or installing an aftermarket system that helps move even more air.
A 21-inch muffler to reduce high-pitched sounds helps it to sound more powerful and gives it a more professional appearance. Factory hangars are used for an original equipment fit.
There is a wrinkle-look powder coat finish on the tip, along with a laser-cut aFe Power badge to make sure that everyone around you will realize that it is not stock.
It is designed for trucks that are equipped with the 2.7-liter and 3.5-liter Eco Boost V6 engines, which is a popular engine in the trucks with limited aftermarket support, which makes this system a great gift for owners of these trucks.
A system that is made from aluminum instead of stainless steel will be more durable than one made from standard steel, however it won’t last as long as one made from stainless steel.
You will find many different exhausts for the F-150 on the company’s website, so feel free to browse if you have a different engine under the hood.
