An exhaust system is a series of pipes that take the exhaust gases released by the combustion cylinders through the manifold head and out into the atmosphere.
It is common to find exhaust systems with various configurations of headers or intermediate pipes, crossover pipes, catalytic converters, mufflers, and tailpipes.
The good news is that if you are looking to upgrade your Ford F-150, you don’t need to spend a huge amount of money in order to make it sound and function better.
If you want to make your truck feel as new as the ones you used to, you should consider getting a new exhaust system.
Among the many different types of exhaust systems out there, one would definitely stand out as being the most widely known, and the most loved by the vast majority.
There is something satisfying about its aggressive tone that many truck owners tend to enjoy. The drawback is that the engine gets really noisy when you reach higher RPMs, especially on city streets or highways that are crowded with cars.
It may not be a deal breaker for some drivers, but for those who are sensitive to interior noise and/or those who have kids in the car, it may pose a problem. However, for those looking for a third-party exhaust system for the F150 Eco boost.
MBRP – Best Exhaust for Fuel Economy for Ford F150
MPG is the most important aspect of this exhaust system. MBRP wanted to have an advantage over its competition, and so it decided to give its vehicles a boost in fuel efficiency in order to make that happen.
You cannot expect it to decrease F150’s hunger by 50%; however, you can expect to see a positive change in that direction.
To top all of that off, this system underwent dozens of dyno tests that were conducted both by MBRP engineers and third-party organizations.
As a result, it is a reliable platform that you can count on to perform at its best even when the going gets tough.
With the addition of the premium black coating, you will be able to combat overheating and other “outside threats” and you will see why S5260BLK was placed at the top of my list.
On the other hand, I must mention that on a cold start, this exhaust system might become rather loud. There is not an alarming amount of noise like some really old cars, but still, it is obviously noticeable.

Flow master Outlaw Series Exhaust (817696)
The company’s main focus is on exhaust systems, which is where it excels.
A quick glance at its name will tell you everything you need to know about this product.
There is a wide range of exhaust systems offered by this company, ranging in sound from mild to wild, so buyers can choose what they prefer.
I am going to show you the company’s loudest system, the Outlaw system, for the Ford F-150 trucks between 2004 and 2008.
According to the Flow master website, the speaker is designed “for the person who wants the maximum amount of noise inside and outside the truck,” meaning that it does not appear to be very neighbor-friendly.
The exhaust system offers a three-inch dual pipe for maximum flow combined with four-inch black ceramic coated tips which provide an exhaust system look that sounds as mean as it sounds.
The system uses a Super 10 series muffler, and it attaches to the factory hangar locations, so your installation process will feel quick and easy enough that you can handle it at home.
A unique feature about this system is that it can be set up so that the dual pipes will come out either from the rear of the truck or from the sides, depending on your personal preference.
Magna Flow Street Series Cat-Back Exhaust (15366)
This Magna flow 6.2-liter Ford Raptor exhaust system comes with 3 inch tubing from front to back, making it a perfect option for your Ford Raptor exhaust needs.
In the long run, this means better performance as well as better flow, and Magna flow claims it will deliver an aggressive performance sound outside your truck, while giving you just a moderate increase in sound inside your cab.
Obviously, it sounds cooler when you’re on the trail jumping dunes, but it’s a lot nicer when it comes to driving on the highway when you’re going to and from the trail.
Despite the large stainless-finish Magna flow muffler on this Street Series exhaust, the black-coated pipes extend all the way from the end of the muffler back to the tips, giving the exhaust a stealth-cool appearance even when under your truck.
As it is a ceramic coating, you should maintain that same look every time you use the vehicle, regardless of how widely you use it.
As long as your exhaust is louder than what is advertised by Magna flow, then it should still be compliant with the law since we test it using SAE J1169.
