Thumbs up Best Sounding Ecoboost Exhaust!!!

Hey everyone,

My name is Tim and I drive a 2011 Blue Flame Ecoboost F150 Scab 4WD XLT. I wanted to try something different with my Ecoboost than buying the Heartthrob or the likes. I went with replacing the 2.5" section of pipe (resonator, flex, stock muffler) with a straight 3" piece of pipe, a stainless Flowmaster Super 10, and a 3" flex. I think the results are the best sounding Ecoboost I have heard yet... and I have spent countless nights up late deciding the fate of my TT steed.

I am new to this forum coming from the Subaru world... here's a bit about me

- 10 year motocross racer and motorcycle fanatic
- Was a Chevy loyalist until I drove an Ecoboost
- I am an engineer in the performance development field of high end vehicle data acquisition (in lamens terms: dyno development)

Check out the video and let me know what you think, I'll be doing some pulls with it once I get my Stage 2 AFE filter and Superchips figures out their stock tune capture issue... Hope I can be an asset on here and look forward to talking with you guys!

Thanks and welcome. I'm sorry but I'm not feeling it, the Eco has not really had anything that sounds good. If I want exhaust sound, I'll mash my foot on the 3.7L v6 in my g37xS

The truck was destined to be quiet.

Best Ecoboost sounding exhaust is the one that came with it.

I respectfully disagree... but thanks for your input! I just couldn't stand a truck that sounded like a prius... id rather the v8 sound but since trucks are headed in the ecoboost direction i figured I'd embrace it.

If you have more time you record your truck launching and driving by so we could really hear how it sounds.

A good friend of mine is all about his STI. Its amazing how much power those guys can make.

I'll agree that it's the best sounding custom exhaust I have heard on an eco yet, but I think I will stick with the coyote's growl.

That sounds pretty good man. I have magnaflow on mine and i think the tone is good but it lacks volume...
