Default Ecoboost.. Exhaust

After watching several videos and reading a few posts about the ecoboost equiped f150, what muffler or exhaust system would give it alittle more of a deeper tone, perhaps even some rumble?

Not sure if there IS one. The turbos tend to kill the rumble. I've owned a lot of turbo cars and....they are just TOO quiet for the most part....and tend to sound...weird...if you mod the exhaust. At least on piston engine cars.

I drove one last night. I have to say, I have had many loud exhausts on Trucks and muscle cars, but I preferred the sound of the turbos spooling over the loud exhaust.

IMO adding an exhaust or trying to make the truck loud would not allow you to hear the sweet turbos churning!

The truck was quick. It was snowing out - probably 1-2 inches on the ground. Put it in 4wd high and it ripped around a corner and up a hill with no slip or hesitation what so ever! Very impressive.

Hmm I'm not very familiar with how greatly the turbos effect the exhaust, but I suppose id take the turbos spooling up instead ha sounds cool.

On one note however, I recall many f250s roaring down the road with aftermarket exhaust. Those have a turbo correct? Or is it that they have such a larger engine that it really doesn't matter

With exhaust the turbo spooling may be louder.
