If those numbers are correct and not botched that would be worth the V6 sound. V6 turbo that is.

Depends on how restrictive the factory muffler is. I know on my old 6.0 it was. This v6 is so quiet it that it just may be. I do know te 4 inch set up sounds nice and way better than the magnaflow muffler.

I am also a bit skeptical.

That's a big gain from just a catback. I know Ford has to deal with pretty restrictive sound level legislation, but it just seems unlikely that would have left that much on the table, unless they were trying to save the 6.2 from humiliation!

But if these are accurate, what an awesome upgrade! Don't see pricing for that kit, but it looks like the standard F150 exhausts are about $350 and the 4" Super Duty's about $100 more, so likely under $500 for this system. Honestly, even if it's half the reported gain it is still a decent upgrade! Great power bump with little downside. And IMHO far less likely to cause any warranty issues down the road than ecu tuning.

They also have a sound clip on their web site.

Also, remember how much difficulty pickuptrucks.com had getting good dyno runs with the EcoBoost? (article here) A little surprising to see such clean dyno runs from HeartThrob.

Here are the pickuptrucks dyno results for comparison.

After working with Ford engineers, K&N, and the SuperFlow dyno guys, they got these results:

What kind of hit in the fuel consumption department would we be looking at with this system?
