You can't make it sound like the beast it is with out some growl to go with the whistle.

the flowmaster exhaust for the ecoboost raptor actually sounds good. and I'm not a flowmaster fan at all.

Every V-6 I've ever heard with an aftermarket exhaust sounded like someone farting in a bucket. I'll pass.

turbo engines don't sound like naturally aspirated engines.

There's no replacement for that American Muscle V-8 sound no matter how much one tries. Having a whistle on top of it would be like the proverbial "cherry on top"

No meal? No cherry dessert.

No cherry? No deal.

none of those are trying to sound like a v8.......

let's remember you said "every V6 I've heard with aftermarket exhaust sounds like someone farting in a bucket"

So I posted 3 good examples that that's not always the case.

I didn't insinuate they were trying to sound like a V8. Just pointing out it's not the same.

If Ford want's to pull $70,000+ from my wallet for a truck, they damn sure better make it sound like I want it to. Other wise, NO DEAL!!

Will have to wait until it is officially on the market to see if it actually is over 700 HP.
Rumors speculate 750 HP for the new GT500. We'll see!

In one of those videos, if you look really closely, I could swear that I see a speaker up in the rear wheel well.

If the front end is big enough for the 6.2 what besides a dual cam head is different. Also the stuff I have read it is going to be an option in the high end F150 and Raptor in 2019.

The 7.0l is going to be an engine option in the 2019 Raptor along with the 5.0l EcoBoost that everyone has been saying is just around the corner for the past 7 years.
