Exhaust Setup (Muffler) options for 2005 4.6L


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I had posted this question in one of my previous threads, but I thought a new topic would be better for a response.

 

I recently removed the OEM factory muffler assembly. I didn't cut it, so I could re-install it again if I want.

 

I have an 8' bed with the regular cab. The extension pipe that goes behind the cab is there, as well as the cats. Is there anything I should be aware of running this setup for long term?

 

Its definitely a lot louder and more obnoxious at times, but at certain RPM's it sounds really good for just a muffler delete.

 

I'm looking into getting a new muffler for it, but I'm unsure of which one to get. I have a lot of raw sound right now without the muffler, so I'd want something that's loud outside yet refined, and still quiet in the cab. Any good ideas out there?

 

Right now, I'm kinda interested in the Borla XR-1, or the Flowmaster Super 40, Super 44, or Super 10. Any other ones you guys recommend?

 

Once I do get one, I plan on installing a turndown to let it echo off the pavement.

 

Also, other than the Super 10 where you have to weld it in place, are the others I listed need to welded also? Or can they just bolt in place of the OEM muffler?

 

I'm curious to know if this setup I have now is ok to run long term?  I don't want to put the factory exhaust back on unless I have to, as it was a pain to remove.

 

Thanks!

Thanks @twintornados, I didn't see your reply until just a little bit ago. Sorry for the delay. I appreciate your input, though.

 

Well, an update: I was gifted an 18" (23" total length) Cherry Bomb Glasspack from a member of my church this past Wednesday. I got it installed with a 12" turndown coming out of it.

 

In addition to this forum, I had posted this question to the guys at f150forum.com and they were able to help me out. Pictures of the final outcome, and the progress leading up to it are in thread.
