Aural bliss: it’s no longer solely the possession of the owners of muscle and sports cars.
Indeed, the fact that the V8-equipped Ford F-150 uses essentially the same 5.0-liter Coyote engine as found in the Mustang means that firms have very little re-engineering to do when designing a new system for the full-size pickup. That’s good news for noise-loving Ford F-150 owners everywhere, as it allows for impressive sounds like those heard in the video above, which shows one or two dynamometer pulls in a 2015 Ford F-150 with Kooks headers and a full Kooks exhaust system.
Now, to be fair, there’s quite a lot of supercharger whine here, playing first fiddle to the Kooks exhaust setup; this Ford F-150 is equipped with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger. But if you can listen past that, the reward is tremendous; this Kooks system sounds much more crisp and raw than the stock Ford F-150 exhaust setup, giving the full-size pickup a growl to rival that of any pony car, Ford-badged or otherwise.
Hear the difference for yourself in the video above.
