How To Give Your Ford F-150 EcoBoost A Sportscar Sound: Video

Sponsored Links

Aftermarket exhaust options for owners of the current-generation Ford F-150 with 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine are limited, but they do exist. One such option – a catback system promising to deliver a “mellow” exhaust note and reduced air-flow restriction – comes from MBRP, and it’s just been reviewed by website American Muscle.

Promises of reduced exhaust restriction are all fine and well, but what we’re most interested in here is the sound. We tend to agree with what Road & Track wrote about MBRP’s kit for the Ford F-150’s 2.7L; it lends the pickup an almost sportscar-like voice. Hearing a sporty exhaust note emanate from a full-size pickup is just plain odd – although not necessarily in a bad way.

MBRP’s “Installer Series” catback exhaust for the Ford F-150 EcoBoost features 4-inch-diameter plumbing and a 5-inch side-exit stainless tip which terminates behind the rear passengers side wheel. At around $375 from American Muscle, we’re not sure how much of a performance boost it can actually deliver, but you really can’t go wrong with its deep, throaty timbre.
