See the Borla sounded okay, at least from the video.
But I don't like the magnaflow on that one. Probably has to do with the cats being removed and the diameter I don't know. Sounds too "open" or something I don't know.

both sound pretty good even though it was a ****ty camera. only thing i noticed was when he was parked and just reved it up it sounded like ****. its like it was all just engine noise and no rumble. thats how mine is. its like once you get out of a certain rpm range it just sounds like air rushing and no rumble

Its so hard to get a true impression from a youtube video. Camera quality and videographer can make such a difference. Hard to know what it will really sound like in person.

and idk anyone else around here with my year f150 and 5.4 that has an exhaust so yea. lol no way to tell bc an exhaust shop wont take the time to help you by clamping it on or givin you ideas. they either push flowmaster, magnaflow, or straitpipes on you. if you say anything about a borla or mbrp or any of the nicer mufflers/kits they tell you that youve been lookin on the internet too much...

i love the idle and everything about mine. really nice rumble just sitting there.

i used to say it was too loud but i really like it and would recommend it to anyone. you can always bolt on other tips if you want.

I fitted the Banks exhaust today and that thing is massive over the stock pipe.
As for the sound you can't hear it at 50 mph until you floor it which im more than happy with it.
