semi-long muffler story and questions

Quick background and then my questions...

I use to have a 97 V6 F150 (ext. cab) with an ol' flowmaster/magnaflow that I had cut off (super old and rusted). So this was my first experience with Cherry Bomb mufflers and it sung like a jailbird. :) super loud!!!...I loved it!


However, I had to get a new vehicle and of course I got a 2003 f150 v8 triton (5.4L) (ext. cab). Someone suggested "branching out" and trying a magnaflow/flowmaster so when I took off the HUGE factory muffler I put on a flowmaster/magnaflow and just did NOT cut it like I thought it should/would (loud wise).

So with that said, I will more than likely be purchasing a newer truck, either a 2005-2008 F150 supercrew or a 250 supercrew.

-----------------------------------------

1. To get the loudness that I had once had, would it be safe to say that using a Cherry Bomb again will guaranteeingly give me that loud sound again (on my 2003)?

2. Will a Cherry Bomb still work (loud-wise) on a new 05-08 150?

3. If I get a 250, are they possible to change the exhaust to something that will be louder or no? (will a Cherry Bomb work is what im asking?)

I konw this is a long post but nobody seems to know these answers. I have ford faith that you guys (and girls) will.

Thanks,

Andrew

Some of the loudest exhaust systems I have seen for Mod motors are SLP Loudmouths. Don't know if they do truck applications. I know for mustangs, they scare old people. :)

Re: semi-long muffler story and questions

Sorry for the confusion by Mod motor, I was referring to the Modular engines...the 4.6L and 5.4L, as opposed to the pushrod motors, 302 351, etc. Like I said, check out SLP Loudmouths.

Re: semi-long muffler story and questions

I dont know the differences btwn all of the liters of engines (or engines themselves [v8, v6, v10, etc.] and stuff but i do know mine is a 5.4L.

However, I looked up loudmouths and anything i found results that loudmouths are for mustangs and similar souped up cars only...so that wont work for me.

I went into my local autozone and inquired with them and of course, as usual, they had no idea about what to get or do. so i browsed through their auto parts guide and came across gibson mufflers and purple hornies glasspacks (GP).......STRANGE name.

i know i cant do gibson b/c the only one that fits my model ford comes right off about a foot from the cat. Well i have running boards so that wont work. So now it seems to either get Cherry Bomb GP or these odd-named Purple Hornies GP.

Re: semi-long muffler story and questions

dynomax race magnums are super loud on my truck it is an 01 4.6l i have true dual exhaust though w/no catylast converters.to make your truck loud you have to get high flow cats or no cats at all.

Re: semi-long muffler story and questions

to bkmurray98. i've heard of the dynomax magnums and i'll look into 'em. as far as the cats go, it's illegal where i live to not have a cat, to hollow one out or much else anything so that's not an option.
