First off, i didnt know there was an f150 ecoboost forum. So i was posting a little bit on f150forums.com
Anyways ill start here, picked up this brand new 2012 F150 Ecoboost a month ago with less than 50 miles on the odometer. Within a week of owning it i threw on a 6'' procomp lift kit with XD wheels. Couldn't stand the factory height. Dont plan to do much anymore except find a mean ass exhaust! If you have suggestions Ill gladly appreciate it. Ill be doing some searching around here anyways. Hope you guys enjoy!:D

Current:

Before:

I also own a 2011 Tacoma TRD Sport. Also have that lifted on 6'' procomp lift kit with some XD wheels :D

Sweet EcoBeast!

Welcome to the site and congratulations on the new EcoBeast. You will find mixed reviews on exhaust. Most provide great HP/TQ increases, but sound like a fart. It has been the consensus from what I have seen that you cannot make this engine sound great.

Sweet setup on the new Eco glad you found the right site lol! There are a couple of threads one especially with a list of YouTube video clips on just EcoBoost exhaust but like SPPD mentioned it is hit or miss at best as far as sound goes...

Nice ride I love the look of the truck. I'm going up 6 inches as well, mid to late summer I hope... As for exhaust I just got the heartthrob. I haven't installed it yet but it to my ears has the best sound and it is a mean looking exhaust, 4" is no joke lol.

Truly it's the most "throaty" sound to my ears and taste but it will never sound like a meaty V8 the turbos will never let it... I love it's now that is on a lill more drone than I thought it was going to have but now after a few days of driving a ton I don't note it at all unless I want to.

Thanks I did some YouTube searches but they don't do justice. From all the reviews though, I'll probably be going with the heartthrob.
