Better sound

Hey guys. I got a 2009 f150 supercrew 5.4l
I want to get a deeper sound out of the engine. What would be my best option? Is the cold air intake worth it?


What do you do when you're knee deep in mud...get back in your truck.

Knock the muffler off and put a straight pipe in it. A c.a.i won't do anything for the exhaust sound, it will only howl under the hood when you get on the gas.

Straight pipes won't make it deeper, just louder, just my 2 cents though. If you want a deep rumble you need something like a smaller Magnaflow muffler or Borla depending on what kind of cash you want to spend. I have a SI/DO Flo-Pro V-Force muffler and it is extremely deep. It has a nice rumble across the whole rpm range.

Just remember the longer the muffler the quieter the shorter the muffler the louder, and by length I mean body length not overall length

I have a Flow master 50 Series Muffler on my Raptor. It sounds great when I am accelerating but quiets down when cruising.
