Exhaust note...What exhaust to get?

This is going to be an odd question, and well maybe seem kind of silly to some of you. Anyways I'd like to get duals on my F-150. I'm kind of picky about the sound though. I don't want a really "Loud" truck. I want it to be more or less quiet at idle and on the highway, but when I get up in the RPMs I want it to be known but not obnoxious. My 95 F-150 has straight pipes so I know obnoxious, trust me. Here's where the odd part of my question comes...

I want my truck to sound like Barricade from Transformers, minus the blower whine. Barricade is an S281E, Its a 3V 4.6l so I'd imagine that he'd sound very similar if it was a 5.4...

I've been told that a Borla Exhaust would produce the sound I'm looking for..

Any input?

From the sounds of it your looking for a Magnaflow system just remember the longer the muffler the quieter and the shorter the muffler the louder

My Flowmaster Delta Flow 50 series isen't to loud inside but she's got a nice deep rumble, when I pass somone you hear it good but still not abonxiously loud.


I only drive in the city, to get out of it!!!

I'm a big Magnaflow fan. I have had them on all my vehicles and have always loved the sound.

I had a rusting problem with my
and for $1100 I was hoping it will not do that
When I contacted Magnaflow they told me it was surface rust
So I upgraded to MBRP
