Basically what I did. Had a local shop install an 18" Magnaflow, with piping + labor, $550.
I purchased the tips separately, dual slant behind each rear tire.
Just installed Roush CAI and it sounds fantastic and exactly what I was looking for!
Totally agree with engine choices and Fords come a long way with the Eco. Like I stated, I came from the first year Eco and I'm sure they've made a lot of improvements since then.
But, with all those improvements, it doesn't change the fact that I smile every time I crank up my V8...to each...
All I can say I came from a 2011 Ecoboost (first year for that motor) and am thrilled to be back in a V8.
The 3.5 is a good engine (even though at roughly 72000 miles had to replace timing chain at $2500) and am sure they made improvements over the years but, my main concern was "ALWAYS" the...
Used bleach white once, wasn't impressed...maybe I didn't use correctly, as my tires still had that brown crap on them(from what I've gathered the brown crap is part of the mold release when tires are manufactured and continues to seep out of the rubbers pores).
Will try again along with brush...
Has anyone heard of or used Dura-coating tire dressing?
Everything I seen or read says this is one of the best options out there for tires.
Once applied, will last 3-6 months depending on driving conditions.
Not a fan of the "Shiney Look" but do like the satin look on my tires...
Ordered the Roush. Really wanted the S and B. When I spoke with them, explaining Roush was just capping one of the inlets (also supplying the cap) on their 15-20 CAI, they said they couldn't reccomend the same for theirs, so I ordered the Roush.
They also asked me if I were in their area...
Like I said, "To each their own" and "It's a personal preference ", so there is no reason to start any crap!
Personally I have Never ANY 6 cylinder, true dual or not , that sounds worth a damn.
I drove the first year Ecoboost, 2011 , for 9 years and never once dreamed of putting duals on it.
Drove the Eco for 10 years, 2011 first year for that motor.
#1 Never buy a first year motor( at 70000 had to replace timing chain ar $2500!)
I know they've come a long way with motor and it's a strong one but, the way I drive, a little heavy with the foot, the gas mileage I got was that of a V8...
Had a custom dual Magnaflow installed. Just right, sounds like a V8 should without being obnoxious. Had dual running out the back but, they set too low for me, so now have Wesdon dual slant/angled behind each wheeel and now I'm happy!
Next on my list....spoilers!
