So this highly rated system for Magnaflow is going to be for the five liter truck owners out there looking to increase both the sound and the appearance slightly over that factory system. And what I mean by that is, yes you are gonna be getting a little bit more rumble with this system installed over the factory system, but nothing too crazy here, in addition to spicing up the appearance a little bit as well. We're gonna talk about the installation, which I can tell you here right up front, if you have a SuperCrew or a SuperCab F-150, this one is going to be very straightforward. No cutting, no permanent modification needed, so expect a relatively soft one outta the three wrenches on the difficulty meter, with a little bit more detail coming up later on.Now this thing does still exit out of the factory location, but with those dual staggered tips, it's gonna give you a more modified look. But let's start off with the tone here with the Magnaflow MF Series, and you can ultimately be the judge because you heard the sound clip earlier in the video. You can decide if you love it or hate it on your own, but what I can tell you here is that this system is gonna be a great choice for the truck owners who don't wanna rattle the windows in your neighborhood or set off car alarms when driving down the street. You are, again, getting a little bit more rumble over that factory system, but you're not getting any rasp to speak of, and the interior noise is going to be minimal at best.So breaking out my wake the neighbors scale, I'm going strong three outta five here. Again, this is a great sounding system for my daily drivers out there because it's something that you're gonna hear, yes, of course, but it's not gonna drive you crazy on long trips. This is one of those times too where I'm gonna tell you guys, check out the reviews on the product page because there's a few people that have already installed this on their five liter truck and the reviews are glowing. If you really like the sound this system is producing, you love what Magnaflow does as a brand but maybe you're looking for a slightly different configuration, such as a dual split rear exit for instance, well you're in luck because Magnaflow does offer a number of different configurations but they're gonna utilize roughly the same MF Series muffler. So expect the sound to be very consistent throughout all of these different cat-backs.Now this MF Series muffler does feature a straight through by design construction, featuring an internal perforated tube. That thing is wrapped with a stainless steel mesh material, and then the entire muffler gets stuck with...stuff with this acoustic fiber which helps round out the sound a little bit more, give you that nice deep aggressive tone. As far as the rest of the system, well, guys, all quality here is kinda what we really come to expect from Magnaflow. You're looking at three inch tubing leading into that MF Series muffler. It does kick down a two and a half inch tubing before exiting out the brightly polished three and a half inch tips. They are slashed cut, they are staggered, and they look really good when installed. And again, this is really nothing new for Magnaflow. You're getting full 409 grade stainless steel here, guys, great construction, great welds, great fitment, and for a price point, yes you're not getting that 304 grade stainless steel, you are getting 409, but it's a really solid system for right around the thousand dollar price.Another great thing with this system is of course the ease of install. One outta three wrenches on a difficulty meter as I pointed out a little bit earlier, maybe an hour or two of total time spent underneath the truck. Now this is designed to fit your SuperCrew or SuperCab F-150. So again, no cutting needed here with this particular system. In fact, Magnaflow says you really only need a 15 millimeter socket wrench to get the job done, along with the hanger removal tool or maybe a pry bar if you have one laying around the shop.Obviously that factory exhaust will need to come off first, so get the truck on a lift if you need to. If not, you can do this on your back if you'd like. Once that factory system is removed, you can get to work installing the new Magnaflow system here in reverse order. I always like starting from front to back. Get the entire system hung first before your final tighten up and you should be good to go. The Magnaflow Systems for the newer F-150 continue to be one of my top choices for both the EcoBoost trucks and the V8 trucks alike. In fact, one customer review on the site put it perfectly, this thing makes the V8 truck sound alive, and I think that's a great way to sum up this system. You're getting some great tone without being over the top. Construction and fitment are completely top notch. And last but not least, that dual same side exit configuration looks really good when installed. So that is my review of the Magnaflow MF Series, which you can find right here at americanmuscle.com.

Corrected Exhaust Tone. The oversized muffler that Ford naturally puts on their trucks effectively mutes the sound of your engine. However, if you want a powerful sound, this works against. The Magnaflow Street Series Dual Same Side Exit Cat-Back System uses the Street Series Muffler to return the sound that your truck deserves when you press down on the gas.
Vigorous Performance. Performance is just as - if not more important - than sound, though. The Magnaflow Street Series Dual Same Side Exit Cat-Back System removes the restrictions of a factory exhaust. You will immediately notice a return of power and torque to your back wheels as well as an increase in fuel economy.
Quality Construction. For quality, the Magnaflow Street Series Dual Same Side Exit Cat-Back Exhaust System is made with mandrel-bent 409 stainless steel tubing. This construction makes it, of course, resistant to damage. In addition, though, you will find that your truck's exhaust won't corrode or rust either.
Piece of Cake Installation. Using factory hanger locations , the Magnaflow Street Series Dual Same Side Exit Cat-Back System bolts directly onto factory hangers. The kit includes necessary hardware but you will need basic hand tools. No cutting or welding is required.
Application. The Magnaflow Street Series Dual Same Side Exit Cat-Back System is specifically designed to fit on all 2015-2020 SuperCab and SuperCrew F-150s powered by the 5.0L V8 engine. Does not fit Regular Cabs

It took about two hours to install. It helps if you can put your truck on a lift especially to remove the factory exhaust. I was able to place a floor jack on the passenger side of the frame rail and elevate the truck enough to remove. Make sure to remove all hangers first. Other than that, it sounds great! Not loud at all at highway speeds.Helpful (0)

Not at all as described. LOUD!
The website says this is a 3 out of 5 in terms of noise level. This is a 5 out of 5 on cold start up, a 4 out of 5 accelerating around town, a 3 out of 5 cruising on the highway and a 3 out of 5 at warm idle. It looks great. Built well but is just obnoxious starting the truck in a parking lot or driveway. I am taking this off, putting stock back on and maybe deleting the resonator.Helpful (1)

This system looks good and would work with the trk I have....But I got the same exahust for less than $400.00 and I used a Flowmaster and stainless pipes,plus all joints are welded close..So for less money than it sells for online, I feel I got a much better deal...so shop around...!!!!!Helpful (5)

Based on the reviews here I chose to go with this system. It was exactly what I was hoping for. Quiet at cruising speed and a nice deep tone at start up / accelerating. No droning and a slightly noticeable power increase. Looks great and sounds great, no complaints here.Helpful (4)

What size pipe is this and how much Horse Power will this give me.
The piping is a 3 inch 409 Stainless Steel tubing and you should see power gains of 10-15 HP with no tune
Does this system keep the factory resonator?
The Magnaflow MF Series Dual Exhaust System will delete the factory resonator.
On a "loud meter" where would this exhaust place 1-5 (1 being low rumble, 5 being very loud)? I'm look for duals that let you know they are there, but won't wake the neighbors.
This is going to be a straight through muffler, and where it's not the loudest one we offer, straight through mufflers as a whole are the loudest design of mufflers. So I'd still put this at a 4 or a 4.5.
Does this system allow the spare tire to remain in its original location?
Yes, this does allow the factory spare tire to remain in it's original location.
Does this system fit a 2018 F-150 SuperCrew with a 6.5' bed without any further modification?
Yes, this will fit with no extra modification.
