Review & Install Video
Hey, everybody. I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com and welcome to my detailed review and install of the MBRP Pro Series Dual Seam Side exit Cat-Back Exhaust System dumping before the passenger side rear tire available for your 2015 and newer 3.5-liter EcoBoost-powered F-150.
In this video, I'm gonna break down the sound profile. You can expect when going with MBRP system here. What you can expect as far as materials and construction from the Pro Series. And then finally, a quick little walk-through of the install itself. On the surface, guys, there will be the smallest amount of cutting depending on your cabin bed size. Still gonna go one out of three wrenches here with a little bit more detail coming up later on.
In my opinion, guys, the Pro Series from MBRP should appeal to just about any F-150 owner out there for a few basic reasons. First and foremost, it's gonna appeal to those who really dig that dual same side exit configuration dumping before the passenger side rear tire. In my opinion, a very, very cool look when installed. It's also gonna offer a considerable increase in sound over your factory system. And last but not least, it's gonna be for the truck owners out there who want premium materials but at an affordable price.
As I mentioned a few times now already guys, this will be a little different in that configuration, dual same side exit again, before the passenger side rear tire. A lot of you guys watching this who are Ford truck fans probably remember that as being something that you might have seen on the SVT Lightnings back in the day, very same look here when installed. And again, something I think looks really killer on the truck. Now, obviously, we will talk a little bit more about the configuration, materials, construction, all that good stuff. But since this is an exhaust, let's dive right into the sound first.
As you guys heard with our sound clips at the very top of this video, guys, the MBRP Pro Series definitely produced a good amount of tone again, a noticeable increase in volume over your factory system as expected, but it's still not the loudest or craziest system I've ever heard. Breaking out the one to five or one to wake the neighbor's scale, I'm going strong middle of the road here, three out of five. I did pick up a little bit of noise inside the cab when cruising, that might be a function of where this thing actually exits the truck, underneath the cab a little bit. But ultimately guys, it wasn't something that I would consider a deal breaker by any stretch of the imagination.
With the sound aside, let's talk materials here with the Pro Series. The Pro Series, really guys, is gonna be the best MBRP has to offer when it does boil down to overall construction and materials. And now, if you're familiar with MBRP, you know, you can get into one of their systems for not a lot of dough overall, but you can also expect a wide variety of options due to the different materials or configurations.
Now, some of these include the installer series on the low-end, the XP series or even the Black series, all of these systems I just mentioned are gonna utilize either 409 grade stainless steel or aluminized steel. The Pro Series here, on the other hand, is gonna be the only system MBRP offers that will offer full 304 grade stainless steel, the benchmark in the exhaust world. And as such, it's gonna be the only system they offer that will come backed by a full lifetime warranty.
Taking that construction a step further, guys, you're gonna find three-inch tubing leading off the flange here, through the high-flow muffler from MBRP before splitting off in the dual three-inch tail pipes all exiting out the four-inch polished tips here, embossed with that MBRP logo. Again, everything is made from that 304 grade stainless steel. So, you're gonna have a system that's gonna remain looking good for years to come underneath your truck, even in the snowiest or saltiest climates.
Now, guys, if you really enjoy everything about this system from the quality to the materials to most importantly the sound, but maybe you're not a huge fan of that dual same side exit configuration before the rear tire, you can always pick this thing up in a few different configurations here at AM, including a four-inch version. Again, check them out on the site if you haven't done so already.
Now, switching gears, let's talk price. And since the Pro Series is the higher-end of the MBRP lineup, expect to spend a little bit more than some of their other budget offerings here on the site. In fact, you're gonna paying right around the $600 price point for the Pro Series, which in the big picture in the exhaust world, is very reasonable giving the premium materials.
And let's touch on the install like we promised at the top of this video, guys. And like I said earlier on, there is a small amount of cutting needed here to get the MBRP Pro System in place depending on your cab and bed size. Luckily for you guys, MBRP does a great job of laying out very clearly what you need to cut and how much you need to cut depending on your wheelbase. Again, just make sure you double-check that first. The old saying goes, "Measure twice, cut once," and you'll be good to go here. Of course, you wanna make sure you have a good cutting tool on hand. My personal preference is a Sawzall. The nice fresh metal blade should make short work of this 304 grade stainless tubing. Other than that, guys, you're looking at a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe a strong one out of three of course, because there is a little cutting. And other than that, a basic socket set. You should be looking at about an hour or two from start to finish to remove the factory system and get the Pro System in place.
I really enjoy the MBRP lineup because they offer something for everyone and ultimately every budget. The Pro Series here is gonna be a premium option from the budget-friendly brand, one that's gonna pack excellent build quality and materials and a very aggressive note to boot.
So that's my review of the MBPR Pro Series which you can get for your F-150 right here at americanmuscle.com.
