After hem-hawing back and forth between the Magnaflow and a less expensive system for several months, I decided to go for it and purchase the Magnaflow. I figured fewer pieces was better, right? The Magnaflow came in three sections as opposed to four on another system. I had Ed's Mufflers install it for $69.95. It took two guys less than 10 minutes to lift the truck, remove the old exhaust and install the new. It looks great, and sounds good too, for a V6 - not "ricey". But it's a Ford, how could it? I posted a sound clip on YouTube, and it sounds pretty similar to the others. It's not super loud, and has a nice tone. I don't notice any in-cab drone, but I usually have my stereo on. I haven't had time to calculate any fuel savings, but was hoping for at least 1 or 2 mpg improvement with this exhaust and my K&N cold air intake, based on other reviews. Wish I could tell you what I get, but I got this "write a review" reminder, so this is it.
