I will be keeping this thing as quiet as possible as to not embarrass myself. The 2.7 with an exhaust sounds like a tuner, not a truck. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the 2.7 TT, it just doesn’t have an exhaust note that says “ tough off road truck “

Im getting a 2 door so i dont really care if it sounds like a tuner lol since it will never be mistaken for a truck.

just asking general consensus as i know nothing with small displacement will have balls

I've looked around for a few 2.7 F-150s on YouTube and there are a couple I thought were pretty good. We'll see what comes for the bronco

I don't want to make the Bronco any louder inside than I'm guessing it will already be. But... this sounds much better than I thought a V6 turbo could sound.

Have the Borla Atak on the Wrangler with factory resonator removed and we love the sound, rather exotic sounding. Borla stingers on Z06 and of course that sounds awesome. Looking forward to Borla Atak for the Bronco.

An exhaust is a must for performance value alone. Probably first thing I upgrade on this. Can't sound ricey tho. With a good exhaust,k and n air filter ,and tune. Your looking at almost a 25-40 hp increase and better gas mileage.

This is my favorite sounding 2.7 exhaust. Very deep and diesel like sound.

Doing the intake and Roush exhaust will probably give you 50 hp and torque. Even more on a 3.5.

For sound, IMO you just need to replace the stock muffler with a Magnaflow.. will give you deeper rumble.

If you are looking for performance, you have to replace the CAT (aka CAT Back) with a high flow. Now that assumes there are not CATs up on the exhaust manifold.

In the end, most "Stock" exhaust (and even intakes) have more than enough flow. Unless you start moding the engine or doing a Tune that pushes it more and requires more.

My 3.5 TT Roush equipped F150 does not sound like a tuner and it smokes my buddies 19 Raptor. Just saying...

A full exhaust DP back, air filter and a tune should yield some nice power gains from the 2.7. In psyched!

Totally agree. V6s or 6 cylinders in general never sounds good as a V8
