Today I installed the Flowmaster Outlaw series Axleback. I was in the market for an exhaust and for $130 I had to try it. The videos online (including my own) sound good but in person it is so much better. I am recording using an iPhone so it is only so good at getting accurate audio. I will say that for getting bolts in the frame for the hanger, I recommend using a magnet To fish the bolts in place. Otherwise it might be better to remove the bumper.

Overall the initial start and idle is very cool and there is a bit of a rumble which took me a little by surprise. Flooring it… it is a v6 and there is no way around that but, I like the sound much more than stock. It is certainly much louder outside the vehicle as well. Almost sounds like the Bronco raptor in Baja mode to me. As for the power gains… maybe but I don’t know if my butt dyno can tell a difference of 15hp. I know I want to step on the gas more to hear the exhaust so maybe that is a contribution to the possible improved feel. I like the exhaust and for a bargain price, it is worth it to me. I know there are many who won’t like it but that’s fine too. Overall, I recommend the exhaust for those looking to invest minimal for a great looking and in my opinion great sounding exhaust.

I wonder if the cat back would be worth the extra price? I was looking at these when they were posted a few days ago and am very interested especially if I can get that Raptor sound.

From what I’m reading the outlaw is basically straight pipes. So 130$ is right on. The cat back seems overpriced.

I’m not understanding the axle-back. When I go to the link, it’s just a pipe. Is the a muffler that I need to buy to go with it? How does a pipe change the sound?

Nice touch with the leaf blowing on the driveway; you can tidy the yard with it too!

Now, would you please temporarily swap in a 2.3L so we can know how the 4cyl sounds?

@Holley Performance Co. leaving us hanging...I don't want to sound like the local drift nuts!
