Here's your solution!

Coming from a 2011 5.0 daily driver mustang, that had full CAI, Boss intake manifold, offroad xpipe and bassani catback (yes the CA Air Resources Board loved me as well as my neighbors when I left for work at 5am); I found the 2018 Raptor exhuast underwhelming. Not bad but just understated.

Note: the only way to make a 6 cyl. sound like an 8 cyl. is to add 2 more cylinders. You can make it louder, raspier, and even slightly deeper...but nothing will make it sound like a v8.

I come from the world of Mustangs ('96 v6, '99 v6, '05 GT and '11 GT) where arguments on the merits of modding a v6 versus simply buying a GT (v8) rival the Gen 1 v Gen 2 wars here. So I appreciate the position that money spent on a cat back for a v6 truck (TT or not) could be spent elsewhere.

However, The thing I do like about the FP Touring exhaust (made by Borla) is that it's a slight improvement in tone and volume to the Raptor's exhaust...without drone or being obnoxious (i.e. ATAK). Not a swipe at anyone who likes the ATAK (I know what obnoxious sounds like from my last vehicle - just not my cup of tea anymore), I just don't see the point in making a v6 "louder". Whether it's a 4cyl. suburu or 6 cyl. mustang.

If it's within your budget, I can only say positive things on the FP Touring. Great product and the sound is a definite improvement, without being over the top and "trying" to be a v8.
The problem isn't V6 vs V8, it is N/A vs TT. Here is one of the most iconic V8TTs ever made and it is driving through a tunnel for added effect.

How gloriously awful does that sound? The turbos are taking energy out of the exhaust stream and that is a bigger issue than the 2 missing cylinders.

Says the guy who claimed my 2017 Raptor would be worthless right now because of the new V8 engine option. LOL.

If I remember right, the big differences were cams and tune.

lol on a side note, a buddy of mine (who is quite a bit younger) said he heard a jenny the other day with an exhaust and he said it sounded "sick" (as in it sounded really good)

I just installed the Corsa Extreme... it’s ok. I Ike the sound more than the Borla I heard the other day but that was only sitting still and not under load. I don’t find either to be nearly as loud as some have suggested, cruising and idle they’re both noticibly louder but not distracting. Cold starts are certainly louder but the stock setup is so quite in comparison that’s why it’s noticable. For me, the Corsa sounds good (not great) at WOT, aside from that it’s a lot of money for debatable improvement. I don’t think I’ll take it off but I’m not ruling it out.
