    I would not be happy living with that noise every day.

    If I had a Gen 2, I'd go for the quietest exhaust possible (stock) and use a VTA BOV setup. At least the turbos sound like turbos should sound.

    The Gen2 Raptor is the first truck I have ever owned that did not have a V8. I am not a loud exhaust kind of guy and the only truck I every changed the exhaust on was a 1997 F150 RCSB 4x4. I put a pair of Walker Dynomax Super Turbos under it and made it a true dual exhaust with lightning style tailpipes exiting in front of the passenger side wheel. It was quiet for the most part but, had a very nice V8 sound at higher RPM. A V8 just naturally sounds good though. The V6 sound is OK if the raspy braaap is muffled well. But, I personally don't think the sound of a loud V6 engine matches the persona of the Raptor. Stock, the sound is tolerable and unobstrusive. But, the V6 engine note is not the kind of sound you want to amplify IMO.

    This debate will go on for years.

    I literally only bought a raptor because of these videos:

    I have it and I'm happy. But I also drive an R8 with titanium 3 inch exhaust and a screaming v10.......

    Im biased.

    A neighbor kid got a Ford Probe GT V6 with civic exhaust and the first time I heard him start it I thought someone started my Raptor, and I got stock exhaust. Lol

    I have listened to just about every Gen2 Raptor exhaust combination available. Hours of
    recordings. Wanting to like it. But, they all sound like a V6....only more so. I would
    absolutely hate driving around in the 1-2K RPM range constantly hearing that purring V6
    (as opposed to a rumbling V8) sound incessantly reminding me I have a V6. Listen to the
    audio closely; pay attention to the low RPM purring sound. That is what you will be hearing
    most of the time. Sorry. But no thanks.
