    Picked up a Black Widow muffler over the weekend from fellow FRF member, @A.I.I.Raciing. Had it installed today and chopped off the resonator and dumped the exit with a turndown before the rear axle. Sounds really good with a solid deep tone. Ran a magnapack on my last raptor and I'd say the black widow sounds better. Now the truck doesn't sound like a Prius anymore!

    So posting individual threads is your way of "Not building" a build thread for the street queen?

    Exactly. It's not really a build if it's not in a build thread so I'm safe!

    I just wish Jeff @svc would quit texting me parts I need to order daily. He's blowing my cover. Isn't there a shop somewhere that needs sweeping??

    If only I swept shops as fast as you made up your mind on what light bar you want :specialed:

    PS your driveway is looking like it could use a good sweeping.

    So are you saying Nicole checks your phone? :)

    Glad you like it and hope more Raptor owners get to experience how good these Black Widow Exhaust mufflers sound on our trucks!
    I'm still shocked at how quite your truck was
    With the stock exhaust when you started it yesterday

    So how is the drone at freeway speeds?

    Minimal. With a turndown style exit, I don't think it's possible to eliminate drone all together but the sound that is there at freeway speeds is pretty tame.

    Does installing it the way you did cause us any grief when we have to get smog checked here in CA?
