You may want to look at Gibson.  They're cheaper than Borla, have a
lifetime warranty, and have the sound you're looking for.

  Hi All,

  What a great newsgroup for us Ford Owners.  Thanks for all the hard work by all involved to get it up and keep it running.

  I too am looking for a nice dual exhaust system for my 2000 F150 5.4 Truck so you guys that have already added this option, let us know what's best.

  Thanks,

  BigMike

for.

I'm using the Flowmaster cat back muffler system on my 2000 F150, 5.4.  This
is the dual outlet on either side of the truck system, 17-226 I believe is
the Flowmaster part #. It's not a stainless steel setup, although the tips
on either side are. Installation went very well.  Everything fit as it was
supposed too.  All the hangers were right there.  Sound is like what you
described you are looking for, nice tone in the lower RPM range, really
wakes up when you step on it.  Nothing too obnoxious though.  I believe the
system is a little louder than the Gibson.  I'd recommend it.

Hi,

I have a '97 F-150 with the 4.2, 2wd, automatic.

Lately, when just starting up in first, or doddling around in second, I get
a cheap sounding cheap metal rattle. I must have my foot on the accelerator
for this to happen.

I've rubber-malleted everything under the truck and found nothing.

If I just race the truck in neutral, it sounds fine. But if I drive it in D
or rev it in Drive with my foot on the brake, it rattles.

What can it be? Catcon? Muffler, some linkage problem?

Thanks in advance for the help.
