I put the Borla Dual-Exhaust Rear-Exit Cat-Back on my V-10 F-350 4X4
SuperDuty. I like it a lot. Everyone that notices comes up to me and says
that the dual exhaust out the back looks great! Sounds great too!

Subject: FTE 97up - Gibson Exhaust

I put a Gibson 3" single cat-back system on my 97 F150 SC 4X4 w/5.4. It
was a miserable task. This should have been almost a direct replacement
job that would take no longer than an hour. Well, after 3.5 hours of
wrestling this thing and 3 calls to their technical support line, I
finally ended up taking the partially completed truck and the tailpipe
and turnout pipe to a local exhaust shop. We had to cut 9" off the
tailpipe and re-bend it where it goes into the muffler to make it fit.
It cost $30 to make the modifications so it would work. I think there
must be a design problem for the Ford units at Gibson. I sent them a
letter detailing the problems. I am curious to see how they respond.

My brother had to do some cutting also on his
92 Bronco for the Gibson single exit.
I'm going to return the Gibson and try a
Flowmaster dual rear exit with the 50 series muffler.

Thanks

Vaughn,
Let us know how it turns out. I have been considering the Flowmaster
also. On my last F150 I went the Gibson route. I was not impressed with the
way it assembled either.

Good Luck
Landen

In a message dated 99-08-22 15:51:29 EDT, you write:


you would think these Gibson guys could get it pretty close to right after
all they make is truck exhaust i think. Check out FLowmaster, Dynomax ,
Bassani (little pricey but nice) i had their cat back and Y pipe on my F150
(great fit), they have alot of applications. I am glad i dont have a gas
truck anymore! :)

My 5 in. cat back from Hypermax fit pretty good, all we had to do is cut pipe
to length we wanted for our app., they give you enough straight for a Crew
cab long bed it looks like. Also has to reposition the spare tire a bit so
it wouldnt be on top of it. Other than that the 5in Diesel '99 PSD kit is
all welded together bends, no kinks from a tube bender.

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - Cat-back exhaust....

Hey does the V10 with the new exhaust have a really low pitch sound like the
V8 or does it really sound like a 4 or 6cyl?

And how does it take off? compared to a V8?

I am going to buy a new 250 but don't know what engine to pick!

would appreciate your info.

thanks

No doubt you'll get plenty of opinions but I think you'll be much more
satisfied with your own - go to the dealer and drive the combination of
truck you hope to purchase then YOU'LL know exactly what it's like.

Thanks,

david

Actually, because you have more explosions per crankshaft revolution, the
sound is different from a V-8. Kind of like an airplane engine instead of a
"burble". Really nice, though.
