    I have a Ford F-150 with a 4.6 l v8 and I'm looking to get a good sounding exhaust setup without spending a ton of money. Anybody got any input or experience with this feel free to share!

    If you don't care about dual exhaust, just replace the muffler with whatever you want. Flowmaster, magna flow, etc. Get a nice stainless tip and be done. I've got an mbrp cat back on my 5.4 f150. Not real loud, but nice sound.

    Could you provide a link to a magnaflow mufflers for sale that'll fit my truck? I can't seem to find any anywhere?

    Not sure if they make a direct fit. You may have to add a piece of pipe to compensate for the huge factory muffler. Any exhaust shop can weld it up for cheap. Rule of thumb is shotrer the muffler, the louder it will be. I will do little looking and post up shortly.

    4.6's sound good without any mufflers. I had one that I split after the last cat and just straight piped out the rear with 4" tips. Pretty loud but it sounded great.

    Buddy has the same motor with a Thrush Welded.
    Sounds good.
    Not too loud so as to PO the neighbors.
