hillbillyhammerbl: I did the resonator delete 3 months ago and kept the fac muffler I love it nice rumble at idle screams at wot
1947fordtruck: no, it did not affect either
Paul Jr: Did it affect or gas mileage or power in anyway?
Velcrocivic: Very nice. I am thinking of doing the same thing to my truck. Its a 2012 F150 5.0. Were you able to hear the exhaust in the cab? I'm thinking of putting a Flowmaster on my truck but I don't want something that will get annoying inside of the cab.
1947fordtruck: @PowerInMN it can a guess but you will have to order that same section of pipe from the 2010 model year to do so
it is pretty straight forward. be sure you have a saw-zall. the pipe comes off the cats as a 2.5 inch, goes threw the resonator, then after the resonator there is a clamp and it goes to 2.75 inch. then out of the muffler it gets expanded to 3 inch. and yes you can do it without a lift, when i did it i did not have my level or blocks on and had plenty of room. the resonator is located toward the front of the truck after the "y" pipe and flang.
PowerInMN: @1947fordtruck Thanks for the info. Was the process rather simple to remove the resonator and replace it with pipe - without a lift? Any special pipe requirements?
the 2010's did lack the reasonator. they put it on the 2011 i think because the new engines have a louder sound to them. i mean they are really mean and they sound pretty mean without the resonator.
PowerInMN: The deletion of the resonator reminds me a lot of my former 2010 F150 with the 5.4L - it had quite a "grunt" (stock). My new 2011 5.0 is much less pronounced than my 2010. I wonder if the 2010 lacked a resonator? Here was my 2010: watch?v=DVSO_TT4vDg
nope, completely stock besides the delete, thinkin about doin that once the warrenty expires
dinosfloorcovering: any chip or re-programimg
Christopher Molina: sounds good for "stock" like setup :) good change
