    2017 F-150 Ford Raptor exhaust sound clip from the Mint 400. This is a "production mule" truck so the exhaust could very well be different on the actual production model.

    I think its a good starting point if this is in fact the production exhaust. I want to hear it with a resonator delete. Its def not an ideal sound but maybe someone out there will figure out a good formula for the new 3.5.

    I saw the video and the exhaust note is still not a deal breaker for me at this point. A few cosmetic issues continue to be the only real issues I have with the Gen2.

    It was nice to see something new out there on the '17 Raptor, that is for sure!

    I have had many 4,6,5&8 cyl. cars and trucks NA, turbo, & supercharged. The best sounding cars were my supercharged 98 cobra and 3 turbo 5 cyl Audis and an STi. All with upgraded exhaust.

    As for trucks well I tend to leave them stk and the V8 Raptor and Sububan sounded way better then my Landcrusiers. I am not sure about the stk exhaust yet but indications are I would want to change it. I have heard some good and a lot of bad V6 turbo vehicles over the years. I will wait to hear one in the wild to judge. Funny enough I am in metro Detroit and I have yet to see one and that is unusual to not see models on the road this close to production

    Welllll!! I think I don't like that sound, I am sure they were aloud to modify the exhaust. The aftermarket has their work cut out for them. We need more GTR and less 80s GM baretta. Just my opinoin.

    Definitely not a bad start, and there will be aftermarket exhaust suport pretty quick I would guess. I prob will end up doing a custom setup though, as the stock exit location looks funky to me, and that will be the only way to really tune the sound. I did a full custom 3 inch straight through exhaust on my ExSport and you can get the 3.5 very loud and throaty if you want the noise.

    I'm not too impressed with the sound, but I'm old school still, I know a lot of others will "hear" past this and love the trucks power
