Review & Install Video
Hey guys, Jeff with American Muscle.com, here with my detailed review of the MBRP installer series single side engine exhaust cap back, available for your five liter powered F150 and your choice of either a natural finish or a black powder coat.
Now the installer series from MBRP is designed to be either budget or entry level exhaust system, and it's going to be for those new F150 owners out there who are looking to make a lot more noise, but not really spend a whole lot of money in the process. Now the system I have with me here today is their single side exit system. It's going to dump the exhaust in the factory location, and at the time of this video it's going to be one of the most affordable cap back options on the site.
MBRP does offer a dual exit system from the installer series, but more material means more money, but it is available if you're looking for it. Breaking down the kit a little further here guys, we'll notice three inch mandrill bin tooting from tip to tip. Again, that aluminize steel material that we just talked about. The dual include a three and a half inch tip embossed with the MBRP logo, you're also going to get a single bullet style muffler and resonator here with the single installer system, which is going to help round up the sound a little bit, and keep some of the rack and drone down.
You know, with that being again guys this is a single exit system. So it is going to dump out behind that passenger rear tire, just like your factory system. And as you heard at the top of this video, this thing definitely has some good sounds, so for that reason, we'll call it a strong 3 out of 5, on a 1 to 5 or 1 to wake the neighbors scale. It's not going to be the loudest system out there, but it'll definitely give you some good tone. Moving on into the install, now guys for the most part half back systems on the new F150 is pretty much a walk in the park. There's a couple of bolts, and for the most part it puts itself together.
That being said, it is a little cumbersome, so we'll give it a 1 out of 3 wrenches on our overall difficulty meter, maybe an hour or two of your time, depending on your lift set up. Now keep in mind you might have to cut MBRP does make this system again fit a wide variety of trucks, so depending on your bed and cab size, you might have to break out the saw while I turn this thing up a little bit. For instance we did, we had a super crew, five and a half plug bed, we had to trim a little bit off to fit our factory rig here, but again, not a big deal whatsoever, figure an hour or two, using some basic hand tools, and you should be making some noise in no time.
All right guys at the end of the day the MBRP single exit installer series is a great buy. Sure the materials might not be as nice as some of the more premium options out there, but when you look at the tone, you look at the fit and that rock bottom price, it's a great value for someone that's looking to make the entry into an aftermarket exhaust system, but not make a huge investment into a more premium brand. So be sure to check the MBRP, half back for your F150 right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
