Great Sound, Ample Power. Roaring with a deep, predatory, highly-aggressive exhaust note when you’re starting your F-150 or accelerating, the Heartthrob 4" Aluminized Cat-Back Single Side Exit Exhaust subsides to a near-stock sound level when you’re cruising at a constant speed. Regardless of whether it’s bellowing its defiance or running deceptively quiet, the Heartthrob Cat-Back delivers plenty of augmented power. By letting exhaust streak out through 4" tubing, past open mandrel bends and a free-flowing welded muffler that deletes the factory resonator, the Heartthrob generates up to +45 horsepower and +58 ft/lbs of torque by clearing the engine of stifling backpressure. This Cat-Back system is 49-state legal and improves your F-150’s throttle response and shifting smoothness, along with its fuel mileage – by as much as 2 miles per gallon.

Straight Forward, Tough Design. Built with a no-frills, no-nonsense spirit in the United States, the Heartthrob 4" Cat-Back Exhaust features 4” aluminized steel tubing throughout, keeping costs down while providing anti-rust and anti-corrosion properties. The muffler is also aluminized steel and features a free-flow design to match the unrestricted mandrel bends of the piping. The exhaust tip exits in the standard location behind the rear passenger-side tire.

Simple Installation. The Heartthrob Cat-Back Exhaust System can be installed completely with hand tools, needing no welding, or drilling. The factory mounting points are used, while a full set of hardware and clamps is included with each exhaust system. Depending on your cab and bed size, some cutting to the tubing may be required.

Application. The Heartthrob 4" Aluminized Cat-Back Single Side Exit Exhaust is made to all cab and bed sizes available for the 2011-2014 3.5L EcoBoost F-150s.

How much louder does this exhaust make it inside the cab at 70 mph?

ColeS

  • The Heartthrob 4 in. Aluminized Cat-Back Exhaust System will be louder than stock, but should provide tolerable exhaust volume levels at highway speeds.

Will I lose some of the low-end I've heard that you can

JesseW

  • This Heartthrob 4 in. Cat-Back Exhaust System should not cause a decrease in low-end power. With the larger diameter piping it will decrease back pressure significantly. If your in an area where you are susceptible to low power, such as in a high altitude area, a tune would certainly help with this exhaust.

Will tuning be needed or required by changing the stock exhaust to the 4" heartthrob on 3.5 eco boost 2013 f-150

  • With this Heartthrob exhaust, tuning is not required for proper function. The vehicles computer is capable of compensating for the added airflow and exhaust.

    Let me start out by saying that this is a V6 truck it will never have the deep rumble of a V8 big block. However, I think that heartthrob has done an excellent job in providing a quality product at an affordable price point. the exhaust noise is great. I get the hear my motor now. Turbo spool is much quicker and at cruising speeds I can barely tell its not stock exhaust. Overall this is a great quality product that I would recommend to anyone that wants to hear their motor, doesn't want to break the bank, and pick up a few numbers to boot.

    Great Sound and Performance

    Price really wasn't an object. I wanted a good performing product at a fair price. I didn't like any of the dual exhaust sound clips with the on the 3.5 EB. The 4" single sounds, looks, fits and performs great.

    Do not buy.

    All I can hear in the cab is drone. I can't say its a bad set up, its just makes the worst drone sound at anytime you are gaining speed. Idle and cruise aren't so bad, But if you are traveling 70mph and trying to have a conversation, the drone is going to be mildly in the middle of it. I have extreme buyers remorse. At this point I am looking for someone with a new truck to trade my exhaust system for their stock system. (willing to give this thing away just to get a stock system) Lots of noise, no power gain. Like I said, there is nothing to fault HeartThrob about, its just a drone'y beast in my experience. Makes the engine sound like its working really hard during normal acceleration. I can kinda hear the turbo's a bit more, but the drone drowns out much else. I can't say I noticed any type of performance gain. Put your money toward an intake or programmer instead, that's where I noticed the biggest gains in my experience.

    Pure awesomeness

    Watched a lot of videos and wanted quiet but performance and this was the ticket! Great value perfect fit and finished the look wit the 4” to 5” MBRP exhaust tip. Noticeable boost in performance. If you’re looking for loud this isn’t what you want. Little rumble and better turbo noise GET IT!

    Installed the system yesterday. Easy to install. Comes with everything you need. Installed in about an hour once the stock exhaust is removed. Good sound and great performance.

    Not Very Loud, Difficult Installation

    I have a full size F150 with an extended cab and I still needed to cut about 6" off to make it fit. The instructions were terrible. They were only small black and white photos with no step-by-step instructions. Basically you get parts and bad pictures with no install help. It took hours to install. The noise is very subtle from stock. Not much of a change. I would not recommend this one for the difficultly level and little change in sound.

    I am happy with this product, although one of the hanger brackets was incorrect for the last one and I had to go to a muffler shop to purchase a clamp that is why am only giving it four out of five stars .

    Review from Heartthrob 4 in. Aluminized Cat-Back Exhaust System - Single Side Exit (15-18 2.7L EcoBoost)

    Love it

    Over all the shipping was really fast and as the product goes , it was easy to install like any other exhaust but one key thing is to use a impact drill on the band clamps because they need to tighten ALL the way down or the exhaust will fall apart (I know from experience) but I love the deep sound .

    Review from Heartthrob 4 in. Aluminized Cat-Back Exhaust System - Single Side Exit (15-18 2.7L EcoBoost)

    Sounds great on ecoboost

    Little tough installing in the driveway of my house with just hand tools, but once it was on it made a world of difference both on sound and in performance. I have never had a cat back exhaust that you could feel a difference right after install. Once everything was bolted in place my daughter and I went for a spin and even she could notice a difference.
