Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hi everybody, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com. And this is my detailed review and install of the MBRP XP Series Cat-Back Exhaust System featuring the dual same side exit configuration, available for your 2015 and newer 3.5-liter EcoBoost F-150. All right, in this review, I'm gonna dissect the sound. You can expect when bolting up the XP Series Cat-Back here to your EcoBoost F-150. We're also gonna talk about how the XP differs from the material standpoint and overall construction. And then finally, we will talk about some of the big steps of the actual install process. And right up front, I can tell you that there is gonna be the smallest amount of trimming needed for the lead pipe here depending on your cabin bed size. Still a very straightforward install so, I'm gonna go one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and we will have some more detail by the end of the video. So, I really feel this system's gonna appeal to EcoBoost owners out there who are after a full stainless steel system, one that is three inches in diameter and one that will be beneath that $500 price point, which believe it or not, is not as easy as it may seem. Along with that, this is also gonna be a great choice for the owners out there who are really digging that dual same side exit configuration, one that dumps before the passenger side rear tire and one that does produce a pretty solid tone overall. Let's get into the sound here a little bit further with the XP Series, you guys heard the sound clips, you can ultimately be the judge here. But in my opinion, this thing produced a very enjoyable tone overall on our EcoBoost powered truck. Certainly not the loudest or the craziest system out there, but a nice deep tone and zero rasp, whatsoever. So, going to my wake the neighbor scale, I got this puppy coming in at a strong three out of five on my one to five or one to wake the neighbor scale. A little bit of interior noise, but definitely nothing that will drive you crazy on long trips. But let's move on from the sound here and talk about the XP Series in general, how it's gonna be different from some of the other options in the MBRP's lineup. And I have been on record in other videos saying how much I enjoy just what MBRP does for the truck aftermarket. They give owners a ton of options out there, from different configurations, to different materials and ultimately different costs. So they have a number of different systems that should appeal to just about anybody out there. And with all that said, the XP Series in my opinion is gonna be MBRP's middle of the road offering. It's a great build, solid materials overall with the 409 grade stainless steel, and the price is gonna be very obtainable. Now, if you did wanna take things down a notch, you could always check out their installer series. You're gonna get aluminized steel with that system. And as such, it's gonna be a little bit more affordable. On the other hand, if you wanted to take things up a notch from the XP Series, you can always check out their Pro Series system, you're getting that 304 grade stainless, a premium material with that system. But again, overall on my opinion, I really do think the XP Series is gonna be one of the most popular because it's a nice kind of middle of the road offering, it's a nice compromise. You're getting solid materials with that stainless steel, you're getting a very affordable price at just south of $500. So, we've established that this is full stainless steel when it comes down to materials, 16 gauge, 409 grade to be exact. Again, a nice material in between the aluminized steel on the low side, at 304 grade on the high side. You're also getting three-inch mandrel bent tubing throughout with the XP System here, all exiting out the four-inch flush cut tips, they're kind of staggered by design and they are embossed to that MBRP logo. Now the tip themselves are actually made from 304 grade stainless, which is a nice thing to point out because obviously, this is the part you're gonna see the most, and that 304 grade stainless will be the best at reducing corrosion. Now as I pointed out at the very top of this video, because MBRP designed the system to fit all different cabin bed size F-150s, the smallest amount of trimming may be necessary for your lead pipe here depending on your wheel base. This is not a difficult task guys, as long as you have the proper tools. So, I'm sticking with my guns here, strong one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe an hour or two in the shop or garage before you're making some noise. As far as tools, you're looking at a basic socket set here to do most of the work with this install, also that cutting tool if required. My personal favorite is just the Sawzall fresh metal blade should get the job done. But honestly, you can use whatever you have laying around the garage. I also like to use a little bit of penetrating oil or lubricating spray for some rusty bolts, and to help with those rubber exhaust hangers with installation and removal. Now, as far as the actual install process, well actually after your major cut, go ahead and get to work removing that factory system. It is a little big, so if you have an extra set of hands, now would be a great time to use them. Once that is out of the way, you can get to work installing the new MBRP system, starting from front to back. This isn't a big system so you can easily get this thing in place using the existing hangers and all the hardware provided in the kit. So get it hang first, save your final tightening up to the very end, and you should be good to go. Wrapping things up here, the XP System that we have in this video is one of my top choices for your EcoBoost powered truck on the site, and here's why. First up, let's talk sound. Yes, we all know the EcoBoost trucks don't sound as good as the V8 trucks, but the XP System that we have in this video does a great job of giving the truck just a little bit more of a voice, but without being over the top. Secondly, I'm a huge fan of that dual same side exit configuration before the rear tire, I think it looks really cool. And last but not least, the quality of building materials for the price point, is gonna be very hard to beat. So, that is my review of the XP System from MBRP, which you can find right here at americanmuscle.com.

Innovative Design. The innovative design of this exhaust system will give you peace of mind because it is built to perform. The state-of-the-art design delivers maximum exhaust flow, as well as minimizes exhaust temperatures. That enables your 3.5L EcoBoost F-150 to perform better, last longer, and use less fuel. The system has been engineered and built to the most precise industry standards.

Extensive Testing. Every MBRP exhaust system has been extensively tested for hours on their in-house factory Mustang 1100 AWD-SED Chassis Dynamometer. You will get the most performance out of your vehicle with this exhaust due to the hundreds of miles on road and track that the system was tested on. Exhaust quickly moves out of the system due to the vehicle specific muffler design, minimal bend degree angles, and fully mandrel bent tubing. Utilizing an MBRP performance exhaust system in your vehicle is the first step toward optimizing modules, downloaders, programmers, and getting the most from cold air intakes.

Styling and Sound. With the MBRP exhaust system, you'll get a product that is specifically tuned to receive the most optimal sound from your vehicle. The stamped logo on the tip offers a sophisticated touch. You'll receive excellent performance from a stylish exhaust system.

User-Friendly Installation. Engineered to be a direct upgrade replacement for your F-150's factory exhaust, the MBRP Cat-Back Exhaust easily bolts up with the OEM hangers. Depending on your cab and bed size, some trimming to the piping may be required.

Application. The MBRP XP Series 3 in. Dual Side Exit Cat-Back Exhaust is designed to fit on all 2015-2017 F-150s equipped with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. It is not compatible on Raptors.

    Review from MBRP XP Series 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust - Dual Side Exit - Before Rear Tire (15-17 5.0L)

    Great exhaust if you want to wake the dead.

    Great fit/finish/tone and value... but it is very loud. MBRP should make a version with a resonator as an option. I gave 1 star do to extreme volume of the exhaust.(Loudness) It drones in the interior under light throttle. Most likely I will add a resonator to this if not, I am going back to stock... I can't even hear the stereo clearly.

    I bought the MBRP Pro for 5.0L which is the T304 stainless other than the materials, it's all the same. I have the AEM cold air intake and installing this system, it was louder than expected in the cab; but, I got used to it. I don't feel any power increases over the norm but my MPG went from 18 to 22 which is nice. You really have to play with it to get it to fit like you want and make sure there are no air leaks. I ended up rotating the actual muffler like they have it in the video. I had to cut the mid pipe with a sawzaw to 29.75 inches, that was easy. Once all was setup a couple of days later I did get it all welded up.
