That sounds pretty good. I can hear the wastegate or BOV in that video too.

I'm really looking forward to it. It doesn't have the raspy quality that a lot of the aftermarket exhausts for this truck do. And they didn't go out of their way to make it sound "like a truck rumble". It's much closer to the Ford GT sound, in my opinion. Which I'm cool with, because race truck.

When you install it, post a video. I would like to hear/read actual customer reviews.

Absolutely, man. I've been talking with Corsa for a couple of months now over this and I'm getting one of the first production units they have... next month. lol.

Nice! The Borla exhaust sounded good in their videos. But I would like to hear real world stuff.

Have you seen the LB in person? I actually wasn't a huge fan in person. The Magnetic was awesome. It's probably the only color that the flares, bumper, etc being color matched look good IMHO.

I agree. I worked at a Ford Dealership recently and was very disappointed in LB when it started coming out on cars. A little too teal for my taste. Magnetic is beautiful.

I love V8s, but Ford made the right call with the Eco-Boost, no question. Congrats!

I saw a LB 17' Raptor this weekend and loved it. I'm happy I went with it.

Glad to hear! Different strokes for different folks. I know a lot of guys that love the desert sand color for last gen's Raptors and I personally couldn't stand it. Who knows? Maybe LB will grow on me and when it comes time to pick one up, end up with an LB one. I'll shoot you a message if that's the case. :thumbsup:

After seeing both the blue and the red in person, I'd have probably went with either one of them over black. But since I ordered mine before they were out, I went with the "safe" choice I knew I'd like. lol. I'm glad you're happy with it, man!

I'm debating dropping the $2k Raptor Technology package. I really don't care about lane departure warning/lane keeping/auto cruise control.

The auto high beams and rain sensing wipers are nice, but I think I'd rather spend that $2k on a bumper or Toyo MT 35s.

Having the the module/cover behind the rear view mirror (covering up the abomination of wires back there) is worth the $2k.

The dealer told me he submitted the change but since it was scheduled for July he wasn't sure it would go through.
