California Residents: Proposition 65 Warning
The F-150 Raptor is a great truck right from the factory, but it's a little too quiet for our taste, so today we're going to be installing this aFe Mach Force XP Cat-Back exhaust on our 2017 Raptor.
I have John, from aFe. John, what can you tell me about this exhaust?
John: Well, first, thank you for inviting us out here for this. First off, it's a 304 stainless steel 3-inch. We wide pipe into a 3 1/2 in to the muffler, a direct fit. We use Barb hangers. We're putting in a black, high-temp, metallic black powder coat, to give it a different look than everybody else's.
On this particular system, we're doing what we call a high-tuck version. It tucks the tips up inside and you see just the tips comes out, more of a muscle car look.
Freddy: Okay, nice. Now, is this color ... It looks kind of similar to the color that's on the truck. Is that right? It's kind of a similar-
John: We tried to match the rear bumper.
John: But we also offer it in polish tips. A bare, just raw 304, as well as the black.
Freddy: Awesome, let's get to the installation.
Tools you'll need for this installation: A Lift or a Jack and Jack Stands. 3/8" Ratchet. 10 mm Socket. 13 mm Socket. 15 mm Socket. 17 mm Socket. A 15 mm Wrench, and a Flat-Head Screwdriver.
To remove the factory exhaust, we have to start at the back of the truck and work our way front. We're gonna start off by removing this hanger, right here. We'll remove the two, 10 mm nuts. We'll loosen up the 15 mm clamp on both tailpipes. Then, both tailpipes can be removed. Rotate this bracket down out of the way, and pull off the tailpipe. Do the same thing for the other side. Then loosen up these two clamps right here. Each of them have 15 mm nuts. To get to these, you're going to have to get to them up from up top with a ratchet. With both clamps loose, you're gonna slide the muffler towards the rear.
The resonator can be removed next. There's two, 13 mm bolts on the flange side. Loosen the clamp on the passenger side. Now the resonator can slide right off.
With the factory system removed, we're going to relocate this muffler hanger to right here. Then you're just gonna reinstall these clips, right here. Then the bracket. Reinstall your front factory clamp. Then we're gonna start off the installation by installing the aFe Y-Pipe. The Y-Pipe gets secured with the factory bolts and provided nuts.
Since we have the longer wheel-base Raptor, we're gonna be installing this provided extension pipe, then the muffler will go on to this. Place a camp on to the extension pipe. Install your muffler into the rubber hanger, and then over the extension pipe. Tighten down the clamp. Install a clamp over the muffler, then your Y-Pipe into the rubber hanger. Then get your Y-Pipe into the muffler. Place two clamps over the Y-Pipe. Install your passenger side tail pipe. Get it into the rubber hanger and get it into the Y-Pipe.
To make installing the driver's side tailpipe easier, we're gonna remove this hanger. The tailpipe can then be installed. Reinstall the tailpipe bracket along with the tailpipe to secure it. Install the rest of the tailpipe and leave it just like that. Install the hanger on the exhaust tip. Install your exhaust tip. Slide on your hanger, and then bolt it to the truck. Leave this loose for now, and then we're gonna go on to the other tailpipe.
Everything's in place. Now we're gonna tighten everything down, starting at the front then working our way back. And, your installation's finished.
Alright, let's hear how it sounds.
John: So Freddy, what do you think?
Freddy: Honestly, even though these tips were designed to work on the factory bumper, I'm loving the way they look on our truck, even though we have an aftermarket bumper. It sounds a lot more aggressive too, way better than factory. You can find this aFe exhaust, along other aFe products at, CJPonyParts.com.
