Agreed. They can indeed "sound like garbage" if you're expectations are all wrong. It seems that alot of modders just bolt up the same kind of exhaust systems that they would if it were an odd-fire 8 vs an even-fire 6.

Besides, the performance of these EB engines seems to be at a satisfying enough level to not disappoint. Even if one wants more, the power these engines can achieve in the aftermarket is nothing to be scoffed at.

If something subjective as the exhaust sound is the biggest gripe, then that's not too bad.

As far as Ranger goes, with how well the 2.7EB performs in F-150, it should really shine in a smaller and lighter vehicle, especially with a little massaging.

IMHO, the 3.6L is plenty. 308hp is nothing to sneeze at. Ten short years ago, the 5.3L in the Silverado was pumping out 310hp. I have driven my buddy's ZR2 several times now and it is no slouch.

I had a '14 raptor and now DD a '17 raptor. The 17 is better in every way possible, except sound. LOL.

It has a distinctive note and i'll leave it at that.

Sure doesn't stop them from selling though.

I'd guess the ranger will get the 2.7. Maybe a tweaked version. Key will be price.
