Q: Exhaust Upgrade?
 
Just purchased a demo, 2008 Harley Saleen 105 Anniversary F150 Supercrew, to go with my 2008-105 Ultra.
The truck sounds good now, but I would like a little better (louder, throaty) sound, without going overboard. Suggestions please, and thank you in advance.

You could pick up one of the rear exit S331 exhaust kits on Ebay for $399. They were made by Edelbrock for Saleen. They sound great!

Most people get the Magnaflow side exit like the ones on the Lightnings. That is what I have and I love them!

You could do the Saleen side exit im selling on eBay. It looks good on a SCrew....

Not to rain on your parade drum, but to the original poster, I would advise against this. The system sounds great, but it has awful flow characteristics and a terrible drone...at least it does to most of the S331 owners out there. Although, it is a cheap aftermarket exhaust upgrade.

Thats funny, I have never had any customers complain of any of those qualities, In fact, I have had numerous S331 change their Magnaflow system to this system because this one doesn't drone. But hey, everyone's entitled to their opinion...

Hello All I am new on here and I was wondering about upgraded exhaust. I purchased a 2008 Ford F-150 Harley Saleen supercrew and I was thinking about going with the S331 Supercrew exhaust side exit but I heard you would have to move the fuel filter and or motify the exhaust somehow. Does anybody know if this is all true or is there a different way to do it? Thanks

Light02atl 09-19-2009 09:21 AM

I have never heard of moving the fuel filter. I will have to check and see where the fuel filter is. I believe it is on the inside frame rail. The side exit runs on the outside. I have always been told that it is a direct bolt on with no other modifications. While the cheap price may be enticing, the side exit exhaust setup on the saleens is mediocore at best. several of us are getting rid of it.

Jericho107 09-19-2009 10:09 AM

Do you know what you are going for then?

Light02atl 09-19-2009 10:15 AM

check the s331 forum on here. There are several threads about exhaust.

Jericho107 09-19-2009 11:27 AM

Ok sounds good. I'm looking for a deep sounding exhaust what would you recomend

Jericho107 09-30-2009 08:34 AM

If anyone had to choose between the magnaflow side exit exhaust or the saleen rear exit exhaust which would you guys choose??

GunzNSkoal 09-30-2009 11:54 AM

I'm going with dynatech headers with magnaflow high flow cats true duel coming out in front of the rear tire similar to the S331.

Jericho107 09-30-2009 01:58 PM

What is the model number of the magnaflow exhaust?

Light02atl 09-30-2009 02:11 PM

each system is equally as bad as the other.

I will be ordering a complete American Racing kit soon ($1300 with cats - before ya ask :) )

I installed the magnaflow DIDO and had the dreaded drone as I posted a while back. Cut that off and installed the Hooker areo's and X pipe and ran the exhaust out both side behind the TIRE and have been pleased with the sound and the looks with no DRONE.

you got a saleen exhaust?.....and no drone??.... hmmm. Your the exception my friend. My drone vibrates my freakin teeth out.

08chrgduphd 11-20-2009 10:59 PM

Yup no drone at all in fact crusin i wish it was a little louder
but for that kind of money u just cant beat it

08chrgduphd 11-21-2009 02:33 PM

Exhaust drone
 
I think there is some mix up on this saleen system
i have the rear exit system #56446
and on a f150 harley sc with 5.5ft bed the muffler ends up just after the back of the cab and with the exits all the way back at the bumper there is no drone

again in fact i wish it was alittle louder at crusin speeds

there is a set on ebay right now for 189.00 starting bid

you can also go on f150 forum and you will get same answer
from those guys

now on a s331 extended cab there may be drone but that i cant confirm all my friends have screws and we all have this system
that is where i first heard it

thx sorry so long but i just wanted to get my point across

Freaking exhaust
 
Learned at the beginning that the HARLEY and the SALEEN had different exhaust. I wondered about the post on buying the SALEEN EXHAUST AND no DRONE. After seeing the SALEEN set up I see the reason for the DRONE. On a S/C I can see even more of the DRONE, esp. with a cover over the rear bed. Just like a box for bass.

owner of a 07 Harley , Saleen SC and I am looking to replace the headers. what are my options?
