Rev Off: 2017 Ford GT Titanium Exhaust Vs Standard Exhaust

From the moment Ford revealed the 2017 GT would use an enhanced version of the Ford F-150’s 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost, many loyal company enthusiasts bashed the carmaker for using a V6 in a supercar.

Sure, the engine may not have the exotic soundtrack of the supercharged V8 found on the previous-generation Ford GT, but it delivers enough power to rival the European constabulary. As the video below shows, it also sounds pretty impressive.

This clip compares the optional titanium exhaust system of the GT with the standard system. As you’d expect, the lightweight titanium setup sounds the best, producing some satisfying pops and a race car growl.

However, this isn’t to say the standard exhaust doesn’t sound good. It too delivers a satisfying bark, but doesn’t quite have the exotic vibe of the titanium system.

In either case, we can’t imagine any of the lucky owners complaining.

    To be honest they sounded pretty much identical. Worse, the ‘stock’ exhaust was revved higher, demonstrating a wider audible range for reference than the GT with the titanium exhaust. Overall a really poor example here. A better demonstration would have been to have these two filmed doing a 1/4 mile drag race, one at a time or doing a lap on any circuit. What we have here though, is useless.

    There’s like a…2% difference between them.

    This car sounds like shit, a massive disappointment as far as sports car appeal. To me, engine noise alone is 50% of the sports car’s charm. However, with the GT in particular, it more than compensates with stunning design and performance and I’d still want one if I was of the means.

    Meh

    Not bad for a six, but even better for one muffled by turbos. The standard exhaust sounds deeper, but in an artificial way that is a bit farty (probably from the resonator). Like they are overcompensating for the inevitable “Why no V8” comments. The titanium one is higher pitched, but more authentic and a little bit racy, which suits the car. I say, if you can afford the GT to begin with, definitely get the optional titanium exhaust.

    Sounds like a giant eating chicken noodle soup……..mind you exhaust sound does not win races.
