My new `23 EcoBoost engine was too quiet to even hear with the OEM single exhaust so I added a MBRP S5223 dual exhaust kit (cat-back) and I like the results. I can hear it fine now but it's not really "loud" until I get on the throttle hard. I hate droning exhaust and the MBRP duals do not disappoint. There is no detectable drone in my cab...! The single muffler is "straight-through" for free flow and there is no resonator, nor is one needed. Installation from my garage floor was easy (even for me at almost 80 years old) and all parts fit properly although the instructions required some common sense interpretation as they were not entirely clear about a couple of minor details.
I can recommend this MBRP kit--it is certainly not obnoxiously loud but it does generate a cool "performance" tone....as far as turbo 4-bangers go. :p
Cheers from the Smoky Mountains!

My credo
"220, 221, whatever it takes."
Guy at the Truck Nationals had a '21 with that system, I asked him if it droned and he said no.

I got the single Side Armor Pro. I love it and highly recommend If your one of the those older guys needing to bring back the Good old days with babies and a wife. It rumbles soft at low idle and cruise. Even quiet some times. Little throttle will get you some good feel and sound but nothing annoying. When you get on it, everyone is going to know about it. Again, it is a aggressive sound but not pitchy. No hiccups or Burps, or what ever these Ricers kid like. Refined power sound is what I think. More like shooting a AR vs the slappy AK, but it is deep sounding.

My credo
Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
Exhaust tone elitists are absolutely worse than fake duals 😆😆
