Question New Truck - Roush Exhaust Removal?

Hey Everyone. Been a while since I've posted on here. But I just traded in my 2010 F150 FX4 SuperCrew with a 5.4 and 155,000 miles for a 2013 FX4 with the Ecoboost. I know its not a significant age upgrade, but everything else is. Only 50k miles on it and looks great. Has lots of upgrades. The only one I'm NOT crazy about is the Roush exhaust. I seem to follow the school of thought most on here do; you just don't put an exhaust on a V6. No reason to showcase that exhaust note. It appears to be the full system (cat back). It has an ok sound. Nothing like my 5.4 with a Borla had. So I'm wondering what I should do. Should I remove it? Do I try to find a stock system and put it on? Do I remove part of it but keep mid piping and just replace the muffler and beyond? Obviously, I'm getting used to it at this point, but still just not my favorite sound. And truth be told, not a huge fan of the side by side dual tips coming straight out the back on a 4x4. Thanks for any suggestions!

You shouldn't have a problem finding someone who would want to trade their stock exhaust for your Roush.

I would not assume that.

Haha. Thank you. My fault for assuming. I was more just asking if there are performance gains that justify keeping the exhaust or parts of it (I do have a tuner) rather than returning it to stock.

Not really. The stock exhaust is fairly low restriction.

The only thing I ever got from the Dronemaster , I mean Roush Exhaust was a little more deaf.

If it displeases you, you probably should remove it.
