Working on the '14 5.0 I picked up for the wife to be her daily driver. Getting it cleaned up, fluids, pulling off dumb parts. Giving it a solid once over.

Some Ford engineer needs to be taken behind the woodshed and roughed up a bit. This has to be one of the dumbest things I have seen under the hood. I flimsy, ugly, and in the way tube that carries "sound" from the intake tube to the passenger compartment. It's now in the junk pile and oh wow you can actually see the heads, might be time for some nifty coil covers.

Did you find the one that runs from the exhaust to the passenger compartment so you can smell the car running too?

We removed this from my son’s 2011 5.0 as well. It did not sound good.

That sounds excellent!
thats all the mod is, adding the "sound tube" I bought one, way over priced for what it is, i have yet to install it as i have my amp wire running in the hole designed for the sound tube right now, but to each his own i guess

I've got a Fosters on mine....I don't turn on the radio anymore. Doesn't sound good until into boost though, so I can understand on a non boosted 5.0 how it wouldn't sound as good.
