How many horsepower can i expect to gain with these type of exhaust?


  • The main thing you gain is better sound and looks over stock. You may gain a few horses.

    This exhaust sounds mean when accelerating and doesn't sound like any of the other v6 exhausts. If you're on the highway with the windows up there is definitely a hum to it- especially under load, 6th gear acceleration, going uphill, etc. It's not too bad though, I actually like it. My tips aren't lined up 100% to my standard, but close enough that no one else will notice besides me. Trust me, get this exhaust, you will love blowing past people with your windows down so you can hear the bassani sound deflect off other cars. Rear of car looks even better now, too.

    Sounds good but...drone

    After much research I decided to order Bassani. I was looking for an exhaust with a deep sound and not obnoxiously loud, especially when you start the car in the morning. The Bassani offer all that and more...if you are cruising around town. At high way speed they drone like crazy from 2200-3000RPM specially if you are cruising 75-80MPH. They emit this annoying in your ear hum that just drives me crazy. It doesn't even sound like an exhaust to me at that speed. They do sound good if you keep the speed around 60 or RPM goes pass 3000 RPM. Supposedly Bassani mufflers are known for droning, wish I had known before I wasted my money which I'll never get back. I'm planning on ordering the Magnaflow Street Series Axle-Back which also has a deep sound and don't drone.

    Auditory excellence!

    After recently upgrading to a 2012 Mustang from my '08, I decided it was finally time to add the upgrades I never got around to in the first place. Always wanted the tone to my car, but I just never got around to it. So, research began. I looked at all of the "standards;" Borla, Magna, Flowmaster, Rousch and just couldn't find anything I liked. Until I came across some Bassani clips on YouTube. I was immediately hooked and the sound was just was I was looking for (we'll get to that later). Installation was a breeze, sort of. Other reviewers mentioned they've done this without lifting the car and having only spent an hour to an hour and a half on the install. Not the case with my install. While it took just over 2 1/2 hours (a short day for many), I found it pretty tough to break the bracket that held the stock mufflers to the pipes. A little bit of elbow grease took care of that, but once removed I had a tough time actually sliding the stock mufflers off said pipe (Ford REALLY made sure mine were on tight). A little WD40 and what was left of my elbow grease took care of that little issue. Once those two items were addressed, actually installing the Bassani axleback's was a breeze. Now, on to the sound: Awesome.. Just AWESOME! Deep bass tones upon ignition and absolutely NO RASP when getting into higher RPM's (this was a huge deal when I was considering exhaust.. last thing I wanted was to sound like some souped up Honda or Nissan). I considered the Roush axleback setup before I found Bassani, but there was too much rasp in the high RPM's.. something I didn't want. The Bassani's produce an exotic, deep, unique sound for your 'Stang. I've gotten quite a few compliments since installation and it's sure to turn heads. Drone? Virtually none. Drive with the windows down and you're going to hear it, however with the windows up during some highway driving around 70-75mph it's just a little bit louder than stock. Accelerating through the gears sounds phenominal, but the car does quiet down quite a bit when cruising. Honestly, get the Bassani's. They're unique and not really something you've heard on Mustangs before, but don't lose sight of the classic, nostalgic Mustang low end rumble and throatiness. Absolutely NO complaints and nothing but love for the new add-ons. Those polished tips sure make the backend of my car look beautiful, as well!

    Perfect sound for the V6

    This exhaust sounds great on the V6. I am not sure what Roberto is talking about when he said that the drone is too much. (installation fail?) There is barely any drone in the cabin with this system. You can barely hear it under light acceleration. It is still easy to have a normal conversation, use your hands free, or talk to sync. The sound is excellent under hard acceleration and if you Rev it hard. There is no beating the sound of a V8 w/ exhaust and the V6 will never sound as good as a V8. But this system does have an exotic sound and sets your V6 apart from the rest. Looks and Sounds great on my 2012 MCA. I highly recommend it!

    Automatic owners beware

    First of all let me say the fit and finish was excellent. These were very well made and looked amazing on the vehicle. They sound great on start up. The tone is very low, not raspy or overly loud, but they scream at wide open throttle. The deal breaker for me was the horrible drone at 1700-2000 RPM. I've read it is not as bad on the manual shift vehicles, but on my '13 V6 auto it was mind numbing. My wife refused to ride in it, sadly I agreed. Bassani blew me off when I called. I sold them for a loss. Now after countless hours of research I'll be ordering the Borla Touring. I gambled and lost. Automatic owners beware.

    Very Deep

    They sound very deep I mean deep which is good and bad. The good sounds like a v8 since its so deep with a gurgle. The bad is that it vibrates things inside the car around 1500 to 2 grand. Still love em and they sound awesome outside the car. I was looking for a deep exhaust that wasn't overly loud or obnoxious and these fit the bill. However highway I haven't herd any drone their actually really quiet for me there but I also have 273s. Very simple to put on as well no fitment issues or anything. Took 30 mins with a lift.

    2011 Mustang V6 Bassani Axleback

    I listened to nearly every exhaust video on Youtube and it came down to the Magnaflow or Bassani. I chose the Bassani and I am glad I did. The overall quality is great. The finish and the tips are beautiful. The sound is incredible. Great deep sound. It is not obnoxiously loud but when you hit about 3500 to 4000 rpm it really begins to howl. When wound out it has an almost exotic sound.Fairly quiet at idle and at 65 mph, with 2.73 gear, it is hardly noticable. Some people have complained of drone but it's not bad. Maybe it's just me, but I swear the car feels stronger. If you are considering the Bassani you won't be sorry.

    Start Your Engines

    Alright guys this is what you need to know; with the Bassani axel-back exhaust you will feel like you are driving a whole new car, a V8 to be precise. The sound is so richly deep you will catch yourself turning your car on and off again just to hear that beautiful start up purr and wasting so much gas revving your engine at every chance. They truly give your V6 mustang a head turning appeal when you want it but relatively quiet at idol and at low speeds so you don't wake up the neighborhood (unless you want to of course). The truth is that there is some of that dreaded drone that a lot of people can't seem to get past but honestly my fiance says she enjoys the drone because she is constantly aware of the power under the hood. Installation was relatively simple and took me and my friend 2-3 hours on a cold night. The left is slightly misaligned and we could not figure out how to get them both the same but it's mostly a non issue. Overall I love almost everything about this set up and encourage you to enjoy the true sound your beast has hidden away. You will hear all 300HP that your 'stang has to offer. Oh don't forget to toss those huge clunky stock exhaust in the trash!

    Perfect sound! Easy install.

    I wanted something that got loud under acceleration but not bad cruising and this is it. I could not be happier with the way this sounds, a whole lot meaner than stock. Took me less than an hour alone with a jack and two stands, very simple install.

    Above 3k = delicious, below 3k = drone

    if you are interested in getting this set of axle backs, I would recommend removing your mufflers and driving around for an afternoon. If you cant handle that amount of drone, than I would look into other sets. I enjoy the overall sound below and above around 3k rpm, but they do indeed have buckets and buckets of drone around town.

    Nice mellow sound

    I already had a Magnaflow street axle-back on my 2012 V6 with stick shift and absolutely loved it compared to stock but I thought the Bassani might be better yet. The sound clips convinced me that it may be a bit louder, with a nice rumble, but not too loud overall. That's exactly what I got. It's maybe 10% louder than the Magnaflow...I was hoping for possibly 25% to justify the cost though. Bottom line...either one is a huge improvement over stock with the Bassani slightly louder but I probably wouldn't do what I did again because of the cost. The other major improvement I did that I would recomment to anyone with a V6/standard transmission, is the 3:73 gears. I also have a cold air intake with a Bama tune. My daughter has the exact car but with the stock gears .. and it really bugs her that her Old Man's car is faster than hers. It's really fun to wind this thing up with the 3:73 rear and Bassani exhaust. Oh..and she has the Magnaflow exhaust on hers so that's why I think I can make an accurate comparison between the two.

    I purchased this for my 14 auto and am taking them off after 5 days. The drone is unbearable. From 1500-2500 rpm the whole cabin vibrates and you can't even hear the exhaust over the horrible drone. I even went to a local exhaust shop and had them put in MagnaFlow resonators hoping to keep them as I like the overall exhaust sound (when I can hear it) but it did not help at all. And I am 24 so it's not the case of my being too old to tolerate it being "loud". It's not exhaust note, only DRONE

    I swear it's only a v6

    I recently purchased and installed the bassani exhaust on my 2013 mustang v6 and I am very pleased with the deep note that it produces. I have had numerous people approach me at stop lights and mistake my car for a 5.0. Some people don't believe me when I say it's only a v6. Plenty of compliments, real head turner. Just like stock on idle but definitely a different car once rpm rises. Sounds beautiful when you start the engine. Your gonna love how this exhaust sounds in tunnels or when driving close to walls, or when the sound bounces of the cars you pass. The fit is spot on, this was my first exhaust install and I got it done in 2 hours

    Bassani > Roush

    I purchased the Bassani Axle-backs after having the Roush ones on for six months. The Roush were good, but alittle too loud for me. The Bassani's actually produced a lower tone, and are perfect throughout the rev range. I recommend these to anyone who wants a "perfect" sound out of their 3.7

    Great Sound for Axle-back

    I was very picky on how my exhaust should be because if Im going to spend some money, it has to be worth it. I looked at all the exhaust and youtubed everyone and the bassani had the right sound for me. I needed to have no rasp and ive put around 500 miles on these so far and Im very happy with them. They give out a nice deep tone and when you get on it, it sounds like a pure muscle car. At idle its pretty quite and there is hardly much drone in the cabin but when you step on the gas it just roars. This is the closest sound to a borla without the pricetag.

    I measured the loudness.

    When I bought my car there happened to be another one on the lot that had this exhaust on it. I listened to both side by side and liked the low tone of the Bassani. It didn't have a lot of the raspiness that I don't like. Fast forward to watching every sound clip I could find on youtube. Tough to pick one and who knows how much difference there is in person as opposed to a recording, plus taking into consideration as to what is being used to actually record the video. The one thing that you see being asked is "is it loud, etc" Then you start looking at the price difference and your brain tricks you into thinking cheaper price, cheaper product? Needless to say, I decided on the Bassani after listening over and over. I thought I would do the one thing that seemed to be missing in the reviews. I measured the decibel level with an app that I have on my phone. I parked my car in the same spot in my driveway, marked the position, and set my phone up and marked where it was. I started my car with the stock exhaust. 62 db. Revved it to 4000 rpm 74 db. It dipped to 57 db on idle after that. Installed the new exhaust, set up everything at the same distance. Start up, 77 db. 4000 rmp, I hit 90db briefly, mostly 88db. Back to 64 db on idle. Put a couple hundred miles on it. 83 db on initial start up, quickly back to 78 db. 88 db is what I hit at 4000 rpm. Back to 68 db on idle. I haven't noticed any drone. Automatic transmission, so the car shifts so quickly that it never gets noticeably loud in the car. Installation was a breeze. Did it using the slope of my driveway. Took about 90 minutes including the time to dremel off the clamp off the old exhaust. Probably could do it again in 30 minutes now that I have done it. No regrets purchasing this as of yet.
