Loud Aggressive Sound. Add a touch of Borla excellence to your 3.7L V6 Mustang with an "ATAK" Axle-Back exhaust system for an extremely aggressive muscle car sound that is not for the faint of heart.

ATAK. Acoustically-Tuned Applied Kinetics, is Borla's newest technology that produces the highest available dB (decibel) levels to pump the volume while retaining clarity of sound, avoiding distortion typically found in louder exhausts.

High Quality Construction. Constructed from ultra smooth mandrel bent 2.25" stainless steel tubing to improve exhaust flow, the Borla Axle-Back exhaust system features two race inspired "ATAK" mufflers with 4.5 inch polished stainless steel slant tips for aggressive sound and impressive looks.

Application. This Borla Stainless Steel Exhaust System is specifically designed to be a direct bolt on upgrade reusing factory hardware for the 2011-2014 3.7L V6 Mustangs.

  • This specific exhaust will fit the V6's only, but for a Borla Atak that will fit your GT, check out this page:

2013 v6 mustang. Should I get borla axle back, or spend more for catback atak? What are the pros and cons? If i decide to get axel back, can it easily be installed to stock pipes?


  • The axle backs will install easier then the cat-backs will. Both exhausts will sound great however the cat-back will have a slight different exhaust tone and a slight difference in power as well for a rather larger sum of money then the axle backs. Overall it would be your personal opinion on which one would work best for you.

Popping sound I've seen a lot of videos on Youtube of the axle-back Borla ATAKs and it seems every time they let off the gas there is a popping sound. A couple of the videos I've seen didn't have that popping sound. Does that sound go away with time? or how do one gets rid of it?


  • It does go away after it gets warmed up and sounds really nice after break-in

borla atak vs frpp on automatic? I just recently got my 2013 v6 in auto, been doing some research and I'm in between borla atak and frpp, what would be the best sound on my v6 since it is automatic. I love a deep growl...i eventually want to add some bbk lt headers and a catted xpipe. THANKS!!


  • I have a 2012 V-6 Automatic myself. I have equipped mine with the BBK Long Tube headers and the BBK Catted X-pipe along with a set of Flowmaster replacement mufflers, all parts purchased from American Muscle. Personally this is the set-up I like along with the CAI I added. The Borla Atak sounded way to tinny sounding for my taste, along with a price I was not willing to pay. I like the system on mine. Around town it's not to annoying to my neighbors and when I get on it, It performs beautifully and then it belts out a good roar. At hi-way speed it is not the least bit annoying. Like I said, I like the system I installed. Hope this helps.

These or the ATAK cat back? Ihave a new 2013 MCA edition v6 stang and i want to do some serious mods to it over the next few years and was wondering what the better move is these axle backs or the ATAK cat backs?


  • well if you do not mind the extra nice and money, then cat-backs are always more beneficial than axle backs. Axel-backs are basically just for sound with a bit of decrease in weight and maybe a little bit of hp gains, but cat-backs dwarf the axle-back's benefits. so if you are looking to get the most out of your pony, cat backs are the way to go.

    Fair quality! Amazing sound!

    The Borla Ataks are a great axleback exhaust system to break necks and set your mustang apart from the other v6's out there. Figment was perfect, and installation took no longer then an hour. I recommend loosening the midpipe to allow more mobility of the piping to help fit it to your desired look, and then tighten it back up. The sound is great at idle (not too loud, not too soft). After 2500rpm it opens up to this beast of a sound that no video you watch can do this product justice. Shifting at any point gives you the crackles and pops that will put a smile on your face; day in and day out. Shipping was fast, and packaging was immaculate.

    Disappointing from all the Hype

    These axlebacks are very nice don't get me wrong, but I suppose they are the most "hyped" axleback for the V6 Mustang. The package came from AmericanMuscle in less than 2 days, and was packaged very well 5 stars. The finish on the chrome was flawless, and the installation took less than an hour with a friend. These axlebacks sound AMAZING when you first start your car up and if you give it a little romp to 2500 rpm and back down. Cruising around town they can get a little loud if you go up hills, and the exhaust note bounces off the concrete buildings gets somewhat buzzy. The disappointment is when you really are in mid-range power like 2nd to 3rd gear 40 mphish. They really make the 3.7 sound like a honda with a soup can on it. The WRX exhaust sounds way deeper than this.. I would probably recommend the S-type exhaust, maybe the ATAK too loud and the 3.7 V6 just makes it sound ricey. If I could buy it over again I would get the touring or S-type exhaust.

    throaty and mean!!

    Shipped on a monday, got here on friday and i live in arizona, thats good in my book. Took me, a 17 year old, an hour and a half to take off the stocks and slip on the ATAKs all with out a jack. Once you get first stock off the second one is much easier. Now for the symphony of the project, the sounds is outstanding. Pretty close to the sound in the clip here on american muscle. But the video is missing that UMPH, its just there. The Borla ATAKs sound much better than i thought and i think its made my foot a little heavier on the road haha! Literally no drone what so ever, but when you want the loud, ors right there waiting for you to put your foot down! Looks are great with the polished tips. Fiitment was perfect, much easier than stock. Overall fantastic exhaust, only had it 5 days and already gotten 7 comments on it! Greatly recommended!

    great sound

    when i was looking to re due my whole exhaust the mufflers were the hardest part for me to decide on, didn't want to spend to much but wanted the sound and flow i thought should go on my car. mine are backed by some bbk headers and bbk off road x-pip. great combination and sounds mean. I'm glad i went the extra few bucks to get the sound i wanted. i listened through all the sound clips and i refused to put anything else on. a mod i would recommend to anyone.

    The Borla ATAK is worth every penny and then some. Yes it can be loud, yes it sounds sick; and I'm loving it. I didn't like how quiet the factory exhaust. After listening to the sound clips here on AM and on YouTube there was no question which axle back I wanted. The only regret I have is waiting to get it.

    Best exhaust note ever. AM is awesome.

    AM is awesome , and borla Atak are the bomb. I did 2 month research before i went to buy this, because i am very particular about note. Ataks are the f bomb. Deep note. AWESOME. WARNING: they will make a popping sound at high rpm. My research online came to the conclusion that all atak's will make popping sound. So make a note of this before you buy. AM is awesome , and borla Atak are the bomb.

    Absolutely Amazing

    I had done extensive research on different exhausts for my 2011 v6. Previously on my 02 v6 I had Flowmaster 40s which sounded fantastic, but I knew with dual pipes all the way through the car on the 11 that the sound potential was so much more. The Borla ATAK is by far the best exhaust I have heard on any v6 Mustang, and better (in my opinion) than a lot of the GT Exhausts that are offered from companies such as Flowmaster and Magnaflow. The sound is aggresive, there is that nice muscle car pop when you rev, and no video can really do the sound justice. I had the exhaust put on professionally, so I cannot speak to the ease of installation, but this is the best investment I have made in a car, period.

    First of all great care and handling on AMs part, the exhaust came with a Borla hat, decals, and instructions. This exhaust is ridiculously loud at WOT, if you are going to shell out on the S-type you might as well just go with THE ATAKs for a better aggressive sound. I have the Airaid CAI and 89P tune, all from AM and Bama. Add that with the ATAKs and you are rolling deep! Not to mention when you add BBK headers and O/R x-pipe its just going to be ridiculous! At idle cruise speed in town @25mph, its super quiet, but when you push it to 2nd gear at 40mph its OPENS UP LIKE NOBODYS BUSINESS. This is probably the BEST investment exhaust wise for your V6. And trust me once you install these, you are gonna have alot of other racers wanting a piece of you lol. The exhaust is beautifully crafted with 4inch stainless steel tips. Now for the install: you are going to have to remove the whole two rubber brackets in the rear. if you dont, then you are gonna have a lot of trouble removing the stock exhaust from the muffler once your loosen the C-clamp. ITS RECOMMENDED YOU BUY some STRONG lubricant to remove the hangers and make sure to have a buddy to help you remove and install the mufflers. Its a pure bolt on so dont shell out $$$ to do it at a shop. just simple 3/8 ratchet and 13mm bolts and you are good. AND THE BEST THING about these is THE ZERO DRONE in the cabin when cruising esp at 60mph. THANKS AM FOR YOUR AWESOME KICK ASS PRODUCTS!

    i didnt expect it to be this good!!!!!!

    i heard plenty of other mustangs that had flowmaster, slp and magnaflow. but no one around seemed to want to buy the borla because they were so expensive, i wasnt to happy with all those guy's exhaust note either, a lot of them sound like hondas. i tried this only because i thought that there obviously must be a reason why these are so expensive.... and i was right (for once).... the borla ataks make this v6 sound like a race car, and that scene on the video where you hear them go under the tunnel... yeah it does sound exactly like that!!!! installation- you really really need a lift ... and that ball clamp that connects the catback to the axle is really welded on so i had to go to shop where it took him 1 minute to bring out the cutting torch and we still got to reuse that clamp. 30 minute install at a shop and i couldnt be happier!!!!!! also, expect a performance gain... the stock mufflers weigh a ton and these borlas dont weigh anywhere near that much.

    Absolutely NO Regrets

    This exhaust system is amazing. I had been debating which exhaust I wanted to put on my 11 V6 for months. I watched countless videos and read through all of the forums and reviews for all of the possible set ups. Ultimately it came down to Borla, due to the high quality and absolutely ZERO drone. The real question was whether to go S-Type or ATAK. I wanted a loud, aggressive, low-sounding growl, as close to a 5.0 as I could get, so I went with ATAK. Now this exhaust does not sound too much like the new 5.0, there is only so much you can do without those two extra cylinders, but it sure as hell sounds NOTHING like a V6. The growl is intense and mean. There is not a video on the net that does this exhaust justice. It sounds awesome while behind the wheel, but today I stood on the street as a buddy screamed by me several times at all RPM ranges and I was amazed. IT SOUNDS SICK. Get ready for some serious head-turning. And even though this system screams when you open up the throttle, it can be surprisingly calm if you drive it accordingly. Installation took about 30 minutes at a shop, and that was mostly from removing the stock mufflers. Save up the extra $$, do not take a chance on any other system. You will NOT regret it. Oh, and as always, American Muscle was A+++.

    Hands down THE best!

    Don't let the price of Borla scare you. It's expensive because it's actually good! You get what you pay for after all and you won't be disapointed in these. After hearing a lot of clips on youtube and in person nothing came close to the ATAK setup. Starts up with a nice deep rumble and deep note through the RPM's. If you're going for an exhaust save up the few extra hundred for these guys and make it sound right. and mixed with an Airaid Intake makes it sound even better. Couldn't be happier.

    The best sound ever !!!

    When I bought the car I never thought that I would change the exhaust, until I heard the Borla ATAK online. I did some research and NOTHING sounds as GOOD as this exhaust. The installation: not as easy as I thought it would be, it is pretty tight, not too much space to play with and you have to use the c-clamps from the stock mufflers; just cut them off and reuse them, also I cut off from the inner hanger on both mufflers so I dont have to unbolt anything except the c-clamp (I did the same thing with the stock mufflers before and it was easy to take them off and put them back on). These mufflers are not loud if you dont want them to be, when you cruise you can barely hear it, but when you punch it you will turn heads left and right, it sounds AWESOME! I have only one problem, I CANT KEEP MY FOOT OF THE GAS PEDAL! Oh yea, and there is a ZERO DRONE, nice job Borla and thank you AM

    I bought this hoping to get more attention when driving, and i get the stares everytime i start driving, this is by far the best upgrade i have made for my car, i have put racing stripes, hood pins, and door lock pins all from AM!there is really no way or video to show the true sound of this exhaust, but i was debating whether getting the S-Type instead but i said F**k it and bought the ATAK,and i COULD NOT be any Happier! if it helps watch the video online from Borla itself and the comparison and let they guy smooth talking talk you in to it! installing it was fairly simple, taking the stock ones off is a pain but once your done with that its cake, NOTE in my 2012 v6 the clamp was welded into the exhaust so i had to rip it off, to use it for my Borla ATAK, it took me and my friend about 1 hour to finish the whole process.

    These exhaust are AMAZING. This made me really believe a V6 engine can sound good. Before I put the Borla ATAK system on my car I had a JLT intake, which was a nice addition, but these ATAK's are on a completely different level! Noticeable gain in power as well as throttle response, and the sound they make is absolutely wonderful. If your not a fan of engine noise overpowering the radio or your friends talking, this isn't the system for you.

    This exhaust is incredible!! I would really recommend everyone to buy it. It doesn't sound noisy like other cheap exhausts. I've read somewhere that the sound of the exhaust changes after couple of months! Well, I've installed the exhaust for 3 months now and it still rocks! it still sounds amazing and nobody ever would think if that was a V6! It's quite expensive but totally worth it! don't hesitate and go for it!

    i recently bought a borla atak and i have to say best thing i have bought for my new mustang. I searched around for different exhausts and was still uneasy about which one to get it. after reading reviews on the borlas. i went ahead and bought. So glad i paid the extra money and got the ataks. quiet when it needs to be but loud and aggresive when you want to show it off. I have gotten nothing but compliments and couldnt be happier. if you are on the fence with borlas... dont be! buy it!!
