High Flow Exhaust. Untap hidden power from your V6 with significant improvements in sound and power with this precision engineered exhaust from Borla. Borla engineers have designed this axle-back to deliver a significant increase in airflow from the factory exhaust system for maximum power increases and a great, throaty muscle car tone.

Aggressive Sound. The aggressive sound of the Borla Axle-Back comes from their industry-leading "S-Type" Stinger Mufflers. The Stinger Mufflers feature a straight-through baffled design to produce a deep, aggressive exhaust note that will get your V6 noticed at idle and clear the road ahead when unleashed at full throttle.

Durable Construction. Borla's S-Type exhausts are made from aerospace grade T-304 stainless for unmatched durability and great looks. The S-Type Axle-Back (the "Stinger") is designed to be a direct bolt-on, and is made from free-flowing 2.5" mandrel-bent stainless steel for great performance. The Borla S-Type exhaust is complete with 4.5" polished tips that are stamped with the "Borla" name for a show-winning appearance.

Application. The Borla Stinger S-Type Axle-Back is specifically designed to be a direct bolt on upgrade reusing factory hardware for the 2011-2013+ V6 Mustang.

is this alot quieter than the Ataks? I have a 2013 V6 mustang with Borla headers, X-pipe and Borla Atak Mufflers. The problem now is its way to loud ( cops harasing me about it) so i need to quieten it down. Basiclly i wanna bring the sound level down but still want that borla sound. Will the s-type or Touring keep that aggressive tone but with less raw sound?


  • Yes on the S-Type, no on the touring. I purchased the s-type so I would not have that problem. Sounds great and screams when you step on it, but not to loud when cruising. The Ataks are really loud and when add the headers and x pipe probably makes it really loud.

Convertible? First off, I'm new here. What a great site to buy upgrades for my new 'Stang. On my second Mustang. Never did any mods to my old 1994 V6. What a shame. This is such a great community of both end-customers and an outstanding aftermarket parts supplier. Glad to have found the site. Has anyone tried the S-Type on a Mustang Convertible V6? I'm definitely ok with the noise when I punch it. But, I'm curious if its too loud for an everyday commute and bluetooth usage. Perhaps another way to ask the question might this: Is the noise level too much with the windows down during a commute? Thanks guys/gals! David


  • I have a 2013 v6 with performance package. I have the Borla S-Type and they sound perfect. Not to quiet and not to loud and no popping. It was my first mod and sounds great! Also looks great with the huge cans in the back! I don't have a convertible, but its not loud while cruising and doesn't bother me when windows are down. It does scream when you punch it and has a louder hum when cruising on the freeway, but does not interfere with Sync.

I'm undecided on the Borla Stinger S-Type axle-back exhaust versus the Borla Stinger S-Type Cat-Back exhaust. What's the benefit of the cat-back versus axle-back. Thank you, Joel


  • The biggest difference that companies advertise catbacks for is that they will add more power and axle backs don't add any power. But in reality from personal tests catback doesn't do anything on my V6. So go with the axle backs and save a little money. If you really want to get new over axle pipes get a shop to custom fabricate some. It'll be a lot cheaper.

    Borla Axle-Back Stingers 3.7 V6

    My order arrived as promised and I installed them last weekend. Borla's instructions are vague and almost appear to be a cut and paste from an earlier model Mustang. Their reference to a 15mm bolt is a dead giveaway since the V6 is all 13mm. I would not call this an easy install but if you have experience, not too bad. My only complaint is I had to reuse the stock muffler clamps that are spot welded to the existing muffler. A set of clamps would have been nice. Not a huge issue but worth mentioning. The quality of muffler is perfect and they look great when on the car. The 4" tips are awesome and go all the way back to the can. Lining up the tips is a snap by leaving the ball clamp a little loose, but snug enough to hold everything in place for alignment before final torque. Sound is best described as a high end import. You get the import pop and high note exhaust sound. There is not a lot of deep sound here like you hear with a V8. This is a V6 and it will sound like one. Borla did a good job though and when you step in it you will hear the growl and it sounds great. Make no mistake these are loud under acceleration and you will hear them inside the car with the windows up under most driving conditions. Normal driving is bearable and they are almost silent when at cruising speed. I experienced no drone at all and have no issue using Sync while driving (unless accelerating). Under any acceleration the person I am talking to can hear the car well. It's actually fun LOL. So, if you want loud, this is the ticket to getting noticed.

    Sounds Great!

    I got these to finish up my full exhaust upgrade, and they make the set-up sound very agressive! I do have full length headers and a catted x-pipe. Many, as myself have been looking for an axel-back that will sound great with the headers and x-pipe, and for those who are still looking, I have to say these Borla Stingers really complete the system very well! I didn't want anything too raspy and crackly, but deeper and agressive- and thats what I got! There is very little drone on the freeway and will disapate after about 500 miles of break-in. I gave fit and finish 4 star because the right muffler hanger is too close to the panal of the car and will hit it when on bumpy roads. This muffler also hangs down more than the left one, but is more of a cosmetic issue. Overall these are great sounding, high quality, and the 4.5 tips are big, but look awesome!

    Borla Stinger S-Type Axle-Back Exhaust

    Ordered on a shipping, got Thursday..excellent service...and the sound is just right, no drone...Euro/racey, it will never have the V8 Sound, but it sounds great, not too loud, but loud..reminds me of a ninja motorcycle with after market pipes..but they rumble as well, when cruising not annoyiny at all..MPG's seemed better already..nice that you use the clamps the old pipes used..I had shop install, 30 mins..lined up perfect.

    Fantastic sound and great look

    I put my Borla stingers on this morning on a 2013 3.7V6 and they sound amazing. If you are looking for an aggressive sound without an annoying droan, these are the mufflers for you. After pulling away from the lift I could not believe I was driving a V6 anymore. I drive about 88 miles round trip a day at various speeds and I found this to be just the right pitch and sound. When you get on it the sound is loud and aggressive. Not to loud for me...Hey thats why I bought a borla right I was one of those guys who went around about which to buy. Flowmaster, Borla, or Bassani. I ended up choosing Borla because they had the best reputation and reviews. I am glad I chose my gut this time.

    Easy Install, Look and Sound Great

    I've read that removal and install of the axle-back exhaust is a hassle but it's not. The fit and finish was spot on. The passenger side takes less than 10 minutes for removal and install. The drivers side takes a little long, about 30 minutes, because you need to partially remove the front support for the muffler, loosen the inside bolt and remove the middle support bolt so the muffler can get past the sway bar. The sound is best in a automatic when you drive it like a stick and up shift manually. The automatic transmission shifts at such low rpm's driving around town you really don't get the full affect of the exhaust unless you up shift the car manually. Makes the car a lot more fun to drive.

    Amazing system, but expensive

    This exhaust not only looks great but sounds great too. The note was a perfect deep growl that roared as the tachometer raised. Plus it comes with a borla hat; what's better? The only thing that is bad about the exhaust is that I was expecting it to be a bit louder and its very expense but the quality of my money was worth it; made in America, for an American car.

    Brola Stingers, 2013 V6 - worth the extra $

    Installed on 2013 V6 and I'm very happy with the sound, tone, and quality of Borla stingers. The 4 inch tips look great too. As other pointed out, the instructions were less than complete. Took some extra time to install figuring things out. I estimate it was 1-1/2 to 2 hour job. I love the sound and it really gives the V6 exhaust notes that turns heads. Loud but not too loud - just right for me. I also have a Airaid CAI which helps the exhaust sound even better. Together they are a perfect combo.

    Just Do It

    If you are like me you have spent hours on the internet listening and comparing sound clips. First let me say that the sound clips do not do this system justice. On my initial start up I was expecting the sound from the video clips but I was pleasantly surprised. It is much louder and overall it sounds better than I expected. I will base my review off of the given categories. Exhaust Note: The tone is perfect. The initial start up sounds like a totally new car. I cannot believe how loud and deep it sounds. It has a nice burble and pop on shifts and it exceeded my expectations. Bang For Your Buck: Borla products are not cheap, but you get what you pay for. You have one chance to put the right exhaust on, you might as well start with the best. Fit and Finish: The muffler and tips were in perfect condition. It arrived in bubble wrap with more than adequate packing and not a scratch on the entire system. The 4.5" chrome tips are polished nicely and really fill the cut-outs well. Loudness (Volume): The volume is perfect being right between the Touring and ATAK. When you cruise and under gentle acceleration it has a bass tone but is by no means obnoxious. Around 2,000 RPMs you can barley hear it cruising down the highway. No drone at all. Install: The hardest part was removing the factory system. The hangers towards the front of the vehicle take a little WD40 and some muscle but eventually they pop out. Make sure you remove the factory clamp because you will need them for the new system. I had to adjust the tips a few times because the driver's side tip wanted to keep rubbing against the wall of the cutouts. It took some adjusting of the hangers but was a small issue. Overall: You will not be disappointed if you purchase this exhaust system. It has the best sound for the 3.7, is well made, and American Muscle has great service. I highly recommend the Borla S Type.

    Borla S-type good buy

    Great look and sound. Installation was easy on the passenger side. The panhard bar had to be unmounted on one end to allow the length of the muffler to fit. The exhaust note is nice, the harder you drive the car the louder it appears to get. What I like is that the sound mellows out once you reach your cruising speed.

    V6 Sound?

    This is an honest review, I've owned a lot of different Borla Exhaust systems for different cars. I originally had a Borla ATAK on my 2012 V6 Stang, and it turned out to be way too loud for my city daily driver commute. I decided long and hard to continue to try Borla or Magnaflow, so I decided to go for the Borla- S-TYPE exhaust. Installation: I installed the exhaust myself with no help in about 45 minutes, jack stands definitely help, and also be sure to use WD40 on the rubber exhaust hangers! It takes some fighting and a "third-hand" using your knee to wrestle the new exhaust and clamp it, but it isn't too difficult. The weird thing is that I'm sure Borla didn't weld their hanger on correctly on the left side for the right muffler. I've had this same issue with the ATAK, and you have to put in the "short side" first and then force the other side into the other hanger. FIT: Just like with the Borla ATAK, the right side seemed to hang lower than the left, I thought it was my exhaust piping, but the stock exhaust is perfectly level. The trick is to just loosen the clamp up a little, and force the exhaust into place by pressing up on the exhaust tip, then re-tighten the clamp. SOUND: These sound great at IDLE, and revving up with no load in park sounds awesome. I have a BAMA 93R tune and CAI, and the exhaust when the RPM's drop give a mean "Crackle". Sounds way better than the ATAK at idle and just revving up. However, I don't know if these been to be "broken" in or not since Borla uses packing material in the mufflers, but it does sound a little more RICEY than the ATAK. Which was unexpected. I have an automatic transmission, and it kinda sounds like a WRX at times. The sound is starting to sound a little better though.

    This axle back system wakes up your v6 giving a nice, deep tone when your foot is on the gas while being quiet while cruising. Quality product, even better sound. Feels like a new car!

    Rawwwrr said the borlas

    So this axel back sounds amazing.. My set up is BBK intake + Short tune headers + Bama race tune.. So the good the bad.. Installation was easy, and the exhaust sounds awesome when your on the gas.. I am 100% sure that my bbk short tune headers quieted my exhaust note and made it so deep that it's quiet on idle of when your not on the gas.. But step on it and people can really hear you come! I highly recommend these but I do wish they were a little louder.. If you have the exact same set up as me I recommend the borla attacks.. If you don't have short headers this axel back rocks.. I love my exhaust note tho.. 0 drone and quiet when you need it to be and loud when some one decides to see what your pony has lol

    Quieter than expected, still worth it.

    The quality of the Borla Stingers is great. The large tips shine and really set off the rear end. They're a few lbs. lighter too. They give off a nice rumble at startup & idle, and sound good when cruising. Absolutely no drone! Stomp on the gas and the Stingers will let out a roar. I have to admit I thought they'd be a little louder, but it's better than having drone and definitely better than stock.

    Great on Convertible & Instant Gratification

    I am glad I pulled the trigger on these. I was apprehensive to go with the Stinger at first as I thought it might be too loud with the convertible. You can even the the question I posted above. Well, they are perfect. I am glad I chose these over the Touring, and wouldn't mind if they were even louder. After riding with these puppies for over 6 months now, I've got to say they are my favorite purchase. I think I would cry if I had to go back to the stock exhaust. Looks way better than the stock GT exhaust too! You'll be glad you did. I get compliments from bikers all the time, especially after roaring under an overpass.

    Awsome exhaust

    Love the sound of this exhaust. At first really thought it would be louder. As I put some miles on the exhaust the tone seemed to deepen. Not to loud at cruising speeds but you lay into the stupid pedal and the car comes alive.its loud when you want it to be. I would definetly recommend this product well worth the money
