Best sound for AT equipped v6? Looking to upgrade the exhaust note (more rumble/bark without being too loud) on our '11 V6 convertible w/ an AT, and considering the Borla Touring and the Magnaflow 15595. Any preferences between the 2, and any concerns about drone when the trans may be hunting between gears? thanks


  • I got the borla ATAK and I haven't had any drone so I think you'll be fine with the touring.

What exhaust should I get? Alright I have the Borla ATAK exhaust with the BBK Headers and Catted X-Pipe. This set up is a little too loud for me, always wake everybody up in my neigborhood when I leave in the morning. I still want loud, just not ATAK loud. Would the Borla Touring be pretty loud with my set up or should I go with the Type S.


  • You need to go on line and listen to the different sounds for the exhausts on a mustang. Myself I put the PYPES axle back muffler delete system on my GT. It is a personal preference decision.

    Perfect sound for my V6 auto

    This is the second exhaust I have purchased for my '13 V6 auto. The first was the Bassani axle backs. They had a horrible drone that I could not live with. I knew I should have bought the Borlas to begin with but I was trying to save some money. After taking to time to study up on my options, I decided to go with the Borla Touring. As soon as I started the car I could hear a huge difference. They have a much deeper "grumble". The overall volume at idle is a little bit louder that stock. Normal driving is about the same, deeper and louder than stock but not screaming for attention. Just a perfect volume in my opinion. Once you get up to about 3k rpm they come alive with a beautiful roar. I absolutely love the sound and best of all you get this with zero drone at any speed/rpm range. It's exactly what I was looking for. There were some fitment issues as others here have mentioned. One of the hangers on the left side is bent in too narrow. I simply bent it out a bit and all is well.

    The perfect exhaust note for the 2011 v6 Mustang

    The exhaust note is great! It has a deep throaty growl at half throttle and it really roars at full throttle! At cruising speeds it is slightly louder than stock. I really think it is the perfect exhaust for the 2011 and up v6 Mustangs. If you're going for loud, don't get this exhaust. If you're going for great exhaust note, I recommend the Borla Touring Axle back 100%. American Muscle is awesome!

    Quietest of the Borla Axel-Backs, but...

    I deliberated buying these for a couple months and finally caved, as the factory muffs were just too quiet for a sporty car. They arrived in just a couple days, and that same day I had an authorized Borla installer (as he called himself) put them on. Now, about 1500 miles later they have had a chance to "burn in" and I suppose they have. But the car sounds more more like a six cylinder now than ever before. That's not a bad thing since I wanted and bought a six cylinder Mustang, but it sounded better with the factory muffs, especially at speed. There is no mileage gain, by the way. If I had it to do over, I would put my money elsewhere.

    perfect, exactly what is advertised!

    i was purposely wanting something subdued. it's the PERFECT note, decibal-level, and deepness. i absolutely love it. it purrs like a kitten and roars like a lion on command! it's worth EVERY single penny i paid. AM and Borla were great to deal with when i called them with some questions. Borla's description of this is dead on. the Touring is perfect for a daily driver - quiet when it needs to be and loud when you open her up! the install took about 3 hours (the longest time was spent taking off the stock).

    Installation Help

    I'm reviewing this way too early as I just put it on this afternoon, but so far, I love the sound. I wanted to let those of you know who have the 2014 that the installation can be a little tricky, at least for me it is. Obviously look at the online instructions from the Borla and the user instructions, those were helpful. However, when it came time to remove the the old exhaust I found a few tricks which made the install ... well, possible. 1. Put the car up on ramps. 2. Unhook the rear most exhaust stabilizer bar from the rubber mount first. This was easy. 3. Undo the bolt which connects the old exhaust from the long pipe. 4. On the driver side, I removed the bolts which held the rubber stabilizers. The ring which connects the exhaust to the pipe is welded and there's very little room to work with. It's easier to get to them if you've done number 2 above. Then it's three bolts. They're slightly different lengths so try to keep them organized. 5. Bend the welded ring back and forth a few times and it will fall off so you can use it for the new exhaust. 6. Slide the new exhaust forward most stabilizer bars into the rubber mounted bracket. Under the car slide the rear most bar into the rear most mount to help with the weight. Now fit the exhaust to the bar and screw in the three bolts you removed. You will need a wrench for the middle bolt as a socket won't get up underneath the exhaust. 7. Tighten the ring and you're done. 8. For the passenger side I found with a little wiggling I was able to get the old exhaust out without removing the mount. However, I removed the mount after the exhaust to set the new exhaust in place and then put those two bolts back in. *** NOTE *** on this side, do not fit the rear most stabilizer until you've tightened the mount as you'll need the exhaust to hang a bit to tighten the center mount bolt. Once that's tight, fit the rear most bar and tighten the ring which connects the exhaust to the long pipe. 9. Give yourself a hand, you're done. Scott

    Borla Touring Exhaust Looks GREAT and Sounds AWESOME!

    The Borla Touring Exhaust looks and sounds so much better than the stock exhaust! The chrome exhaust tips are much bigger and the sound is mellow but has a deep throat sound. Well worth my purchase! I would highly recommend this product! I did not do the installation, it was a shop install, as I am not mechanically inclined. But WOW, the appearance and the sound is outstanding!! I would not hesitate buying this exhaust if you are considering it. My next mod is the Airaid Cold Air Intake.

    Touring Axleback exhaust

    This product looks great, big pipes, shiny and growling. Louder than stock why else would we be buying the mufflers, quiet when off the gas but growles when you hit it. If you don't want to sound like a rice burner, then these are the pipes for you. Highly recommend.

    This is a great axle-back system. I originally ordered the Roush axle-backs, but thought they were too loud and obnoxious. After doing a lot of research and listening to sound clips, I chose the Borlas over the Flowmasters. The Flowmasters seemed to have that popcorn sound that I didn't like, so I chose these. I originally had fitment issues with the Borlas. It appeared that the driver-side muffler came with damage (bent hangers, slightly bent exhaust exit). It wasn't a huge deal for me since I was able to bend the hangers back into place and adjust the exhaust exit accordingly. Additionally, after both sides were installed, the top of the passenger side muffler would hit the hanger when going over a bump on the road. After some redneck engineering, I've gotten rid of all the issues. I would recommend to Borla to provide the exhaust clamps in the future. With my 2014, my clamps are spot welded onto the exhaust (required me to bend and break them off the stock units). The sound is exactly what I was looking for (deeper idle, deeper tone in general). These are slightly louder than stock on the highway (with the radio off on the highway, I can hear them slightly, which I like). When you put your foot into it, everyone around you is aware to stay out of the way. My favorite part about these is between shifts; you get a slight gurgle in between each of them. These are what the stock 3.7 Mustangs SHOULD sound like. I've noticed better throttle response (I have an Airaid CAI), and although I know you're not supposed to notice much in performance, I do see a slight increase in power. If you're looking for an axle-back system that has a good tone, isn't obnoxious, and provides performance value, I'd recommend these.

    So far, so good....

    Installation was a breeze. Couple minor hanger adjustments and it lined up great. The sound is exactly like the video, finish is top notch. This is my first pony car as the owner, mom had a 66 yrs ago. So I'm having fun wrenching on my own ride. Added the throttle-body spacer, JLT intake and this car has some noticeable gitty-up vs stock (V6). Fuel mileage will be the thing I'll watch the most...I'll try NOT to push the peddle more than I should....

    way better than stock

    i had the s-type before these and i thought they were way to loud. i got these and at first i thought there wasnt much of a difference between s-type and touring at idle. but after driving them its much better. touring has the rumble when you want it but also can be quiet (louder than stock still) for long trips. no drone on the newest version. tips look awesome. fit is great. ive had to take my mufflers on and off so many times i can change them with out a jack or lift in under 30 min.. only down side is the price, just like every other mustang product. mustang is an expensive toy.

    Mellower than I thought

    I watched a lot of videos at first, decided I wanted the Touring exhaust, than I thought it would be too quiet. Decided on the S-Type, than changed my mind and thought I wanted the Atak. I wanted a nice low rumbling sound, and the Touring seemed to be it. The Pypes Pype Bomb also caught my eye, and watching the vids it seemed it was not really that much louder than stock. Well, the mics on those vids seem to be way off. I purchased the Pype Bomb exhaust, knowing that there are fitment issues, but from reviews I read you could adjust it by moving the mid pipe... partially true. I finally got the Pypes adjusted to where they would fit the exhaust cutouts, but they would still rub on the hanger mounts. They said that the Pypes droned at 2000 - 3000 RPM. True, but they also drone at 1500 when trying to accelerate. They were loud outside, and I was ok with that, but they were obnoxiously loud on the inside too. Not to mention the vibration they were transmitting throughout the cabin. I took them off and decided on the Touring. I wanted the S-Type, but reading the reviews and listening to all of the different videos it seemed like the S-Type would be too loud too. So, for the good part, I was able to remove the stock mufflers and install the Borla Touring in 40 minutes, without having to jack up the car. The fit was sooooo much better than the Pypes Bomb!!! The tips fit exactly the way they should, and the install was as described by scrib74. It was very easy & quick, and as I mentioned they fit perfectly, unlike the Pypes. Now, for the sound... well, after all of the reviews I have read, and the videos I have watched, it seems like they would be a little louder. The Pype Bomb was waaaaayyyy too much, and the Borla Touring is waaaayyy too little. They are like the stock exhaust, plus maybe 5%??? At the most. Sure, if you rev it to red line it might sound more aggressive, but between idle and even 3500 it does not seem much louder at all. I was somewhat disappointed. I was hoping for a little more. Since I cannot return them, I will keep them on the car. They are not bad, but considering that they are only slightly louder than the stock, I don't think they are worth the $583. Don't get me wrong, it is a great product, it fits great, install is easy, but the sound is too mellow. The Touring is too mellow, and the Pype Bomb is too loud & obnoxious. From the reviews I have read the Pype Bomb is louder than the Atak, so I think that the S-Type would have been just right. I wanted to order it, but was afraid it was too loud, judging by the Borla video review of all three. It seems that the mic they used on those vids were too much the opposite of the mics they used for the Pypes Bomb. The Borla is worth its money considering the fit & finish, the 4.5" tips look awesome, but I wanted just a little more sound. The packaging was just right, not too much, not too little (unlike the Pypes), and I liked the fact it came with a hat & some stickers. ;-) It is a great, great product, but would the sound of the vids have been more accurate, I think I would have went with the S-Type. Oh well. :-)

    Inside cabin noise too loud, this sound isn't talked about anywhere, not even on Utube!

    Mufflers and sound was great, but inside the car noise was too loud. Looks like someone could make a set that has a great sound, but you could still carry on a conversion inside the car, and still be able to use Sync on a mustang. Wish I could find that product. Borla Touring is as close as I've found to having those conditions, but still not there.

    I will say I am a skeptical buyer and listened to the youtube video of the three Mustang V6 Borla videos. I am very happy with the Touring. I am still interested to hear what the S-Type would sound like but I know I'm happy with the Touring. The install was easy. You don't NEED the tin snips as you can wiggle the clamp back and forth and break it off AND then reuse it on the Borlas. For loudness I put 5 stars because I am satisfied and I don't think Borla should get anything less than a 100% for anything. Again, I am VERY satisfied with this product.

    Great sound, but not too loud.

    The install took about 2ish hours with breaks with it being the first time I have ever installed an exhaust. It took about an hour and fifteen minutes to do the first one since I had no idea what I was doing and barely any time for the second since I knew what to do by the time I got to it. The install was fairly easy with a helping hand, but may take longer to install alone. The most important part is of course the sound, which is loud enough when you floor it to turn heads but quiet enough when you are cruising to have a conversation with the passenger. I actually ended up finding someone selling their set for $300 on craigslist so these were an amazing deal. Even at full price I would definitely recommend getting these.

    Just what I was looking for!

    Researched for a while and read many reviews before deciding on the Borla Touring set. I wanted a good rumble without being too loud when cruising. These fit the bill perfectly. Nice throb at low speeds, and plenty of sound when I open it up. Took me just under two hours to install by myself with the back end up on ramps. Had to slightly bend the hangers welded to the front of one of the mufflers to get it in good position, but it was easy to do and worked out great. Would have completed the change in less time, but I ended up repositioning one of the ball clamps several times to prevent an exhaust leak. Really liked the sound on the test drive.

    Great sound with virtually no inside drone\vibration.

    I had put on a set of Basanni's couple weeks ago and the sound was nice and actually a little more aggressive than the Borla Touring. However I could not get over the drone\vibration at 1800-2000 rpm. Having an automatic I also noticed it just when taking off from a stop. Not knocking the Bassanni as I know there are many others that would not mind the drone as I do and I plan on selling them. Totally different with the Borla Touring. While it is not quite as aggressive, it still sounds great. When at cruising speed there is NO drone but you can still hear the slight growl coming from the back. I love them. When you punch it it really roars also. Personal preference but I say they are awesome.
