Louder than Stock

Exhaust is a little louder that stock without any drone at 65, 70 or 75 mph. When you get on it it is louder than stock with a deeper pitch. I wanted the Borla S but wasn't wanting to spend $800 on axelbacks. ...

Hello. Will the GT500 mufflers fit a car that has a flowmaster hushpower exhaust already installed? Currently I have a Flowmaster Hushpower cat-back exhaust installed. I would like to switch mufflers to the GT500 mufflers. The Hushpower mufflers have a little too much drone for me. Will the GT500 mufflers fit or will I have to switch back to the stock pipes?

Lipt03

  • If the over axle pipes have a different style of fitting then stock or a different angle then then stock, you will have to change back to the stock cat back. The fitting type of this axle back is a ball and socket type, I'm not sure of the Flowmaster fitting type but if it's a slip on style it won't work. The GT500 mufflers are the exact same fittment as the stock mufflers, after all they are stock on a GT500. Hope that helps you out!

Hello, Do I need a tuner if I install these mufflers? Thanks.

Dynamyke

  • No, you don't need a tune. I receive a LOT of compliments on the sound of my car with these GT 500 axle-backs. Being factory Ford parts, they have absolutely ZERO DRONE, and you can count on them lasting a long time. They are only slightly louder than stock at low RPMS, but at wide open throttle, they sound great.

Are these lighter than the stock mufflers? If so how much weight savings is there?

CRizzle1

  • I just got mine and installed them. Qualitatively, they seem about the same weight as stock. Any weight savings, if any, appears minimal. They are virtually identical dimensions of the stock mufflers Just a slightly less restrictive and slightly louder sound. Kinda wish I got Roush actually.

Do you have a sound clip or a video of the Ford Racing GT500 Style Axle-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT).

Derf

  • We do not have any videos or sound clips, however I would suggest searching your year and model, along with the name of the Ford Performance GT500 Style Axle-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT), on youtube. Often times there are plenty examples there.

Which exhaust to go with? Hello, I was wondering which would be more beneficial, a catback exhaust or this axle back and an X pipe? I am trying to decide which direction to go in since the cost would be reasonably similar. Thanks.

NewStangOwner

  • Stick with the axle back...more than sufficient for sound quality and air flow. The GTs already have decent flowing cats and mid pipe exhaust, better than the V6s. Swapping out all the other exhaust pieces will get you a voided exhaust warantee and probably a failed emissions (if applicable in your area). The cost between the 2 options isnt even close.

    exhaust note

    these are great , had a Roush straight thur previously and the drone sucked at freeway speeds. these have NO drone at any speed sound great( may be a little too quite) but you can't have it both ways had to trim about an inch off of one of the hangers to get to fit , but that did not effect anything else. i would buy these again

    Great Sound - Needed something less Obnoxious

    I purchased my first Mustang GT about 2 months ago. It had the HeartThrob (I think) exhausts which are essentially straight pipes by what I could tell. It sounded mean, but REALLY REALLY loud. As a mid-thirties guy and as a daily driver it just became too much. I purchased the GT500s and my 13 yr old son and I installed them in a couple hours. It is much quieter at idle and highway speeds and zero drone! It still sounds really good with acceleration and WOT but I don't blow peoples windows out just trying to keep up with traffic haha!

    The sound you have always wanted comes alive

    These GT500 axle backs are perfect, no drone just excellent enhancement of the sound that Ford has engineered into our cars. Every time I'm cruising I'm hearing that great sound of Steve McQueen driving the green bullet car in the movie. Great shipping and service from American Muscle.

    GT500 AXLE BACKS

    Perfection, whisper quiet cruising between 35 and 55. Deep awesome sound when punching the throttle ( all mustang drivers do ) I didn't want it to sound like a Harley, I'm mid 50's not mid 20's. I have a 2012 GT convertible, so you hear everything. I am so glad I waited for these to come out, I LOVE them.

I wanted the Borla S but wasn't wanting to spend $800 on axelbacks. My exhaust and engine is otherwise completely stock. The tips are not chrome plated and sit farther inside the bumper than stock. I hope it won't discolor the bumper.

    Good, bad, and ugly

    I was astonished to see the huge box these came in. Ford racing really did a good job packaging the mufflers. I put my car up on ramps and took the mufflers out of th box, that's when I started to feel ripped off. The welds on these mufflers are terrible. The metal is scorched in several places and the alloy they used to weld it together was all over the place. They actually looked used. I had to take a good look at the inside to make sure they were new. Oh well, at least you won't really see that unless you're looking for it. I'll post pictures so you can see what I mean. The install was straightforward, there are no instructions, but if you can get your mufflers off you can put new ones on. The sound is okay. I have an o/r h pipe and it has a slightly sport bike tone to it while cruising. When you get on it the sound is pretty loud and maintains a decent tone. I'm not really impressed or disappointed.

    GT 500

    I am very pleased with the GT 500 Exhaust. It replaced the Flowmaster outlaw series. The drone from the Flowmasters was horrible and there is virtually no drone with the GT 500's. They are quiet when they need to be and expressive when they have too. The install took right around an hour to complete.

    SHAZAM!!!!

    I installed a Steeda cold air intake and a performance tune. Next morning took car to Midas and for a mere 70 dollars had the mufflers installed. All I can say is Wow! Like everyone before me has said, the appearance of the larger tail pipes is great, but the sound improvement just can't be properly stated in words, but every comment I read was accurate. Great sound at all RPM's and no more drone! You can't go wrong here. Buy them and you will love them.

    Great Exhaust

    I listened through many sound clips of various axle-back exhausts and read a ton of reviews before deciding to purchase the GT500 axle-backs. They are exactly as advertised, factory quality and fit, and a good upgrade over stock sound. Cold startup has a nice deep V8 burble to it, once the engine gets warm it blends in and is only slightly louder than stock. You can hear the difference when you punch the throttle and it sounds great, but under normal driving conditions it is barely louder than stock, and absolutely no drone. Pretty easy install, took about an hour and nothing unexpected, did it myself with basic hand tools and jack stands. Would highly recommend for those like me looking for a more aggressive sound when getting on the gas but not wanting a loud and annoying exhaust during daily driving.

    Best sound at best price

    1) Loudness and Note. The exhaust is much louder than I anticipated from YouTube videos and the like, but in a good way. I was very pleasantly surprised when I fired her up. The note and volume are both perfect for me. I wanted something that screamed muscle car but still sounded like something from a factory instead of just pure obnoxious noise, and that's exactly what I got with this product. 2) Fit & Finish. Fits perfectly and looks like stock, but installation can be really tricky especially if you're alone so even when you finally get it mounted make sure to take a step back and make sure it's not touching any body or otherwise misaligned. I had to re-tweak my efforts a couple times. 3) Installation Time. I rated this at Afternoon but it took me something like 4 hours with a friend. Personally, this is the best axle-back exhaust I've heard out there and somehow it's also the cheapest. Buy it and enjoy.

    Great sound, great price.

    I was looking for something with a slightly more agressive with a deep, almost subvocal "thrum", but without roar or drone. After countless sound samples and YouTube videos, I decided that this one sounded the best for what I wanted. The big surprise was the price, which was very reasonable. Installation was relatively easy, and the bolt-on clamps made fitment and adjustment a breeze. The only issue was that it came packaged in a Ford Racing box, and the tips are NOT padded enough for the way UPS treats a box. The weight of the mufflers caused the tips to punch through the styrofoam padding and hit the cement of my porch upon delivery, bending it and scuffing it. Luckily, the tips are not super-buffed or double-walled, so I was able to hammer it out with a mallet and a wood dowel, though there's still a bit of a scuff. The tips themselves are pretty no-nonsense. Nevertheless, I'm very happy with this muffler. Car is a 2012 Mustang GT with the stock H pipe.

    Loving The GT500 Axle-Back

    I must admit I was shocked to hear, feel and see what a difference this Axle-Back Kit made in my GT. It's more throaty, and has better tone without being loud or obnoxious. It's the perfect enhancement for someone that wants a little better sound, but doesn't want to awaken the entire neighborhood when they drive by.

    Sounds great, but still reasonable volume

    I wanted a better sound from my Mustang but did not want to go around attracting cops or irritating the neighbors. I'm happy to report the GT500 axle back is exactly what I was looking for. They totally change the sound of the car and are as quiet as stock on the highway. There is a little bit more volume under acceleration (sounds great) but not enough to worry about noise ordinances or nasty notes from your neighbors.

    Not Too Loud, Not Too Quiet, Just Right

    This exaust has a great note that is pleasing to the ear but doesn't cause your fillings to fall out. The stock system was too muted but this adds just the right amount of exaust note to get the adrelaline going. And there is no drone what so ever like most aftermarket systems. I chose not to install it and the installer was suprised by the pleasant sound and said he never put on another system that did not drone on set RPM's. If you buy this exaust you won't be disappointed.
