Installed this axe-back on my '12 GT. Sounds great at start up, very deep! When revving lightly(1-2K) before taking off, it sounds great! There is a nice rumble and deep tone! Deceleration also sounds ...

Stuck between two choices. I like these and the flowmaster outlaws. I like these looks better, but sound is more important to me than looks. The outlaws sound deeper than these just from online searches I mean. Anyone here familiar with both. I like loyd but not obnoxious. But I'm afraid this are more high pitch then deep. Can you help me out please. Thanks

  • Although I've never owned the Outlaws, I have had the Hushpowers, which is considerably quieter. That being said, I personally feel that the Outlaws would be too loud for a daily driver unless that's what you like - LOUD - all the time.The Hushpowers had a sort of deep tone, yet not near as deep in my opinion as the Kooks. I really didn't like the glasspack-type sound that the Hushpowers produced off-idle and above. They were very bubbly sounding to me. Not so with the Kooks system, just real muscle car sound. I believe the Outlaws, being a smaller muffler, would have to be much louder and tend to sound even more glasspack-like - popping, etc. Hope this helps!

Anyone know the HP increase with the Kooks exhaust? Just installed...LOVE the old school sound, deep idle w/o being obnoxiously loud. Great fit and finish. These must increase HP...just wondering by how much.

  • No Hp gains from axle backs unless you have done a ton of supporting mods, even then is extremely small. maybe 1-2hp at the most.

Question Resolved

I am interested in purchasing an axel-back exhaust system for my 2014 GT 5.0. I want a deep throat guttural sound when idling and traveling at normal speeds. I don't race it and I don't want any pops or back fires. Is Kooks Performance Axle-Back Exhaust the best system to purchase?

    Installed this axe-back on my '12 GT. Sounds great at start up, very deep! When revving lightly(1-2K) before taking off, it sounds great! There is a nice rumble and deep tone! Deceleration also sounds awesome! My only complaint is at WOT, the sound seems to noticeably drown out. If WOT was louder, it would be the perfect exhaust! Looks like I'm going to switch to the Flowmaster Outlaw.

    Kooks is where it is at.

    I am the person who does hours of research, watches tons of youtube videos and looks at tons of reviews. I also talked to the American Muscle live chat employees to help me as well. I want it all, i want no drone and good sound, less weight and good looking products. I was going to get either Borla or Corsa because I heard they have no drone and that is why they have the price point that they do. however a live chat employee told me that the Kooks brand would give me the same sound and no drone for a fraction of the price. I decided to trust his advice and I am certainly glad that I did it should definitely sound like this from the factory. I'm very happy with the quality,the finish, the look and the sound that this system makes. Of course there is sound when you press the gas but driving on the highway is quiet. I would buy again.

    Kook's on a Boss Laguna

    Added the Kook's axle back to my '13 BOss LS. Install was simple and direct, there are a few helpful hints on the web such as to pull the mid-pipes to help and/or drop the hangers. I had to do both on the Driver's side, but still simple. Sound is WAY deep and throaty, but I added for the ~29#'s weight savings and a bit more open exhaust so I could delete the Boss side pipes...a bit high school those side pipes for me. WIth side pipes pulled saved 40#'s or more. For those of potential concern...I do track my car and go to Laguna Seca on 90db days. I was VERY concerned this might be an issue, but it passed no problem.

    Nice compromise

    Initially purchased Flowmaster Outlaws and they sounded awesome, but embarrassingly loud. AM was helpful in recommending the Kooks. Beautifully crafted. Felt lazy after I installed the outlaws so I went to Midas and they did a fine job. Best feature is the rumble at idle, otherwise pretty tame but satisfying. The kooks look much better then the outlaws, IMHO.

    Exceptional quality

    I have always heard KOOKS products were very good, and I was not disappointed at all with this axle-back. Very high quality and I could not ask for a better fit and finish. Its not the loudest axle-back out there, but it is perfect if you have plans to remove the factory resonators, or install an offroad midpipe.

    Deep muscle car sound

    I spent days researching watching videos and reading reviews. I decided to go with Kooks because of the reputation they have, and the sound on a few videos. They took maybe 45 min to install very straight forward, perfect fit! At first start up to idle they have a nice low and deep sound, not crazy loud but definitely enough to know the sound is coming from a 5.0. At wide open throttle these come to life!! Cruising at highway speed there is no drone. I am very happy with these, I didn't want the ricer sound that a lot of axle backs have and these definitely do not. True mustang sound!!! Well worth the money the welds are true craftsmanship you can not go wrong with Kooks!

    Best axle-back exhaust for the 5.0 - Period!

    I've owned over a dozen Mustangs in the last 20+ years with tons of modifications being made to each one. Exhaust sound and look has always been a big deal to me, and I can honestly say the Kooks axle back is by far my favorite exhaust to date. The fit and finish is superb and the sound is amazing, not too loud, but just right, and no noticable drone. Installation is also breeze if you know your way around a car. I would definitly recommend this exhaust to anyone who wants their 5.0 to sound as bad as it looks. Kooks is more expensive than some, but the quality is well worth it.

    Great sound

    Install was simple, the axle backs are a light compared to the OEM axlebacks. Love the exhaust note, it sounds exhilarating when stomping on it. Quality is top notch and the welds look great.

    Great low rumble

    They sound very good, give the low rumble I was looking for without being overpowering. Not to bad to install, just wish I knew about the need to drop the pan head bar to get the stock mufflers out. So if your doing them make sure you look up how to do that or you'll never get them out.
