Will this muffler fit a 2013 Mustang V6 Automatic? I want to be absolutely sure about this before I buy.


  • Actually it will - just mounted it on my 2013 V6 within 20 minutes only. You may just need new clamps (which are not a part of Axle-back delivery) but even stock ones (if not too old) can be used easily.

can this exhaust fit a 2010 mustang, if it cant why not?


  • your 2010 v6 should be a single exhaust set-up stock. In 2011 they switched to dual exhaust and have continued since. but you can get a dual exhaust conversion and will get much greater performance and sound out of your pony but if you choose not to, AM offers single mufflers for single exhaust set-ups like yours.

Question Resolved

Most of the people that wrote reviews for this exhaust agree that it's a nice deep sound with no drone, and they are very happy with it. However there are three reviews that say that this exhaust with an automatic trans is horrible... is this true? I have an auto and i don't want to get this if it's true. Also what would make this exhaust worst than other exhausts for auto trans? Doesn't make sense to me. Thanks


  • Some of the reviews state that they can hear the car shifting. You should be able to hear the car shifting to each gear because of different RPMs. Though, there should not be a "transmission noise" when the car actually shifts. There are not many differences between this exhaust and other chambered mufflers. All those comments were made a few years ago. If there was any issues, they should be solved now.

Question Resolved

i have this exhaust, a v6 2012 automatic, and airaid cai,bbk 73mm throttle body,bbk catted xpipe, bbk chrome long tube headers, and a race tune. is this setup restricting my sounds like the car is holding back a few breaths and when gear changes, the sound whistles or hisses, so much that it messes up the regular sound, and gets louder then the regular sound. why is this, does anyone has this combination or a similar one that has worked better?


  • In terms of the noise, after market cold air intakes have been known to make a whistling noise once installed. On the other end, with your exhaust, it's possible that you have up to 3 different piping sizes between 2 different aftermarket brands and your stock exhaust, going from the headers to the Magnaflow Street Axle-back Exhaust (11-14 V6), which may be manipulating the sound a bit and/or the throttle response. And to build off this, it is definitely worth talking to your tuning specialist about your throttle response as well.

    These axle backs were very easy to install. The only thing you may want to have is clamps because one of my existing clamps broke while taking off and not one Ford dealer had one in stock and had to order.

    Nice deep mellow V8 sound

    My son and I listened to video after video trying to find an exhaust that would be close to the V8 muscle car sound. Not an easy task with a V6. After a call to American Muscle, we decided on the Magnaflow Street. Wow, I'm glad we did. It has such a sweet, deep mellow sound. No ricey or poppy sound like a Honda with a fartcan on it like some of the other V6 exhausts we listened to. Installation went very well. I wish that Magnaflow had included clamps though because taking the clamps off the OEM mufflers was a pain in the rump due to them being welded on the OEM muffler. Once we fired it up and went for our first ride, I couldn't keep the smile off my son's face. The sound is just great.

    Wooooooooo........ What A Sound

    Wow.I'm impressed. After weeks of listing to exhaust sound bites and seeing video clips on youtube I went with Magnaflow street series. They sound great.They are slightly louder then stock at idle but Between 1500-2500rpm that is the sweet spot. Thats were they sound the deepest and mellowest like a v8. Nowhere in the rpm range do they sound like a import tuner. I should know I have owned 3 Nissan 350z over the last 6 years. Above 2500rpm they keep a nice deep tone ,but they are not overly loud. Also there is no drone sound in the cabin so you can hear yourself think about how cool it is that you own a Mustang. I strongly recommend these to anyone looking for a deeper more v8ish sound out of there v6 mustang. Also I would recommend a Bama tuner,C&L cold air intake and a throttle body spacer. all of which I have bought from American Install start to finish took me about 1 hour. You can Download the instructions from the Ford Racing exhaust page.That's what I did. It made the install way easier.

    DEEP and melow

    I looked at lots of systems, and listened to dozens of sound bites and a few in person. I knew I didn't want droning popping sounds like flowmaster or to sound like a Japanesse tuner. After Installing these I can't believe how deep they sound, not raspy, no pops when you let of the gas, it just sounds like old school big block power. No real instructions, and you have to reuse the clamps on the stock system. After the main chore of getting the old ones off these aligned up nice and easy, both were dead center first shot. Love them, get these!

    Installation Experience

    I have found that the reviews at AM have been very helpful and I want to return the favor by addressing some uncertainty that I had before my installation experience. I have a 2011 V6 which had under 4K miles at the time. 1. You will note that some people had an easy time installing the Magnaflow Street in under an hour. Others like myself took an entire afternoon- 4 hours. The probable reasons for the different time requirements are due to whether the installer obsesses over the details and whether it is difficult to get one or more of the pipe tips aligned in the cut outs. My driver side pipe alignment was out of kilter and I had to undo all the hangers to get some play and still muscle the pipe into alignment while I tried to tighten the band clamp to hold it in place. So there is a luck factor in play. My passenger side was much easier and quicker. 2. I did have to remove the two bolts holding the driver side of the black cross-member to get enough room to get the driver side OEM muffler out of the front rubber hanger. The driver side is where the pinched fingers occured. 3. Plan on using WD-40 on those black rubber hangers. It is really hard without it. 4. The band clamps are tack welded to the OEM muffler for a reason. It is so they go on straight and seal properly. You will have to cut or bend them off to reuse the band clamps. That is pretty quick process with a hacksaw. But without these being tack welded to the Magnaflow, it is much more difficult to get them so they are not canted when you install and tighten the bolt. 5. The most difficult part is getting the OEM driver side muffler off. That is when the cursing began. The Magnaflows are much lighter than stock and because of the way the prongs for the hangers go, it is much easier to install them than to take off the OEM. This will only take a few minutes. 6. As I indicated, I was one of the unlucky ones who had one pipe (driver side) pipe off kilter. It took me a couple of hours of adjusting (pulling, twisting etc) to get it somewhat centered in the rear valance cut-out and so that it looked aligned with the passenger side. The only way I could do it was to have the clamp somewhat canted. It is canted enough that it hits the tack welded on lip of the pipe, but it still seals properly. So there you have it. Was the effort and cost worth it? In a word, yes, but I am glad it is done with. The sound is perfect as others have described. It is just a tiny bit louder than stock at idle, but it has a really nice throaty sound on acceleration and I experienced no drone. I have not found any pops that some have complained about. I suspect those pops may be due to people not having it on properly clamped and having an air leak before the muffler which reduces back pressure too much. Hope this helps!

    Sounds excellent

    Just installed these mufflers on my V6 2011 mustang - you will not be disappointed...they wake up the v6 and give you that low rumble you need. Not too much just enough a little louder than your stock mufflers and when you step on it ...sounds excellent. The videos do not do justice for these you got to hear them in real drone, sounds great and gives you that muscle car tone you want. Highly recommend these mufflers to all V6 owners...Thanks American Muscle for the advise on the phone and the quick service you provide. These were easy to install about 1 1/2 hours for me....wear gloves you will need it or forfiet cutting your hands like I did......Cheers

    I own a 2012 Black Mustang V6 mustang club of america edition, with the performance package and I just love the car. The only problem was that the exhaust note was ok but it really lacked that mustang sound that I wanted. I looked high and low and did way to many hours of research on the internet and the pro shops around. I was going to go for the Borla Atak system because I heard great things about it and hey, something that cost more then the rest must be good and they are a fantastic company. But I really didn't like the pop noise and it just didn't sound deep enough for me, so I checked out the Magnaflow Street exhaust and instantly I fell in love. The order from American Muscle was so easy and the person I spoke to was amazing and so professional. I love this exhaust and it is exactly what the 2012 mustang v6 should sound like. Wow is an understatement.

    2011 3.7L awesome sound

    Just bought a 2011 Mustang V6. I wanted a more aggressive sound so I initially tried the Flowmaster Force II axleback system and it was... okay. The only thing it did was change the tone a little bit to sound more like a Nissan 350Z. There was also a popping noise with both the stock exhaust and the flowmasters when you revved the engine up any higher than 2500 rpms. Everyone told me this was normal and would occur with any exhaust system. I decided to give give these magnaflows a shot and i couldn't be happier. Sound is slightly louder, not obnoxious. The tone sounds like a stock gt especially in the lower rpm range. the car breathes a little better and best of all, no more annoying popping noise when you rev it up. Easy install and the tips look great. Highly recommend this system if you want a deep exhaust tone similar to that of a GT. I've had many guys come up to me thinking it was the 5.0

    Great at full throttle, not so geat with normal driving

    Fit and finish are top notch and sound at WOT is fantastic. Everyday normal driving with these mufflers drove me crazy. If I had a manual transmission, they may be ok, but the constant shifting of the automatic and the droning at low rpm was too much. I've removed them and put the stock mufflers back on.

    These mufflers sound great

    I installed these mufflers this weekend. The directions from Magnaflow are very limited and incomplete. There is a strap spot welded on the ball and socket clamp that must be broken, in order to remove the stock mufflers. Also,there are two hangers that hold the stock muffler to the chassis. To remove the rod from the hanger nearest the tailpipe, slide the rubber isolator off the muffler hanger rod. I used two large screw drivers for this. The other hanger is more complicated to remove, as one would need to slide the stock muffler forward to remove it from the chassis. A better method is to remove this hanger (there are two to three bolts which fasten these hangers to the chassis). The most difficult fastener to remove is in the center of the hanger. I used a 1/2" combination wrench. Putting on the Magnaflow exhausts is much easier, as the hangers on the muffler aid in installation. They point towards the front of the vehicle, which is the way Ford should have done with the stock mufflers. I used a strip of cardboard, folded up and stuffed between the muffler tip and the body to make sure I had enough clearance, and tightened the ball & socket clamp. The tips look great and the mufflers sound great. I highly recommend these mufflers.

    I listened to many exhaust systems and read many reviews on-line before making the Magnaflow choice. My V-6 has such a wonderful throaty 8 cylinder sound now. I am very happy with the purchase. It did get slightly louder after about two weeks of driving, but definitely not obnoxious. This exhaust was the best aftermarket thing I've ever done to a Mustang.

    Easy install, great sound

    It's more of a personal opinion but if you don't like the popping noises most of the other exhausts especially the critically acclaimed atak make, this exhaust is for you. It's really low but not to loud up to 90 mph. I installed it without even jacking the car up... never thought not having lowered the stang yet would come in handy. Hardest part is cutting the seal on the stock exhaust... I tried for 15 minutes using leverage to break it until I crawled out from under the car and fetched the dremel.

    Sweet N Sexy

    Took me like 35 min to install these axle backs, i bought it from AM two weeks ago and now i am doing my review of it. let me start of by saying that the comparison video is way different from what it sounds like in person. they are louder than the factory ones but they keep a nice deep tone and when you step on it, it's just a monster. after a few weeks of driving with it on it has mellowed down and gotten deeper, which is great. sounds like a v8, got a lot of people thinking it's a v8.

    Not Obnoxious

    Well it's a V6 and will always sound like a V6, but a solid improvement over the stock exhaust. Had them installed at local Ford dealer, about 45 minutes and no issues at all. Only had 300 miles on the car and hated to throw out the brand new stock mufflers but what the heck was I going to do with them? The sound is deeper and louder than stock but mellow and not obnoxious like some 16 year old kid driving a fartmobile. Still no real deceleration sound which I would like between shifts, but that's ok. Overall pleased but really feel the car should sound like this from the factory. Recommended.

    As good as it gets for a V6...

    Installed a set of these on my 2014 V6 coupe. I've yet to hear them outside the car (and honestly I don't really care what they sound like to others), but inside they sound great. Not too loud, not too quiet... just right for a cruising car. I highly recommend these to someone looking for a little more noise, but nothing obnoxious. The installation is a breeze. The hardest part is definitely removing the stock exhaust. I HIGHLY recommend loosening the mid-pipe first (15mm socket) and then loosening the axle-back clamp (13mm socket). Without loosening the mid-pipe screws I couldn't get the new exhaust to line up correctly. The tips were wayyyy off, and the attachment was so bad that the sound was off too. Further there is no reason to remove the muffler hangers. Just wiggle the stock exhaust around a bit and it comes right off (a little WD40 on the hangers probably helps too). Lastly, to really perfect the sound (for this car and any car with an aftermarket exhaust) I definitely recommend installing some sound insulation in the trunk (I used frost king heat duck insulation). It really helps deepen/smoothen the sound inside the car.

    Steer clear

    While the fit and finish are top notch, the sound these mufflers create is boring...unless you are always driving like you stole it. They may sound ok with a manual trans, but the automatic makes the v6 sound like a mass transit bus when driving normally. Not exactly what I was looking for...

    terrible drone & vibration with Automatic Trans

    The interior noise is unacceptable in that there is a distinct noise and vibration under foot comparable to a rusted out header pipe or muffler which sounds like a Nissan inside while the outside tone is fine - I attribute this to back pressure generated by he muffler to generate the outside tone but what is really irritating is the changing pitch of the noise caused by the six speed automatic transmission - the pitch changes with each gear shift of the high reving V6. I would only recommend these for use with the manual tranny version of the V6. I am having them removed as I can't drive the car without getting a headache. It's not the product - it's the application.

    I bought my son a 2012 Mustang V6, and he wanted a more agressive exhaust sound. We purchased the Magnaflows, and they sound great. He loves them. We think they could be a bit louder, but they do sound much better than the stock mufflers. I have purchased many products from AmericanMuscle, love the products, and the great service!
