Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and today I’ll be taking a closer look at the Bassani Axle back exhaust system for all 2005-2009 Mustang GTs. If you’re familiar with Bassani, then you know they make a quality exhaust system that tends to put them in the same class price wise as Borla and some of the Ford Racing axle-backs as well. We’re looking at a very nice, full stainless steel construction throughout, including these highly polished 4” tips and race muffler. The term race muffler usually refers to a straight through design, as opposed to a more traditional chambered muffler, which is great at keeping the sound down, but won’t flow quite as good as something like this. Getting this system installed on your S197 is a simple bolt on task that should take you no more than an hour using some basic hand tools. Now let’s hear how the Bassani axle-back sounds compared to our factory exhaust.



Aggressive exhaust note. Bassani's Axle-Back with it's street performance race mufflers will give your 2005-2009 GT and 2007-2009 GT500 Mustang a more aggressive exhaust note, than that of the stock GT.

Street performance. This Axle-Back system from Bassani features free flowing street performance race mufflers that end with a 4" rolled edge slash cut polished stainless tip that exits in the stock location for great looks and improved performance.

Lifetime Warranty. The Bassani Axle-Back exhaust is precision-engineered from resilient stainless steel for long lasting durability and is backed by Bassani's Lifetime Warranty.

Fitment. This Axle-Back exhaust system will fit the 2005-2009 GT and the 2007-2009 Shelby GT500 Mustangs for great looks and great sound.

Technical Note: Americanmuscle recommends adding the 2005+ Mustang 304 Stainless Steel Exhaust Hanger Kit from the drop down option above, to provide more strength, stability and a cleaner installed appearance. If you have a 2007 Mustang you may need the kit for correct installation.

Can only one be used on the 07 V6 mustang or would the pipes not fit it ?? I will eventually do a dual exhaust this year.

  • The Bassani Axle-Back Exhaust is not compatible with the V6 Mustang's stock exhaust. This would require a dual exhaust kit designed to utilize a GT axleback.

How would these be with Kooks Long Tubes and Off road X pipe in comparison to the SLP loudmouths I have currently? Headers and X pipe go on next weekend. I just don't want my car to be obnoxiously loud.

  • This Bassani Axle-Back Exhaust is a much more mild exhaust when compared to the SLP Loudmouth Axle-Back Exhaust, Item 23013. The long tube headers and the x-pipe will ultimately alter the sound of the exhaust, however, we would recommend listening to a few sound clips of stock vehicles with both kits for a general comparison, if you are unable to find sound clips of your exact application.

Since I have an 06 G.T. , do I need to purchash the additional hanger brackets, or will the hangers on the mufflers be sufficient? Thanks, Jeff

  • Hi, Use of the 2005+ Exhaust Hanger Kit is not required to install this Bassani Axle-Back Exhaust, But i do recommend them to provide more strength, stability and a cleaner installed appearance.

Will it be just as loud for my automatic mustang? I currently have glass packs on it but I want something louder more muscle car rumble

  • I can't see any reason why it wouldn't be just as loud. They are definately louder with a nice deep rumble.

    Oh My!

    I did a lot of looking and listening before I pulled the trigger on the Bassani system. I did not want a super loud system for my 08 GT500 convertible but did not care for the stock system either. I don't know if it gets any better than this! The install was perfect and not difficult. I had way more trouble getting the stock mufflers off than I did installing the new system. I love the oversize polished tips compared to the stock tips. This system is not terribly loud but sounds great. No interior drone either. This is what a GT500 should sound like. Nice work guys!

    Just what I was looking for

    After a long search listening to many sound clips I settled on the Bassani, the install was as easy as it gets, the fit and finish was superb. I didn’t want anything that was obnoxious just a little more volume and a deeper rumble. The bassani delivered. I couldn’t be happier

    Not more rumble

    There is no rumble to these at all. Put them on - took them off. Absolutely immaculate fit and finish. REALLY sweet product, unless you want a little rumble.

    Sounds perfect

    I've gone through three sets of axle back pipes and these are perfect. I was tired of the deep drone at 70mph in 6th gear and for long trips it drives you crazy. I didn't want to lose the strong sound at start up and these give me exactly what I've been looking for. Too bad I have to spend over a $1,000 to get the right sound.

    Bassani muffler

    These mufflers were quieter than stock and the echo from them is teeth rattling at 1800 rpm . Gonna look to change these asap.

    Bassani rocks

    I first bought a set of Pype Violators. I couldn't stand the low rpm drone plus the muffler shop had to modify them to install. I purchased these Bassani mufflers and I installed them with no problem. The drone is gone and they sound great in all situations.

    Bullitt Mustang

    These new Bassani are awesome and sound very good. Although I liked my factory Bullitt mufflers they weren't quite loud enough for my tastes these stay quiet at normal driving but scream when you put the hammer down. I will never use anything but Bassani on my mustangs. This is my second purchase of Bassani products I've done. Loved em on my fox and now on the Bullitt. Always great quality.

    Smooth and Deep

    If you are looking for a deep smooth rumble look no further. I've had FR500's, GTAs, ATAKs, and routings. The Bassani's just sound better, no drone. I'm running LT's with cat and I've run it caters, zero drone. Just sexy smooth rumble.

    The Bassani sound

    I've had these on another S197 GT Mustang I've had before in the past matched up with a Bassani o/r x-pipe and JBA shorty headers, it sounded absolutely wicked and sweet! I love the sound these Bassani axle-backs make, Bassani produces a very clean, smooth, crisp, almost exotic type of exhaust note that's a bit different from other's on the market. I bought these again to replace the Flowmaster Outlaw axle-backs I have on the new 06 GT I bought a year ago, I plan on going LT headers and o/r midpipe again, can't wait to hear how it all turns out! Bassani's quality is also top of the line for what you pay, I just had to have these again, I love Bassani!

    Wonderful Thunderous Perfection

    This makes one of the most absolutely unique sounding exhausts. I have a dual conversion and jba headers on my v6 and now paired up with these, it sounds incredible! It isn't raspy at all and the drone is barely noticeable. When it is noticeable, it is extremely tolerable. I have driven many hours at a time and it's okay. I can't recommend these enough!

    Sound Sweet

    The install was easy and everything needed was in the box. The sound is typical Bassani (I had a set on my 03 Terminator). It has a deep and aggressive sound to it. It is not overly loud at normal acceleration but I suspect that they will get louder as they are broken in. Put your foot into the gas and they are plenty loud. No back off when you let off the gas and a little drone when cruising at a steady speed.

    Great Product with awesome sound.

    I love Bassani from my previous experience in my other stangs. They were pretty easy to install. However I did run into one issue. My passenger side did not fit using both hangers I have to leave a hanger off after trying two different new sets of axle-backs. Not sure if this was isolated to just my car. I did speak with AM customer service and they were awesome and did tell me it was ok to leave a hanger off. Besides the fitment issue, I love everything about these and the sound is perfect, not too loud but just aggressive enough to gain attention. I also get little to no drone to boot.

    Had my Bassani axle backs installed today they sound great noticed a difference right away with more power off the line . Could be a little louder, shop said they will get louder after break in. Would recommend these to anyone with a 05 thru 14 mustang
