    Review & Install Video

    Hey I’m Justin with and this is my brief overview of the Bassani street race axle-back exhaust fitting all 2011 and newer Mustang GTs. This kit from Bassani gets its name by introducing these two straight through race mufflers, which are very similar to the Magnaflow competition series. The two benefits of using these mufflers are a very free flowing exhaust which is going to free up some power, and a very aggressive exhaust note especially when compared to stock. This axle-back features 3” mandrel bent tubing flowing right into that race muffler and out this slash cut 4” polished tip. Both the tip, and the race muffler itself are embossed with that Bassani logo. Since this is only an axle-back versus a full catback, the install should be a lot easier, really it should only take you about an hour. Now let’s hear how the Bassani street race 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 2011-2014 GT 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.

    Application. This Axle-Back exhaust system will fit the 2011-2014 GT Mustangs for great looks and great sound.

      Great Sound, Poor Quality

      Loved the exhaust for the first little while and then after about 3 months the inside of both tips began to rust and it is visible from the rear of the car. The horrible Bassani Warranty service said it is just water deposits. I scrubbed off and the 'stainless steel' was stained and pitted. Their warranty will not cover this. So much for stainless. I have had Magnaflow and Borla stainless before and they did not do this. Do not buy for this reason, the sound is good, but there are better options out there.

      Sound Of Muscle

      Order was placed on Friday , Recieved them late next week. Took about 20 minutes to install them, and make them sit right. First time starting it up with them I was stunned. This has to be the best exhaust for the 5.0l engine. No rasp, no annoying burps. Just pure sexy, muscle car v8 exhaust. Please note though, they are not for everyone. There is a slight drone at 1800-2000 rpms, its not to loud, but it is there. I dont mind, the radio covers it fine. I would recommend these to anyone.

      A real head turner

      I love my 2012 5.0 but the stock exhaust was terrible. This is a Ford V8 in a Mustang, it shouldn't be polite sounding. I've had prior experience with Bassani on a previous mustang and have always been happy with their products. As cheesy as it is, with the stock exhaust, no one ever took a second glance when I rolled by. Now, I get thumbs up all the time. Adding these simple axle backs made my Mustang sound like it was supposed to: mean. The installation was simple enough, took 45 minutes with hand tools and some wd40. could have done it quicker but I didn't jack the car up and it's been awhile since I've worked on a car. Loosening the rear hanger support and lubing the rubber hangers with wd40 helped a lot. The drivers side muffler is much harder to get free than the passenger side. After removing the stock mufflers, I found myself asking why Ford got everything right on this car except the mufflers. They are big and bulky and make the 5.0 sound too quiet. To each his own I guess. Supper happy with the Bassani axle backs. Will be getting their whole system, long tube headers and all after saving up some $.

      Terrible Drone

      I am experiencing terrible drone with the Bassani Axle Backs. My car is a 2013 GT with 3.73 gears. The exhaust drone is unbearable at highway speeds, it is so bad that I will be taking these back off the car.

      • Response from AmericanMuscle

        Most people have mentioned a slight drone or none at all so this is somewhat surprising to see. Changing out your midpipe is another way to alter the exhaust note and has helped others with drone in the past. If you'd like any further assistance, please don't hesitate to give our customer service a call.

      Sounds and fits GREAT!!!

      I Timed the install and only took 32 min. with me and my friend.I found it easy to just unbolt the clamp after breaking the little tack weld holding it on and just pulled the muffler out without removing the black hangers at all.Sounds great and looks just as good.

      aural pleasure

      These things arrived the next day after AM shipped them. Got a mechanic to put them on in an hour and a half and they sound 100x better than stock. Aggressive, refined, louder, and with more bass. Less raspy. These are the perfect volume: Louder than stock, but not so loud everyone in the city hates you from 5 miles away.

      Excellent exhaust for the coyote!!

      I'm running this axle back with Jegs cat deletes and the stock resonators. Very impressed with this exhaust, great quality and fit and finish! The sound is one of the best I've heard on the new 5.0 The tone is very very deep with no rasp and no cackling, just a deep aggressive rumble!! Even with the cat deletes this exhaust isn't obnoxiously loud, definitely louder than stock, but still suitable for a daily driver. I have read other reviews that suggest this axle back has a lot of drone, for me that's just not the case. There is a very slight drone at times, but isn't present through a broad rpm range! Give these a shot, you definitely won't be disappointed!!!

      Overall Product

      I researched exhausts for a while and have always like the Bassani sound ever since having an 89 Mustang 5.0. The install took an hour longer than expected getting the old axle-back exhaust off the hangers. I read recommendations to unbolt the exhaust completely off the mid-pipe but I found that by just loosening it allows the axle-back exhaust to be muscled on without the hassle of reconnecting and alignment. This only allows the person to jack up each side of the car for a few minutes while the remaining axle-back exhaust can be installed with the car on the ground. I also found it easier to remove the exhaust hangers, pull the old exhaust off the rubber mount, and re-attach them to the car. The very back hanger will have to be removed, attached to the exhaust and bolted back onto the car since the hanger bar attached to the Bassani axle-back exhaust is a few inches longer that the hanger on the stock muffler. Overall the sound is amazing, (depending on your rear end gearing) when cruising there is a good sound around 2,000 RPM so if you like to drive between 70-75 MPH it has a good loud tone. I like this exhaust since it gives the car a modern aggressive sound with some undertones from an old American Muscle street rod.

      Great axle back

      Having own a sn-95 mustang had bassani cat back, so I purchased this axle back not disappointed great deep muscle tone and sounds very aggressive. Really wakes the mustang up. Installation wasn't hard at all given I work at a dealership so the use of a lift made things easier, but if done on the ground be prepared to break a sweat will take more than an hour. Overall great product the finish is awesome and the tone will make heads turn videos do not do justice for when heard in person.

      Great Sounding Mufflers

      Overview: -Look great -Sound mean -Very little drone -Very little rasp -Easy to install -Highly Recommended. I bought these for my twin turbo setup to have a straight through muffler. Here's my exhaust setup before the axle-backs: -Stainless Works Long Tubes -JBA Offroad H Pipe -JPC Resonator Delete Over-The-Axle Pipes No cats, no resonators, and with a straight through muffler, I figured the volume would be horrendous. I had a chance to drive the car with them on before starting the build. They are loud, don't get me wrong. Much louder than the GT500's that were on prior, but mostly under heavy acceleration and cold startup. Once it warms up it quiets down a significant amount. I was very concerned with drone, but I was very impressed to find there was very little. On a scale of 1-10, it was a 2 or 3 at cruising speed. For not having cats or resonators, these do an excellent job in minimizing rasp, so the sound is quite awesome. Enough to put a smile on my face every time I stand on it. They fit very well and went on quite easily in my garage just using a jack and jackstands in about 2 hours. I would highly recommend these.

      poor fitment

      i got this exhaust for my 2012 gt. i took it to the muffler shop to install it and they would not fit right. the hangers were to long, the connector pipe was long to. so they had to cut the hangers and they also had to shorten the connector pipe so it can fit properly. i ended up paying another 220 bucks to make it fit. i do not recommend this product.

      why get anything else?

      I had a magnaflow street axle back on the car when I bought it, then I installed American Racing long tube headers and their non-catted X pipe and the car still didn't have the exhaust note I was looking for. Then I got the bassani street race axle back, OH MY GOD, what a difference. It now sounds like a race car, and there is no drone anywhere in the R.P.M. range. I have to say this is the best sounding mustang I have ever heard, bar none. The best part is the bassani axle back is almost $300 cheaper than the Magnaflow. So if you want a quiet car DON'T get the Bassani axle back, if you want the best sound you can get for not a lot of money, then buy this axle back. BASSANI RULES.

      Removing the stock mufflers was a bit tricky but fairly simple. Old mufflers were large a bulky and it was a tight working space, once removed I evaluated the situation. This is what I recommend. Lossen or remove the rear hanger brack with a 13mm socket, the top one you will need a swivel head. This will make this job so much easier. Once that bracket is loose or removed you will have much more play to slide the new Bassani exhaust in. Why nobody has come up with this is beyond me! Sldie the two rear hanging rods into the flat bracket and then push the rear bracket onto the rear connecting rod, tighten up or reinstall the rear bracket and start up! Exhaust souds awesome on my 2012 Mustang GT (Lava Red) What a difference!
