    Review & Install Video

    Hey, I’m Justin with, and I’m taking a closer look at the Bassani axle-back exhaust for the 2011 Mustang V6. The first thing I noticed when checking out the Bassani kit is that it incorporates a straight through race muffler design that’s going to be slightly more aggressive than your traditional chambered mufflers, such as the Magnaflow Street series or even the Borla Touring series. However, thanks to that extra packing around the muffler, you can expect it to be just a bit quieter than the Magnaflow Competition series, which incorporates no mufflers whatsoever into the design. The Bassani system is constructed from 100% stainless steel all the way down to those dual 4 inch polished tips, which feature a very unique slash cut design. Getting this kit installed on your ride should only take you about an hour using standard hand tools. Now let’s hear how your Bassani axle-back system sounds compared to your factory exhaust.

    Aggressive exhaust note. Bassani's Axle-Back with it's street performance race mufflers will give your 2011 or newer V6 Mustang a more aggressive exhaust note, than that of the factory exhaust.

    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 Bassani Axle-Back exhaust system will fit the 2011-2013+ Mustangs equipped with the 3.7L TiVCT V6 engine.

    How many horsepower can i expect to gain with these type of exhaust?


    • The main thing you gain is better sound and looks over stock. You may gain a few horses.

      Sounds good but...drone

      After much research I decided to order Bassani. I was looking for an exhaust with a deep sound and not obnoxiously loud, especially when you start the car in the morning. The Bassani offer all that and more...if you are cruising around town. At high way speed they drone like crazy from 2200-3000RPM specially if you are cruising 75-80MPH. They emit this annoying in your ear hum that just drives me crazy. It doesn't even sound like an exhaust to me at that speed. They do sound good if you keep the speed around 60 or RPM goes pass 3000 RPM. Supposedly Bassani mufflers are known for droning, wish I had known before I wasted my money which I'll never get back. I'm planning on ordering the Magnaflow Street Series Axle-Back which also has a deep sound and don't drone.

      Auditory excellence!

      After recently upgrading to a 2012 Mustang from my '08, I decided it was finally time to add the upgrades I never got around to in the first place. Always wanted the tone to my car, but I just never got around to it. So, research began. I looked at all of the "standards;" Borla, Magna, Flowmaster, Rousch and just couldn't find anything I liked. Until I came across some Bassani clips on YouTube. I was immediately hooked and the sound was just was I was looking for (we'll get to that later). Installation was a breeze, sort of. Other reviewers mentioned they've done this without lifting the car and having only spent an hour to an hour and a half on the install. Not the case with my install. While it took just over 2 1/2 hours (a short day for many), I found it pretty tough to break the bracket that held the stock mufflers to the pipes. A little bit of elbow grease took care of that, but once removed I had a tough time actually sliding the stock mufflers off said pipe (Ford REALLY made sure mine were on tight). A little WD40 and what was left of my elbow grease took care of that little issue. Once those two items were addressed, actually installing the Bassani axleback's was a breeze. Now, on to the sound: Awesome.. Just AWESOME! Deep bass tones upon ignition and absolutely NO RASP when getting into higher RPM's (this was a huge deal when I was considering exhaust.. last thing I wanted was to sound like some souped up Honda or Nissan). I considered the Roush axleback setup before I found Bassani, but there was too much rasp in the high RPM's.. something I didn't want. The Bassani's produce an exotic, deep, unique sound for your 'Stang. I've gotten quite a few compliments since installation and it's sure to turn heads. Drone? Virtually none. Drive with the windows down and you're going to hear it, however with the windows up during some highway driving around 70-75mph it's just a little bit louder than stock. Accelerating through the gears sounds phenominal, but the car does quiet down quite a bit when cruising. Honestly, get the Bassani's. They're unique and not really something you've heard on Mustangs before, but don't lose sight of the classic, nostalgic Mustang low end rumble and throatiness. Absolutely NO complaints and nothing but love for the new add-ons. Those polished tips sure make the backend of my car look beautiful, as well!

      Perfect sound for the V6

      This exhaust sounds great on the V6. I am not sure what Roberto is talking about when he said that the drone is too much. (installation fail?) There is barely any drone in the cabin with this system. You can barely hear it under light acceleration. It is still easy to have a normal conversation, use your hands free, or talk to sync. The sound is excellent under hard acceleration and if you Rev it hard. There is no beating the sound of a V8 w/ exhaust and the V6 will never sound as good as a V8. But this system does have an exotic sound and sets your V6 apart from the rest. Looks and Sounds great on my 2012 MCA. I highly recommend it!

      Automatic owners beware

      First of all let me say the fit and finish was excellent. These were very well made and looked amazing on the vehicle. They sound great on start up. The tone is very low, not raspy or overly loud, but they scream at wide open throttle. The deal breaker for me was the horrible drone at 1700-2000 RPM. I've read it is not as bad on the manual shift vehicles, but on my '13 V6 auto it was mind numbing. My wife refused to ride in it, sadly I agreed. Bassani blew me off when I called. I sold them for a loss. Now after countless hours of research I'll be ordering the Borla Touring. I gambled and lost. Automatic owners beware.

      Start Your Engines

      Alright guys this is what you need to know; with the Bassani axel-back exhaust you will feel like you are driving a whole new car, a V8 to be precise. The sound is so richly deep you will catch yourself turning your car on and off again just to hear that beautiful start up purr and wasting so much gas revving your engine at every chance. They truly give your V6 mustang a head turning appeal when you want it but relatively quiet at idol and at low speeds so you don't wake up the neighborhood (unless you want to of course). The truth is that there is some of that dreaded drone that a lot of people can't seem to get past but honestly my fiance says she enjoys the drone because she is constantly aware of the power under the hood. Installation was relatively simple and took me and my friend 2-3 hours on a cold night. The left is slightly misaligned and we could not figure out how to get them both the same but it's mostly a non issue. Overall I love almost everything about this set up and encourage you to enjoy the true sound your beast has hidden away. You will hear all 300HP that your 'stang has to offer. Oh don't forget to toss those huge clunky stock exhaust in the trash!

      Very Deep

      They sound very deep I mean deep which is good and bad. The good sounds like a v8 since its so deep with a gurgle. The bad is that it vibrates things inside the car around 1500 to 2 grand. Still love em and they sound awesome outside the car. I was looking for a deep exhaust that wasn't overly loud or obnoxious and these fit the bill. However highway I haven't herd any drone their actually really quiet for me there but I also have 273s. Very simple to put on as well no fitment issues or anything. Took 30 mins with a lift.

      2011 Mustang V6 Bassani Axleback

      I listened to nearly every exhaust video on Youtube and it came down to the Magnaflow or Bassani. I chose the Bassani and I am glad I did. The overall quality is great. The finish and the tips are beautiful. The sound is incredible. Great deep sound. It is not obnoxiously loud but when you hit about 3500 to 4000 rpm it really begins to howl. When wound out it has an almost exotic sound.Fairly quiet at idle and at 65 mph, with 2.73 gear, it is hardly noticable. Some people have complained of drone but it's not bad. Maybe it's just me, but I swear the car feels stronger. If you are considering the Bassani you won't be sorry.

      Perfect exhaust note.

      Looked at a lot of exhausts, listened on youtube as well but it's hard to tell exactly how each one will sound. Took a gamble with Bassani and am glad I did. Fit and finish is perfect, took about 45 minutes total to install. Cutting the spotwelded clamp strap was tbe hardest part and I simply used my air powered cutoff wheel. They mufflers look great, are probably half the weight, and the fit is perfect. Both my wife and I love the sound, not loud and obnoxious, just has a solid healthy tone to them. They sound real good when getting on it a bit. There is a slight drone at about 1500 rpms in 6th gear but neither of us minds it one bit, reminds you there is some horsepower. Extremely happy with this purchase, would be even happier if they were $100 cheaper but hey everyone deserves to make few bucks.

      I wanted something that got loud under acceleration but not bad cruising and this is it. I could not be happier with the way this sounds, a whole lot meaner than stock. Took me less than an hour alone with a jack and two stands, very simple install.

      Bassani > Roush

      I purchased the Bassani Axle-backs after having the Roush ones on for six months. The Roush were good, but alittle too loud for me. The Bassani's actually produced a lower tone, and are perfect throughout the rev range. I recommend these to anyone who wants a "perfect" sound out of their 3.7

      Above 3k = delicious, below 3k = drone

      if you are interested in getting this set of axle backs, I would recommend removing your mufflers and driving around for an afternoon. If you cant handle that amount of drone, than I would look into other sets. I enjoy the overall sound below and above around 3k rpm, but they do indeed have buckets and buckets of drone around town.

      Annoying drone ...but nice exhaust

      I bought /installed this exhaust on my auto 2013 mustang v6, I properly installed it, took about a hour or two. It has an annoying drone from in the cab, I'm a sound engineer so I know my frequencies, and this thing creates a bad frequency at almost any speed, and vibrates anything loose in the car. Sounds nice during idle but much too quiet, but like i said... too loud while driving(not a good note), ..when you rev it it sounds nice but you can't ever rev it without looking like a snob". I miss my peaceful stock exhaust, this got old to me after a week. Like I said, nice exhaust, but not quite what I was hoping for.. It fits pretty good. Looks good, I thought the stock tips looked just as good(not quite but almost)...not much of a difference. Simple install. Not good for road trips.

      Nice mellow sound

      I already had a Magnaflow street axle-back on my 2012 V6 with stick shift and absolutely loved it compared to stock but I thought the Bassani might be better yet. The sound clips convinced me that it may be a bit louder, with a nice rumble, but not too loud overall. That's exactly what I got. It's maybe 10% louder than the Magnaflow...I was hoping for possibly 25% to justify the cost though. Bottom line...either one is a huge improvement over stock with the Bassani slightly louder but I probably wouldn't do what I did again because of the cost. The other major improvement I did that I would recomment to anyone with a V6/standard transmission, is the 3:73 gears. I also have a cold air intake with a Bama tune. My daughter has the exact car but with the stock gears .. and it really bugs her that her Old Man's car is faster than hers. It's really fun to wind this thing up with the 3:73 rear and Bassani exhaust. Oh..and she has the Magnaflow exhaust on hers so that's why I think I can make an accurate comparison between the two.

      I purchased this for my 14 auto and am taking them off after 5 days. The drone is unbearable. From 1500-2500 rpm the whole cabin vibrates and you can't even hear the exhaust over the horrible drone. I even went to a local exhaust shop and had them put in MagnaFlow resonators hoping to keep them as I like the overall exhaust sound (when I can hear it) but it did not help at all. And I am 24 so it's not the case of my being too old to tolerate it being "loud". It's not exhaust note, only DRONE

      I swear it's only a v6

      I recently purchased and installed the bassani exhaust on my 2013 mustang v6 and I am very pleased with the deep note that it produces. I have had numerous people approach me at stop lights and mistake my car for a 5.0. Some people don't believe me when I say it's only a v6. Plenty of compliments, real head turner. Just like stock on idle but definitely a different car once rpm rises. Sounds beautiful when you start the engine. Your gonna love how this exhaust sounds in tunnels or when driving close to walls, or when the sound bounces of the cars you pass. The fit is spot on, this was my first exhaust install and I got it done in 2 hours

      Love Em

      I had these on for about 6000 miles now and I love these things. There was drone at first on the highway and when cruising but now I don't hear anything when cruising. These things are pretty mellow at low speeds and slow accel and almost silent at idle. When you open it up though.........these things are downright nasty, it's the loudest things on the road most of the time and will turn heads. I had a guy in a Chevy Chevelle tell me I was sweetest sounding V6 he had ever heard and most other V6's sound like lawn movers when revving. Made me nod and go online and write this review.
