Review & Install Video

Hey everybody, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com. This is my review of the Borla ATAK Cat-Back Exhaust System available for your Fastback 2015 and up Mustang GT. Borla is and always will be a premium exhaust company, and that certainly hasn't changed here with the 2015 and up Mustang systems. The one thing I really like about Borla is the amount of options they give you when choosing the right system for your ride. For instance, with the 2015 and up GTs, you have the Ford Racing by Borla sport and touring systems, you have the Borla S-type or Stingers, and finally, the Borla ATAKs which I have with me here today, all with their own little unique differences and sound characteristics. The ATAK isn't just a cool name. It actually stands for acoustically tuned applied kinetics. It's basically Borla's fancy way of saying that this thing's going to be loud but they're going to try to keep it from getting sloppy or distorted the louder it gets. As you guys just heard, this thing certainly is loud, and for that reason, it's an easy five out of five on the one to five or when to wake the neighbors scale. Only the Corsa Extreme might be a little louder, but it's really close. This thing certainly is going to deliver. With that being said, if you're after a quiet exhaust system for your 2015 GT, the ATAK is not going to be the system for you. Borla does give you a few options when grabbing the ATAK for your ride. For instance, you have the option of picking up a polished tip which is kind of a stock offering with the ATAK, or for a few bucks more, you can opt for a black tip. In addition to that, you can pick up the system in a two and a half inch mandrel bent offering here like we have on the table, or again, you can spring for a three inch diameter system. For most naturally aspirated daily drivers or street strip guys, the two and a half inch system is going to be the ticket. However, if you're considering big power through forced induction or otherwise, then you might want to consider going for that three inch system from Borla. The build on the Borla is completely top notch as you might expect when forking out top dollar for a premium Cat-Back System. This includes 304 grade stainless steel throughout, two and a half inch or three inch mandrel bent tubing like we just talked about. The X-pipe style crossover pipe here is definitely going to add to that aggressive tone working with those patented Borla ATAK series mufflers, all exiting out the four inch slash cut tips embossed with the Borla logo. Again, when you are forking out big money for a premium Cat-Back, you expect this thing to be built well and it is of course, but another expectation is that it's going to fit well. That's certainly the case here with the Borla ATAK. This thing practically put itself together on our 2015, and for that reason alone, it's an easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter getting this thing installed underneath your ride. Of course, obvious statement of the day, this thing is installed underneath the car, so make sure you have your jack and jack stands ready to go, race ramps, or a lift if you're one of the lucky ones. You should be making noise in about an hour or two from start to finish. Again, this is only going to fit your Fastback GT. It will not fit your convertible. Just make sure you're ordering the correct system for your ride. If you're on the hunt for quite possibly one of the most aggressive systems for your 2015 and up GT, the Borla ATAK should definitely be on your short list, and you can find yours right here at americanmuscle.com.

Loud Aggressive Sound. Add a touch of Borla excellence to your coyote powered S550 GT Mustang with an "ATAK" 3in Cat-Back exhaust system. A Borla "ATAK" catback system will significantly increase exhaust flow over the restrictive factory exhaust system for a dramatic increase in rear wheel horsepower and an aggressive muscle car sound that is not for the faint of heart.

Race Car Growl. The included Borla X-Pipe not only helps increase power and performance, but it also adds a more raspy, race car like growl to the sound of your exhaust with its modern "X" crossover pipe design.

ATAK. Acoustically-Tuned Applied Kinetics, is Borla's newest technology that produces the highest available dB (decibel) levels to pump the volume while retaining clarity of sound, avoiding distortion typically found in louder exhausts.

High Quality Construction. Manufactured from ultra smooth mandrel bent 3" diameter T-304 stainless steel tubing to improve exhaust flow, this Borla catback exhaust system includes an X-Pipe and features (2) race inspired "ATAK" mufflers with 4" chromed stainless steel tips that are embossed with the Borla logo for both impressive looks and great sound.

Works with Factory and Aftermarket Headers. Borla engineered their 3" catback exhaust to work with both the factory manifolds and larger aftermarket long tube headers by including step-down adapters and intermediate pipes. This lets you install the catback on your bone stock Mustang with the option of adding long tube headers or other performance parts in the future without having to purchase a whole new cat-back system.

Application. This Borla ATAK 3" Cat-Back exhaust system is designed as a direct bolt on replacement for all 2015-2017 GT Fastback Mustangs equipped with the coyote 5.0L V8 engine. Not compatible with convertibles.

Does this cat back system require a tune due to the off road x pipe?

EricB

  • This is not an off-road x-pipe. The Catalytic converters are a part of the manifolds and not the mid pipe thus meaning this item will not need a retune.

Is there much of a difference between the 2.5" and 3" options in the way of sound? Also, eventually I plan on getting headers, again would the power gains between the 2.5" and 3" be any different?

JohnDoe

  • When it comes to the Borla ATAK 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust against the 2.5" exhaust, there are some minor differences. With the 3" exhaust you will notice a bit deeper of a sound compared to the 2.5". Also, once longtube headers are installed there will definitely be an increase in performance compared to having the 2.5" exhaust with a lot more air flowing through the car.

How much HP would this system add? 2015 (Mustang GT)

BertH

  • The Borla ATAK 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust has not been rated by Borla, and this exhaust is recommend for vehicle with substantial upgrades, so the gains would vary from application to application.

I would like to know whats the difference between Borla Attack 3in catback and borla by ford performance which is more expensive than the Attack. So which one is louder and more HP the attack or the Borla by ford performance?

LaimisS

  • The Borla ATAK 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust will be slightly more aggressive and louder in sound than the Ford Performance by Borla Sport Cat-Back Exhaust, which will be slightly throatier.. Power gains will be identical between the two exhausts.

    Amazing sounding exhaust!!!

    Exhaust was very easy to install, had no issues at all, and was able to do it very easily in the driveway with a jack and some stands. Sounds amazing really woke the beast up with this cat back exhaust system. Not too loud in the cabin or when idling, but when you put your foot down and get those RPM's up the exhaust is loud and definitely a huge improvement over the stock exhaust! Puts a smile on my face everytime I hear that roar!

    Love the sound but clamps not so much

    I know the clamps were meant to help those who can't weld but my clamps got loose and front of the x-pipe fell so I had to reclamp it. Waiting to just weld it whenever I have time

    How to make a horse angry!

    Bought the ATAK 3 in. and it's incredible. It really has no drone. Keep in mind though that if you have the Performance Package you will have a low growl you can hear on the highway if you're going 75mph due to the different gearing: However it is easily drowned out by talking to your passenger or listening to music. Personally, I love the sound: it is intoxicating. It can be complete murder outside the cabin while the inside is nice and pleasant. You will be able to hear a slight crackle at times when upshifting or getting off the gas. Cold starts sound better than any other exhaust I have heard and bystanders will either love you or hate you. When going through drive thrus you will absolutely murder ear drums, so that's always an upside. The sound is excellent for allowing you to know what RPM you are at without even looking at the tachometer, which is a nice plus. You also get 1-2 mpg better all around. Acceleration feels a bit quicker, you almost don't quite notice how quickly you get up to speed sometimes.

    This exhaust simply sounds amazing. It's quiet when you want it to be and simply screams when you floor it. There is no drone on the highway, the exhaust lined up perfectly with no issues. It is definitely worth purchasing.

    worth every cent

    Loud and agressive but subtle when you want it to be. Got the catback and the gt sounded like a whole new car. Exactly how a mustang is supposed to sound. Add these with the borla headers and you will not believe the sound you get out of a stock engine. I did the install parked on the street with Jack stands by myself. Much easier and safer to use two people to remove the stock system though.

    Madness at WOT.

    When idling in the driveway and cruising the ATAK makes sweet and low music. When you mash the gas and wind it out to 7,000 RPM it's like you just drank a boiling pitcher jagermeister and SLAPPED your grandma. Kind of Jekyll and Hyde. VERY LOUD AT WOT! I blipped the gas and made some lady drop her burrito in the Taco Bell parking lot. Having a ball being a HooN!

    Loud, mean, and powerful!

    There is no way you can get this cat back and be disappointed. Had high expectations and knew it would be awesome, but those expectations were exceeded. Has the deep rumble at the low rpms and raspy race car growl the higher you go into the band. The only complaint I could see someone having is that its to loud haha. Great quality and sound, this is exactly what I was looking for. The Borla Atak system is awesome!
