    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with a review and install of the Borla ATAK Axle-Back Exhaust for the 2005 to 2009 GT Mustang. We're gonna be talking about a few different things with this exhaust today, but mainly we'll talk about the sound of the axle-back and the install. The install for this is easy. It's a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. There's no doubt in my mind that the Borla ATAK is gonna be for the GT owner out there that's looking for a high-quality system that's gonna deliver a ton of sound. The ATAK is by far the loudest and most aggressive muffler in the Borla lineup, which also includes the Touring and the S-Type. Borla says that ATAK stands for Acoustically-Tuned Applied Kinetics, which is basically Borla's fancy way of saying that this muffler will be loud, but it's not gonna get distorted or sloppy. So the main component in the system is really gonna be the ATAK mufflers, and that's the component that is really gonna set this system apart from all of the other options out there. Borla designed this muffler to be very similar to a race muffler and its less sound absorbing materials than Borla's other options. The course of the mufflers are custom-tuned for the GT Mustang, and they give it a very specific and aggressive sound. Borla says that it actually produces the highest available decibel level that's street legal. There isn't any drone with the system, which is actually a pretty awesome feature to have being that the system is as loud as it is. There also isn't any of that high-end distortion that you normally hear with a loud system. The system does have some raspiness to it, and a crackle or gurgle on decel occasionally. If you compare the ATAK system to the Touring and even the S-Type, in my opinion, it's more of a higher pitched tone. I'd say that the Borla S-Type muffler produces a slightly deeper tone. Now, with all that being said, I am gonna give this a four out of five on the loudness scale, one being a very quiet system, and a five being a very loud system. Keep in mind that if you ever change your headers or your mid-pipe down the road, this could open up even more noise for you. So if your biggest deciding factor when you're shopping for an axle-back is loud, I'd say that the ATAK from Borla is probably gonna be one of the top choices here at AM. If you aren't looking for that loud, then Borla does have those other options that I mentioned already. When it comes to materials, you're looking at 2-3/4-inch manual-bent stainless steel tubing. The ATAK mufflers are Borla's race-type mufflers, which are straight-through mufflers, and this system has 4-inch prune stainless steel tips with the Borla logo embossed on them. As far as price, you can expect to pay between $500 and $600 for this axle-back. Like I mentioned earlier, this is one of the top of the line options as far as tune, sound, materials, and fitment, so it is gonna be on the more expensive side. Luckily, if this one's out of your budget, then there are a ton of other axle-backs for the Mustang that you can check out. This is a direct bolt-on item, so you're looking at a very easy install. I'm gonna call this a one out of three wrenches on the scale when you look at difficulty. Overall, you're looking at about one hour to get this all done. A lift would certainly make things easier for you here, but the job can be done on jack stands as well if you don't have access to one. This axle-back very simply folds right up into the stock location, so you won't have to cut or modify anything. Just looking at dropping your old axle-back and the new axle-back will come with new clamps for you, so you don't have to worry about that. When you're going to install your new setup, it will probably be easiest to leave everything loose until you have it all lined up, and then tighten it down. Wrapping things up here with the Borla ATAK Axle-Back, this is a loud system, the loudest from Borla, and it doesn't hav

    Loud Aggressive Sound. Add a touch of Borla excellence to your 4.6L GT Mustang with an "ATAK" Axle-Back Exhaust System for an extremely aggressive muscle car sound that is not for the faint of heart.

    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. Constructed from ultra smooth mandrel bent 2.75" stainless steel tubing to improve exhaust flow, the Borla Axle-Back exhaust system features two race inspired "ATAK" mufflers with 4 inch polished stainless steel slant tips for aggressive sound and impressive looks.

    Application. This Borla Stainless Steel Exhaust System is specifically designed to be a direct bolt on upgrade reusing factory hardware for the 2005-2009 4.6L GT Mustangs.

    Does this fit 2008 shelby gt500 i can see the pipe size is different then the stingers,what is the main differences on the atak and the stingers!?

    • Unfortunately this axle-back exhaust will not fit the GT500 models. In regards to the difference between the two Borla exhausts. The Borla ATAK will be much louder when compared to the Borla Stingers.

    I have an 06 Mustang GT with stainless works long tube headers, no cats, with x pipe and turbo s exhaust and it’s NOT Loud at all!! The problem I have is my pipes are 3 inches all the way. Rather then changing out my whole system, can I possibly make it work with what I have and put the Borla ATAKs on??? And will I lose any power??

    • We have not tested the Borla ATAK Axle-Back Exhaust with the Stainless Works S-Tube Turbo Cat-Back Exhaust, however we do not believe this would work without modification due to the difference in exhaust diameter. There may also be differences in the angle of the piping between the Muffler and the Over Axle Pipes.

      Switched from Outlaws with no regrets

      Installed these to pair with my catless x pipe. Had flowmaster outlaws before, but the ataks seem to have a more aggressive tone with a little less noise and no drone. Well worth the money.

      Borla atak for 2007 mustang GT!

      I bought my first car, a 2002 Mustang GT in 2014 and it had borla s-types. I loved the way those sounded, so when it came time to make my 2007 GT sound like a muscle car should, borla was my only option. I went back and forth between the S-types and the ataks for a while, but I finally pulled the trigger on these. And I must say, I am not the least bit disappointed or unhappy! My car sounds incredible and exactly the way i wanted it to! Not super drony either, which was another concern. AM got them to me super fast and the hardest part of the install was lining up the bolts with the holes! Took maybe an hour and a half. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to make their 3v mustang sound truly incredible!

      Sons 08 sounds mean now!

      My son bought these for his 08 GT and the difference it made from factory pipes was huge! Before, it sounded weak, now, its loud but not overbearing. He has a convertible, so with the top down, it sounds mean. But not so mean you can't hear the radio(at a few notches higher). I would highly recommend these!!

      Sounds like a car should.

      On cold starts I get a beautiful crackle and pop especially on revs. The highway drone is little to none and the product looks fantasticly bold just jetting out the rear with huge tips

      Borla Atak on 07 GT.

      I just installed The ATAK's on my 07 GT and I am extremely happy that I selected BORLA. The Fit and finish and assembly was easy. I purchased 2 hangers for the front attachment towards Bumper and used my existing Hangers (Good Condition) for the attachment closest to the Axel. The Fit from Borla was dead on!. The sound is amazing when you get on it and NO drone!.I also feel the engine breathes a little better and performance is slightly elevated. Not to mention American Muscle delivered it in just 2 days!! thanks AM!!

      Bad fitment

      The fitment on the passenger side one is to short so it is really hard to get it adjusted like it needs to and took a lot longer than a hour because of the old ones did not come out of hanger and then tht passenger side took a while because of the shortness of the pipe they sent me
