    Review & Install Video

    Borla's ATAK we're working with today for the 2011 through 2014 3.7L-equipped Mustang is a great option for someone that's after arguably one of the most aggressive-sounding cat-back systems on the market today. Installation-wise, you're going to be looking at an easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here, and we'll talk about that more later. What you just heard will easily warrant a four out of five on the loud or the Wake the Dead or Neighbors, scale here, and it's really easy to understand why. The ATAK changes out your heavy factory cans for a pair that's going to make more noise. But more importantly though, guys, the overall volume and tone won't be distorted or raspy like some of the cheaper systems out there. Now, this is going to be due to the use of Borla's Acoustically-Tuned Applied Kinetics, which basically means that when the volume goes up, it's going to be crisp and clean. But for comparison's sake, this will be a touch louder, higher, and clearer in tone than their S-Type system. This system absolutely turns heads on the street or track. But the best aspect about it, put simply, guys, is that when you want to drive quietly, it will let you. Now, putting aftermarket exhausts on the 3.7L will cause some drone. It's really inevitable here. But the ATAK muffler will also help calm that down the most cruising around, and you're going to find that it's pretty minimal. Now, while it's taking a four out of five on the Loud-O-Meter here, if you're looking to take this even further, you could install an off-road mid-pipe. But that's something that's going to be extremely loud. Aside from plenty of noise, you're going to be looking at some of the best steel available for an exhaust. That's 304 stainless, to be exact. That's great because of its ability to resist corrosion. Now, this will feature two and a quarter-inch ultra-smooth, mandrel-bent piping that's going to bolt right up to your factory piping. All hangers are tacked on and ready to go and the mufflers end in some great-looking four and a half-inch, polished, slash-cut tips, which gives a nice balance of classic meets modern. Last, but not least, they are going to have Borla's logos embossed on each tip, so everyone around you is going to know where you're getting that sound from. With great build quality, that sound, and last, but not least, having the Borla name, expect to be spending over $1,000 to get these onto your car, and that will make this one of the most expensive cat-backs on the website right now. While I know it sounds a little bit on the steep side, there's a couple options from Stainless Works, and even Borla's Stinger or S-Type that will get you almost the same type of build quality. But from personal experience, it's just not going to have that overall sound that the ATAK is going to produce. Installation-wise, cat-backs go on with little to no effort at all, and you should expect a straightforward two hours' worth of labor, which warrants one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Now, tools for the job will call for a pair of jack stands, a basic socket set, maybe some penetrating oil to hit your factory hangers. You'll want to start by getting your car's rear end off the ground. Then, work with unbolting the existing system from directly behind your factory mid-pipe. Moving on, you'll get to the back of the car and remove the axle-back portion of the system. Then, start back at the mid-pipe, throw your mufflers in place, tighten everything down, get your over-axles in there, and then you're good to go. So that'll wrap up my quick review of Borla's ATAK cat-back, fitting the 2011 through 2014 V6 Mustang, that can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Loud Aggressive Sound. Add a touch of Borla excellence to your new V6 Mustang with an "ATAK" Cat-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 2.25" stainless steel tubing to improve exhaust flow the Borla catback exhaust system features two race inspired "ATAK" mufflers with 4.5 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 for the 2011-2014 V6 Mustangs equipped with 3.7L Ti-VCT engine.

        CAT back or Axle back? What is the difference difference between getting the cat back over the axle back? HP, Sound, Performance?

        • HP gains are little, there is a sound difference though, axle back sounds sorta cheap whereas cat back doesn't, cat back also add quality to the exhaust and it should be done if you plan on adding headers or a mid pipe later on.

        Any horsepower gain from this set up?

        • The Borla ATAK Cat-Back Exhaust is a lot less restrictive than the factory piping. This kit should definitely help free up some horsepower!

        Popping/Backfire I have seen a lot of YouTube videos of this system and it seems every time they let off the gas there is a popping/backfire noise, I am wondering if that goes away with time? Does it happen every time you let off of the gas?

        • There is a lot of popping and burbling with the ATAK. Each time i shift it pops and if you are at a high rpm and take your foot off the gas it will burble down. i happen to love it but its not everyones taste

        Is it legal in California?

        • The Borla ATAK Cat-Back Exhaust will be smog legal in California. You will need to confirm with your local law agency regarding decimal levels limits.

        I plan on installing the borla atak cat back with bbk long tube headers and bbk catted x-pipe (2011 v6), will I need to buy header gaskets, flange gaskets and doughnut gaskets for proper fitment and for all this to fit together perfectly is there gonna be cutting involved?

        • No cutting necessary, all of the exhaust pieces you mentioned will definitely bolt right up to each other! Being that the Borla ATAK Cat-Back Exhaust and the x pipe in question are designed to bolt onto their stock counter parts, they'll bolt onto each other.

            Install Yourself

            Very happy with the quality, sound, and performance of this set! If you are going to install them yourself on jack stands, it can be done but you need to jack up the body of the car, releasing the suspension. You will then need to support the axle, and remove the bolts from the upper sway bar link, and the bolts from the lower shock mounting point (4 bolts total). One side at a time. You can then lower the axle enough to get the pipes over. You might have to remove the rear springs, but they just sit on the axle and can easily be removed.

            2014 V6

            Absolute must! At $1000 for a cat-back, I was skeptical but it was definitely worth the money. No drone in the cabin whatsoever and quiet when you want to be. Of course, you can also make some serious noise when you want to because it is absurdly loud when you're up in the rpm's. Fair warning, whoever said you could install this with jack stands is a liar because no matter how I lifted the car I could not get the pipes over the axles. A lift was the only way I could get the stock pipes off and the new pipes on. I also wish they offered different color/finish tips for the mufflers because I'm not a fan of chrome but other than that no complaints.

            Makes your mustang come alive!

            Compared to the stock exhaust system, this is a huge upgrade. This makes your Mustang roar like no other. I was on the verge of getting Flowmaster or this one, and this is definitely worth every penny.

            Amazing head turning sound

            Borla ATAK cat back is by far the best sounding exhaust for the 3.7 Mustangs. Loud when you want to be and semi quiet when you need to be. My neighbors may or may not like the sound in the morning, but it is beautiful music to my ears. I upgraded from the FRPP Sport Axle Backs which are also made by Borla. I thought I loved those Sport Axle Backs, but I truly love the sound of the ATAK Cat-Back! If you are thinking about purchasing the ATAKs, you need to get them. I promise you will not be disappointed.

            Loud Clean Sound!!

            Just got installed today and this is the best mod that I have ever bought for my mustang. It makes your mustang stand out from the rest. I got the cat-back installed and it sounded different from the start. When you're cruising it sounds normal, but once you step on the gas and it passes 2K Rpm, it unleashes this beast of a roar that I've never heard before! You will have pedestrian and other drivers turning heads. No joke. But the sound is very precise and clean. It rumbles and pops, especially when you rev the car, it's the best sound ever! I love my mustang even more now. Makes it fun to drive for sure.

            I previously owned the Roush axle back on my old stang and when I installed this one and turned it on I was a little skeptical if it was going to be louder then the Roush since the cold start sounded about the same. BUT! When I drove it down the street at the high RPMS it completely destroyed the Roush! This one was 5x deeper and growled a little! Definitely worth it if money ain’t a issue!
