    Hi Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here, checking out Borla’s ATAK series axle back exhaust system for your 2011 and up Mustang GT. The ATAK stands for Acoustically Tuned Applied Kinetics, which is borla’s newest technology, this allows for maximum decibel levels without sacrificing sound clarity. The kit is constructed from 100% stainless steel, and features 2 and 3 quarter inch mandrel bent tubing, two ATAK style mufflers, and twin 4 inch polished tips. Simple bolt on installation that should take you no more than an hour. Let’s hear how the Borla ATAK series axle back sounds compared to the factory exhaust. (Exhaust sound clips)

    Loud Aggressive Sound. Add a touch of Borla excellence to your new 5.0 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 4.5 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 reusing factory hardware for the 2011-2012 5.0L GT and 2012 BOSS 302 Mustangs.

    My friend has these 2012 borla ataks. I read that it says these don't fit with the 2013-2014. I ended up installing them and they fit just fine (besides the fact they stick out a little more which looks alright to me). So is there any reason I should not have installed them or?

    JamesK

    • Borla makes this axle back exhaust specifically for the 2011-2012 Models, and offers a separate part number for the 13-14. the main difference is the amount that the tips will poke out past the bumper, with the correct year range sitting where Borla intended. If the tips of your exhaust are sitting where they are not interfering with any body components, and the tips sit somewhere you like them, there is no reason not to use these.

    I purchased my 2011 mustang gt already installed with Roush supercharger. I would like to purchase the borla atak axle back. Would I get same sound result even with the supercharger.

    • The Borla ATAK Axle-Back Exhaust features a loud aggressive sound, so it will definitely be different compared to your set up now. The exhaust tone will simply change.

    Hey, I was wondering if this product would fit a 2012 V6 Mustang. From what I can tell all of the fitments are the same. Thank you,

    • Unfortunately that Borla ATAK exhaust is designed to fit the 11-12 GT models. However, we do offer the Borla ATAK exhaust for the 11-14 V6 model: https://www.americanmuscle.com/borla-atak-axleback-2011v6.html

    What is the difference between these ATAK mufflers and the ATAK mufflers for 13-14 GT? What is different about the mufflers design/dimensions. The two sets of mufflers appear to be the same?

    Josephdunz

    • The Borla ATAK Axle-Back Exhaust will vary slightly in the piping included and tip length as the axleback sits slightly further behind the bumper in 13-14 than in 11-12 models. These would not be cross compatible.

    Will adding this mod alone to my 11 GT make it not pass smog?

    • Hi, These mufflers alone will pass a smog test as they do not change anything except sound, I do suggest checking with you local inspection shop to be sure.

      Great product

      Great product. In comparison to the stock exhaust it is night and day. Sounds amazing i like how it is quiet at idle but when you pass 3k rpm it wakes up big time. Took a bit longer to install than i had hoped because i had little to no equipment practically installed while it was on ground but i did it and i love the outcome. The price was worth it to me i got my bang out of my buck forsure.

      Borla ATAT

      I bought these for my sons 18th birthday. He has a 2011 GT 5.0. He loves them! They are loud but he said that they are fine cruising and he can still hear the stereo. One benefit for me is I can hear how he's driving in the neighborhood. All the way through the neighborhood to the main exit.

      Very Expensive Upgrade With Little Return On Investment

      According to other reviewers on this product (nothing wrong with American Muscle company, they are fantastic), I thought I would be hearing a sound reminiscent of a real old-school, almost straight-pipe set-up, but my expectations were just set way, WAY too high after sifting through the comments here. I really need to learn that most reviewers, reviewing car parts, aren't a very reliable source to base my decision on (and you can say that about my review here, if it makes you feel better). My previous Mustang was a 2008 GT with stock headers, stock mid-pipe, and the Roush Extreme Performance Catback exhaust. It sounded freaking beautiful. Loud at start-up, loud on Idle, loud in the cabin (but not obnoxiously loud) just beautifully loud all the time. It made its presence known. I suppose I just got so used to its sound, that I was expecting it out of the new Borla Atak exhaust for my 2012 GT. I knew the straight pipe, catback sound would be difficult to achieve on an axle-back set-up, but I thought by reading these comments for the Borla Atak's, I would be getting the closest to the Roush Extreme Performance that I possibly could. And, the cost of a quality catback set-up for the 2012 GT was way outside my budget. Keep in mind, I have a bone stock 2012 GT, with only the Borla Atak exhaust. I was excited when I received the exhaust and had them installed by QuickLane. Now after the install was complete, on first start-up my heart kind of sank a little bit. I felt the hurt in my gut. The truth is, the Atak's sound is only marginally louder than stock exhaust. The Atak's sound does have a nice muscle car tone, and like I said, they are just slightly louder than stock, which is no doubt a good thing. WOT sounds good and loud, but it's a 5.0 for God's sake, I wanted that engine to be heard from a block away, and this exhaust doesn't deliver it. Again, I'm so accustomed to my previous 2008 Roush catback's, that the Borla Atak exhaust, for me personally, left too much to be desired. They are very expensive for only a minor change in sound. ONLY UNLESS they are paired with mid-pipes and headers. Then I could understand the potential of the Atak's. I will give a major thumbs-up to the 4.5" tips , with the embossed Borla logo's! They are really beautiful, and they fit the rear valance just right! But I can't justify the cost for just the appearance. Simply put, the Borla Atak's are just an expensive muffler upgrade over stock muffler. You interpret this review however you'd like. I feel like I threw a ton of money at a sub-par set-up, and I should've saved up a bit more and sucked up the cost of a proper catback system. I guess I can live with the Borla Atak's for now, but in time, I WILL eventually swap them out for something more respectable to the 5.0.

      Monster Sound

      This pony has awoken, and when you want to be heard you will be heard across town. The thing I like most about this exhaust is once you've reached your speed you can hardly tell you have a performance exhaust on.

      Best Axle-backs Available

      After trying two other popular brands of axle-backs, I tried out the ATAK's. The fit wasn't the best but that is because of my off-road x-pipe. The quality and engineering being the ATAK's, and even Borla is worth the price. The bigger tips look great compared to stock or any other brand. I've heard these axle-backs in person paired with long tube headers, off-road x-pipe, off-road h-pipe, and even with the axle-backs alone. They all sound amazing, so whatever else you are doing from the headers back, it'll sound amazing with the ATAK's. I have very little drone only because I have the catless x, but compared to the other axle-backs I had, it has the least drone by far. They aren't obnoxiously loud at all while cruising or at low RPMs even with my catless x. But, the cold start and WOT are very loud and aggressive and sound amazing. DO NOT cheap out with axle-backs. Buy this set. You will not be disappointed.

      Most Unique Sound for you Mustang

      I am completely satisfied. The sound is just right and doesn't annoy at cruising speeds. The install was easy. Hardest part was removing the Driver side muffler. Took me about 90 min total. It already turns heads.

      Borla ATAK Axle-Back Exhaust

      I found the stock 2011 GT surprisingly quiet for such a powerhouse of a car. Coming from a v6 with Borla's, I got so used to hearing that sweet exhaust note and the stock exhaust just didn't cut it. Even with just the axle back, the ATAK's are about as obnoxious as you can get, and I love it. It has a very distinct roar (yes, roar is the perfect term for this sound) and makes the GT sound like it is one angry car. Letting off the gas at a higher RPM and the popping sounds like a carpet bombing. At a low RPM (<3k) it purrs like a kitten, nice and quiet but once you hit the throttle it screams. If you want to be noticed, buy this exhaust.

      Awesome Sound

      Just ordered the Borla Atak, took about 4-5 days to arrive. I did the install myself in about an hour, no problem with fitment, fits really good and sounds awesome. Did a lot of homework before I went with the Borla Atak. This is by far the BEST EXHAUST SOUND you can ever have....No REGRETS.....American Muscle, thank you for making this transaction easy...

      The best

      Very happy with these mufflers. They weren't quite as shiney as they are in the picture though..which I expected, but still. A lot louder for just swapping out mufflers, good bit lighter, and look a lot better. When installing, it is a LOT easier to just remove the exhaust hanger mounts, slip the hangers in, and re-bolt up the hanger mounts, then bolt up the mufflers to the rest of the exhaust piping. If you're not an idiot, it only takes about an hour. I'd definitely spend the extra few bucks and get this than some ghetto muffler delete.

      An Exhaust Note that isn't even comparable to stock!

      I decided to get these for my 2012 GT after watching many videos of exhaust comparison. Took 5 days to ship across the country but no big deal, they arrived in a well packaged box with plenty of foam protection around them. I knocked it of a point on fit in the review as it took considerable effort to install on the street, (No Garage, No Driveway) but I managed it eventually. The Hangers were an extremely tight fit and required a bit of muscle power to adjust one of them so that they could clear the tight spaces under the car, but nothing more then a slight 2 degrees. When it comes to the finished product the sound can't even be compared to stock it is so amazing. Allows for a fairly nice and quiet cruising speed so your hands free is still usable while your driving but add just a bit of throttle and the beast wakes up dramatically. If you are thinking about getting it but your not sure then you totally should, it is every bit as awesome as you think it is.

      Read this if you are considering buying this exhaust!!!

      I have been looking around for an axle back exhaust for my 2012 GT premium for a while, a neighbor of mine recommended the Borla attack for my car and it is the best decision I could have made for my car. If you're looking for an exhaust stop looking at anything else and buy this one immediately. Sound clips of this exhaust do not compare to how amazing this exhaust sounds in person. It is very shuttle when cursing around but when you put your foot on the gas everyone will hear you. Bottom line buy it!!!

      The ATAK exhaust has a perfect design sound that will get the attention of any passer by. If you want your muscle car to sound like a muscle car then you really have to go for the BORLA ATAK.

      Amazing Muffler

      First of all, American Muscle delivered this to my house in less than 3 days which I did not expect. Props to them on that. Secondly to the exhaust. This muffler (even if you have not modified the rest of the exhaust) makes the GT sound pretty close to a Shelby Mustang. When my shop installed it and fired it up, it made everyone in the garage turn their heads. Also since the garage was making the tunnel effect, it just made it that much more awesome. I took it to an autocross event today (part of our track used the local drag strip), and it made me proud to own a 5.0 Mustang. Especially when I was between the walls on the strip, I couldn't help but run the car at the higher RPMs to hear that 5.0 roar. So in conclusion, Borla makes a great muffler, especially with the ATAK series. Also American Muscle will be my retailer for many more of my future mods to my Mustang.
