    Borla's ATAK we're working with today is going to be a great option for the '11 through '14 3.7L Mustang owner that's after arguably one of the best and aggressive-sounding axle-back systems on the market today. Now, the ATAK requires no cutting, and for that it's an easy one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, about an hour's worth of labor, and I will go over this a little bit more with you later. Now, what you just heard, guys, is easy going to 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 that much more noise. But more importantly though, 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 ATAK muffler design, and that means Acoustically-Tuned Applied Kinetics, which essentially 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 is pretty damn loud, but it won't be the loudest system out there since it's still a four out of five. If you're looking to wake the dead, you can do so with an off-road X-pipe. The benefit here versus just picking up a five out of five system is that you're going to be getting the maximum amount of volume, while still enjoying a relatively tuned sound that's not going to sound sloppy or drone at all. On top of getting one of the best muffler designs available, you're going to be getting some of the best steel. That's 304 stainless, to be exact. That's going to be throughout the entire system, and it will have great welds. Now, this system will hold up the best in winter, at the beach, or rain. So it's going to be great for a daily driver. Now, this features two and a quarter-inch ultra-smooth, mandrel-bent piping that's going to bolt right up to your factory piping. All the 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 pretty nice balance of classic meets modern. Last, but not least here, they will have Borla's logos embossed on each tip, so everyone around you is going to know where that sound is coming from. Put simply, guys, the ATAK is one of the best systems around, and because of that it comes with a higher price tag. With that in mind, all the 304 stainless, and that Borla name, expect to be spending around $800. While I know it sounds a little bit on the steep side, there's a couple other options from Corsa that will net you that same type of build quality. But from personal experience, it's just not going to have the overall sound and presence that the ATAK produces. Installation-wise, axle-backs go on with little to no effort, which makes them a great contender in my opinion. You should expect a straightforward hour's worth of labor, which will warrant an easy one out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter here. So once your rear end is off the ground or on stands, it's merely going to be unclamping and unbolting your factory axle-back piping, pulling the system out from the over-axle pipes, and then pull everything from your hangers. You'll then replace your factory system with your new system, retaining your factory hangers and hardware. Again, a very easy one out of three wrenches on our difficulty scale here, and an hour's worth of labor. So that's going to wrap up my detailed review of Borla's ATAK axle-back, fitting the '11 through '14 V6, that can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Loud Aggressive Sound. Add a touch of Borla excellence to your 3.7L V6 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 2.25" 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 2011-2014 3.7L V6 Mustangs.

        2013 v6 mustang. Should I get borla axle back, or spend more for catback atak? What are the pros and cons? If i decide to get axel back, can it easily be installed to stock pipes?

        • The axle backs will install easier then the cat-backs will. Both exhausts will sound great however the cat-back will have a slight different exhaust tone and a slight difference in power as well for a rather larger sum of money then the axle backs. Overall it would be your personal opinion on which one would work best for you.

        borla atak axle back exhaust i was wondering if you can put this exhaust on a 2013 mustang gt 5.0?

        • This specific exhaust will fit the V6's only, but for a Borla Atak that will fit your GT, check out this page: http://www.americanmuscle.com/borla-atak-axleback-2011gt.html

        Does this exhaust require any kind of welding?

        • This exhaust is a direct bolt-on. Welding will not be required.

        Would installing the ATAK Axel-Backs on an otherwise stock 2012 3.7l Mustang require any re-tuning of the engine? I thought I read that the engine electronics would automatically re-adjust itself after a few hundred miles, but I'm not sure if that's true.

        • You would not need a tune if you are installing just axle backs.

        Is this illegal in california?

        • More than likely this exhaust will not be legal in the state of California. We recommend confirming with a shop or your state ordinances.

            Best Exhaust for V6 by far

            I researched for several months about which exhaust to get for my 2011 V6. I finally made the decision to go with the more expensive option, and I was not disappointed. The Borla Atak offers a mean and aggressive sound without compromising drone in the cab. You can make it loud when you want, and quite when you want. Best of both worlds. Highly recommend.

            My son's 2013 Mustang V6 sounds awesome. Not obnoxious in the neighborhood, but just has that fantastic sound when you put your foot in it. Looks great too.

            perfect

            Exactly what I hoped for. Below about 2.75k rpm is barely more audible than stock during normal driving. Above 3k rpm it wakes right up. The absence of drone is fantastic, and Borla has done an amazing job of making sure the majority of the sound is heard OUTSIDE of the car. Inside with the windows up my Steeda intake is louder, lower the windows and you get to hear it. Perfect for those who want a loud exhaust but still want to be able to hold a conversation while driving. With stock midpipe the tone is very similar to Roushe and from BEHIND the car the volume is comparable, just way quieter inside.

            She finally sounds like a REAL mustang :)

            One of the things that I have always loved about the mustang is that infamous "growl". while the stock exhaust is CUTE, I wanted that aggressive sound. This exhaust definitely delivers that! I got my mustang in November and have been researching different exhausts for the past few months. Finally decided on the Borla brand from all the good reviews and quality ratings, and went with the ATAK model for the loud but smooth sound it produces.It is loud but not obnoxious, and not raspy which I wanted to avoid. I LOVE how my girl sounds now, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

            BEST EXHAUST ON THE MARKET

            i had a 2012 mustang v6 with flow master 40s and a resonator delete. it sounded terrible and i wanted something with a deeper but good tone. the 40s had a massive amount of drone in the cab and it sucked. the atak’a have little to no cab drone and they are super loud. you can even here the exhaust with the windows up. they are by far the best exhaust for a v6 i have found.

            Borla ATAK

            The Borla Atak exhaust sounds amazing. I have falling in love with this axle back the only thing that bugged me about it is you don’t really hear the idle you hear it on cold starts but not when the engine is warm. I would say if you get the borla get a x-pipe or a H-pipe with you purchase

            Expected more..

            So, they're louder than stock, but they're not really that loud. I had them for about a month, til I realized i needed more. Also, they're a little more on the higher pitched sound than I'd like them to be. But, of course, it's 3.7 mustang, they run slightly higher pitched as compared to a GT. Read lots of reviews.. it does not make the 3.7 sound like a GT. I ended up adding some BBK shorty headers, which helped deepen it a little but it's still not quite doing it for me. I'd like a deeper rumble and more volume.. I'm considering resonators, but I don't see them on here for a 2014 V6. Install was easy, bolt on and off. I know some people had to buy new clamps, luckily I was able to re-use. Just double check first, see if yours are really rusty, if they are, just get news ones first. I used a cordless impact gun, tooks like 2 seconds.. i recommend the same to ya'll, or else get your ratchets lol overall, easy install. Still.. good sound, I just expected more. Was a bit of a let down. Looks great though, sounds better than stock, easy install, good product.
