Review & Install Video

Hey, everybody. I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and this is my detailed review of the Borla ATAK Axle Back Exhaust System available for your 2015 and up Fastback GT, with your choice of either a black or polished tip. Now right off the bat guys, I can tell you that the ATAK from Borla is going to be for the S550 GT owners out there who are looking for an axle-back. It is going to deliver a lot of volume even with that factory resonator still in place. Now the ATAK is Borla's loudest and most aggressive muffler they offer for the S550 GT here at AM and stands for acoustically tuned applied kinetics, which is basically Borla's way of saying, "This thing is going to be loud, but it's not going to get sloppy or distorted the louder it gets." And as you guys just heard with the sound clips, this thing is certainly going to deliver that aggressive tone, but my opinion it's a slightly higher pitch tone, especially when compared to the Borla S type muffler, which is a slightly deeper tone. Overall, an easy four out of five of my one to five or one to wake neighbor scale. Again, guys, this is with the factory resonator still in place. Replace that resonator with an X or H pipe, add some long tubes into the equation, and you have essentially pegged the loudness meter. So again guys, to summarize, if loudness is one of the biggest deciding factors when choosing a muffler, the ATAK from Borla and the Corsa's sport muffler are going to be your two top choices here on the site. Now that Borla is certainly going to cost you a lot less compared to the Corsa, and overall it's going to come in around the $700 range, which I think is going to be your average price point for a lot of the big name aftermarket axle-backs, such as Borla, Magnaflow, Cooks, Ford Racing, things like that. Now if all of those names I just listed, you can expect pretty great quality, 304 grade stainless steel throughout here with the Borla, the patented ATAK series mufflers, two and a half inch mandrel bent tubing, and finally those large orange tips embossed with the Borla logo. Again, you can pick them up on a black chrome finish or a polished finish like I have on the table. The ATAK, much like any other aftermarket exhaust system here axle-back, is a cut and clamp design, meaning it's time to break out the fun tools. Now I myself prefer a Sawzall along with a fresh metal blade, but whatever you have on hand to do some cutting should be just fine. Now, it's not a hard install, but because you do have to cut, I'll call it two out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter, about an hour or two in the garage or driveway before you're making some noise. All right, guys. To wrap this up here, if you're looking for something that's going to be loud right out of the box and only get louder with supporting mods, such as your mid pipes or long tube headers, then the ATAK is certainly going to be the muffler for you. On the other hand, if you're looking to keep things quiet and stay under the radar, then you might want to consider something else. Either way, learn more about the Borla's stuff for your S550 GT here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Loud Aggressive Sound. Add a touch of Borla excellence to your Coyote powered S550 GT Mustang with an "ATAK" axle-back exhaust system. A Borla "ATAK" axleback system will significantly increase exhaust flow over the restrictive stock exhaust system for a dramatic increase in rear wheel horsepower and an 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. Manufactured from ultra smooth mandrel bent 2.5" diameter T-304 stainless steel tubing to improve exhaust flow, this Borla axleback exhaust system 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.

Cut & Clamp Installation. The installation of this Axle-Back Exhaust requires cutting and removing the stock muffler assemblies, and clamping the new muffler assemblies in place. Clamps and instructions are provided.

AApplication. This Borla ATAK Axle-back exhaust system is designed for use on 2015-2017 GT Fastback and Convertible Mustangs equipped with the Coyote 5.0L V8 engine.

I have seen a lot of V6 Mustangs with this Borla Exhaust. Will this fit my 2016 V6 or did they get some kind of custom set up?

Mustang89

  • Unfortunately, this axle-back is not designed for the V6. In order for this to fit properly, you may need to do some modifications to the exhaust system.

    Excellent Quality and Sound!

    The Borla ATAK is a very high quality axle-back exhaust with a truly anazing and unique sound. Install was not bad at all, took our time and took a couple hours. Very straightforward instructions from Borla no surprises. Sound is a deep muscle car tone. Not too loud as I was actually expecting it to be a bit louder(I like it loud) but a really nice strong tone that I haven't heard duplicated. Upon acceleration it does roar pretty good. The tips are beautiful and the item comes extremely well packed from Borla. want an amazing and unique sound that not everyone will have this is the exhaust for you. And I like to mention always fast shipping and excellent service from the American Muscle Crew!

    Perfection

    Had the magnaflow axle backs before I ordered the Borlas, I just wasn't happy with the magnaflow sound. The Borlas are exactly what I was looking for. Under 1800 rpm it isn't very loud which is nice for leaving in the mornings or late at night, but get on the throttle and it sounds mean.

    This is the big V8 should sounds like..

    If you guys want an exhaust with a much more aggressive and louder sound than stock, and don't want anything that is too loud for daily driving and wake up your neighbors, the borla atak axleback is a really good choice. It's have the same kind of of sound clip with the atak catback, but has less volume than the catback, and sounds slightly deeper. But of course it's much louder and nicer than the stock mufflers. When you cruising on the highway, you can't even hear it, however if you step on it and accelerate, you will hear the real solid American muscle car sound with no drone at all. This is the exhaust which you can daily driving and I believe if you do not drive and step too crazy , cops won't pulls you over. Installation is easy and straight, took about 1 hour to finish. Overall, good product by Borla!

    Borla ATAK Axle Back Exhaust

    I purchased the Borla ATAK axleback exhaust system for my 2015 mustang GT on the recommendation of the Tech Support staff because I was concerned about drone and this is the system they recommended. I had it installed at a local muffler shop for 50 bucks and it only took about 30 minutes. The mustang now sounds great! The system produces the rich aggressive sound that I was looking and there is absolutely no drone. I could not be more pleased with the purchase and would buy it again without hesitation. I would recommend this system to anyone who wants a great sound and no drone.

    The borla atak are the best bang for the buck you can buy. They have a very aggressive sound thru out all rpm's. The look from the rear of the car beats the factory hands down.

    Best Exhaust Note out there

    I installed the same system on my 2012 GT. When I bought the 2015 GT this was the first add on I knew I had to get! The exhaust plus the install is about 1000.00 but it is well worth the price. Absolutely no drone, good sound at idle and between 2500 RPM (relatively loud from the outside, and hardly noticeable from the inside). Between 3-4500 RPM you really hear that agressive throaty sound.. and when you floor it past 4000 RPM you get that bat out of HE(double hockey stick) sound! Perfect for someone who wants a genuine, old-school exhauste note but then very loud and aggressive when you punch it.

    Borla Atak Axle Back 2.5 W Heartthrob x pipe 2.5

    Worth it! Sounds great at idle coolstart, regular idle. You can really hear valve overlaping, which i like. WOT Sounds great. Happy with my purchase. Noticed 1/10 mpg increase and locked there weather flooring it or cursing. Next install with be headers. Recommend this over any axle back. My opinion.

    ATAK at will!

    This exhaust is great. I paired it with a ford racing x pipe and the volume is just wow. The aggressive loud roar at higher RPM’s is so addicting, and what’s great is at low speeds it’s like it’s not even there. I’m not going to lie when I drive past people and they role up their windows it makes me smirk hah! Great product.

    Love Mustang GTs American Muscle

    Borla's axle-back ATAK is a must-have for all GT/Mustang owners; it installs in 10'--no wielding needed--enabling the mustang to be a stallion, not a castrato. Otherwise, drive a fiesta/fusion baby...All gratitude goes to Alex Borla's genius and American Muscle who has the Best prices in town! Cheers...

    Good tone.

    This, combined with a custom H Pipe sounds very good. At RMPS from 1000k to 3000k and it sounds really deep, right at 3500k rpm, it really opens up, the tone does get a lot higher pitch and raspy, but that is just how the coyote sounds. Very loud exhaust system, totally in your face type of loud. But it does sound very good.

    sounds great but overpriced

    This by far is the best sounding Muffler for a 15-17 GT. I coupled mine with the SR performance X-pipe. Sound is crisp, loud, and no drone. Turns heads everywhere I go. If you want loud and raspy, go with this. But is it really worth $800? No

    LOVE THE SOUND

    While I love the sound, they didn't fit well when just bolted on. No matter what I did they were lopsided and way too close to the valance on my 2017 GT. I had to do some welding fabrication to get them centered. The polished tips look great. These are a direct bolt on if you don't mind them looking lopsided.
