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.

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.

How does this compare to the catback sound wise? Do they sound much different?

  • I would assume that it sounds pretty similar. I have this axle back kit on my 2012 gt, it sounds amazing, I would highly recommend getting it.

    Review from Borla ATAK Axle-Back Exhaust (11-12 GT)

    Glad I spent an few extra bucks!

    I installed these in under an hour using a 3/8 drive ratchet using a 9/16 and 15mm socket and of course some WD40. A couple tips for the installation, spray the rubber support hangers with WD40 (my car is new so didn't need to spray the clamp bolts), unbolt the clamp and remove bolt completely, once you get the muffler separated from the rest of the exhaust you will now need to wrestle it off of the rubber hangers, while under the car I used what I had next to me to prop up the exhaust using the can WD40, push the remaining exhaust pipe up as far as you can and place the "can" between the exhaust pipe and the black support brace it goes over, this will keep it up out of the way while you wrangle the muffler off of the rubber hangers, you may also loosen the rubber hanger bracket to give you some flexibility with getting the old muffler out and then installing the new one, once you have the new muffler supported by the rubber hangers you can now pop the can of WD40 (or similar wedge) out allowing the exhaust to come down and mate with the muffler, the clamps are tacked onto the old muffler but are easily removed with a back and forth motion, install the clamps and while tightening make sure to adjust the muffler for proper fitment at the Chrome tip. Just wanted to give some added shade tree mechanic tips. The difference in sound is very subtle at idle but when you mash the pedal the aggressive sound will put a smile on your face, the sound is pure and well...AWESOME!!! No drone detected at any rpm and the tips look great unlike others where the tip is 4" and yet when you look in the tip you see the 2 1/2 inch tailpipe which makes it look fake these tips are 4" nearly all the way to the muffler. Hope the tips help!

    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!!!

    Review from Borla ATAK Axle-Back Exhaust (11-12 GT)

    Very Nice

    I'm pleased with everything except three things. The mufflers were not shined up like the picture which is not a huge deal. However, I wrestled the old mufflers off and fought to put the new ones on. Granted I only had a small jack and myself but it wasn't as easy as some people made it out to be. Also the instructions told me I would need a 3/8 socket and a 15mm socket.. Neither one fit the strap.. and the strap was tack welded to the stock muffler and Borla doesn't supply extra straps so I ended up breaking the tacks to put on the new mufflers... other then that I love them

    Review from Borla ATAK Axle-Back Exhaust (11-12 GT)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
