The perfect exhaust note
Put this on my 2012 Super Snake with 7/8 headers and holy cow! When you jump on the gas this thing screams! It quiet enough in the cabin but if you are driving behind it you might as well get new ears. This is a must if you have a GT500Helpful (8)

Great sound. It's loud and mean when you want it, but also quiet at lower RPM so it's not droning on and on at highway speeds. Looks great and is high in quality.Helpful (8)

Meanest Growl you could imagine
Borla has outdone themselves once again. The sounds is amazingly mean and throaty. So much better than any x pype, roush, or flowmaster you can buy. I also like the 3" portion and true x pipe, which gives you very little back pressure so your 5.0 can shine. I would recommend this exhaust to anyone that wants great sound, good power upgrade, and amazing back pressure drops.Helpful (9)

Awesome sweet sound.
Well, I researched what exhaust to buy for several months to be able to make the right decision, because I see it more of an investment because of the expense. Based on quality and finish I had two brands to pick from, Bassani and Borla. I had known that both were famous for quality of workmanship. I had heard Borla before but not on a Mustang. I had never heard Bassani before on anything so I decided to wait and finally about a week ago I saw a very well made video on youtube and the guy put Bassani and a Borla on his Mustang. Copy and paste if you are interested to see it (Bassani Axle-Backs vs. Borla ATAK Axle-Backs). The quality of sound of the video was good enough and he used the same protocol for both (apples to apples). I am not saying that Bassani is bad so please don't misinterpret me. I think that both sounded great but I found the Borla to be more aggressive and with a deeper sweeter sound more to my taste and boy I tell you I have no regrets. Quality of materials is really first class and it sounds amazing, super loud when you need it to be and perfect when you don't. Heads up, I am already wasting a lot more gas just running lower gears constantly just to hear the awesome deep sweet rumble. I paid a shop to do the install and the passenger nozzle is touching the rear valance so I am going to take it back to get it straighten out but that was the installer's fault. I also have to say that this is the first time I ordered from American Muscle and I am extremely impressed with the service and super fast free delivery, I couldn't believe it. I ordered an MGW shifter from another company a month earlier and I got it a day after I got the exhaust. An hour after I ordered the exhaust I got an email saying the item had been shipped and two days later I got it. Amazing for such a heavy item. Thanks American Muscle, you surely have a new satisfied customer here.Helpful (10)

Great tone, overrated volume
If you've read anything about the atak system on the forums, you would swear that hearing them would make your ears bleed. That is really not the case. They are definitely louder than stock, but not offensively so. I really wish they were louder, but I'm satisfied with how much sound they produce. They idle at about the same volume as stock and don't exceed stock decibels too much until about 2.5k. They scream pretty well after that, but they aren't gonna set off any car alarms. The tone is incredible. It's a nice growl with a great burbly decel. American muscle was very timely with shipping. Ordered it on a Sunday and it was here by Friday. Unfortunately, the passeng er side muffler had a ding about 4 inches back from the tip. The tips don't stick out far enough for it to be noticeable, however. Still, this is the most expensive catback offered, so that was kind of disappointing. install was very straightforward, with only a couple of headaches. Took about 3 hours on a lift. All in all a great product, but a touch over priced. If I had to do it again, I'd probably go with something that deleted the cats and made a bit more soundHelpful (9)

Borla 3" Catback exhaust
I have been searching for exhaust systems for months now and could not decide which one to go with. After making up my mind I decided to go with the Borla Catbacks and I could not be more satisfied with my purchase. The sound is amazing and loud, and always puts a smile to my face when I turn my car on. Yes, it's a little pricey but trust me, it's worth every penny.Helpful (9)

This exhaust is exactly what I wanted for my vehicle. With my performance mods and tuner it's what the car needed. Loud when you want it, quiet when your cruising around of on highway.Helpful (8)
I own a 2012 Shelby GT500. Will this exhaust match up with the factory H pipe if I wanted to keep it in place or would I have to use the supplied X pipe?
We would recommend using the supplied x-pipe as that is guaranteed to fit. The factory mid-pipe may require modifications.
Does this exhaust drone at all? And is the interior noes overbearing?
Borla does a great job of eliminating drone from their exhausts. Although you will definitely hear some noise in the cabin to most it isn't overbearing, although exhaust loudness is 100% subjective.
Does this setup come with resonators for optional use or is there no resonators at all?
This exhaust will come with resonators as you can see pictured in the product photo for optimal use.
If you guys don’t sell the XR-1 Borla long tube headers no more, then what other headers can be used? I’m planning on using BBK ceramic long tube headers, will they work?
The only long tube headers this is designed to work with are the Borla XR-1 long tube headers by deleting the catalytic converters. This has not been confirmed to operate with any other long tube headers.
I’m planning on running BBK 1-3/4 in. Chrome long tube headers, will work with it? Or do I need to do a specific modification?
This will work with these headers yes.
The Borla 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust is not a part of the Borla Touring Series.
Yes, both of those cat-backs are going to use the s-type mufflers. The only difference between them is that one has black tips and the other has polished tips.
The Borla 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust uses polished 304 stainless steel 4.5" rolled exhaust tips.
The Borla 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust will require the tube heat shields to be removed.
This cat back exhaust system may work with the Stainless Works long tube headers but it may need custom modification for it to work. If you would like to run that setup, please consult with a trusted exhaust shop to see if it would work. On the other hand, the best fit long tube headers for this cat back would be the Borla XR-1 long tube headers item #29022 as they were made to work in unison with each other.
This is not the ATAK system as it does not have the resonators in in this system right before the over axle pipe.
The Borla 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT, 11-12 GT500) will be able to be equipped with either the stock manifolds or aftermarket shorty headers installed as found in the Application section of the item page.
This Borla 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT, 11-12 GT500) will only work with the Borla XR-1 Long Tube Headers (11-14 GT, BOSS) Item #29022 (http://www.americanmuscle.com/borla-lt-headers-1113gt.html). To work with the Kooks long tube headers, you will have to use the Kooks mid pipe rather than the Borla mid pipe, and the cat back section should bolt up to the Kooks mid pipe with no problems.
According to Borla.com, it's the S-type., which they have as part#140389.
The Borla 3 in. Cat-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT, 11-12 GT500) will not delete the catalytic converters without the use of long tube headers.
