Review & Install Video

Hey everybody, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com. This is my review of the Borla ATAK Cat-Back Exhaust System available for your Fastback 2015 and up Mustang GT. Borla is and always will be a premium exhaust company, and that certainly hasn't changed here with the 2015 and up Mustang systems. The one thing I really like about Borla is the amount of options they give you when choosing the right system for your ride. For instance, with the 2015 and up GTs, you have the Ford Racing by Borla sport and touring systems, you have the Borla S-type or Stingers, and finally, the Borla ATAKs which I have with me here today, all with their own little unique differences and sound characteristics. The ATAK isn't just a cool name. It actually stands for acoustically tuned applied kinetics. It's basically Borla's fancy way of saying that this thing's going to be loud but they're going to try to keep it from getting sloppy or distorted the louder it gets. As you guys just heard, this thing certainly is loud, and for that reason, it's an easy five out of five on the one to five or when to wake the neighbors scale. Only the Corsa Extreme might be a little louder, but it's really close. This thing certainly is going to deliver. With that being said, if you're after a quiet exhaust system for your 2015 GT, the ATAK is not going to be the system for you. Borla does give you a few options when grabbing the ATAK for your ride. For instance, you have the option of picking up a polished tip which is kind of a stock offering with the ATAK, or for a few bucks more, you can opt for a black tip. In addition to that, you can pick up the system in a two and a half inch mandrel bent offering here like we have on the table, or again, you can spring for a three inch diameter system. For most naturally aspirated daily drivers or street strip guys, the two and a half inch system is going to be the ticket. However, if you're considering big power through forced induction or otherwise, then you might want to consider going for that three inch system from Borla. The build on the Borla is completely top notch as you might expect when forking out top dollar for a premium Cat-Back System. This includes 304 grade stainless steel throughout, two and a half inch or three inch mandrel bent tubing like we just talked about. The X-pipe style crossover pipe here is definitely going to add to that aggressive tone working with those patented Borla ATAK series mufflers, all exiting out the four inch slash cut tips embossed with the Borla logo. Again, when you are forking out big money for a premium Cat-Back, you expect this thing to be built well and it is of course, but another expectation is that it's going to fit well. That's certainly the case here with the Borla ATAK. This thing practically put itself together on our 2015, and for that reason alone, it's an easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter getting this thing installed underneath your ride. Of course, obvious statement of the day, this thing is installed underneath the car, so make sure you have your jack and jack stands ready to go, race ramps, or a lift if you're one of the lucky ones. You should be making noise in about an hour or two from start to finish. Again, this is only going to fit your Fastback GT. It will not fit your convertible. Just make sure you're ordering the correct system for your ride. If you're on the hunt for quite possibly one of the most aggressive systems for your 2015 and up GT, the Borla ATAK should definitely be on your short list, and you can find yours right here at americanmuscle.com.

Loud Aggressive Sound. Add a touch of Borla excellence to your coyote powered S550 GT Mustang with an "ATAK" catback exhaust system. A Borla "ATAK" catback system will significantly increase exhaust flow over the restrictive factory exhaust system for a dramatic increase in rear wheel horsepower and an aggressive muscle car sound that is not for the faint of heart.

Race Car Growl. The included Borla X-Pipe not only helps increase power and performance, but it also adds a more raspy, race car like growl to the sound of your exhaust with its modern "X" crossover pipe design.

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 catback exhaust system includes an X-Pipe and 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.

Application. This Borla ATAK 2.5" Cat-Back exhaust system is designed as a direct bolt on replacement for all 2015-2017 GT Fastback and Convertible Mustangs equipped with the coyote 5.0L V8 engine.

The Atak ended up being too loud for me. Will the S-Type muffler work on this same exhaust system?

EddieM

  • The Borla Stinger S-Type 2.5 in. Axle-Back Exhaust will absolutely be able to bolt directly onto your Borla ATAK 2.5 in cat-back exhaust for the 15-17 GT, if you would like to remove the Borla ATAK axle back. We do offer two options for the S-Type axle back which I have provided below for you, the tips will come in a black or chrome finish.

is this california legal?

anthonym

  • This Borla ATAK 2.5 in. Cat-Back Exhaust does not move or alter the catalytic converters or the o2 sensor, therefore not affecting emissions. This cat-back is loud, and it may violate some sound ordinances in your area. We would recommend speaking to your local municipality regarding and sound ordinances in your area.

Will the 2.5" work with supercharger 670 hp or is the 3" better

JohnW

  • I would recommend purchasing a 3" exhaust as the supercharger will obviously make more power and the larger the pipe diameter will allow for a more free-flowing exhaust.

    Amazing exhaust!

    Bought these for my 2016 GT. Very easy to install with two people. The sound is loud!!! If my radio is on, the exhaust drowns it out. No sound at all from the interior, all sound comes from the rear exhaust and when you punch it, everyone knows it, it friggen screams!! Low RPMs, has a great growl. Can't say enough good things about this exhaust. If you want loud, race car sounding exhaust, get this.

    Great sound! Not too loud.

    After reading MANY reviews, I was concerned that it would be too loud inside the cabin of the car. While it is loud outside, Ford did a good job keeping the interior quiet. It's loud at WOT but much tamer while cruising. Under 2000 rpm it's quiet inside the car. It becomes noticeable at 2250-2500. At 3000 you can hear the exhaust clearly but it doesn't drone - you could still easily have a conversation inside without issues. My GT now sounds like a sports car. I love my Borla ATAK catback system.

    Head Turning Aggression

    I own a 2017 GT with a 3:15 rear axle. Great combination as hovering at low RPMs this exhaust isn't too noisy vs a 3:55/3:73 that sits higher in the power band. However when you hit the gas it has the most aggressive, high-pitch growl I have ever heard from a system/set up with cats/mufflers. Sure to turn heard everywhere you go. Installation was a bit laborious as the fit wasn't perfect. Also not thrilled with the clamps from mid-pipe to muffler for packaging reasons.. might have a shop weld them. Be advised that the cold start is mind-numbingly loud. If you live in a dense area you will be sure to wake the neighbors. Overall an A product and great buy. Best exhaust I've purchased to date. Great reviews and insight from American Muscle!

    Best exhaust ever!

    The Borla catback exhaust system is amazing. The installation was easy and the fit on the car is perfect. After installing this catback system my car feels more responsive and powerful. The sound this exhaust makes is as advertised, aggressive and precise. All the way through the rpm range it maintains the clarity of the exhaust note. I was worried that it would be too loud on the highway or at idle but borla makes a superior product. On the highway in 6th gear it's virtually unnoticeable and at idle it's the same case. When u step on the gas that all changes and my car sounds like a race car! It's out of this world! I absolutely love this system and would recommend it to anyone that wants to unleash the potential of sound and power that the Mustang GT has.

    I should have picked this up sooner.

    I've had 5 mustangs over the years, with different exhaust kits from Flowmaster, Magnaflow, Roush. I considered getting this kit on my 14, but in the end decided it probably wasn't worth, it sounded close enough online to the roush axle back. I can now say I was dead wrong, because this has a sound all of its own. When you get it on people WILL look in your direction. However if you want to take a nice cruise it will remain subtle and allow you to listen to music. So if you like it aggressive, with a sound that nearly mimics Bullitt, then this is the exhaust kit you want. The fit and finish is superb, everything lined up and went together nicely. The only small drawback is the price, so I gave it a 3 star for value. But that's not what your buying this for it and you know it!

    Great exhaust for the 2015 GT.

    This exhaust is perfect for any 2015 GT. Cruising around at the 2k rpm range it is a barley noticeable deeper sound. That quickly changed the second you get in the higher rpm range. insall is really easy if you have acces to a lift. The set came with clamps but I welded all of mine together, so my install was a little more time consuming.

    Super easy to install. No annoying drone. Well worth it. My mustang GT was once described as sounding like my mother's Honda Civic. Not anymore! This is how it should sound like straight out of the factory. It's like driving a different car. Did not disappoint in any way.

    High Quality, Perfect Sound

    This is the highest quality exhaust system you can buy. Prefect fit and finish, installed myself on a lift but is easier if you have an extra person with you to help remove the heavy factory exhaust. Fitment was as expected. I still have the factory cats and with this system it is loud at WOT but not too loud when cruising. This system is a little quieter than my 03 Cobra with Stingers and off-road X-pipe, but not by much.
