Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, guys. Stephanie with americanmuscle.com, here with my review of the Borla ATAK cat-back exhaust system fitting all 2015 and up V6 Mustangs. There is no doubt in my mind that the Borla ATAK cat-back is going to be for the V6 owner out there that's looking for a high-quality system that's going to deliver a ton of sound. The ATAK is by far the loudest and most aggressive muffler in the Borla lineup, which also includes the Touring and the S-type. Borla says that ATAK stands for Acoustically-Tuned Applied Kinetics, which is basically Borla's fancy way of saying that this muffler is going to be loud but it's not going to get distorted or sloppy. So a cat-back is obviously going to replace the factory resonator mid-pipe, and Borla does it with their own midpipe resonator, as you can see right here. Now, this is a two-and-a-quarter-inch system, which is the same as the factory system. And this is manual Benz stainless steel tubing. The system is made from T304 stainless steel, which is the highest-quality material that you can get. And it's also been proven to be the best material for exhaust components. Finally, Borla finishes this system with the ATAK mufflers, which we have already sort of discussed. They're one of the loudest options out there and they're paired with four-inch chrome stainless steel tips that have the Borla logo embossed on them, which gives them a nice look under the rear of the car. There also isn't any of that high-end extortion that you normally hear with loud systems. And I think that makes for a very attractive-sounding system for the V6. The system does have some raspiness to it and a crackle or gurgle on diesel as, well as some pops, but it really just reminds me of a GT sound. This is loud, but I think the tuning of the mufflers keeps the loudness from being just noise. And as you guys already heard at the beginning of the video, the sound is certainly aggressive. If you compare the ATAK system to the Touring and even the S-Type, in my opinion, it's more of a higher-pitch tone. I'd say that the Borla S-Type muffler produces a slightly deeper tone. Now, with all of that being said, I'm going to give this a four and half out of five on the loudness scale - with one being a very quiet system and five being your neighbors are leaving notes on your car asking you to only start it during waking hours. Keep in mind that if you ever change your headers down the road, this could open up even more noise for you. So if your biggest deciding factor when shopping for a cat-back is loud, I'd say that the ATAK from Borla is probably going to be the top choice here at AM. If you aren't looking for that loud, then Borla does have other options that I mentioned already. Currently Borla is the only company producing high-end cat-backs for the V6 and naturally they're going to be the highest-priced. All of Borla's cat-backs are in the same price range for the V6, which is right in between $1200 and $1300. There are other options from companies like Mark and Gibson that are available, and on average, those are costing in the price range of $800 and $900. So if the Borla is a little highly priced for you, you can check those out as well, but just know that the quality, engineering, and fitment of those brands is probably not going to be on the same level as Borla, if that matters to you. When it comes to the installer, you're going to be looking at an easy one out of three wrenches on the scale when we look at difficulty. This is considered a direct built-on item, so you won't need to cut anything or modify anything to get it installed. All that you're really going to need is a socket set, and a lift would certainly make things easier, but the job can be done on stands as well. You're going to be removing the exhaust from your resonator back, so an extra set of hands can make things easier for you here. You'll be moving the rear hangers to the new cat-back, so I'd recommend just taking them off with the factory exhaust when you drop that. It'll just make the swap a little bit easier. The only other thing you'll need to reuse are the front cleanse off of the resonator for the front of the new resonator. When you go to install your new set-up, as usual, it's probably going to a little bit easier if you started by hanging the mufflers first. And just in case you're wondering, the cat-back does come with two new sets of clamps for the rest of the system. You can figure on spending about an hour or two from start to finish to get all of this done. To wrap things up with the ATAK cat-back, this is a very loud system, the loudest of the series of three systems that Borla produces, and it doesn't have a drone or any type of sound distortion even in the higher RPMs. It's also a high-quality system that's easy to install and finishes with orange polish tips to give a mean look to go with the mean sound that it produces. I'm Stephanie, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

Loud Aggressive Sound. Add a touch of Borla excellence to your V6 powered S550 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.

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 2.25" diameter T-304 stainless steel tubing to improve exhaust flow, this Borla catback exhaust system includes a Mid Pipe resonator 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 Cat-Back exhaust system is designed as a direct bolt on replacement for the 2015-2017 Fastback Mustangs equipped with the 3.7L V6 engine. Not compatible on convertible models.

Hi is the resonator and mid pipe of this cat-back same size as the stock that comes in the v6? if so, what is the benefit or difference in getting the borla cat-back instead of the borla axle back? And if I get just the axle back will it be the same sound as the cat-back? thank you

Benjamin

  • Yes, this will be the same. The benefit here is this includes the mid pipe, so it will be replacing your stock resonator with an x-pipe. Otherwise, you're getting new stainless steel piping that is replacing the rest of the exhaust between the mid pipe and the axleback.

It says it is for the fastback V6 but will it still mount on the convertible model? Just making sure that it will still line up with all the correct mounts and everything.

    Where's the Beef? Right here!

    Let me break it down... Packaging, perfect! Installation was about 2 hours and that is with a second set of hands. I put the rear up on ramps and used jack stands and Jack as a secondary and tertiary safety precautions. Remove the factory hanger bolts, place a nice thick soft rag between the muffler tips and the paint as to not scratch it then Loosen the factory clamps from the resonator and slide it off. It will take a little bit of muscle. Then slide the entire exhaust forward some until the mufflers slide out of the hangers. Then, start your install. Put the Shiny new Borla resonator on and clamp it down, then your pipes. I found that one person installing the pipe and the other hanging the muffler at the same time made the fitment process so much quicker. I can't imagine doing this alone. Then all you have to do is make a couple adjustments to line up your Bad A$s Chrome tips and fire it up! WOW! All I can say is what a difference. Completely changed the exhaust note and beefed it up! HP Gains? Ya, definitely. Haven't had it on a dyno yet, but easy to feel the definite increase in HP! Thank you American Muscle! @Magnetic3.7

    Excellent exhaust! Adds an aggressive roar when accelerating and a sweet little rumble when idle. When cruising there is no drone sound at all. I wouldn't mind a little louder of an idle but don't get it twisted this exhaust is hands down amazing. Highly recommend and very nice looking!

    Borla ATAK Cat-Back Exhaust V6

    I purchased this exhaust in order to remedy the very anemic sounding Ford stock exhaust. I had it installed by my regular mechanic shop. The exhaust tips bend slightly towards the center of the car because the mechanic said they had to try to adjust the angle of the exhaust pipe to get around the convertible's stabilizing bars that keep the chassis from bending. It looks okay enough for me. I'm happy with the sound as it resembles the GT. The chrome tips really make the rear end more serious looking. Those stock tips were so sad. I would recommend the ATAK if you like the beefier sound.

    Worth every penny

    So I've had my Borla ATAK exhaust on for about 2 weeks now, and I love it more each day. It gives the perfect muscle car noise for a V6, but it isn't too much noise. It's loud when you want it to be, and quiet when you want it to be. It has no drone on the highway, which is super important. The install is very easy too. Hardest part of the install was jacking my car up on the ramps. Great purchase, and worth every penny!

    Worth the money.

    This exhaust took about a week or soo to arrive after I ordered. Took me about 4 hours to install it myself but that's only because this was my first time installing a full cat back exhaust. Nothingness I think it's worth the 1200$ price tag. In love with the sound. (No drone).

    Best upgrade so far!

    If you want your car to sound nasty then this is the exhaust you need. It's not real loud with the windows up so it doesn't overpower my radio. It sounds more like the V8 now. Of course I have a KandN CAI, BBK throttle body, Poweraid throttle body spacer and the Bama x4 tune as well.

    Great Exhaust!

    The exhaust is incredibly easy to install. Took me a little under 2 hours in my garage on jack stands. The quality of the material looks great compared to the stock exhaust. It's loud when you cold start the car and very loud when you really give it gas but quiet at cruising or highway speeds. Very nice deep rumble between gears or when downshifting. The exhaust gets even louder after a couple days of driving, and I have noticed no drone at all. I would highly recommend this product.

    very happy

    I got to say this is a great exhaust. The sound clips don't sound as good as it does in person you have to hear it in person. Makes my car sound great. Vry loud when you get up on it anything pass 3000rpms your going to hear it getting loud but if you keep your rpms under that you won't hear much so you can do your daily driving no problems at all. It doesn't have that drone that makes you go crazy. It sounds great every at high rpms. Took me about 3 hours to install just on 4 jack stands and hand tools with some helping hands to hold up the exhaust so i can bolt evetyhing in. I can feel a differents in power right off the back. Had a little problem trying to get the tips to be just like the other one but i got it to be very close doesnt bug me. Best mod i got so far.
