Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey everybody. I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my review of the Borla Stinger S-Type Catback exhaust system available for your Fastback 2015 and up Mustang GT, with your choice of either a black or polished tip. Now the Stinger or S-Type is one of a few different offerings from Borla available here at AM including the Ford Racing by Borla Sport, and touring catbacks, the Stinger S-Type here, and of course the louder ATAK system. One thing I really like about the S-Type here is that, yes it's going to give you the volume as we just heard with our sound clips, but it's going to have a slightly deeper tone compared to that ATAK system. The ATAK is going to be the loudest of the four. There's no getting around that, but it does have a little bit more of a higher pitch, or a little bit more of a rasp even though they both utilize the same X-pipe here. So if you're going for a little deeper tone, you might want to consider the S-Type. All that being said, again this thing is definitely going to deliver in the volume department. So for that reason it's an easy three out of five, maybe even a four out of five on our one to five, or one to wake the neighbors scale. Again if you're going for straight up volume, then you definitely want to consider the ATAK, or maybe even check out the Corsa Extreme. Going into the S-Type a little further guys, you are going to stumble across a few different options when ordering your system here at AM. Let's start with these tips. You can see we have the black option on the table with me here today, but you can also pick up the S-Type with a chrome or polish tip. In addition to that, the system is available in both a two and a half inch Mandrel bent system or a full three inch system. Now for most naturally aspirated daily drivers or street strip guys out there, the two and a half inch system is going to be just fine. However, once you start pushing big boost or big power, then you might want to consider picking up the full three inch system from Borla instead. In addition to that quality build, guys, you are getting a great fitting system, and that should definitely not go overlooked here at the Borla. This thing practically puts itself on the car. So for that we're going to give it an easy one out of three wrenches on our overall difficulty meter. Obviously all the work is under the car, so figure jacks, jack stands, or ramps if you got them, a lift if you're lucky, and then maybe an hour or two from start to finish before you're making noise with this thing. I do want to point out again this system I have with me here today is only going to fit your fastback GT, convertible guys will have to look for another system. In the end I really enjoy the S-Type from Borla. Sure it's a lot of dough, but it's going to give you a great sounding exhaust note that's well rounded without being overly raspy, and you're getting the quality that comes along with a name like Borla. So be sure to check out an S-Type for your S550 right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Aggressive Throaty Sound. Add an aggressive throaty exhaust note to your 5.0L coyote powered 2015-2017 GT Fastback Mustang with a Borla Cat-Back Exhaust System that features a pair of Stinger S-Type mufflers and 4" embossed black chrome exhaust tips. This catback not only sounds great, but also improves exhaust flow with the included X-Pipe for an increase in horsepower and torque.

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

High Quality Construction. Manufactured from ultra smooth mandrel bent 2.5" diameter stainless steel tubing to improve exhaust flow, this Borla catback exhaust system includes a X-Pipe and features two straight-through "Stinger" mufflers with 4" black chromed stainless steel tips that are embossed with the Borla logo for both aggressive sound and impressive looks.

Application. This Borla Stinger S-Type 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.

Technical Note. The included mufflers are 49 state drive-by noise legal, not intended for use in the state of California.

Any issues with fitment on the performance pack coupes? I've seen a few comment on other exhausts that fit both the convertibles and coupes that they come close, or rub on the sway bar. Anyone run across this issue with the Borla system?

KevinG

What is the difference between the Borla S-Type 2.5in and the 3in? Better flow?

PedroS

  • The larger diameter found on the 3 inch piping would provide a better flow rate as well as a throatier exhaust note.

Does installing the Borla s-type cat back exhaust alone increase HP or Torque anywhere through the power range or any decreases in low rpm torque versus stock

PaulC

  • Doing this system will certainly not lower the torque of the car. However doing a cat-back will not really add much horsepower either. This will maybe add a few more horses to your car!

Does the 3in system come with the step down to use with my factory headers or do I have to purchase? If I do have to purchase do you carry it?

RodneyL

Does this package require any cutting or is it just bolt on?

USAFboomer

  • This is a direct bolt on replacement from the factory exhaust.

My car is currently stock and I am going to get a Borla S-type Cat-Back Exhaust and a Air Intake. I have been told that if I get 3" pipe, I'll need to replace the headers. Is that correct?

Beez

  • If you get a 3 inch cat-back exhaust you would not need to replace the headers. As long as the exhaust has a step down, or an adapter to fit the factory headers, it will work well.

    Best Exhaust. Period...IMHO

    If you want an exhaust that will make you love driving more and more every time you get in your car, then this is the one for you! I researched reviews, videos and descriptions for months before deciding on this exhaust. I custom ordered my 17 GT in Ruby Red with the Black Accent Package and this was the perfect exhaust for me! I had it installed a week after owning the car and have not had a single regret since. I can cruise through a neighborhood at low rpms without disturbing a soul, the burble at idle is delicious, it gets perfectly loud when you punch it and the backfire is by far the best sound on Earth! This exhaust not only looks great, but it sounds truly amazing. And with minimal drone I can drive long hours with no issue, and even my wife falls right asleep without complaint. I promise you wont need another exhaust after this one. Its not depressingly quiet and its not obnoxiously loud (although it can be if you want it to haha). Maximize your ride and your life with this exhuast.

    Love the sound, had to kill some drone

    First off, super quality product. Well packaged, no damage during shipping. Installation was easy, I used a lift. Perfect fitment of tips in valance took some adjusting but was easy. Sound was as aggressive as I was looking for. I wasn't expecting drone but it was surely there between 1500 and 1850 rpm. Very pronounced in constantly varing 40 to 45 mph traffic. The base GT has zero undercoating or sound matting in the trunk area. Fords trunk liner foam is a joke. Pulled liner and installed Noico sound deadner (63 dollars) everywhere I could in trunk. Now its perfect, and less road noise as a bonus. Very pleased with Borla's product.

    Best Sounding exhaust for the S550

    Couldn't decide between the Borla S types or Corsa Sport. So happy I went with Borla! Great deep sound and it sounds good through high rpms. I thought the Corsa Sports were too raspy in my opinion. Borla came packaged well, very good quality and I got the black tips which look great on magnetic. Very impressed with this exhaust system. So far I think it is the best sounding exhaust system on the S550s. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. Borla FTW!

    Excellent Sound

    I had the Borla Stinger S for my 2006 GT back in the day, but it was just the axle back system. This time went with the full cat-back system for my 2017 GT, and the sound is amazing and I don't think any video can accurately depict the deep tone the system provides. It's surprisingly loud overall, but can be mild at idle. Once you get to 4K RPM and up it develops this awesome raspy quality and it makes me really enjoy driving this car. I love this exhaust, definitely worth the money, although my neighbors probably already hate me. Install was super easy with jack stands, a friend, and a few sockets. It took longer to take off the stock system than it did to put this one on.

    The Best exhaust out there.

    I used to have a Borla Stinger exhaust on my 2006 Mustang GT. I decided to keep the best exhaust on the market for my 2016. You may pay a little more than the others but it's all worth the the extra. TRUST ME!!!!!!!! Make sure you chose the right exhaust you are looking for. The S-TYPE WAS THE PERFECT ONE I WANTED.

    Louder than I thought...

    Sound of this exhaust is out of this world!! Has a fantastic race inspired note. My only concern is that the exhaust sound is much louder than anticipated. For those walking the line between the S-type and the Touring, if overall volume is a concern i'd lean towards the Touring.

    Roars!

    I've had my S type for about 2 weeks and I love it. The way it sounds when your on it is like no other. From a cold start the car roars. I drive my car every day to work and at red lights people are all ways telling me how good it sounds. It is expensive but you get what you pay for and with this system it's really worth it. Only this I don't like was the price other than that its awesome 5/5 for me.

    Exceeded my expectations

    I replaced Flowmaster 40's with this Borla S-Type catback. I had Midas install them for me - less than $100. This exhaust is aggressive and turns heads in traffic on acceleration. The note is exactly what I was hoping for, but overall this exhaust exceeded my expectations. ZERO drone inside the car at cruising speeds - even when accelerating, the driver doesn't get overwhelmed with roar. If you question the sound, just roll your windows down :-)

    You pay for what you get

    I purchased this cat back and was skeptical because of the price tag.. But you pay for what you get.. I installed and took it for a 5 hour cruise to San Antonio. I was going 85-90 the whole way with very little drone(2-4krpm with 3.55 gears).. This exhaust can be quiet when your off it but when you get on it, it means business. The cold starts are pretty loud.. I mean very loud but it does mellow out. Some times when I am not hard on the gas I feel like it can be too quiet but then step on it and its music to my ears and not obnoxious loud. When you put it in sport mode it sounds amazing when it down shifts!! Love this product and would recommend this to anyone! This exhaust holds the best note in my opinion throughout the whole rpm band..

    Awesome exhaust!

    The borla s-type sounds amazing!! And looks great! I took all the stock exhaust off before it came in so once I got the borla in it was about a 30 min job to put it on. Very happy with the figment and sounds amazing. I didn't want really loud exhaust but loud enough and a good nice sound to it! And this exhaust did just that! I would definitely recommend this product

    Louder than you think

    This kit certainly does make the car sound more masculine, but it is quite raspy in the 3-4k range when under moderate power and it does drone a bit in the 2-2.5k range on the highway. Listen very closely to videos that show this exhaust in use and you will hear the raspiness. This is very, very pronounced when you're driving around with the windows down. The drone part, though, I think is unavoidable. If you want your car to scare people and attract all law enforcement within a 2 mile radius, this is the exhaust setup for you. Except at full throttle at redline, these are louder than my buddy's 2012 GT with a muffler delete (but with resonators). I recommend looking at the Touring version if you don't want to look like a yobbo or if you do a lot of highway driving.
