    Review & Install Video

    The S-Type from Borla should appeal to the '11 to '14 V6 owners out there looking for a solid bump in volume over the factory system, but really don't want to be the loudest car on the block. Now, the S-Type will really hang onto that nice deep 3.7 tone, while adding a little bit of pop and backfire in between shifts and coming down off the revs, which some owners might like, others might not. Prospective buyers can look forward to premium build quality and materials here, including 304-grade stainless throughout for the high $700 price tag. Installation is going to get a very simple one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter from me when it does come time to break that down later in the video. Now, for as long as I can remember, Borla has been one of the favorites with Mustang owners in the aftermarket exhaust category for a number of different reasons. But it mainly just boils down to grabbing a high-quality, premium system, some unique tone, and a wide variety of options depending on your gen. For the S197 V6, you're looking at the Touring on the more mild side of things. The S-Type is going to land right in the middle, in regards to overall aggressiveness. Then, last but not least, you have the ATAK, which is definitely the company's loudest offering. But since this video is about the S-Type, after all, let's focus in on the sound you can expect when bolting this thing up. Honestly, guys, you heard the sound clips. I'll tell you, for being Borla's middle of the road offering, you are still getting plenty of volume from this thing. So going to my tried and true Wake the Neighbors scale, I have this system coming in at a very strong three out of five on my one to five, or one to Wake the Neighbors scale. Inside the car, on the other hand, things are relatively quiet and Borla admittedly is one of the best at reducing drone, and the same can be said here for the S-Type axle-back. But one of the things I enjoy the most about the S-Type system here from Borla is that it maintains that nice deep tone and the overall kind of character of the 3.7. Listen. I've heard a lot of crappy V6 engines in my day, and I'm happy to say the 3.7 is certainly not one of them. In fact, I really enjoy the tone from that particular powerplant. I think the S-Type just gives it a little bit more of a voice, without adding any rasp or any unwanted characteristics. Now, the cat-back version of this system is going to give it just a little bit more volume, but really not all that much, while just giving it a little bit more of a higher pitched tone overall. The axle-back here, on the other hand, is just going to maintain that deeper tone overall, while keeping the volume just a little bit more in check compared to the cat-back. Well, let's talk about how the S-Type gets its aggressive tone. Really, it's no secret. Any aftermarket exhaust system, it all starts with the muffler and as is the case here, you're getting Borla's S-Type or Stinger mufflers. They are straight-through by design. It does take a turn inside of the muffler itself, but it's very minor. No baffling or anything to get in the way, kind of keeping up that volume and keeping up that flow over the factory cans you will be replacing. After all, this is Borla. Right? So you're getting very high-quality stuff, 304-grade stainless steel throughout, guys, including a small amount of mandrel-bent tubing, the S-Type mufflers, and then finally the four and a half-inch polished tips embossed with that Borla logo. But for those who are familiar with Borla, you know that quality doesn't always come cheap. That certainly is the case here with the S-Type axle-back, as you will be dropping just south of $800 to get this thing on your V6. Interestingly enough though, guys, this is the most affordable system in Borla's lineup for your S197 V6. The ATAK we just talked about, which was a little bit louder than this system, is going to cost you just north of $800, and the Touring system which is the milder of the three options is going to be just north of the $900 mark. Well, let's shift gears and talk about the installation with the S-Type. As I pointed out at the very top of this video, axle-backs on the S197 are a complete walk in the park. So again, one out of three wrenches on the difficulty is what you can expect here. Anywhere from an hour or two from start to finish, depending on your skillset and your setup is what you can basically expect. The tool list for this install, very simple, again. Just a basic socket set is really all you need to get these guys in place. I always like to recommend a little spray lubricant, including PB Blast, WD-40, or whatever, just to help you with some rusty bolts and those rubber exhaust hangers. Last but not least, guys, obviously, this is done underneath the car. So just make sure you have a lift, jack and jack stands, or race ramps ready to go. Getting started, you'll need to remove those factory mufflers first. So go ahead and remove that factory clamp closest to the muffler, in addition to removing some of the bolts at the hanger, allowing you to drop the entire muffler assembly down in one piece. Once those stalkers are out of the way, transfer the hangers over to the new S-Type mufflers, and then lift the mufflers into place, securing them with a few bolts at the hanger to the chassis. With the mufflers loosely hanging in place, go ahead and reinstall that clamp nearest the muffler, and snug it up. But don't overtighten it right now, as you will need to make some small adjustments with those tips. Have a buddy position the tip exactly where you want it in the rear bumper. At this point, you can hammer home that rear clamp, tighten up the rest of your bolts, and your installation is complete. If you want a premium axle-back for that S197 V6 that will deliver just the right amount of volume with no drone, you'll have to check out the Borla S-Type axle-back, right here at americanmuscle.com.

    High Flow Exhaust. Untap hidden power from your V6 with significant improvements in sound and power with this precision engineered exhaust from Borla. Borla engineers have designed this axle-back to deliver a significant increase in airflow from the factory exhaust system for maximum power increases and a great, throaty muscle car tone.

    Aggressive Sound. The aggressive sound of the Borla Axle-Back comes from their industry-leading "S-Type" Stinger Mufflers. The Stinger Mufflers feature a straight-through baffled design to produce a deep, aggressive exhaust note that will get your V6 noticed at idle and clear the road ahead when unleashed at full throttle.

    Durable Construction. Borla's S-Type exhausts are made from aerospace grade T-304 stainless for unmatched durability and great looks. The S-Type Axle-Back (the "Stinger") is designed to be a direct bolt-on, and is made from free-flowing 2.5" mandrel-bent stainless steel for great performance. The Borla S-Type exhaust is complete with 4.5" polished tips that are stamped with the "Borla" name for a show-winning appearance.

    Application. The Borla Stinger S-Type Axle-Back is specifically designed to be a direct bolt on upgrade reusing factory hardware for the 2011-2013+ V6 Mustang.

    I'm undecided on the Borla Stinger S-Type axle-back exhaust versus the Borla Stinger S-Type Cat-Back exhaust. What's the benefit of the cat-back versus axle-back. Thank you, Joel

    • The biggest difference that companies advertise catbacks for is that they will add more power and axle backs don't add any power. But in reality from personal tests catback doesn't do anything on my V6. So go with the axle backs and save a little money. If you really want to get new over axle pipes get a shop to custom fabricate some. It'll be a lot cheaper.

    Convertible? First off, I'm new here. What a great site to buy upgrades for my new 'Stang. On my second Mustang. Never did any mods to my old 1994 V6. What a shame. This is such a great community of both end-customers and an outstanding aftermarket parts supplier. Glad to have found the site. Has anyone tried the S-Type on a Mustang Convertible V6? I'm definitely ok with the noise when I punch it. But, I'm curious if its too loud for an everyday commute and bluetooth usage. Perhaps another way to ask the question might this: Is the noise level too much with the windows down during a commute? Thanks guys/gals! David

    • I have a 2013 v6 with performance package. I have the Borla S-Type and they sound perfect. Not to quiet and not to loud and no popping. It was my first mod and sounds great! Also looks great with the huge cans in the back! I don't have a convertible, but its not loud while cruising and doesn't bother me when windows are down. It does scream when you punch it and has a louder hum when cruising on the freeway, but does not interfere with Sync.

    is this alot quieter than the Ataks? I have a 2013 V6 mustang with Borla headers, X-pipe and Borla Atak Mufflers. The problem now is its way to loud ( cops harasing me about it) so i need to quieten it down. Basiclly i wanna bring the sound level down but still want that borla sound. Will the s-type or Touring keep that aggressive tone but with less raw sound?

    • Yes on the S-Type, no on the touring. I purchased the s-type so I would not have that problem. Sounds great and screams when you step on it, but not to loud when cruising. The Ataks are really loud and when add the headers and x pipe probably makes it really loud.

    I have a 2010 v6 and I would like this borla s-type on it. Would I need a dual conversion and other adjustments to be able to use this? Or what other good axle-backs is similar to the borla s-type?

    • You would need to get a conversion to be able to run dual exhaust on your car. Below is a link a link to an X-pipe that will allow you to run any GT cat-back you would like on your car. https://www.americanmuscle.com/pypes-0509-v6-xpipe.html

    By chance is this exhaust set a direct bolt on replacement to my stock exhaust, also being that I have a complete stock system from headers down to the tail will only upgrading my exhaust be an issue?

    • The Borla Stinger S-Type Axle-Back Exhaust will be a direct bolt on to the factory exhaust.

      A different kind of sound

      I was choosing between the magnaflow race series and the borla s types for a while. I ended up choosing to go with the borla just because I didn’t want something crazy loud or too high of pitched in tone. Though borla is the more expensive option, it did give me the exact sound I wanted for my car. The exhaust is deep and it has a very smooth tone moving up the rpm band. The tips are the perfect size for the cutouts in the bumper and Perfect the look matched with my boss 302 diffuser. Would definitely recommend to those on the fence of ordering. It is pricey but you can’t replicate the sounds these mufflers make with any other brand exhaust. Borla is simply in a league of its own.

      Not as good as expected

      Install was fairly easy (2 hours total by myself), but had to loosen x-pipe clamps and remove hanger bracket to get old mufflers off. Sound is deep under 1500 rpm but it's too loud and highlights that it's a v6 over 2000 rpm. Worst part is that passenger side fits perfect but can't get driver side to line up right. Hangs too low and looks like chap being out of place. For the price you would think they would at least fit right.

      Borla S Types for my 2014 V6

      Sounds good. Idles quiet. Gets loud from 15-2500 RPM . 4.5” chrome tips fill the stock cutouts perfectly. Reusing the old straps was a little unclear since they’re tack welded to a strip of metal on the original mufflers. Also broke one of the rusty bolts and had to purchase new straps. Bought 2 for 15 each. OEM ones were 50 each. Yuck. Worth the hassle though. The bubbly downshifts and sound during acceleration both slow and fast is just worth it.

      She sounds different

      I love how my lady sounds, didn't want my exhaust to be quiet or too loud (yet), this was just right. First off, the exhaust looks great. When I start it up, I smile every time. It starts to open up at about 2-3k rpm. Had a local shop install it for me. When I got it back, I laughed like a little kid every time I revved her, I couldn't wait to get under a bridge and open the throttle to hear it reverberate. The drone sound is there but it's not too bad, but it can be a little hypnotizing. When you hit 70, the drone is barely noticeable, just turn up the volume and that will drown it out. Debating if I will get some LT Headers. Shipping was right on time, thanks AM.

      It really brings your v6 to life

      The quality of the product was outstanding! The hardest part of the whole process of replacing the axle-back was getting the old one off. The fitment of the S-Type was perfect, I had no problems getting it on. The one thing that I wish it came with was new clamps and bolts because mine were so rusted that I broke the old bolt in half. That didn't make getting the nut of any easier either. Although this exhaust is pricey I highly recommend this product to anyone really trying to make their v6 sound great with no drone and easily concealed at low RPM. This axle-back comes to life at 2500 and sound better and better the higher you climb.

      This is our 5th axle back on 2 different Mustangs. It's a very quality system and perfect fit. Not much sound at idle or under 2,000 rpm. Hoping for a deeper tone at lower rpm. A little too ricey under acceleration, but my kid likes it and it's his car.

      Sounds great. Looks great. No drone. Not too loud. Not too quiet. Pretty much perfect. There is a lot of nice popping when shifting, which I love. I watched many youtube videos while deciding which exhaust system to get. After getting it, I'm very pleased with it. I highly recommend it. I'm pretty sure this is the best exhaust system for a V6 Mustang. Don't expect it to magically sounds like a V8 (of course), but it does sound very nice for a V6.

      Doesn't pop as I saw it on their review online

      The best thing ever about this exhaust is that it has NO drone at all compared to the Roush that I had before. It gets loud as you step on it and quiet when you wanna just cruise around. The only thing I'm missing is the popping sound. I thought it pops as I saw it on their video on Youtube but it actually doesn't. Also the installation wasn't as easy as the Roush was. The Roush was pretty much straight forward but this one gets in the way of one tube running in the driver side, which makes it kinda hard to hook it up to its place. If you are looking for a nice exhaust sound and no drone at all, go with this one.

      Best exhaust for a V6

      I had originally bought the Roush axle backs and had them installed on my 2012 V6 about a year ago. While I did enjoy them, the drone and the screaming bansee distorted race car very loud tone got annoying after a while, not just to me but passengers. So I looked for an exhaust with a deeper muscle car sound as well as a solution to the drone. I discovered a couple of good review videos on youtube that did these axle backs justice. I purchased these and I am so glad I did. Definitely worth the extra price from the Roush.

      Perfect sound, worth every dollar.

      I've watched numerous exhaust compilations and found that the Borla S-Type seemed to be the more balanced option. Not too loud until you get up near 4K RPM, no rasp at high rpm and no drone on the highway. The pops and crackles when downshifting are very subtle and warm not loud and obnoxious. Overall very happy with the purchase and if I had the extra $200 I would've gotten the full cat-back but I'm impatient.

      Perfect - by the far the brand you want the most!

      First of all - I did wait for almost 3 months after having them installed to write this review. Especially when it comes to exhaust things you do love it in the beginning but after some while it does annoy you and you absolutely can't get used to it. Absolutely the opposite happened to me with these Borlas! Let's start from the beginning - shipment from AM was (as usual) perfect and the package was well packed. Everything came not only wrapped but very nice protected by some foam spacers - literally nothing could harm these nice pieces. Time to install - took me approx. 20min. each side (you don't even need to jack up the car) - but I guess that was only that short because I prepared the installed stock axle-backs with lots of WD40 well before. Alignment - MORE THAN PERFECT! I'd almost say they do fit well better than the stock ones! Well done Borla! Okay - now it comes to excitement and you'd like to hear them.... Woahow - don't get scared when you start your car for the first time. They are way louder than I expected they are. But that was just for the first start and for the first approx. 200 miles. They get less loud as soon as you have used them for a while. Still loud when the engine is cold and it runs in the "cold-mode" - but right after a minute or two it comes exactly to the tone you want it to have and why you did spend your good money for those. The sound is brilliant, nice and deep, rumbling more and more the way up to max. rpm. There is absolutely NO DRONE - I confirm - NO DRONE AT ALL!! That was one of the main reasons for me to buy these axle-backs and I am very very happy about that decision! The only contra I can tell (I am sure I am the only one who does not like it - regarding to the other reviews) it's the popping! Seems like everyone here likes it - I absolutely do not! As soon as the axle-backs reach a certain temperature and you shift gears this popping comes up - and always sounds like if there is some unburnt fuel in your exhaust system or as the whole air/fuel ratio is completely wrong - which for sure it is not - my engine runs perfectly and parameters are monitored constantly. Guess that's just some "feature" of the axle-backs geometry and a side effect wanted by the manufacturer?! I don't like it and it get's annyoing...but all the other positive facts will almost make me forget about that. Looks - we don't have to talk about the looks....they look perfect!! If you're looking for the best possible, deep V6 sound, for a no-drone system and you're willing to spend some good money -> get it!!
