    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    The Borla Touring axle-back would be an excellent choice for the S197 GT owners out there who want to go with a premium system in regards to overall construction and materials, and one that will deliver a little bit more volume than your stock system. Prospective buyers can look forward to premium 304-grade stainless steel throughout, all for the mid $700 price tag. The install is going to get a simple on out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter from me, with a little bit more detail to come later in the video. So Borla has always been a popular choice with Mustang owners out there, because obviously their quality is exceptional. But more importantly, their sound just kicks ass. With Borla, you actually have a couple of different levels of ass kicking. For instance, the Touring here will be the milder of the three options and will be for the Coyote owners out there who want just a little bit more volume when compared to your factory system. Now, Borla's S-Type, on the other hand, will be their middle of the road option, and will be for the owners who want a little bit more bark. Then, finally, there is the ATAK, which will always be one of the category-leading systems in regards to just overall volume. But as I just said and as you guys heard with our sound clips, the Touring is going to be pretty tame overall. So going to my Wake the Neighbors scale, I have the Touring coming in at a soft three out of five on my one to five, or one to Wake the Neighbors scale. Again, you are getting a little bit more volume. But it's certainly not going to be nearly as loud as Borla's other offerings, which are a little bit more aggressive. Inside the car, you can tell the exhaust certainly isn't stock. But it's really not much louder than your factory system, which in my opinion is a good thing. Listen. If you want a quiet system or a mild system on the outside, chances are you'd like to keep things relatively quiet inside the car as well, and the Touring certainly delivers there. The tone is deeper, without being loud or drone-y. Overall, I think inside the car the Borla sounds really good. Taking that a step further, personally, I think the Touring system has always been a great choice when looking to balance out or quiet down a set of long tube headers, for instance, or maybe an off-road X or H-pipe. Because if you think about it, if you start out with one of those super-aggressive systems like the ATAK, for instance, things are only going to get louder and crazier once you start adding long tubes or those off-road mid-pipes. Which again, some people might enjoy, others might not. But let's talk a little bit more about how the Touring here is going to deliver that mellow tone, and the star of course are the turbo-style Touring mufflers. Now, the mufflers by themselves do feature the patented straight-through design, but with a multicore design, which will free up the flow, but also help keep the volume and the drone levels to a minimum. But as is the case with a lot of the Borla stuff, the Touring mufflers, in addition to everything else, is made extremely well using premium materials. This does include the 304-grade stainless we already mentioned, and that is going to be the case everywhere with this system. Two and three-quarter-inch mandrel-bent tubing, the Touring mufflers themselves, all exiting out the rather large four and a half-inch tips here, which are embossed with that Borla logo. Now, these things look especially awesome in the rear bumper and will be one of the largest you can grab in the category. Now, for those who know the Borla name and the quality, you probably know you have to pay a little bit extra for the Borla stuff. That certainly is the case here, as you are going to be landing right in the mid $700 price point, making this one of the pricier axle-backs in the category. But as that old, cheesy saying goes, "You get what you pay for," and that certainly is the case here with the Borla stuff. But let's get into the install, and you'll be happy to know that the S197 axle-backs are going to be one of the easiest to tackle. So I'm sticking to one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here, maybe an hour or so depending on your expertise, your setup, and just how fast you like to work. Tool-wise, a basic socket set is going to be doing most of your work here. But I always recommend some spray lubricant, not only to help you with a rusty bolt or two, but also with those rubber exhaust hangers. Then, finally, guys, just a way to get the rear of the car up in the air slightly, whether it be a lift, jack or jack stands, and of course your race ramps. Getting started, you're going to need to remove those factory mufflers from your GT. So to do so, grab your socket set and remove the clamps closest to the muffler, along with a few bolts at the hanger. Now, this is going to allow you to drop that entire factory muffler down from the car. At this point, you can go ahead and transfer those hangers over to the new Borla mufflers, and then lift them and secure them into place using a few bolts into the hangers, and of course the clamps connecting the axle-back to your mid-pipe, making sure to position those tips exactly where you want them, before snugging everything up. Once everything is completely tight, your installation is complete. So if you are after just a little bit more bark for your S197 GT and you don't mind spending the dough on a premium system, you are really going to dig the Touring from Borla, and you can grab it right here at

    Mellow V8 Sound. The Borla Touring Axle-back will give you high performance without the roar. The high flow Touring Mufflers will give your Mustang a deep, throaty mellow sound that is quiet when compared to other Borla mufflers, but is louder than the factory exhaust making them perfect for the sleeper crowd.

    High Quality Construction. Constructed from 2.75" mandrel bent stainless steel tubing to improve exhaust flow the Borla axle-back exhaust system features two turbo style "Touring" mufflers with 4.5" polished stainless steel slanted tips for impressive good looks and sound.

    Application. This Borla Touring Axle-Back exhaust is designed to fit the 2013-2014 GT and 2013 BOSS 302 Mustangs with the 4 valve 5.0L Coyote engine.

    If these are incompatible with 11-12 mustangs, how did you guys install them on that blue '11 or '12 mustang in the video?


    • This Borla Touring Axle-Back Exhaust is compatible with 2013-2014 Mustangs only. The 2011 Project car went through several exhausts, finally landing on the Magnaflow Catback. At one time, a Borla Touring Axleback was used, as well as a Ford Racing Touring exhaust by Borla, however both of these are different part numbers which were designed for the 2011-2012 models. At this time, it appears these are no longer in production.

    What type of ss is used over the parts


    • The Borla Touring Axle-Back Exhaust is made of an inferior 400-series stainless steel. Borla uses this grade of steel on all of their exhausts.

      Outstanding value

      It is a perfect exhaust for my needs. I didn't want a loud muffler, just a strong rumble. It runs quietly until you hit the gas! Beautiful sound. Top materials and an easy install.

      Borla touring is perfect for a daily driver

      Borla touring mufflers sounds great when the engine starts up and at idle. They don't wake up my neighbors and the chrome tips fit the rear valence very well. They are plenty loud when I want to hear the engine and they are quiet when I need them to be. For my install, i also needed an angle grinder...the stock mufflers had sheet metal straps to the pipe clamps that has to be cut before i could reuse the factory pipe clamps for the Borla install. easy install.

      Great sound

      For me I didn't want something obnoxiously loud and went with these. Glad I did nice deep tone at cruise but really comes alive when you step on it! Of course you get Borla quality as well so you know it's going to last as well!

      Great sound for us 60 somethings!

      I love the sound, especially when accelerating. Just a bit louder than stock. Very quiet at steady speeds. I like the rumble when downshifting also. One thing I did not care for - the muffler end, the end that you see, with the nice tips is ugly. So, I painted it (not the tips) heat paint flat black and now the back of the Mustang looks great. You don't notice the ugly anymore! You really notice the polished tips though! Install took about 2 hours. I took my time and made sure everything aligned perfectly. The suggestion to remove the upstream pipe is a good one. I would also recommend it.

      Review from Borla Touring Axle-Back Exhaust - Black Tips (13-14 GT; 2013 BOSS 302)

      What a difference!!!!

      Great sound. I took off magna flow due to drone. Car has long tube headers and X-pipe. What a difference switching to these mufflers. I can roll out of neighbor hood without anyone getting upset now. Car sounds sweet and when you open the throttle you get that deep growl that sounds too sweet.

      Perfect fit

      I'm very satisfied with the Borla Touring Exhaust. The sound is a lot deeper and slightly louder than stock and, as advertized no drone. downshifts produce a very cool sound. Took me most of a day to install but I like to go slow. I found it easier to release the rear single hanger using exhaust hanger pliers then let the muffler hang down and unbolt the double front hangers from the frame. Since the new Borla muffler is shorter its real easy to put the double hanger on the muffler than bolt the hanger back to the frame.

      Perfect Rumble and Roar

      Exactly the sound I was looking for. Deep Low rumble at start up. Perfect Rumble on acceleration. I listened to many sound clips online. Heard different exhausts on the road. I always went back to the Borla Touring. Plenty of sound to get other driver's attention, without being obnoxious. Large exhaust tips, fill in the cutout in the rear of the car, perfectly.

      sounds great!

      Installation took a bit longer than I read, and I had a lift. The factory mufflers were more difficult to remove than installing the borla. The sound is exactly what I want, not too loud and much better than factory. It took a few adjustments to get them straight and centered at the back.

      Holy Cow!

      These mufflers are the Borla touring model for my wife's Mustang GT. They are perfect for that car and my wife. I have the Borla ATAK mufflers on my Shelby which my wife thinks are WAY over the top. NOT! They are smoking hot ... and the touring its great for her.

      Excellent aftermarket axleback

      The only thing that kept me from giving this muffler 5* is that at 2000 rpm (about 72mph) there is a uncomfortable moan that gets worse if you're going uphill at this rpm. Using the sport shift points solves this as 72mph = about 2300rpm but I still wish the moan wasn't right at the speed that I freeway cruise.

      The drone is gone

      I cannot say enough about how great these Borla exhaust components are. I had previously installed a pypes x bomb and there was a horrendous drone at 2000 RPM in every gear. 6th gear was unusable due to the cabin shaking drone unless I was going over 70. I removed the Pypes and put in the touring muffler s and the over the axle pipes. I hooked up to an existing upgraded Boss 302 Quad exhaust and like magic. The drone is gone. The sound is still great outside the car but the drone and the sensation of driving in a helicopter is gone. This is the route that I should have taken the first time but I have learned my lesson. This system would be a great buy at twice the price. The only thing that delayed my own install was getting the Pypes system off. Once that was off, this system went in with no trouble.

      no rasp just v-8 mellow tone

      install took about one hour(I have a lift) with very little adjustment to center tips. Fills rear notch very well. These Borlas have a real old school sound but, are quiet until you gas it. Then, the money you paid seems justified. No rasp or exotic note.

      Added the subdued roar I was looking for

      After listening to all of the utube videos on Mustang axle back exhaust systems, it was difficult to really tell the difference from one system to the other. But I know I wanted an exhaust note that; 1) Sounded classy 2) Let people know I had a 420HP V8 under the hood 3) Still allowed for me to have a simple conversation with the top down. 4) Easy to install Well, the Borla Touring Axle-Back system met all 4 criteria. Louder than stock, but very civilized. Nice rumble at idle. No mistaking the sound of a potent V8. But yet easy to live with in day to day driving. Installation was easy. But you do need car ramps to get under the vehicle. Overall, an awesome sounding system that Ford should have put on the vehicle in the first place.
