Justin: The C&L Muffler Deleting Axle-Back that we have here today is gonna be a very affordable way to really crank the volume on your 2011 through 2014 GT, while also delivering a very high-quality build at the same time. Now, this kit will pack a full stainless steel build throughout, including the mandrel bent 3-inch tubing and brightly polished 4-inch tips, all for right around that mid to high $200 price point. Install's gonna be a 100% bolt-on job here, gang, it's not gonna require any cutting, any modification. But since all of your work is done underneath the car, site's automatically gonna kick this one up to a soft two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and call it a couple of hours to complete from start to finish. But hang out for a bit, guys, we'll walk you through that job later in the video.But let's hit the most important thing with any exhaust review and that, of course, is sound. And to put it bluntly here, the muffler deleting axle-back from C&L is gonna sound very, very angry. Tons of volume, tons of backfires off the revs, and just a really gnarly sounding system for the price. And perhaps one of my favorite things about this system is that despite losing all of the muffler, you're still maintaining a nice deep thumping tone overall. So going to my patented wake the neighbor scale, I've got the C&L muffler deleting axle-back waking up a lot of neighbors here at a strong four out of five on my one to five or again, one to wake the neighbor scale. Now, keep in mind, this is still with those factory manifold or factory headers, along with your cats in place. Now, if you're in favor of ditching those guys down the road, well, prepare to peg that wake the neighbor scale dramatically.Now, for as much sound as this thing makes outside of the car, I will say you are gonna hear this thing inside the car as well. We did pick up a little bit of drone in the usual spots in the highway here, 2000 to 3000 RPM. Nothing outrageous. And honestly, guys, something tells me if you're shopping for something this loud, this aggressive, a little interior noise is not gonna bother you at the end of the day. So how does this system get its loud and super aggressive tone? Well, take a look, right? It's pretty obvious. You are deleting any type of muffler with a piece of straight 3-inch tubing. And that's gonna give you that rough around the edges sound we all heard at the very top of this video with our sound clips and sound that's always to turn heads here when in place.Construction-wise for this system, it's pretty simple, as you might imagine. You are getting some very good materials here for the price point, 409-grade stainless steel for the 3-inch mandrel-bent tubing, by the way, has all been polished to a brilliant shine. And then last but not least, you are getting 304-grade stainless for those 4-inch tips exiting in the factory location. But now let's shift gears and get into the installation as promised earlier. And again, this is a 100% bolt-on job, guys, no cutting, no modification needed. And to give you a better idea of just how things are gonna go down on your S197 at home, check out our detailed walkthrough and tool breakdown now.Man: Tools for this install: an exhaust hanger tool, an extension, 13-millimeter shallow socket, 13-millimeter deep socket, 14-millimeter, 15-millimeter ratchet, electric ratchet, and some PB B'laster. We're gonna start by grabbing our 13-millimeter socket and get our clamps unbolted at the axle-back. Grab your hanger tool, and we're gonna get the muffler unbolted from this exhaust isolator. Make sure you're supporting it so it does not just fall down on you. At this point, you can take your 13-millimeter shallow socket, and get the bolts located on the hanger unbolted so we can pull our axle-back off the Mustang.Grab your extension so we can get the bolt located at the back unbolted. Now grab your 14-millimeter and we'll get the center bolt undone Make sure you're supporting the muffler because after this comes out, your whole muffler will come down. Now repeat those steps on the other side.Now with your factory axle-back removed, we're gonna be retaining the exhaust hanger. So go ahead and grab your hanger tool. Don't be afraid to hit it with some PB B'laster or some kind of lubricant to get these hangers off. And we'll do the same with the other.Now that we have our factory exhaust brackets taken off our OEM exhausts, I just wanted to show the difference between the two. The bigger bracket is going to go on the driver-side axle-back with the smaller bracket going on the passenger side. Go ahead and grab your exhaust hanger brackets and get them placed on your new exhaust pipes. Do the same with the passenger side. Place your new axle pipes into the exhaust hangers located at the rear and we will get the exhaust hanger bracket bolted on.Go ahead and grab your 13-millimeter bolts that we removed earlier, and thread those in. Go ahead and grab your 13-millimeter socket and get those tightened down. Grab one of your rounded kit provided clamps and get that placed before the axle-back piping. Get your piping lined up and we will come back to tighten that down. Now with the flatter clamps, we're gonna go ahead and put that over the exhaust tip and place that on the axle-back piping. And now we can come back and tighten all our clamps. Grab your 15-millimeter and your impact and go ahead and get your clamp at the tip tightened down. For your clamp at the axle-back brake, it is going to be a 13, tighten that down. We'll go ahead and repeat that on the other side.With your clamps now secure, that's gonna wrap it up for this review and install of the C&L Muffler Delete Axle-Back Exhaust with Polish Tips, fitting the '11 to '14 GT.
