    are these quieter than the GT500 (m5230mgtca1)? I will be adding long tube headers and h-pipe so i need quietest possible muflers since the headers and h-pipe will add more volume. Also i have to replace my over the axle pipes with borla 60521, will these fit with the borla?

    • The Ford Performance Sport Axle-Back Exhaust would be louder than the GT500 axle back due to their straight through muffler design. We have not tested either of these with the Borla Over axle pipes.

    I am having difficulty deciding between the Ford Racing Sport Axle-Back and the Roush Axle-Back. The Ford Racing is considerably more expensive and I am wondering wether it is worth the additional cost. I like the sound of both when listening to audio clips. Thanks for your input. Tim

    • There aren't many differences between the Ford Performance Sport Axle-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT) and the Ford Performance Sport Axle-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT), item # 50148, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/ford-axleback-2011gt.html). The Sport Axle-Backs feature a T-304 Stainless Steel Tubing while the Roush Axle-Backs feature 409 Stainless Steel tubing. Not to mention the difference in sound. The Roush Axle-Backs are going to be a lot more raspy and the Sport Axle-Backs are going to be more throaty. It all comes down to which sound you like best. I suggest going on Youtube and listening to this Exhaust with other applications installed.

    I can only find the Sport and the GT500 axle backs by Ford Racing, but I am not interested in those. Do you sell the Ford Racing "Touring" axle back? Thank you.

    • We would not currently have the Ford Performance Touring Axle-Back Exhaust at this time.

    How do these compare sound wise to the gt500 acle back? Which is louder?

    • The Ford Performance Sport Axle-Back Exhaust is noise legal in 49 states while the Ford Performance GT500 Style Axle-Back Exhaust is noise legal in 50 states. Both options will give you a deep throaty tone.

    Every thing I read is Borla and FRPP for 2015 and newer. Are the 2013 FRPP sport axle backs made by Borla as well?

    • The 2013 sport axle-backs were Borla made based off of the specs that Ford Racing gave them.

      Way too quiet

      These mufflers are said to be equal to the bora s type with minor differences. Well, I have to say there is nothing the two have in common other than they are both made by borla. I've heard both setups in person and It's really an insult to even compare this axle back to the s type. They are so quiet I thought I had put the stockers back on. However, it's not all bad, the quality of this axle back is second to none and the tips are beautiful! It really is just a shame that the axle back doesn't sound how it looks.

      Axle Backs

      Great look, love the Ford Racing stamped in the tip. Like the rolled lip on the tip edge. I like the welds, clean no rust. Fitment was good although had to bend one of the arms a bit to fit. Sounds great on startup and acceleration, no drone at cruising speeds. Have had many people comment how they love the sound

      Solid Axle Backs For Just the right sound.

      I bought the Ford Performance Axle Backs to replace my Borla Ataks. Catless X-pipe and Cobra Jet setup made my exhaust a little too loud for my taste ( loud helicopter with some trumpet sound was not my thing). With the FRPP the exhaust system is now quieter and I have room to add some long tube headers and I expect the sound to be perfect with headers. Currently the sound is nice and opens up to a great race tone when you nail the accelerator. Note that until you put some miles on them they are very quiet. They did become louder for me after about a week of driving and it was a pleasant change. As always AM delivered super fast. For an exhaust that’s a little more aggressive I would look at the Borla S Type and louder than that Corsa. The Ataks are perfect for stock setups and CAI with Xpipes.

      Nice rumble

      I had the axleback Ford racing mufflers installed, I like the low rumble tone at idle and definitive roar under acceleration, I was reluctant to order these mufflers and considered Borla or Magnaflow, but I decided to keep the Ford brand in my upgrade and I am pleased with the result.

      My Little Pony

      I was looking for a nice but not annoying sounding exhaust and these Ford performance mufflers fit the bill. Way better than stock and completely 50 state street legal as well. My only complaint if I were to have one is that they were a little on the pricey side. But as a man once said "Cheap ain't good and good ain't cheap". Installation wasn't too bad and took me about 2 hours laying on my back in my garage. (A lift would have made it a lot faster). They do not come with new clamps so you will have to remove the old ones from that factory mufflers. Once installed the engine seems to run the same with no loss or noticeable gain in power but when you mash the throttle to the floor my little pony sounds amazing!!

      Ford Performance Sport Axle Back Exhaust

      This set up is awesome. Fits great and look great !! Install was pretty easy, but do not ignore other people's advise to put lube on the exhaust hangers !!! Mine were only two years old and were a bear to get separated. The mufflers sound great at idle and under acceleration. I would recommend these if you are not looking for very loud exhaust sound. They are mellow and remind me of the stock mufflers I had on my 67 GT Fastback.

      Overall, outstanding exhaust notes. Perfect idle, sounds even better when you step on it. Install took about 2 hours only because aligning the tips took roughly 45 minutes. I wanted the tips the be perfectly aligned, so I could've saved time if I wasn't so picky about the alignment.

      Installing ford racing sport axle back exhaust

      Install time approximately 90 min,, we find it easier to remove the 3 bolts on the back hanging bracket , In order to remove the stock mufflers. We than installed the hanging bracket on the new exhaust .thanput the3 bolts back in place. The sport axle back is not that loud it does give you a low throaty exhaust. I think it sounds best in 2nd or3rd gear. Love the way the exhaust tips look.

      1st mod I did to my new to me 2011 GT. Install was very simple and the fit finish is outstanding. I was torn between this and the GT-500 but the exhaust tips were well worth the premium price.

      Sounds really good. Wish it was louder.

      After doing a lot of research, I was really hoping these would be the perfect exhaust to satisfy my need for volume and tone in the high RPM range while being civilized in the low RPM range. The exhaust note sounds beautiful. It is really refined in my opinion. It wasn't as loud as I was hoping however. In the low RPM range it is quiet and subtle on the highway. In the high RPM range it is loud, but just not as loud as I wanted. I'm writing this review after having it installed for 6 months or so. I was told after a thousand miles or so the exhaust would break in and sound louder/better. It didn't get a whole lot louder but it was still certainly louder than stock. Is it worth the $600 ? Maybe. You're paying more for the refined sound than volume.

      Ford 'NOT' Racing

      Very tame volumn. Mildly better than the embarrassingly quiet stock mufflers. These should definitely NOT have the word 'Racing' associated with them. Very dissappointed.

      Perfect balance

      This axle back kit is the perfect balance between in cockpit noise level (pretty much none) and outside (out the tailpipe). Nice little tone at idle but pretty loud at wot, I've been told. Absolutely no drone. I suggest removing hanger brackets instead of trying to slide hangers out of rubber booties. Installation is even easier because mufflers are much shorter than stock so you have full vision of holes when reinstalling hanger brackets. The only downside is price, for $640 you should be getting a cat-back system (still a fox body guy).

      Lovin it

      I followed the same path it seems so many do listening to sound clips trying to decide . I just wanted something I could hear and enjoy , not so much turn heads . After much thought I just bought the Ford Racing Sport Axle Back with fingers crossed that they would not be to loud but just right . In two days a box arrived and installation commenced . I had read to just slid the stock unit back and drop the rubber hangers . Worked great and were in place in about a hour . Now came the moment of truth . Turned the key and it was music to my ears . Very nice rumble and not to loud . It is not noticed cruising until you step on it and then very a pleasant sound to let you know thing are happening . Was exactly what I wanted , very pleased with product and American Muscle service

      Exactly as Advertised

      In this day of internet purchases where items that are received seem to be quite different from what they were supposed to be. It is good to know that products from AM and Ford Racing are exactly what they are claimed to be. Outstanding fit, finish, quality and the sound is perfect. I have had LOUD cars in the past which I enjoyed but this time I wanted an authoritative exhaust note that was not a pain in the ear on road trips (70-75mph NO DRONE). The deep rumble these produce fit my requirements perfectly. Put your foot in it and the sound is fantastic. Not overly loud but considerably louder than stock. Down shifting as you come to a stop also produces an awesome rumble. Free shipping and the product shipped the same day it was ordered. VERY SATISFIED!!!
