Review & Install Video
Hey everyone, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my review of the Ford Racing by Borla Sport Axle-Back Exhaust system, fitting your 2015 and up Fastback GT. This is one of the two offerings from Ford Racing by Borla for your S550 GT, and this is going to be the louder option of the two, with the Ford Racing by Borla Touring being a little bit more mild. If you're looking for a louder, throaty exhaust note, then I'd say that this is the ticket right here.
The straight-through sport mufflers are going to give you that sound you're looking for, without any type of interior groan. So on a scale of one to five, with five being your neighbors know every time you leave and come home, I'd give the Ford Racing by Borla Sport a three in terms of overall loudness, especially since with an axle-back, you are keeping your factory resonator. But even with that, this axle-back is really going to change the way your GT sounds, and it has a little bit of rasp in the higher RPMs. You get a nice throaty roll in the lower RPMs, and then it rolls right into a raspier sound, that luckily isn't obnoxious from inside the car either. This system does feature 2 1/2-inch stainless steel tubing, which is perfect for daily drivers or modded street cars.
When it comes time for the install, I'm going to call this a two out of three wrenches on the scale, solely due to the cutting that we all know is required with the install of a 2015 axle-back. But don't let this scare you away from this system, you just need to have a fresh Sawzall blade and some eye protection, and the patience to measure out where you'll be cutting. Otherwise, a big part of that easy two rating, is the ease of working on the S550s, as well as the high quality of this system. The quality of this system makes it assemble very nicely, and it provides a great fit. The 4-inch tips exit in the stock location, making modifications to the rear bumper cover unnecessary. The axle-back should bolt up in an hour or two tops.
Now obviously Ford Racing and Borla are legendary for their quality, so you can expect that as such, they're at a premium with the price point. Now, this isn't the highest price out there, but we all know that if you want a quality product, you have to pay for it, and with the sound of your Mustang being one of the most important aspects of the car, I tend to lean towards buying quality here, personally. Overall, the Ford Racing by Borla Sport Axle-Back has the ability to really wake up your S550 GT, with an aggressive tone that's only going to get louder if you decide to change out your mid-pipe somewhere down the line, and while it does have a higher price point, it's totally worth it, especially when you remember that you're getting the build and quality that comes along with names like Borla and Ford Racing.
