    Review & Installation Video

    Hey everyone. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my review of the Ford Racing by Borla Touring 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 milder option of the two, with the Ford Racing by Borla Sport being a little bit louder. While this is one of the milder options that's on the market for the 2015 and up, what I really like about this axle-back is the deepness of the tone. This axle-back doesn't get raspy in the higher RPMs, like some of the other options tend to, and that's a really good thing, in my opinion. But it really all depends on what you're looking for. This system gives more of that classic muscle car sound, and it will still no doubt turn heads. So on a scale of one to five, with five being your neighbors are constantly complaining every time you drive by, I would give the Ford Racing by Borla Touring a strong two in terms of overall loudness, and especially since, with the axle-back, you're keeping your factory resonator. This is definitely not the loudest system out there, but it is one of the best sounding in my opinion. It has a really nice pitch to it, making it sound more aggressive and powerful to me, and it's not as obnoxious from the inside of the car, either. If you're going for straight up volume, then American Muscle does have all other options on the site for you, such as the Borla ATAK. This system does feature two and a half inch stainless steel tubing, which is perfect for daily drivers and lightly modified street cars. Obviously, Ford Racing and Borla are legendary for their quality, and as such, they're at a premium with their price point. Now, they're not the highest priced 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. When it comes to 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 what it will be cutting. The axle-back should bolt up in an hour or two, tops. I really like the Ford Racing by Borla Touring axle-back, and while it has 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. Be sure to check out a system for your S550 right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

This Touring Axle-back exhaust system is manufactured especially for Ford Racing by Borla from high quality mandrel bent 2.5" stainless steel tubing and features Straight-Through touring mufflers with 4.0" chromed stainless tips embossed with the Ford Racing logo. The tips exit in the stock locations so no modifications are required to the rear bumper cover.

    I have 2 wuestions: I have a 2017 Mustang Gt Prmium Convertible. Will this increase cabin noise? Can you get black tips with this package?

    • At this time, the Ford Performance by Borla Touring Axle-Back Exhaust is not available with black tips. This will increase cabin noise due to these being much louder than the stock mufflers.

    is there any increase in horsepower with axel back or cat back systems?

    • The Ford Performance by Borla Touring Axle-Back Exhaust will not give a very big horsepower gain. It will enhance the sound of the car. A cat-back will slightly increase the power of the car since you will be changing out the mid-pipe.

    I just purchased a 2016 GT and I would like a little rumble but not a loud exhaust as I'm getting older and plan to travel with this car. Would this be very loud if I keep the rest of the system stock. Thanks for your input.

    • Due to the touring style mufflers that come with this Ford Performance by Borla Touring Axle-Back Exhaust system, it will definitely give your '16 GT a powerful exhaust tone, without being too much louder than the stock exhaust.

      PERFECT SOUND

      Should have bought this from the start. I had the roush axel back to go along with an h pipe. It was wake the dead loud and Wify hated it. Sucked to drive with windows down and it droned at 1k to 2k driving around down in my auto at 36-45 mph always had me at 1.2-2k and it sucked bad with drone. Now with this Ford by Borla Touring axle back and the H pipe it’s perfect. Their is a reason Ford uses Borla. Omg is great. Idle rumbles and it barks when you get on it. Best part ZERO DRONE at all and I can drive with windows down and talk with people again, but get on it and it’s not even close to stock or wake the dead loud but loud enough for me and the family. It’s not quiet don’t get me wrong it’s perfect loud.

      lucky dog

      I had purchased a pair from another company that were just too loud inside the car with any RPM change. The price is on the high side and if anything maybe could be louder on the inside but sound very good out of the car.

      Ford Performance Touring axle back exhaust

      Had shop weld install on my 2017 GT Premium fastback yesterday. Drove both in city and on highway. Car sounds much deeper at idle and while accelerating. No drone on highway at 70-75 mph. Really like the tone. Car sounds like it should have from factory.

      nice sound

      I had the touring mufflers put on by a exhaust company. It took about 90 minutes. They had trouble with the right side but managed to get the exhaust on. They said the right hanger didn't line up properly. As far as the sound I love them. I don't want our car to sound like a tractor and these mufflers fit the bill. I had Borla exhaust on a different car and loved them too. Our 2017 Mustang GT looks cool and sounds great. Thank you american muscle for everything!

      Just right

      Installed Ford Performance by Borla Touring Axel-Back on our 2015 GT convertible, 50th anniversary car. Easy install in my garage about in about an hour. The sound is just right for a summer-daily driver. No drone. It really sings when you wind it up. A little expensive, but I got just what I wanted.

      Nice exhaust

      Very impressed with the fit and finish! I wish it had a little more rumble at idle but very happy with the sound going through the gears and I like the fact that it’s not much loader than stock at 65 mph. No drone at all. I’m very happy with my choice buying this axle back exhaust.

      Ford Performance Touring Axle Back

      Well I originally had the Corsa Sport cat back system, the system was just to raspy and loud, so I purchased the Ford Performance Touring Axle Back and paired it with Corsa's 3 inch X Pipe and it tamed the system down, no more raspy and loud exhaust. It now has a tame start up, and awesome classic car rumble, but when you hit the gas, that Corsa X Pipe takes over, love it.

      Just loud enough

      I really like the Ford Performance Touring Axle Backs. I wanted a growl you don't get from the stock set up. I did a lot of research online and decided on these. They fit what I wanted perfectly. As a senior, who is almost 70, I am able to choose which neighbours I wake up. Not just everyone. Overall I am completely happy with the sound and the quality.

      Awesome Sound

      I've tried a few other exhaust systems on my 2015 Mustang GT but this Borla Ford Racing Touring exhaust has the best sound without being overpowering. I usually have satellite radio cranked up but for the last 2 weeks it's all about the exhaust notes. What can I say about American Muscle...they have great detailed videos, they had the product in stock and even though I live in Canada I still had my new Borla delivered in a few days. Thanks guys.

      Muffler Swap Dilemma

      Replacing the mufflers on a brand new Mustang seemed a bit foolish. The factory sound was okay but it just didn't match the looks of the car. For me, as a child of the '60s, I wanted that rumble I remembered and the Ford Performance by Borla exhaust was, for me, the perfect choice. A deep, classic note through all of the gears but not so loud as to upset the neighbors. Another plus is that there is no interior drone in fifth or sixth gear so I can still enloy my tunes. To tell the truth, I rarely have the windows up since the install. I was not equipped to do the install myself but my Ford dealer had it done in less than 1 1/2 hours and the fit was perfect. As to the finish, the more flared exhaust tips of these mufflers look more aggressive than the factory tips and have a bright chrome finish.For me, these Touring mufflers were the right choice.

      Just Right....

      I have a 50th Anniversary Convertible. I didn't want something obnoxiously loud with the top down, and the reviews pointed me to this exhaust. I didn't delete the resonator; figured I could later if I wanted. This exhaust does not make the car stupid loud. The rumble at idle is deeper, and when you stomp on it it growls. At normal speed, this is barely louder than factory. I'm happy with it- while I could've tolerated a bit more volume, it sounds good. I've also noticed a bit more pep, especially in sport mode. Pretty amazed at the difference made by this one simple change. I had it installed at my local dealer- thanks Champion Ford Reo. They knocked it out in under an hour and only charged me $65. Can't beat it.
