Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, this is Stephanie from AmericanMuscle.com, and I'm going to be reviewing this Kooks axle-back exhaust for Fastback 2015 and '16 GTs. My first impression of this axle-back is that it's my style. It's a good mix between loud and deep, and what I really like is that the sound stays consistent throughout the RPMs. It doesn't get raspy or crackle on those higher RPMs. Even from inside the car, the system sounds good and there's no drone, which is perfect for a nice cruise or some ripping around town. Keep in mind that this is an axle-back, so you'll be keeping all of your cats and your stock resonator. Now, down the road, you can always change out the resonator for another mid-pipe option and enhance the sound of this axle-back even more, and that's one of the nice things about an axle-back. It offers room to grow and change through different mid-pipes, or off-road setups, or headers. I'm going to rate it as a three on the loudness scale, which is a pretty solid rating for just an axle-back. So we're looking at three-inch stainless steel tubing with four-inch polished slash-cut tips and a pair of Kooks high-flow racing mufflers coming in at just over the $600 mark. I'd say that this is right at the middle of the road with the price when we look at the exhaust market for the S550 GT and from a brand that's known for their exhaust products. I'd say that this is a good deal, here, if you're looking for a louder muscle car sound from an axle-back, and you even have the option of black or chrome tips. Install-wise, if you don't know by now, if you're installing an axle-back, you're going to be doing some cutting, and this axle-back is no different as a standard cut-and-clamp design that we're used to seeing with other axle-backs, and for that reason, I'm going to stick with what I've said in the past and call this a two out of three wrenches on the scale. Time-wise, it shouldn't really take too long to install, probably about an hour or so, but you do have to be careful when you're cutting, and remember that this system's not compatible with convertibles. I still just recommend a fresh Sawzall blade and eye protection, just to make sure everything goes smoothly. Wrapping this up, Kooks has provided a great-sounding, good quality axle-back with a fair price point for the new S550s. This thing sounds great, and if you're looking for a loud, deep and dirty exhaust tone, then this should be a good option for you. As always, feel free to check out the full lineup of axle-back options, and we'll see you here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Install took about an hour max. Recommend to tack at the axle end clamps so it won't pivot up and down. Has a great rumble, deep sound. They do rasp a little once you're on it but no crackle or pop. I ...

    Perfect!!

    Install took about an hour max. Recommend to tack at the axle end clamps so it won't pivot up and down. Has a great rumble, deep sound. They do rasp a little once you're on it but no crackle or pop. I have a H-Pipe so the sound is awesome. Close to a classic sound. Great exhaust.

    Review from Kooks Axle-Back Exhaust (15-17 GT Fastback)

    Deep

    First of all, very DEEP. I have mine with an h-pipe and omg very happy with my choice. Was looking for something deap but with a little bit of drone and these kooks really deliver. Im sure that just as an axel back they are great but an x-pipe or h-pipe paired with these would bring a smile no matter what.

    Review from Kooks Axle-Back Exhaust (15-17 GT Fastback)

    Utterly Thrilled!!!!!

    Short and sweet! The video on here does these no justice but was enough for me to buy them. Now that they are on, I get compliments on how good my car sounds. I raced a GTO the other night and when we got to the next traffic light that was his first comment. How good my car sounds. He had the best position to hear em if you know what I'm saying. He was behind me. Thoroughly pleased with my purchase, no regrets. I'm almost 40, I wasn't just looking for noise, I wanted more of a sound of a worked up car. I have a very aggressive sound, but we're not in kiddy town.

    Review from Kooks Axle-Back Exhaust (15-17 GT Fastback)

    Rolling thunder

    I had this exhaust fitted on it's own, as wanted a louder deeper muscle car tone. Boy does this exhaust deliver, sounds great right through the rev range, burbling at low revs while sounding like rolling thunder on WOT. One note of caution, it is louder than I was, expecting, but now have got used to it am v happy. Plus it seems to have got a bit smoother after 1,000 miles of running. I am based in the UK and the car truly sounds like nothing else you get on the roads here, love it!

    Unhappy

    These are a overpriced glasspack. Made my 5.0 sound like a 6 cylinder with a hole in the muffler. Bad part is I cannot even return them since they been installed.

    Review from Kooks Axle-Back Exhaust (15-17 GT Fastback)

    Kooks Axle Back

    These Kooks Axle Backs are awesome Love the complete difference in exhaust tone from stock just gives it the Muscle car sound I paired mine with the SR X-Pipe and pretty much made my own catback. Has somewhat of a drone but not a terrible one. Great product quality is superb.
