Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com, and this is my review and an install of the Magnaflow Competition Axle-Back Exhaust, fitting 2015 and up GT Mustangs. We're gonna cover a few things with this exhaust in this video. Mainly we're talking about the sound of the axle-back, the materials, and the install. The install for this is easy. It's a two out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, but only because you do need to cut in order to install an axle-back on an S550, but we'll talk about that more later. The Magnaflow Competition Axle-Back is going to be a good option for the S550 GT owners out there that are looking for a deep sound and a smooth exhaust tone. I wouldn't call this system quiet, but it's not loud either, so it's a perfect option for those of you out there that are looking for something in between. The sound that this axle-back offers is what I consider a low rumbling growl. It's not a loud and raspy system, but it does give a smooth sound. Overall, this is a deep sounding system that doesn't have a lot of raspiness and popping to it. It's got some volume to it, and keep in mind that this is just an axle-back, so just know that it can get even louder with a mid-pipe and headers. With that being said, I'm gonna give it a solid two or three out of five on the loudness scale. At the end of the day, though, no matter if you love this sound or hate it, it really all depends on what you're looking for and what you like, and luckily there are quite a few options out there. So the sound that this offers is courtesy of the full stainless steel system that's mandrel-bent. It's a two and a half inch system with four and a half inch polished stainless steel tips for out back. The axle-back is designed to be more free-flowing and reduces a little back pressure, and the mufflers are also straight through mufflers. And I always say this, but stainless steel is always a great option for the cars that see all different types of road conditions, because it offers great corrosion resistance. When we start to look at price, this axle-back is on the more expensive side of things. It's gonna cost between $750 and $800. So it's up there with the likes of Borla, but there's still the Ford Racing and Corsa offerings that are a bit more expensive. If this is out of your price range, there are a ton of exhaust options for the S550, so you can always check out some of those. You're gonna be looking at the typical cut and clamp design with the install for this axle-back since you do need to cut all S550 axle-backs. We're gonna call this a two out of three wrenches on the scale, but only because of the cutting that's involved. It's nothing difficult, but I just recommend some eye protection and a fresh blade to make the cutting easier. Overall, you're looking at about two hours to get this all done. A lift would certainly make things easier for you here, but the job can be done on jack stands as well if you don't have access to one. Cutting the factory axle-back isn't hard. Just be sure to measure twice and plan to mark where you'll be cutting so you don't make a mistake. The new axle-back will come with new clamps for you, so you don't have to worry about that. When you go to install your new setup, it'll probably be easiest to leave everything loose until you have it all lined up and then tighten it down. Overall, the Magnaflow Competition Axle-Back is a two and a half inch stainless steel axle-back that's a great option for those looking for a sound that's in the middle of the road when it comes to volume. It offers a smooth and deep sounding exhaust tone from straight-through mufflers, and it has four and a half inch tips for out back. You can check this axle-back out some more online for yourself, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

I have the Magnaflow street cat back installed on my GT right now, will the Competition series be able to bolt up to the X-pipe provided from the street catback?

EB2015

  • Yes, the magnaflow competition axleback exhaust will bolt right up to the mangaflow street system the car currently has.

Will the Magnaflow competition Axle-back exhaust linked with either the Flowmaster Scavenger X-pipe or Ford Racing X-pipe work, without having to cut the existing exhaust system at all?

mse

  • HI, This Magnaflow Competition Axle-Back Exhaust will bolt up to both the Flowmaster Scavenger X-pipe and the Ford Racing X-pipe, but both of those X-Pipes are cut and clamp and require cutting and removing the factory mid pipe resonator and clamps in place reusing the stock clamps.

    Magnaflow Competition rocks!

    I combined my Magnaflow Competition with the MRT h-pipe. This combo has given new life to my S550 with a deep throaty sound and improved acceleration felt in the seat of my pants. I couldn't be happier. The install went smooth with great fitment.
