Hey everybody I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is going to be my review of the MBRP Axle-Back Exhaust System available for your 2005 to 2010 Mustang GT in your choice of either an aluminized steel construction or a full stainless build.The MBRP System here is going to be for any '05 to '10 owner out there who is looking to get some more volume out of his or her ride but without emptying your wallet in the process. Now in fact the aluminized steel version which I do have on the table here in front of me is going to be one of the most affordable axle backs for your three-valve here on the site priced in line with that and some of the pipe stuff but yet a far cry from some of the more premium options such as Corsa or LTH. Sticking with the MBRP aluminized steel version I have here again, guys, a great budget system. But MBRP does offer again this same exact kit but in a full stainless version. It's going to offer all those durability and appearance benefits you come to expect from a stainless build, and it's only going to be a few bucks more, very reasonable overall. Now both systems do utilize the same formula. You're going to get some rounded chambered mufflers here, 2.5 mandrel bend on the tubing, finally 3.5 inch slash cut tips as per the MBRP logo.Now despite the difference in materials between the aluminized steel and full stainless, you can expect roughly the same tone from both systems thanks largely in part to the fact that they utilize the same muffler. After hearing this system in person and reading some of the reviews, I can definitely agree that this thing's going to offer a nice aggressive tone, but it's going to be clean overall, not very raspy or anything like that, offer a great presence with zero drone whatsoever. For that reason alone, I'm going to give it a solid three out of five on our overall loudness meter with one being close to relatively stock and five just being crazy loud. Moving on to the installation. Now getting a new axle-back installed onto your three-valve, not a big deal whatsoever. Very easy job. So for that reason alone, we're going to give it a solid one out of three wrenches on our overall difficulty meter. Now figure about an hour or two before you're making some noise, of course you want to have your jack and jack stands ready or ramps or a lift if you're one of the lucky ones out there and figure an assortment of hand tools, sockets, things like that and you should be able to get this thing banged out, no problem.So if you're on a tight budget or maybe you're saving up for some other mods but rolling around in a stock or quiet GT is certainly not going to apply, then I think the MBRP system here is going to be a great option for your '05 to '10 Mustang GT, and you can grab your set right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

good looks, sound 8/10
134/5000 It has an ugly vibration at a low engine rhythm, and I thought the sound was louder at the start, I'm happy but I expected more.Helpful (0)

Wakes up your house, not your street.
I was not looking for the loudest exhaust as I did not wanna be "that guy" but I did want a good bark to go with my GT/CS for the classic muscle look and feel (sound is style!) The MBRP did it for me and at a decent price. Install couldnt be easier as long as you have some basic tools, but be warned, this will not "explode" with sound when you ignite the engine- instead, you get a low grumble and some great pops if you floor it. If youre looking for classic muscle without breaking eardrums or the bank, this will be the one for you. P.S. I now want to be "that guy"Helpful (1)

BEST AXLE BACK
i have a 2008 GT and i have longtube headers,off-road xpipe, and these axle backs and i love the sound of the car so much. it’s not loud when regular driving so you’re able to listen to the radio or have a convo in the car. BUT when you get on it that’s when the car really screams 10/10Helpful (0)

MBRP Axle back
Great product. Nice sound and no drone. You definitely know when you step on the gas. Took me 5 hours to install with out jack or stands. Hardest part was breaking the old muffler clamp bolts.Helpful (0)

My car has hot rod cams and a off road x pipe, I use to run flowmaster super 10’s and it’s mean and aggressive but super raspy. I finally switched to these and it gave me a nice smooth mellow tone that I can enjoy. On a side note, these are well built but the “bolt on” style sucks. The clamps included are too big and the hangers need modified. I took to my local shop and had it professionally welded and fitted and centered for $100. Well worth it.Helpful (1)

Waste of money and time
“We give this a 3/5 on the loud scale” sure it’s a 3, but on a scale from 1-20. The ONLY difference between these and stock is visual, with the tiniest bit of idle sound, step on it, and it sounds completely stock. Now i see why these were on sale, and install took 2 and a half hours, thanks to one of the brackets not being able to be tightened. I would send them back immediately if they weren’t SUCH a pain to install, and i had to grind a bracket off my stock muffler just to get the thing on. Poorly made. I’ve never been so dissatisfied with American Muscle. Idk what everyone is talking about giving these 5 stars and saying their car sounds great. DO NOT BE FOOLED. I didn’t even want a super loud car, i just wanted what i thought i was paying forHelpful (1)
Just purchased a 2006 GT convertible. I like the way the exhaust sounds (not stock)but at 1800/2000 rpms in 4th or 5th gear the drone inside the car is unacceptable. Will this MBRP solve that? If not which type will. Thank you.
This MBRP Installer Series Axle-Back Exhaust will give you a deep growl , no rasp. and also no drone.
Hey guys, I'm looking to make my 06 GT sound a bit louder than the stock exhausts. I'm a high school kid so a cheaper price does sound more appealing to me, but I still want my car to sound nice at the same time. I've been looking at the Flowmaster Outlaw Series Axle-Back Exhaust and really like the reviews and video on them, but the MBRP exhausts are clearly a bit cheaper. What is the biggest difference between the two? What would you recommend? Thanks!
Whats up Henry! So really the only difference in axle backs are the quality and loudness of sound. The flow master will be louder and is in fact one of our loudest systems compared to the MBRP. Now the quality of sound is relative and more or less appeals to people differently. the flowmaster generally is a little more raspy with it being a louder exhaust note, while the MBRP is not going to be as loud with a deeper sound and a little bit smoother of a tone.
What's the difference between the pro and installer series?
The installer Series is constructed of Aluminized Steel Tubing and the Pro Series is Stainless Steel Tubing.
do i need a tune with any of these axle back pipes
The MBRP Installer Series Axle-Back Exhaust will not require a tune after installation.
Will these Mufflers work on a V6 Mustang if you've installed the pypes true dual exhaust system?
Yes, that dual exhaust system will allow you to use any 05-10 GT axle-back exhaust.
The MBRP Installer Series Axle-Back Exhaust will still be fairly loud when paired with an off road X Pipe, though it will offer reduced exhaust volume compared to a muffler delete.
The MBRP exhaust will be a great addition to your set up and will help make the car a little deeper. This would be a great exhaust however we would recommend doing the stainless option as this will hold up much longer then the aluminized. https://www.americanmuscle.com/mbrp-axleback-0510gt.html
This MBRP Axle-Back Exhaust is specifically designed for the GT's only; This item, MPN# S7200AL, or UPC 882963117564, is not specified to fit according to MBRP.
The MBRP exhaust may have some drone, but it will be minimal.
Honestly if you're unsure about the installation, we recommend have a muffler shop do the install.
If you have an ATAK or S-type, this will be more quiet. If you have the Touring, this will be louder.
Because these are designed for an '05 GT, I would suggest that either a different hanger is used, or the larger openings are cut. This system is not designed for a V6, which is likely why you are seeing that touching.
