Justin: If you're looking for one of the loudest cat-backs in the category for your 2018 or newer GT for the least amount of money, the MBRP Race Cat-Back here in black might just be the option for you. Now, this particular system from MBRP will combine aluminized steel construction throughout, but the axle-back back portion here, as you guys can see, will be finished off in a high temp black coating to help prevent any corrosion while at the same time, adding a very aggressive look. Now price point for the ear-piercing system will hover just north of 700 bucks. And the simple bolt-on installation will get a soft two out of three wrenches here on the site, and we will have a detailed walkthrough to come later in the video. But let's get right into the sound you can expect when bolting up the race cat-back from MBRP, and listen, guys, if you're looking for loud and you wanna turn a lot of heads, you are certainly in the right place.One of the easiest scores I've ever given here on an AM exhaust video, strong five out of five on my one to five or one to wake the neighbor scale as your neighbors are sure to hate you and all of the cold starts with this system installed. That is, of course, unless your neighbors are cool. Now inside the car, MBRP is gonna be a tale of two different systems. And what I mean by that is down low in the RPM range, the race system takes on more of the deeper tone, which tends to make its way into the car while cruising, not as bad as some other systems, but it's certainly noticeable. However, put things to the wood and this system starts absolutely screaming, as you might imagine, and then you start hearing some of that telltale rasp of the coyote power plant and all of that volume.But let's talk about how this system gets its very loud and very unique tone, and it's gonna be the combination of two things, the Helmholtz style resonators here incorporated or working with the included H-pipe. And as you guys heard with the sound clips, listen, those resonators aren't doing much in the way of keeping things quiet. Instead, they're more here to just shape the sound of the system while fighting the drone that can sometimes be a little problematic with the more aggressive cat-backs. But aside from the unique design of the MBRP, this is also going to include 3-inch mandrel-bent tubing, essentially from tip to tip working with, again, the included H-pipe, which is something I always love to point out. Finally, guys, everything will exit out of the quad 4-inch tips here also done up in black, as you can see, and they are etched with that MBRP logo.Now, 99% of this system, again, is made using aluminized steel. The only exception to that being the tips themselves, which are made from 100% stainless. However, with this being the black series, the section of the cat-back that essentially is from the rear tires and back will be coated with that high temp black powder coat, as you guys can see, which is gonna be good for two big reasons. Not only will it help add a unique look to the system, but maybe more importantly, it's gonna add a layer of protection to the aluminized steel material, which can be a little bit more prone to surface corrosion over the years.Now because of that, MBRP is only throwing a three-year warranty on the materials here in addition to a one-year warranty on that black coating itself. Now, listen, if you love everything about the race system here but maybe would prefer a full stainless build along with that corresponding lifetime warranty, the perspective buyers should possibly look into the PRO Series also from MBRP, which will deliver that quality 304 grade stainless throughout.On the other hand, if you wanted to save even more dough and don't mind the aluminized steel construction, MBRP will also offer you the Installer Series, which essentially is as barebones as it gets, but will still deliver that same rocking tone you guys heard earlier. And also worth noting, both the PRO Series and Installer Series systems will be available here at AM. But now let's get into the installation as promised, and again, 100% bolt-on job. Meaning you guys should have a relatively easy day in the driveway or garage. But to give you a better idea of just how easy it will be, here's a detailed walkthrough along with a tool breakdown.Man: Now, the tools used for this installation are as follows: an impact gun or ratchet, a 15-millimeter socket, and a 13-millimeter socket. Now let's get started with the disassembly of our Mustang's cat-back. Now with the S550 body style, these are the easiest to uninstall. You just take off four bolts at the rear for the hangers, two more bolts right here at this cross member, then you go up and you loosen up the two clamps that come off your header extension pipes, and slide the entire exhaust out as one unit. The only thing we'll be saving from our factory exhaust are our rubber isolators. We're gonna begin with a 13-millimeter to take off our hangers and then a 15-millimeter to disconnect our clamp. Now with our 13-millimeter on our ratchet, we can go ahead and get these bolts out that hold our rear hangers.Same 13-millimeter, we're gonna go ahead and get these two mid hangers out of the way. Now with our 15-millimeter socket on our larger impact gun, we're gonna go ahead and disconnect these two clamps. And you don't need an impact gun. You can use a ratchet if that's all that you have. Now we got our friend, Ryan, here to give us a hand pulling down our exhaust. All we're gonna do is lift it off of our hangers and slide it all out as one piece. Now we're gonna begin with the installation. We're gonna begin with installing our H-pipe. Now you see it's H-pipe because it has this little pipe that adds them together instead of the two pipes crossing into each other. Now, this is just gonna slide into our factory clamps, and I'm gonna hold it in place using my pole jack. Till we get everything else put on, we're not gonna tighten up the clamps just yet.Next, we're gonna go ahead and get our extension pipes on the back of our H-pipe. Now we're gonna use a clamp that was supplied in our kit. Slide that over the end. And we're gonna use our factory hanger that came with our factory exhaust and just slide that over. Now just repeat that for the other side, and then we'll move on to the end. Now from this point, I like to go ahead and put these bolts back in to hold these hangers in place so they don't move around when we're trying to line everything up.Now next we're gonna go ahead and get our tailpipe section on. And well, I definitely can't call it a muffler because there's not much there to muffle. Now let's go ahead and get this up in place and then we can get our tips on. Now, remember to use your supplied clamp that comes with the kit and your factory hanger. Now just make sure you repeat that exact same step for the opposite side. After that, we're gonna go back, line everything up, and tighten it all down. Now, with our tailpipe sections in place, we can go ahead and get our hanger hardware back in place.Now with all the pipes in place, we can go ahead and get our nice, new black tips on. Now with everything in place, we can go ahead, line it all up, and tighten all the clamps down. Now, once you get everything tightened up from your tips all the way up to your header tailpipes, you are good to go. You can get this back down on the ground and enjoy your new exhaust.
