Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my quick review of the MBRP Installer Series Axle-back Exhaust, available for your 2012 through 2014 V6 Mustang. So this is going to be a super affordable axle-back exhaust system for any SN97 V6 owner out there looking to add a little bit more volume and a little deeper tone compared to your factory exhaust. Now MBRP, traditionally, are going to come in on a lower side of the price range, and their Installer series is definitely designed for you owners out there on a tight budget but still looking to add a little bit more volume. Now, in fact, this is actually one of the most affordable axle-backs currently here on AM, with only the Pype Bomb coming in a little cheaper. Now, a big factor in keeping the price down with the Installer series is the selection of materials. Now, to keep things reasonable, MBRP utilizes heavy gauge aluminized steel in favor of the more expensive 304 or even the 409-grade stainless steel. No real performance drawbacks from this, but again, if you are looking for the long-term durability, this might be an issue with the aluminized steel, especially if your ride sees a lot of road salt during the winter months. Now because of this, MBRP is only going to offer you a three year warranty with the Installer series, as opposed to a full lifetime warranty with some of their stainless systems. So if long term durability is going to be a big concern for you, you might want to check out the Pro Series axle-back from MBRP. Essentially the same kit I have here, it's going to sound the same, but you are getting that full stainless steel construction. Going to cost you a little bit more, but again, you are getting the lifetime warranty. As you guys heard at the top of this video, this thing definitely delivers when it comes to sound, and in my opinion, delivers a very enjoyable tone. Not too crazy loud or anything, so for that reason, we'll call it a strong two out of five, maybe even a three out of five on my one to five or one to wake-the-neighbors scale. Now despite what V8 owners might say, I think the 3.7 is a good sounding motor, and this thing is going to deliver plenty of bang for your buck when it comes to sound and that should be one of your top deciding factors when choosing a system for your ride. Before we get into the install, let's quickly run down the materials. Again, for the most part, full aluminzied steel for the construction with the exception of the four inch tips, these guys are stainless and etched with the MBRP logo. But as for the rest of the system, again, aluminized steel, two and a half inch tubing, MBRP's high flow mufflers. The welds could be a little bit nicer but again, this is a value system. As for the install, well, it really couldn't be any easier here guys. We'll call it one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe an hour or two in the garage or driveway before you're making some noise. Full bolt-on install, no cutting or modifying needing. Maybe a socket set as for the tools, and maybe you want to get the rear of the car in the air slightly just to make the install a little easier. Wrapping up, the Installer series from MBRP, in my opinion guys, one of the best value axle-backs available here at AM. If you don't mind that aluminized steel construction, you're going to be getting a great sounding kit for around the $300 mark. So be sure to learn more about MBRP for your ride here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Do these drone real bad? I am looking for something to replace the competition style mufflers that came on my Mustang. I also want something quieter than what I have. I currently have a terrible drone starting at 1800 rpm. It also gets way too loud for little one who rides with me all the time.

DavidC

  • The MBRP Installer Series Axle-Back Exhaust is designed to reduce drone as much as possible. These will be one of our most drone free exhausts.

I've been looking at this exhaust as well as the flow master force ll but I don't know which one to purchase. I've listened to both clips but they sound fairly similar. Is there really a big difference in the sound? Or is the price difference mainly because the flowmaster's are stainless steel and these are aluminum? I have a v6 2014 by the way.

ErikC

With this axle back system, being just a little more aggressive than stock, is there even a need for an air system?

I have a 2011 v6 mustang that I have recently installed BBK long tube headers, BBK catted x-pipe to go along with roush axel backs, BBK 73mm throttle body and typhoon CAI with a bama tune. The only concern I have is it being way too raspy and loud. The car sounded great with the CAI, axel backs, throttle body and tune but once I added the long tube headers and catted x-pipe it got really raspy and loud. What should I do, should I put resonators on the xpipe or buy new axel backs? I hate the raspy sound and people have been saying it doesn't sound good. Hopefully someone can answer my question.

Vinny

  • The raspy sound is from the combination of the X-Pipe and the Roush Axle-Backs. X-Pipe's give the car a more raspy tone, where as an H-Pipe will give the car a move muscle car sound. A catted H-Pipe will definitely get rid of the raspy tone and give your car more of an aggressive rumble. Though, if you'd like to just change the Axle-Backs, the MBRP Installer Series Axle-Back Exhaust - Aluminized (11-14 V6) is a great idea. This exhaust is a lot more mellow than the Roush Axle-Backs. This will definitely help with the raspy tone.

    Nice sound, car breathes better

    When I received the MBRP exhaust I immediately painted the mufflers with a high heat black paint. The only problem I experienced with the installation was the removal of the stock mufflers. When the stock mufflers were removed the MBRP mufflers went on very easily. This exhaust has a very nice mellow sound and is not obnoxiously loud. You only really hear it when you are accelerating but when you reach cruising speed it goes away with no noticeable drone. When you put your foot into the gas the car comes alive. I have this along with an AirRaid intake. These two mods really made my V6 come alive.

    Why did I wait?

    These axle backs really make for a deeper tone on my V6; sounds like a V8 to me! The kids think it sounds awesome. Took these to a friend who operates a small exhaust business out of his home and had them installed in one hour. it did take some wrestling to get the factory exhaust off of the vehicle so doing this without a lift would be a bit more challenging. I live in Colorado so the aluminized versions should not have any problems with our winters. Plus saved some on the budget! If you're on a budget and want a deep, classy sound to your V6, look no further!

I was looking for an axle back that sounds better, without being load and obnoxious, and most importantly without drone at highway speed. It fits the bill exactly.... Sounds great at start-up, and when on the gas, yet mellows out and is quiet while cruising, and best yet, NO drone.

    Best V6 mufflers you can get!

    Everyone (With a V6 Mustang anyway) spends hour upon hour trying to find the perfect mufflers that sound as close to a V8 as possible and not like a Honda with a staight pipe. Well look no further, these mufflers will give you the deep tone you are looking for but not that ricer scream and to top it all off you will still be able to hear your radio and the carry on a conversation with people in the car. These produce no annoying drone and are a pleasure to hear on long trips.

    These sounds great!! It is a low deep rumble and not too loud. It is not as loud as some I've seen, which is what I wanted because I have a convertible and I have kids that I drive around sometimes and I don't want it to be obnoxiously loud. This MBRP exhaust is a great mix.

    Great Value

    I looked through the large array of choices offered for the v6. I wanted something sportier than stock but that I could still live with as a daily driver. I think MBRP is the perfect combination. They went on easy, look amazing and sound good. Unlike others who feel it sounds like a v8... It doesn't. But it still sounds really good. I definitely recommend. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I'm saving that for one that does make the v6 sound like a v8!

    MBRP Axel Backs

    These sound great, and the tips look good too! Nice deep tone, no drone or rice you sound at all. At low speeds it sounds very much like a stock v8. I had previously tried the Roush and although it sounded good ideling, it sounded like I just removed the mufflers, no tone whatsoever. However, for $329 these make the exhaust on the v6 noticable, and even rumble at stops.

    good sound, great price!

    I'd spent a couple months listening to different sound clips and I kept coming back to this one. My mustang is a convertible so mine's a little louder inside than a coupe. Since I'm in my late 40's and I'm not in the shape I once was, I opted to have a local shop do the install, which took 45-60 minutes. I'm impressed with the sound and the car gets a lot more looks now. Thanks MBRP and American Muscle!

    Your really going to like this exhaust

    I was after a slightly more aggressive sound from my V6 convertible- after all, it's a Mustang not a Camry! I watched hours of YouTube sound clips and decided to buy this axle back system. The factory cat- back pipes are quite good! Install was a piece of cake- maybe 40min. Hardest part is knocking the clamps loose as they are spot welded to the factory mufflers. The sound is PERFECT. $300 or $1000 I can't imagine a better sounding system. Really deep. Clips don't do it justice. While cruising 70-80mph it's quiet. If your struggling to decide don't hesitate to pick these mufflers up. I'm happy I did.

    Excellence!

    I installed these in less than 2 hours by myself. Jacked the rear up with a floor Jack and set the axle on stands. Lubed all the hanger rubber with silicone spray, and looses the muffler clamps. Pushed muffler up and forward to release rear support. Then lowered the aft part of the muffler to access (3)13 mm bolts supporting forward mounting brackets on the driver side and 2 bolts on the passenger side. Mufflers came right off even after 45K miles. Had to grind off some small tabs that were welded to the muffler clamps, but very simple with a rotary grinder. Installation in reverse. Again, very simple. I then painted the rear of the cans with flat black stove paint. The tips went on simply and I tweaked them to make sure they were even and looked perfect. These pipes sound sweet and deep without being annoying. Very pleased interior drone is minimal. Glad I didn't get the stainless version as they are virtually invisible when mounted.

    Perfect fit. Simple install. Great sound!

    I installed these Aluminized steel MBRP mufflers in less than two hours one morning in my garage. I jacked up the rear axle and put it on jack stands. I loosened both retaining clamps with a 14mm socket. I then pushed both OEM mufflers forward to release the rear support. There is a lot of flex in this exhaust, so this is easy. It helps to lubricate the supports with a little silicone before trying to extract them. Now, tilting the rear of the muffler down, I used a 13 mm socket to remove the brackets that mount the front supports. 3 bolts on the drivers side and 2 on the passenger side. Once removed, the entire muffler with the support still connected drops right out. Transfer the supports to the new MBRP muffler and reinstall in the reverse order. Lots of room to work, no surprises. One thing I did do was to grind off the welded tab that attaches the muffler clamp to the old muffler. Made for a nice clean install. I then took some flat black stove paint and sprayed the aft ends of the new mufflers. I then installed the awesome looking tips and adjusted them just so. Perfect. Sounds great! Not too loud but powerful. No drone, but a nice audible rumble inside particularly between 70-75 mph in high gear. Completely satisfied! If you are worried about not ordering a Stainless Steel version, forget about it. These don't show and they are built at least as well as the factory originals. I'm guessing these are at least 10-15 pounds lighter than the originals as well. I live in Texas, so road salt isn't an issue. That would be my only reason to get the SS versions.

    MBRP AXLEBACK

    EASY INSTALL, MINOR ISSUE WITH VERY SMALL EXHAUST LEAK AT CLAMP ON PASSENGER SIDE, WILL HAVE TO VISIT MUFFLER SHOP FOR A FIX. I BLACKED OUT THE BACK END OF THE MUFFLERS WITH VHT PAINT. DEFINITELY A NICE, MELLOW SOUNDING EXHAUST WITH NO DRONE AT CRUISING SPEED. I WOULD PREFER A LITTLE MORE NOISE PERSONALLY, BUT THIS IS THE MOST REASONABLY PRICED EXHAUST OUT THERE, AND ITS MADE IN NORTH AMERICA ! AND THERE IS NO WAY I'M PAYING $500-$700 FOR A SIMPLE PAIR OF MUFFLERS MADE ON ANOTHER CONTINENT, UNLESS THEY CAN MAKE A V-6 PRODUCE A V-8 SOUND, NOBODY MAKES A PRODUCT THAT WILL ACCOMPLISH THAT.

    MBRP Installer Series Axleback Exhaust

    I did plenty of research on all the performance exhausts that were available to me, I was looking for one that would not drive me nuts on a long trip with an obnoxious drone, after listening to the various videos and reading their reviews I decided upon the MBRP exhaust. the install was as easy as described in the instructions (no cutting) and the sound is exactly what I was looking for, I recommend this system to anyone looking for a mellow tone without the annoying drone.

    Sound Mean

    I will start by saying that in a convertible they are pretty loud since there is no roof to block the sound. The good thing is that the sound is really like a low growl which is present even if you are only slightly touching the gas pedal. To the mere normal's (90 of everyone) my car sounds like a V8 which is not bad. The sound when slowly accelerating could be confused with a V8, maybe, but when you mash the throttle its throaty in a good kind of V6 sound way. My mileage has greatly suffered because I can not keep my foot of the throttle.

    Awesome Exhaust

    The exhaust took less than a hour to install, could not be easier. Some reviewers reported you need two people to install, but I did fine alone. I used a floor jack to raise the X pipe so that the axle backs would clear it upon removal. The only issue was that the tips were 3 inch diameter and the diameter of outlet of the mufflers is 2 1/2 inches. I had a muffler shop weld on 3 inch adapters, and the tips look wicked coming out the back of the car. The sound is awesome, I love it.
