    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, what's going on, guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the MBRP Race Series Cat-Back Exhaust, fitting all 2011 to 2014 Mustang GTs. Now, in addition to that sound clip you just heard, I'll be going over the sound expectations from the MBRP Race Series Cat-Back which, I'll let you know, will get a solid four out of five on our loudness meter. Then I'll go into the materials and construction. I'll even walk you through the installation which, I'll tell you again upfront, will get a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, something any novice can take care of with the right hand tools. So let's jump right into it. The MBRP Race Series Cat-Back Exhaust I have with me today will be for all 2011 to 2014 Mustang GT owners out there looking to replace their stock, boring exhaust with something that will literally wake up the entire Coyote exhaust to give it a loud, very aggressive muscle car growl that will literally wake the neighbors. Now, with the sound clips you just heard, this MBRP Race Series Cat-Back will definitely, definitely be an upgrade over your factory exhaust. Now, I hate to say it, but those factory pipes can be kind of a disappointment for the Coyote engine there, which is a very respectable horsepower-filled motor, and you might wanna wake that thing up. With the Race Series exhaust, you are getting just that with a race-inspired sound, giving you a loud, aggressive muscle car growl that, like I said before, can wake the neighbors if given the right modifications. Now, with that said, this one is gonna get the four out of five on our loudness meter simply because it is louder than a lot of options on the site here, but not the absolute tippy-top loudest. This one does give you a very head-turning, noticeable sound here that you definitely expect from that Coyote S197. Now, with this option in mind, MBRP does offer the Street Series in addition to that Race Series exhaust that I have with me today. Now, the Street Series will give you a deep muscle car growl without being too overly obnoxious and too raspy. The Race Series, though, with that race-inspired sound, will be a bit raspier, a bit louder and, like I said a million times - I hate to say it again - will probably wake those neighbors, whereas a Street Series probably won't. So it'll definitely depend on your personal preference, how loud you wanna go, how much you wanna spend. And in addition to that, there's also the aluminized version and the stainless steel. Stainless steel is what I have with me today. Now, as far as the difference between the aluminized and stainless steel version that I have with me today, the aluminized might not be as pretty-looking, it might not be as polished, and it also might not even last quite as long as the stainless steel. But the stainless steel here, obviously, is the better-quality material overall for a longer-lasting durability and does have that polished, attractive shine, but all-in-all you won't be able to see it anyway. It'll be right under the car. But either way, it does come down to how much you wanna spend with that one. Now, you might be asking, "How does this exact cat-back give it that Race Series-inspired sound with the loud, aggressive note?" Well, it's all gonna be thanks to the materials and construction here. We do have high-flow mufflers that will be replacing your completely restrictive factory mufflers to really open up and give it that loud, aggressive Race Series feature. Now, in addition to that, you get 3-inch stainless steel tubing here for durability, corrosion resistance, all of that good stuff you'd expect from a very high-quality exhaust system. Now, from the 3-inch tubing all the way at the back end going into your mid-pipe, it actually steps down to a 2.7-inch tubing to fit perfectly into that factory mid-pipe for a direct bolt-on installation. Very simple and a huge bonus for the install, which I'll touch on in just a bit. Now, on the complete opposite end here - we have it hiding back here - is the 4-inch, massive stainless steel polished tip that'll be coming out of the rear end of your 5.0 Coyote, looks absolutely attractive with the rear diffuser here, and will fit perfectly. Now, with that said, this whole system is gonna be pretty reasonably priced for something that is very high-quality, but will be at the top end of the market here compared to other options, and I'll touch on that in just a second. Now, with all those materials and the construction in mind here, it's all gonna wrap together into the price tag. And like I said, that price isn't gonna be the most expensive, but it will be up there on the higher end of the market compared to some of the other options. For this kit itself with the high-quality stainless steel, the high, free-flowing mufflers and, of course, the huge 4-inch stainless steel tips with the polished finish, expect to be spending about $550 here. Again, not the most expensive, but it will be at the top end here. A lot of bang for your buck with this kit here with a very loud, very aggressive race-inspired design. Moving on to the installation portion of the video, like I said in the very beginning, this one is gonna be simple enough for any novice to take care with very light mechanical skills required, and a ratchet and a simple socket set will do the trick. Now, with that said, all you'll have to do is unbolt and unclamp your factory cat-back system from your mid-pipe all the way back to your tailpipe. Now, with that said, when you unclamp it, pull them off the hangers and set them aside. All new hardware will be included in the kit for you, and you'll just have to reinstall the Race Series from MBRP in reverse order and, of course, given that 2.75 drop-down, will bolt directly up to your factory mid-pipe with ease. Again, I'd say about an hour's worth of time, maybe two, in the driveway at home. It will be getting one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Well, guys, just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2011 to 2014 Mustang GT and you're looking for a way to replace your restrictive, factory cat-back exhaust with something that will completely wake up your Coyote S197 and give it a loud, aggressive race design, you might wanna check out the MBRP Race Series Cat-Back Exhaust which, of course, is available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Hello fello Stang owners, I currently only have the Roush Axle backs on my exhaust, everything else is stock. Will I be able to keep the Roush axle backs on this setup if I didn't like the muffler sound from this system?

    MrXReaper

    • The mufflers from this exhaust kit are able to be taken off, but the over axle pipes may not be a direct fit with the Roush Axle-Backs. If you look at the angle each piping is bent at, they are slightly different. You may need to do some modifications in order to have proper fitment.

    Bolting up with a BBK X pipe. Hey Mustang friends, I'm just wondering if this catback system will fit with the mid BBK x pipe? I've recently installed the x pipe to my flowmaster axle backs, but still have the stock small mufflers after the x pipe on it. Thank you!

    Bstang2000GT

    • Should not be a problem due to the X pipe fitting the factory catback. You can see in the picture the connection to the x pipe is smaller in diameter to fit inside.

    Jsak3824

    • Hello everyone! This question gets asked a lot, the official answer is if you are buying a cat back or even just a axle back you do not need a tune revision for your car.

      Definite improvement

      My car is about as race as it gets , I had a set of dumps with summit mufflers before , upon attempting to install this exhaust I realized with my additional bracing on the diff that this system would not work for me . I ended up making a dump setup out of it and wow what a difference , I was looking for something a bit quieter and with sound like a full exhaust and I couldn’t be happier

      Great Exhaust note and value for your money

      I've waited about 2 weeks after installing this exhaust before writing this review. This was done on a lift and was pretty straight forward. The reason I gave it 4 stars on the fit and finish is the tips should come out a little further maybe 2 inches short. The rest of the exhaust is very well made and fits like a glove. The sound is a deep old school rumble. Plenty of volume but not way over the top, Their is a drone from 1800 to 2200 peaking at 2k. when on the throttle up hill is the worst. If it gets annoying I just up shift to 5th. I love this exhaust despite the drone... Its not raspy or poppy. Its an old school deep rumble. WOT its sounds like a race car. Cold starts are simply awesome. Why buy an exhaust you cant hear? this exhaust sounds awesome.... for me the benefits outweighs the drone. I combined this with a CandL street CAI and you can feel a difference in Throttle response. HP and torque gains above 3k. Definitely noticeable even without a tune. I would recommend this exhaust. For the money its a no brainer. And I think it sounds better than almost all those way more pricey exhausts. Plan on dealing with the drone with gears and an H pipe later on right now though I am very happy with MBRP Race Cat Back.

      Deep Muscle Car Sound

      Before upgrading to the MBRP Cat-Back i had stock overaxle pipes and the GT500 exhaust. After switching even my wife noticed that it is deeper sounding while driving thus appearing quieter however, there is a lot of drone if you try to stay too low in the rpms while cruising. Overall i love this exhaust and its the exact sound i wanted for my mustang!

      Very pleased and would recommend.

      I ordered and installed the MBRP Race cat-back on my 2014 GT. Installation took me about 45 minutes total. Very easy straight forward direct bolt on. No problems. Looks really good, but the sound is awesome. The sound is just what I was wanting and hoping it would be. Very deep and mellow, but has really good volume when you get on it. The sound will turn heads! Very nice and 3" plumbing as well....most cat backs are not.

      Loud pipes save lives

      It was easy installing this axle back exhaust system in the garage on Jack stands in -°4. The only problem was figuring out the driver side. I wasn't paying attention to where I was feeding the exhaust over the axle and pan hand bar. You just have to pay attention to what your doing. I like the sound so far. Time of install depends on you. Me 1hour

      If you're looking for loud, don't bother.

      This exhaust does not sound loud at all. I'm running an off-road H-pipe with the stock resonated mid pipe, after installing this exhaust, there was no increase in sound. As a matter of fact, my sound was more tame, even the the shop commented that it wasn't as loud as my stock exhaust, but it did sound deeper. The only difference was that you get a deeper sound. I figured since this was the "race" version that it would sound louder, but it honestly it's more like 2 or 3 out of 5 on the loudness meter. I'll more than likely do a muffler delete.

      Amazing sound, great quality

      This exhaust sounds amazing! It has a great low rumble at lower RPMs, making it sound aggressive and menacing. At higher RPMs, it gets this intense, raspy growl that gives me goosebumps. Install was a breeze, all clamp-on and everything bolts/slides right into place. Took about 3 hours. Stainless steel construction is also very nice, as it ensures quality over time. Overall, couldn't be happier with my purchase.

      Need Lift To Install!!

      Easy install was indeed true, but please know you need access to a mechanic's lift to install. THIS CANNOT BE DONE IN YOUR GARAGE/DRIVEWAY! No mechanic know-how necessary, but proper tools and lift is a MUST! Also - loud drone with this exhaust! Sound can get annoying for long periods of driving, and/or higher RPMs when accelerating. Overall bang for your buck is excellent in comparison to other setups. Won't cost a fortune, and will certainly enhance the sound significantly.

      Just what I was looking for!

      So before I purchased this exhaust I was running a muffler delete with my Pypes Off-road H pipe and I loved how loud and angry it was lol but it needed a little toned down. After lots of research I decided to give this setup a shot and it did exactly what I was hoping for. Any of the rasp was cleaned up and it left my car with that classic muscle car sound but still had about 85 of the the straight pipe volume. If you have an off-road setup and need it just a tad quieter this is the way to go! All the construction was immaculate and the fit was great. My buddy said "It looks like somebody took a bunch of new quarters and turned them into pipes." They are beautiful however the reason for the 4 star is that the tips don't quite poke out but that's not a big deal to me as I simply got new ones. All in all this is a great setup and I would recommend it to anyone.

      Great value for the money

      Has a nice deep rumble at idle, very loud at WOT with just a touch of rasp. Even without a tune throttle response was noticeably improved. The only downsides to this exhaust are the drone between 1900-2200 rpm(not unbearable but it's there), as well as the passenger side fitment was a bit off. Install took about 2 hours with a lift and In my opinion the tips could stick out 2 inches farther but overall, great value, great sound, would highly recommend this exhaust.

      Great product and value!

      I am very pleased with my purchase. I had them put on my daughters 2014 GT and it completely changed the car. The price is unbeatable and they look great. The reason for buying after market exhaust is to change the sound of your car and these catback exhaust sound better than I could have imagined. It has a low rumble that just sounds the way a GT Mustang is suppose to sound. They sound better than the Magnaflows I have on my 07 GT. I'm even thinking about changing out my magnaflows for MBRP on that car.

      What a bargain!

      I've had these installed on my 2013 mustang gt for about 2 weeks now. I feel like this has to be the best bargain in the exhaust market. T409 stainless steel at this price? Not many players in this price range. I wanted a really aggressive exhaust sound without breaking the bank. I was very torn between this system or the flow master outlaw system. I feel like this system isn't quite as aggressive as the flow master system, but it is more refined. The outlaw system had a good bit of "poppy" "raspy" noise at time. This system doesn't have that. It hits the aggressive low tones without the over-bearing harshness of the raspy tones. As other reviewers have said, there is some drone in the cabin around 1800-2000 rpm range. It doesn't bother me, and I don't think it will bother most car people. I can't wait to add the Headers and off-road x pipe to this cat back system. I feel like that will open the aggressiveness up even more. Would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for budget friendly, quality exhaust

      Mbrp catback

      Bought this catback after hearing some clips on YouTube. I wanted something different then the regular Borla, Slp, Flowmaster, ect. Took me and friend about 3 hours to install. Finish was some of the best quality I have ever seen. Fit was good. The only thing was that on mine the tail pipes didn't come out far enough like I wanted. Still not that big of a deal. They come out a bit short. At least mine did. After the install. I fired it up, boy was I impressed! Sound was deep and crisp. I had muffler deletes and no cats. I was shocked it was not as loud as I thought. Especially compared to the deletes. But still loud and I actually like it better. I think this is the best bang for the buck catback out there. I'm the only one around my city with this distinctive sound. Turns heads and I get compliments all the time now.

      Oldschool rumble that screams!

      I wanted a good set of stainless steel cat-backs to get rid of my stock mufflers and my resonators. This was a great match for the stainless steel Longtubes headers and matching mid pipe I ordered as well. I have to say installation of these are a breeze! My best suggestion to get these installed is by using a lift, because of how tricky the over-axle piping is to both remove and install. The fit an finish is top notch! I knew right away after opening the box I made the right choice. After a few months of going through some heat cycle's the piping has turned this awesome gold color. Which is awesome because it makes for great photos. Since all of the piping is stainless steel I will never have to worry about the piping rusting, which is fantastic! Now on to what we all want to know. The sound these admit even from an idle is just amazing. With the longtubes I have on my Coyote it just makes the ground rumble around the car. At WOT these mufflers just straight up scream! Nothing is to terribly over the top with noise levels which is awesome for every one you, you're neighbors, even that hot date you have going to the movies with you.
