    Review & Install Video

    What's up, guys? Stephanie with americanmuscle.com, and this is my review and an install of the MBRP Race Series Cat-Back Exhaust, fitting 2011-2014 GT Mustangs. We're gonna be talking about a few different things with this exhaust today. But mainly we'll talk about the sound of the cat-back and the install. The install for this is easy. It's a one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, since cat-backs simply bolt right up, but I'll get more into that later. The MBRP Race Series Cat-Back is gonna be a good option for the S197 owners out there that are looking for a deep sounding system that isn't over the top or too loud. So this is a deep sounding cat-back that doesn't have much raspiness, and it sounds different than a lot of other cat-backs that are out there right now. MBRP has included their Race series mufflers, and this set-up is gonna give a sound that's like the MBRP Street Cat-Back, but with more volume, as you guys already heard from the sound clips. So MBRP has a few options when it comes to the Race Cat-Back for the S197 GT. They make this cat-back in stainless steel, aluminized, which is the version that we have here today, and aluminized with black tips. Now, they are all are gonna sound the same, of course, but they will change slightly in price. But I'll talk more about that later. And keep in mind that you also have the option of the Street Cat-Back on top of the Race Cat-Back. And the difference is gonna be in the sound. The Street and Race Cat-back are similar in sound, but the Street Cat-Back is quieter than the Race Cat-Back. But I wouldn't really say that the Street Cat-Back is quiet in the grand scheme of things, because it has some volume for sure. So this is a three-inch system that can work with both the stock or an aftermarket mid-pipe. So you are seeing a bump up in size here with the MBRP system. What's gonna make this cat-back different from the rest is going to be the mufflers. Like I said earlier, MBRP has the Race mufflers on this system, which are a lot like the Street series mufflers, but just less reined in. And I'm sure you picked up on this when you heard the sound clips earlier. These are straight-through mufflers, but they still give a tuned type of sound. And I know you can hear that this cat-back is deeper than the factory exhaust, and even as the RPMs start climbing, this is able to keep the deepness in tone. I keep mentioning this, but the Street Cat-Back is gonna sound along the same lines of this cat-back, but just quieter. So if you really like the Race Cat-Back from MBRP, but it's just a little too loud for you, then the Street Cat-Back will be an excellent choice for you. This cat-back, on the other hand, gives a smooth sound. And I didn't hear any sound distortion. There is a little bit of popping on diesel from the higher RPMs, but I don't think it takes away from the sound of this cat-back. It just adds to it, because it isn't over the top. And even though this cat-back does have some volume to it, there's no interior drone. You almost don't even notice that there's an aftermarket exhaust on the car at cruising speeds. So that means you won't have any trouble having a conversation or listening to the radio on a highway. So you won't have to worry about dealing with drone on trips. Overall, if you're looking for a louder, deep sounding system, then this could be a good option for you. This has a powerful sound to it, and it does have a deep growl to it as well. While it's not the loudest of the aftermarket options, it's still pretty loud. So I'm gonna give it a solid three out of five on the loudness scale. Cat-backs, it really all depends on what you're looking for, and luckily there are quite a few options out there. So like I mentioned earlier, MBRP gives you three different options when it comes to the Race Cat-Back. This is the aluminized steel version, which is gonna be the most budget-friendly of the three options, costing between $400 and $500. Then there's the black-tipped version, which is gonna cost about $600, and the stainless steel version, which costs between $500 and $600. But there are benefits of going with a powder-coated, or better yet, the stainless steel version, especially if your car is a daily driver. These are gonna give you a little bit more corrosion resistance. When it comes to the install, you're gonna be looking at an easy one out of three wrenches in the scale when we look at difficulty. This is considered a direct bolt-on item, so you won't need to cut anything or modify anything to get it installed. All that you're really gonna need is a socket set, and a lift would certainly make things easier, but the job can be done on jack stands as well. Gonna be removing the exhaust from the mid-pipe back, so an extra set of hands can make things easier for you here. You'll be moving the rear hangers to the new cat-back, so I'd recommend taking them off with the factory exhaust when you drop it. It will just make the swap a little bit easier. The whole cat-back can be dropped as one big piece, which is why an extra set of hands can help here. When you go to install your new set-up, it will probably be easiest to leave everything loose and to have it all lined up and then tighten it down. Cat-back does come with new clamps for you, so you don't have to worry about picking those up. You can figure on spending about an hour or two from start to finish to get all this done. Overall the MBRP Cat-Back is a great option for those looking for a deep sound, but not wanting a system that's gonna be too loud. This is a three-inch cat-back that comes complete and is a direct bolt-on install that requires no cutting. You can check this cat-back out online some more for yourself.

    can i use this on my 2012 Mustang V6. with it being just an exhaust system, shouldnt it work just fine?

    JamesT

    • The MBRP Installer Series Cat-Back Exhaust will not work on the 2012 V6, as the exhaust diameter is different (2.5" for v6 vs 2.75" for GT) where the exhaust would connect to the OEM exhaust, as well as several other small differences.

      Sounds great!

      I took off my recently purchased Hearthrob AxleBacks and decided to give these a try, mainly because I lost lots of hp/tq from them. Def wasn't in my head, my 0-60 times increased by 0.3 to 0.4 secs, HUGE difference. After putting these on, I am very happy, as I got my power back! Had a catted X pipe installed at the same time, so idk exactly which did which, but regardless, car sounds very mean, with zero rasp! Drone is VERY bad at 2k rpms, same loudness as the Hearthrobs that I just had on, so I'm used to it. Besides that, very pleased with the sound and smoothness of exhaust flow this mod gave me, you will not be disappointed!

      If you like it LOUD!

      Shipping as usual very fast. Easy install, floor jack and jack stands took about 1 1/2 hrs. It is loud...from start up to shut down. Very loud drone from 1700-2300 rpm. I like the sound of exhaust outsde, idle and driving. Drone seems to be mellowing some with miles. If this is a 4 out of 5 on loudness, I don't know what a 5 would be. I've driven with open headers on road and highway and they don't make this much cabin noise unless your on the mat. So be sure you want a really loud exhaust before you order this, or any like it. It however does go with my plans for my car.

      Fitment was perfect. Definitely a noticeable difference in over axel pipe size. A bit quite to me, guessing because I came from Pypes Bomb axelbacks. Overall really great product

      Love it except the tips

      The exhaust is great it sounds absolutely amazing and it isn't too loud but the tips that are supposed to be slip over were nowhere near the right size and even if they did slip over the axle backs the tips would be in past the diffusers melting them

      Great product, and an insane value.

      Wow, I couldn't believe how good this exhaust was until I actually got it installed and heard it. I'm running the stock H-pipe and manifolds, and the tonality is great. Good throaty growl, and about the perfect amount of volume for a daily driver. Drone is there, but not mind numbing. Highway cruises are still pleasant, although I do have factory 3.73 gears so I believe my rpms sit a tad higher than most other stock GT's, which may help with the drone. Install was less than an hour at my local shop, and they were surprised by how perfectly it fit. No rattles at all while going over bumps. Simply cannot beat this system for the price. Most axle-back systems coat this much, and this sounds far better than any axle back I've ever heard! Would reccomend to a friend in a heartbeat if they wanted a great catback system, without breaking the bank.

      Great sound, imperfect fitment

      I have a lift so the install was pretty easy. A word of caution to any less experienced mechanics out there, if the bolts on your original exhaust system are rusty you really need to soak them in WD-40 and just wait because you can easily break the heads off of the bolts. Anyways, the new system went in fairly easily with the car lifted. I couldn't imagine doing it on Jack stands. The sound is excellent, there is a slight drone right at 2000 rpm but it's not horrible. Great acceleration scream, but easy on the ears when cruising. I'm taking off one star because the driver side exhaust tip would not center in the cutout of the bumper cover. I worked it for the better part of an hour and could not make it fit perfectly.

      Deep, Muscle Car Sound

      To start it off American Muscle didn't disappoint, this cat-back came well packaged and looked great in the box. Removing the factory piping was a pain. I expected to raise my vehicle off the ground and with a little elbow grease, slide the piping out. I don't have a lift so I was using a couple floor jacks and jack stands, with a lift this would have been much easier, I couldn't get enough clearance under the vehicle to get the angles I needed to slide the exhaust out over the axle. So I ended up disconnecting the rear shock, lowering one axle at a time and removing my rear spring to create the room needed to get the pipes out. Once I did this the exhaust came out quickly and went in extremely easy. Exhaust fit perfectly. I had Flowmaster Outlaw axlebacks on before I installed this cat back. I love how loud and aggressive the Outlaw axleback is but the drone at around 2000rpm was rediculous for me (couldn't talk without practically yelling) because I tend to drive my small children and wife around town on the weekends and 2000rpm is where my car tends to cruise. Now this MBRP catback is loud, specially on acceleration and has a deeper muscle car sound then my outlaws did but very little drone at all. Very happy with this product all around. Would recommend to anyone.

      So Much Better Than Flowmaster

      I had the Flowmaster Outlaws paired with Longtube Headers and I must say, that combo did not sound good. Loud isn't always better so I decided to buy this catback and I'm very happy with the toned sound. The other exhaust I had was jut a bunch of noise but this sounds more refined and tamed. Had some fitment trouble but a little elbow grease really solved it all!

      Alignment issues and product defect

      First of all, exhaust system sounds great but I had serious issues with the hangers not lining up on one muffler and defect in the other muffler. The defect was that the diameter of the outlet end of the muffler was the same diameter as the polished tip . Therefore the tip wouldn't slide over the end of the muffler. Didn't find this out until the of the install and had to do some modifications to say the least.
