    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. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Will this bolt up to the dynatech off road x pipe? Wanting to run dynatech long tube headers with their off road x on my 2012. Looking for a catback that is 3 inch, dynatech says their stuff will not bolt up to stock cat back

    • Yes, this 3" cat-back system is compatible with the Dnyatech off road x-pipe and will fit perfectly together.

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

    • 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.

      Not worth the Pain

      first things first the tip didnt even fit on the muffler, one side was measured in inside 3 inxh diameter and one in 3 inch outside. so i had to take the exhaust to a shop and pay them to modify the tip to fit.. the hangers were all off and had to be bent a lot, then even after all that the tip didnt go past the bumper and i had to weld on an extension.

      Great sound, not very loud

      Pros: •Costs less than pretty much all axle backs and cat backs on the market •3 inch over axle pipes instead of 2.5 or 2.75 like most other cat backs •*my opinion* The best sound you’ll get from a system for a 5.0. Throaty, very deep tone with minimal rasp. •Install is fairly easy with a friend and jack stands Cons: •Its just really not loud at all. Side by side with any other mustang, Camaro, etc. with just axlebacks and resonators still on and you’ll get drowned out. •The drone at 2000 rpms is noticeable but for me (3.31 gear) 70-75 mph is miserable •The tips don’t line up •if you want to swap mufflers to get some more sound, it’s almost impossible to find 3 inch axlebacks that will mate to it. Only option is weld something in (mbrp muffler deletes DO NOT fit.) Overall: good system for someone who wants something mild. Would not agree with the loudness rating at all. Overall a better choice then spending $1000 on a competitor that basically gives you straight pipes.

      Nice Product Tuff Install on Jack Stands

      The product itself is really good! So much lighter then stock. Glad I went with the "raw" finish. Highly recommend that especially if installing on a garage floor. Love the exhaust note...deep and throaty. My concern is with the overall removal, install and fit. I watched the removal / install videos several times which always showed the car on a lift. A few things that should be mentioned are that if you install these in your garage on the floor, you will need to jack the car up approx 20" to get the stock pipes out, especially the drivers side. It does come in contact with the driver side rear spring. I got it out by using a pry bar to push the spring aside. Same issue with installing the new pipe. After getting everything installed, it came down to getting the stingers to exit evenly out the rear facia cutouts. I think there should be two more inches of material welded onto the rear of the muffler part for the stingers to slip over. That would have made things a bit easier. After going underneath now for the third time to loosen the pipes and twisting them I keep running into issues with hanger length and clearance issues between the muffler pipe and driver side front muffler hangar bracket. I finally settled on having the stingers exit almost at the top of the facia, centered, but they only exit approx .5" past the facia. I would like to have them set a little lower and exit at least 1.5" past the facia, but there isn't enough material on the rear of the muffler to slide the stingers back and have them tighten down properly. Again, I think the overall pipe is awesome, but wish AM in fairness would show the install both on the lift and on the garage floor. Most importantly, please include showing how to get the stingers centered in the rear facia. My 2011 GT only had 50k miles and was bone stock at the time of install, 6/23/18.

      The exhaust sounds great and definitely turns heads. The drone is a little rough right at 2k rpms, but after a while I stopped noticing it. Overall, very happy with sound and would recommend!

      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.

      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.
