- How to Install an Axleback Exhaust on your 2011-2012 Mustang GT
Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at Pypes black pype-bomb axle back exhaust system for your 2011 and up Mustang GT. The pype bomb is for someone who wants to be both seen, and heard, this is due to the fact that this kit uses muffler deleting, resonator tips, which allow for a much more aggressive exhaust note. The system is constructed from free flowing, mandrel bent, 304 stainless and features two 4 inch resonator tips with a black powdercoated finish. Install is very easy and should take you about an hour using standard hand tools. Let’s hear how to pype bombs compare to the factory exhaust.

I have been trying to find the pipes I wanted to get the sound I wanted and found these. After two years of searching and I love the look and the sound. They are a bit loud but the local police have not stopped me even when one was following me.Helpful (3)

Not as bad as everyone says.
Alright let's start with the Shipping, shipping was incredibly fast, like I'm talking about I bought it late night and in the morning it was already shipped so that's awesome! Next let's talk packaging, each muffler is sitting opposite to each other in the box wrapped and foam on the tips and bubble wrap, still somehow the tips ended up dinged, so I honestly think that these get dinged at the factory before it gets packaged because how mine was packaged there was just no way it could get damaged during transit. Now let's talk about supplied part and the fit. First off if I could give one large piece of advice to Pypes it would be this, I'd honestly pay a little more if they came with a pair of exhaust clamps, I personally hated that I had to cut mine off to be reused, but I also understand that this is a budget axel back so I didn't dwell on it too much. Now for the fit, as for the length sticking out of the bumper, this axel back sticks out quite a bit compared to other axel backs and this has to be done by design and honestly I love that look and is 70 of the reason I got it. When bolted on correctly mine say spread out, meaning looking from the back of the car the left muffler sits alot closer to the left leaving a gap to the right of the muffler. The passenger side muffler sat exactly like the left however mirrored so it sat closer to the right leaving a gap to the left. They basically hug the bumper very tightly. To get them to fit in the center how I liked all I did was unbolt the exhaust clamps hold them in the position I wanted mark them with a marker and wrapped the marked point in plasma tape, and in a couple of weeks I'm heading to a buddies shop to weld a small rim where the tape is in order for the rubber hanger to not move around keeping it centered. Lastly let's talk about sound, well good news is they sound great, they're a hair quieter thank having no mufflers at all, but it's noticably deeper in tone, okay now for the big one DRONE, does it have drone? Of course it does again referencing to having no mufflers at all you have a large "cone" of drone from 2000-3000rpm. With this axel back it tightens that cone to 1900-2100rpm, and admittedly it gets pretty rough at that rpm. For the conclusion this is definitely a budget system, but does that mean it's a bad system? Absolutely not, truth be told I think this system is incredible for the price, there can definitely be improvements to make this better and that's reflected in the 4/5 star rating I'm giving this. So if you're looking for a nice budget system that'll have some real killer presentation I couldn't argue with anyone if they brought up this system into the argument.Helpful (3)

The fit was only tricky in that the factory interface is a ball-style flange, which doesn't orient itself. With some effort, you can get it to seal, but it's not "plug-n-play". My factory pipes were rusted on, but the Mustang's scissor-jack, between the traction-bar and the muffler end, popped them right off.Helpful (4)

Great product, fitment was perfect, was worried this exhaust would be too loud because it is a muffler delete, but the 4 inch resonated tips do a great job of keeping the volume down. Great deep tone, also nice crackle when down shifting.Helpful (5)

When I bought my GT they were already on. I must say that I love the sound. I have to be careful cause now i'm just going fast to hear the car roar down the street. Love them and would definitely recommend them.Helpful (4)
Which one has the deepest sound? Pype-Bomb, SLP Loud Mouth, or MBRP Muffler Delete?
The description says that the resonator tips eliminate the popping sound. If I put these on my Boss 302 will I still get that popping sound due to the side exit exhausts?
This would not eliminate exhaust popping no.
On my mustang right now I have a muffler resonator delete. If I were to install these, would I have to delete my resonators again?
The Pypes Black Pype-Bomb Axle-Back Exhaust is a muffler delete exhaust system with specially engineered tips which include resonators.
I accidentally ordered these instead of the v6 option,would these fit the v6 or is there a big difference to where it would definitely not fit.
The Pypes Black Pype-Bomb Axle-Back Exhaust is designed to fit the the 2011 to 2014 GT Mustangs, It may fit the V6 however it has not been tested so we can not guarantee the fitment due to piping size.
Does this system cause any drone?
The Pypes Black Pype-Bomb Axle-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT) will have some drone. The only exhaust company's we carry that offer zero drone would be Corsa and Roush exhaust.
It entirely depends on the rest of the exhaust setup, but even then, the gains, if any, are pretty negligible. I'm talking single digit numbers in regards to extra horses provided by these Pypes Black Pype-Bomb Axle-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT), if there are any to gain at all. Honestly, I would suggest focusing on your desired sound, as opposed to HP gains, when looking at axle-back exhausts.
The Pypes Black Pype-Bomb Axle-Back Exhaust (11-14 GT) feature a 3" piping which will not be a direct bolt on to the Borla ATAK Cat-Back Exhaust. In order to install these together, you will need to make modifications. We recommend professional installation of these two parts.
Replacing your cat back system will help with air flow thus creating a bit more power. But not by a significant amount. If you're looking for an easy bolt on increase that will also make your car sound more aggressive then it is certainly a better option than the axle back setup alone. I don't think a 20hp gain is possible with the cat back system. For that large of a gain you'll need headers.
The axle-back and x-pipe do not bolt directly to one another, but they are both direct replacements of their stock counterparts. You can use both of these on your Mustang without any problems. Enjoy your new setup!
Unfortunately not. The GT and V6 axle-backs fit differently and this particular set up is meant for 11-13 GT only. We do sell this exact axle-back for your V6 though! Check out the link below!
