Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Ready To Rock! These are the same exact premium mufflers that are included as original factory equipment on the Ford Mustang RTR designed and developed by Vaughn Gittin Jr. This RTR Axle-back not only looks and sounds great, but will also improve your Mustangs exhaust flow for an increase of up to 9 horsepower at the rear wheels. This system was made in close collaboration with Magnaflow Exhaust.

Loud Aggressive Sound. RTR worked closely with Magnaflow to achieve a very unique aggressive sound that gets rid of the robotic tones of the Coyotes variable cams for a clean and crisp consistent exhaust note with very minimal in car "drone."

Quality Construction. Manufactured from 100% stainless steel for long life and durability, this RTR Tactical Performance Street Spec Axle-Back Exhaust has free-flowing mandrel bent 3" tubing and chambered mufflers that feature 4" black finished tips and the "RTR" logo for truly aggressive styling.

Black Ceramic Coating. This RTR Tactical Performance Street Spec Axle-Back has been finished with a Black Ceramic protective coating that not only gives this exhaust a dark and intimidating appeal, but it also provides a high temperature thermal barrier for additional protection from the elements.

Lightweight. The RTR Tactical Performance Street Spec Exhaust is 14 lbs. lighter than the factory Ford axle-back system making it perfect for street, track and drag racers who are looking to shed unwanted weight in the pursuit of quicker times.

Direct Bolt-On Installation. Engineered to be a direct upgrade replacement, this RTR Axle-Back will easily bolt straight up to the factory piping without any modifications or special tools required for an easy installation.

Application. This RTR Tactical Performance Street Spec Axle-Back Exhaust System is specifically designed to fit the 2011-2014 GT Mustangs equipped with the Coyote 5.0L DOHC V8 engine.

      Any of that iritating popping sound when letting off the throttle after wide open throttle?

      • When it comes to putting exhaust on these Mustangs you will always notice a slight popping noise when you let off the gas. But the RTR Tactical Performance Street Spec Axle-Back Exhaust w/ Black Tips seems to have the smallest amount of that with almost no popping when you let off the gas out of all of the exhausts. I think this exhaust will be perfect for you!

      2012 v6 If i got the bbk headers and catted xpipe will this exhaust fit on my car? If not is there any way i can get it to fit?

      • I emailed Mustang RTR and ask them if this exhaust would fit on my 2013 V6, they said it wouldn't but that they well have one available soon for the V6. I hope that helps answer your question.

      Are these legal in California?

      • Unfortunately they do not have a CARB code. However, generally most axle-back exhausts will be fine depending on how loud they are. I would recommend checking with your state ordinances to see if the exhaust you want to add will be legal.

          Great sound

          This was just the right level of loud for me. It is perfectly in between the stock muffler and the Roush mufflers. Doesn’t drone but comes alive with a little throttle

          A Mature exhaust

          I recently got this exhaust and installed it myself. It's EXACTLY what I was looking for There's a much deeper quality to the exhaust note now, but the volume is only slightly above the factory levels. In my ratings, I stated it at 2/5 stars as a closer representation of the volume. For me, it's 5 stars perfect levels. Oh, and most importantly, virtually no drone on the highways. The fit and finish is quite, though some minor tweaking to get the exhaust to seat, and the tips to stick out at the right levels was needed. Bang for the buck? I got mine on sale, which helped, and they're high quality, but the price is a bit steep as well. In this case, I'd call it paying for quality.

          Quiet but great

          Installed this in place of the Roush axle back on my car because with the long tubes and O/R X pipe it was obnoxiously loud. The RTR exhaust quieted it down significantly to an acceptable level. I would imagine on an otherwise stock car that it would be very quiet. Very pleased with the quality of the product and ease of install.

          Great Old School Sound...

          I also listened to about 10-20 other axle back options on the web, and I always kept coming back to the RTR's. REALLY glad I did. Took less than an hour to put these on and they sound great. Low growl = nice. Not tinny sound or popping. These really level out when you hit cruising speed. Sounds real BA when you put your foot into that 5.0 liter. If you like the modern "skidder" (ping-ping-ping) sound, you should probably look elsewhere. These are what an Old School (not necessarily old) V8 sounds like.

          Good sound, but needs a design change

          I ordered this muffler set to quiet my 2013 GT. Previously I had Kook's Long Tube headers, X pipe, and high flow cats running to Flowmaster Outlaw pipes and mufflers. Way too loud, as everyone in a 2 mile radius could hear my car. The RTR mufflers quieted it down to a really nice rumble, I love the sound. But I definitely miss those Outlaw mufflers at times. The design needs a little fix though. The inlet for the pipes has a super short flange for the exhaust pipe, about 3/4", where the Flowmaster has about 3 inches. I couldn't get it secure and leak free, so I had no choice but it have it welded on. I don't mind that fix, just wish it would've been as simple as a clamp to hold it. Otherwise, it has great construction, looks good, and I love the new sound.

          Good Sound

          This exhaust sounds amazing.. It has a unique tone to it that sets you apart from anyone on the road. I watched a LOT of videos listening to exhaust and to be honest you have to hear it in person. It has a deep rumble with a tuner like rasp to it. I will say if your looking for a really loud exhaust than this is NOT for you. It sounds really good at 3500-4500 RPM but after that it dies down. I did feel a noticeable difference in throttle response as it freed up some exhaust air. In conclusion: If your looking for a unique sound that is not going to pis off your neighbors or be THAT GUY... than this exhaust is for you.

          Nice mellow sound, a bit quieter than I expected

          Put these on and the sound difference was immediate. It's a much lower rumble, with no signs of tinniness or pinging that you may hear in the videos. Fit and construction was top notch. A bit of done at 2K RPMs, but nothing unbearable. 4 stars because these are a bit quieter than I expected, but it does have a healthy sound.

          The look is better than the sound but overall good

          Well I bought a 2014 RTR Spec II last year and it came with those mufflers installed. They really have a perfect look on my RTR with the black tips and the logo on 'em but for the sound I expected a bit more. They're not bad at all and they have a nice, deep and bubbling sound on a cold start but after a few minutes they'll get significantly quiet and the same happens when accelerating. Before the RTR I owned a 2010 GT with Flowmaster Outlaws which, in combination with BBK Shortys and X-Pipes, was way too loud so having something in between would not be that bad for me. If they could remain the sound as when cold started I'd give 5 stars :)

          rtr axlebacks

          Fit and finish would get 5 stars but the outlet pipe on one of the mufflers was dented, had to have mechanic fix it. 1 hour to install by mechanic, volume was too low, expected to be louder than the previous flowmaster hushpower pro but was'nt. Exhaust note was excellent, no rasp or drone. A LITTLE louder than stock. Ceramic coating was flawless as was the separate tips. Kind of expensive, but if you want an upgrade from stock w/o being too loud, get these.

          Excellant

          Easy to install, Excellent tone quality, there is NO burble sound that comes out when you let off the throttle. The sound bite that is in the AM video is very accurate. They make the car sound powerful without being to loud and have NO in cockpit drone what so ever. I think they are awesome and I highly recommend them for an every day driver.

          Deep Sound, Great Exhaust

          So I purchased these about 4 months ago and lets just say they are loud compared to the stock exhaust. When you start the car it has a loud deep sound to it, only thing is that I expected more but if you see the design it has it makes sense because if it was one chamber where the air flows out of it would be louder, but since it has 2 chambers that let the air out one being straight through make sense why its decent loud and why it gives it that extra 9 horsepower.

          RTR Street Exhaust Review...

          After watching the 2015 RTR Mustang Introduction video on youtube I was hooked on the RTR exhaust sound. The sound, quality, and fit/finish was everything I expected from RTR/Magnaflow. The sound on start-up is really mean, and then settles down once the car warms up. There is no drone on the highway whatsoever. Just as everybody else said these mufflers make a really nice deep sound, with little to no rasp. My favorite part of this exhaust is the de-acceleration sound it makes. The best way to describe it, is that it sounds like thunder. Its just a really great sound. You can't go wrong with this exhaust.

          Nice and deep but a little quiet and muffled

          I had the Borla Atak axle back and it was beyond loud so it had to go. I also wanted something a little deeper sounding and not as raspy. I watched some videos of the RTR and it sounded pretty good so I decided to try them out and they are about half as loud as the Ataks. Plus with my white car and blacked out everything else I figured the tips would look good. Overall the sound is pretty good. Its very deep but has kind of a muffled sound inside the car. Outside the car it sounds much better. I read how people said it seems to get quieter as you get on it more and it does seem to. There is also a drone at 2000 RPM although its not awful and can be covered up by having the stereo on. The Borlas had no drone whatsoever. The tips are not welded on which allows you to adjust them unlike the Borlas which stuck out too far and couldn't be moved. The tips are also much smaller than the Borlas. Installation was pretty easy with a lift and 2 people but doing it on the ground would not be too fun since we had to remove the hanger brackets from the car to get the old mufflers out. It took about an hour to do the whole thing.
