    Ready To Rock! If you want an exhaust upgrade for your 2011-2014 5.0L that not only looks great, sounds beastly and will improve exhaust flow for an increase of up to 9 RWHP, then get your hands on this RTR Tactical Performance Competition Spec Axle-Back. 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 System was made in close collaboration with Magnaflow Exhaust.

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

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

    Black Ceramic Coating. This RTR Tactical Performance Competition 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 Competition Spec Exhaust is 14 lbs. lighter than the stock Ford axle-back system. This makes 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 stock piping without any modifications or special tools required for an easy installation.

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

    If in the future I want to upgrade my headers and x-pipe, do you sell the intermediate tubing between the x-pipe and mufflers?

    • At this time we do not sell over axle pipes for the RTR Tactical Performance Competition Spec Axle-Back Exhaust. We do carry these pipes from LTH and Borla, but have not tested these with the RTR Exhaust. https://www.americanmuscle.com/borla-over-axle-pipes-1114-gt-gt500.htmlhttps://www.americanmuscle.com/lth-over-axle-pipe-1114gt.html

    Could you suggest me the best exhaust system for 2010 Mustang GT. I would also like to know if the RTR Tactical Performance Exhaust will fit in 2010 Mustang GT.

    • This exhaust will not be compatible with a 2010 Mustang Gt unfortunetly, however feel free to give us a call if you are looking for any suggestions on exhaust systems! We would just have to ask you some additional questions in order to make the best possible recommendation based on your needs.

    I have a 2012 Shelby GT500, and was curious if these would fit on my vehicle? Thanks!

    • Unfortunately, the RTR Tactical Performance Competition Spec Axle-Back Exhaust - Black Tip (11-14 GT) will not fit a 2012 Shelby GT500. If you are looking for a loud aggressive exhaust, I suggest the Borla ATAK Axle-Back Exhaust (11-12 GT500), item # 387227, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/borla-atak-axleback-1112gt500.html). The Borla Atak's feature an extremely aggressive muscle car sound that can be comparable to the RTR Tacticals.

    I love the sound of the RTR Street axle Back. What is the difference between that and the Comp series?

    • The difference between Street and Comp spec is: Street Spec gives a more "racey" sound, as it crackles and is more raspy. Comp Spec gives a more "muscle" tone, it will give you a low deep tone and resembles the classic muscle car sound.

      Awesome growl

      I have an O/R x pipe and the RTR tactical competition mufflers. A cold start is really loud but sounds amazing. Rich sounding, soon as it warms up it mellows out. Soon as you hit the gas it opends up and lets out a roar as you go down the road. Love them!

      Beautiful axleback exhaust upgrade

      I just replaced my Gt500 exhaust axlebacks with this superior upgrade. I have had my 2013 Race Red GT premium for 5 years since new and was ready for an upgraded and more performance orientated exhaust system. The sound and note is, shall I say, far more impressive. There is a slight drone at highway speed, nothing to worry about,but running through the 6 speed select shift auto, the sound is music to the ears. Also, the chrome tips compliment my other exterior mods far better than the black ones.

      Great sound even my wife likes

      I had an MBRP cat-back that I got as part of an insurance repair, and while I loved the sound of it outside the car, it was way too loud and too much drone inside the car. My wife would barely ride with me. AM had a great Black Friday price on the RTR so I bought it. After finding some OE over axel pipes, I swapped out the MBRP for the RTR. Couldn't be happier! The sound of the RTR is very deep and just a little "dirty" with a few pops and crackles. Revs are smooth, deep, and just loud enough. Accelerating sounds fantastic! Bottom line - if you just want loud at any cost, get something else. But if you want great sound quality that gets attention without angering the neighbors or bleeding your ears, then go with the RTR.

      O/R x pipe with these... AMAZING

      So originally I had Pype bombs axle backs installed and the sound was pretty nice. Once I installed my O/R X pipe the drone in my car was unbearable. The sound of the car was loud but not in a great way. I still wanted loud and aggressive but wanted to be able to listen to music and talk when I need to. The sounds these give when cruising remind me of an Aston Martin ( I work next to an Aston dealer). These Axle backs sound great consistently in all speeds, especially on WOT. They are well made and beautiful to look at.

      Can take much more than an hour to install

      Since my 2011 Mustang GT with 35,000 miles was mildly rusty on the underside, the joint connectors on the bolts spun and ruined my stock clamps. Then, the stock axle-back would not release from the pipe. I used PB blaster on both and hammered at it for hours. I finally took it to the shop where they cut the stock pipe off and used a torch to allow the flanged section to be removed. I checked the local automotive shops for replacement clamps in KC and nobody had them. Ford had them for $50 a piece. Luckily, my shop found two for $16 each at a wholesale distributor 30 miles away. If you have any rust around the axle-back to mid-pipe connection, plan ahead. In the end, it was worth the hassle. It's very quite when you are off the gas and has nice loud tone that brings a smile to my face when accelerating. Its fairly loud, but its not the in your face and annoying type of loud that will get you complaints from your neighbors.

      Wake up the Neighborhood!

      The Exhaust Looks and sounds awesome! It was a bit damaged when I got it though, not sure how cause it was packaged better than a new born baby leaving a hospital, but the connection on the passenger exhaust was bent and I had to beat it back to round with a hammer to connect it... and there was a chip on the top of the RTR tip, but its hidden under the bumper now that its installed..

      Review from RTR Tactical Performance Competition Spec Axle-Back Exhaust - Black Tip (11-14 GT)

      Fitment issues and a weird note

      Arrived fast and well packaged, but after installing in the garage, noticed that the tips were both slanted towards the inside and both were hitting the inner valance. Had to take it to a shop to get it adjusted and the ended up having to bend the hangers on each side in order to get them to sit in the middle of the opening. Not a huge deal, and only cost me $60, but not exactly "plug n play". The biggest issue I have with these though is that while certainly louder than stock, and have a great note from inside the car, on the outside however there is a... "crispyness" is the only way I can describe it. There is of course the nice deep rumble and bubble, but there is also a high-pitched noise in the mix that sounds like a baffle is loose or something. Comes from the driver side more than the passenger, but it's unpleasant and noticeable. It's also not as loud as I had initially hoped, you can't hear it at all at idle from inside the car with the windows down in traffic. The drone at 2000RPM in 6th gear is almost unbearable, turning on some music helps, but if you're cruising at 70 it plain sucks. As a side note I have everything else still stock (intake, headers, tune, etc). In the end i'll probably leave it on for now, as it's still a vast improvement over stock (and I paid almost $700 including install), but i'll be looking for something else in the meantime.

      Perfect blend of modern and classic muscle sound.

      Looking for the right Axle Back is not easy task. After months of searching I went with the RTR Tactical Performance Competition Spec Axle-Back and is worth the money. All of my friends have Roush Axle Back and their impresed and in love with this RTR. It can be quiet in lower RPM and very loud in high RPM. The sound is much better and louder than the one you hear in the video.

      Great axle back

      After months of listening to sound clips ( which don't do justice to the real sound) I decided to go for the RTR Tactical and I was very happy when I finally got to hear them. They are loud when needed but otherwise very bearable. There is a drone at 2k rpms in 6th gear but any minimal increase in rpms will make it go away. Beautiful sound. You will not be disappointed. Paid 60 bucks to a local shop to install.

      Review from RTR Tactical Performance Competition Spec Axle-Back Exhaust - Black Tip (11-14 GT)

      These exhausts are the bee's knees! Everything from the aggressive tone to the black ceramic finish! As far as sound, idle is aggressive and starts off loud. It can be quiet as well. Installation took about 2 hours. I used my 120 piece toolbox, Rhino Ramps for lift, and an extra pair of hands. To avoid disconnecting the tail pipe from the h-pipe I removed the hangers with the rubber mounts and then took out the stock exhausts. Afterwards, I just slipped in these bad boys! It's a really easy install if you want to avoid paying a mechanic. Especially if you just shelled out 600 wing wangs got these exhausts.

      Great exhaust with deep rumble

      I have a Boss 302 with the side pipe restrictor plates removed so my car may differ in sound compared to a GT. However, before purchasing these axle-backs I poured over YouTube and various sites for days researching. I kept returning to these and they fit the bill. At cold start they are very deep sounding and fairly loud but not obnoxious. You won't irritate your neighbors. At normal idle they are no louder than stock. The videos do not capture that low deep sound that these emit during acceleration. At cruise speeds they are no louder than the stock mufflers, but under engine load they have a more wicked tone that the video captures fairly well. The fit and finish is perfect. They are actually much smaller than I thought they would be. After removing the stock muffler behemoths, these slipped right in within seconds. They arrived very well packaged and protected with no damage. Overall would buy again if given the choice.

      Thumbs up all the way for this product!!!!!

      I did a lot of research on picking out my axle backs, I went thru all the sound clips AM had to offer with my headphones on and the ones that kept grabbing my attention were the RTR's. I had the Pypes Pype bomb before I made the switch, the Pypes sounded really good but the RTR's sound amazing! I will say when I'm cruising the Pypes were a little louder but once I get on it the RTR's sound WAY deeper it's like night and day! The exhaust came well packaged nothing came damaged and the finish looks amazing!
