Right away, one of the first things people will notice on the new 2015-2017 Mustang GT is how quiet the factory exhaust is. Although you can still tell there is a 5.0L V8 under the hood, the factory exhaust leaves most muscle car enthusiasts needing just a little more volume and tone.

Intermediate skill is required for this installation.
I went with the cat-back, because I wanted to get rid of the factory resonator, which I know is not only heavy, but it's robbing horsepower. The Ford Racing Exhaust starts with this x-pipe, which replaces the resonator goes through a set of 2-1/2" tail pipes that are all man draw bent stainless steel. Going through a set of the Ford Racing bi-boiler mufflers, ending in the killer black tips.
We're going to start with some sound clips of the factory exhaust. First a few in our studio, then we'll take it for a ride....It's not bad sounding for a stock exhaust, but I definitely want something more aggressive.
For this installation, get a lift or a jack and jack stands, 3/8 ratchet, 13 mm deep socket, 15 mm deep socket, 6" extension and safety glasses. The Ford Racing Touring Cat-back is going to install the same way as the sport cat-back that we recently showed you. Basically, you're going to move these nuts here to loosen these clamps, remove the brackets in the back and slide it off. Remove these 2 bolts here that hold the hangers in place. Once you removed the bolts, simply lift up on the exhaust to unhook them from the bottom. Now we can remove our cat-back. To remove the cat-back, you'll want to get some help. It's large; it's all 1 piece. It's actually very heavy as well. What you do, is you're going to slide it back off the factory pipes and then slide it forward to get it off the rear hangers. There we go. Now you want to pull it towards to me to get it off. Take it right over here.
We've had a couple cars where the pipes don't slide back far enough out of these to get it off. In that case, this pipe's flexible. This one, you should have no problem. On the driver's side, simply loosen the bolt here. That'll allow the pipe to flex down and make it easier to slide it off. Once the stock exhaust is off, remove the factory hangers and leave them for the Ford Racing. So, I got the Ford Racing Exhaust and putting the x-pipe into place. Then we'll tighten the clamps down. We don't have to tighten them all the way, just enough to hold it. Once the x-pipe's on, we can start with our tail pipe. We're going to put a clamp on the front, and then slide the hanger onto the new exhaust hanger.
Now grab the mufflers and the clamp. Again, the mufflers are also side-specific. Put the clamp on first. Put it up in the hanger. Then connect it to our tail pipe. You want to get the pipes into place and adjust it and start tightening everything down. Now our last step is to reinstall the factory hanger bolts. Your installation's finished.
I already love the way it looks with the black tips. Let's hear how it sounds. Oh hell yeah, that's the sound I was looking for. Let's go take it for a drive.
The Ford Racing Touring sounds great out on the road. It's louder than stock but actually not that much louder. You can tell it's after market, but not loud in the cabin at all. We're doing 60 right now, keeping up with traffic on the highway. There is zero drone. You can barely actually even hear the system until you down shift and get on it a little bit. Like I said, it sounds good, but it's not loud at all inside the cabin at all.
The Ford Racing Touring Cat-back was a perfect choice for my first modification. It fits well, sounds amazing. The black tips look killer on the performance pack car. Installation is pretty straight forward; probably take you less than an hour. For more installation videos on my 2015 GT, make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel.
