Ford Performance By Borla Stainless Steel Touring 2-1/2" Cat-Back Exhaust System with 4" Black Exhaust Tips for all 2015, 2016 and 2017 GT Mustangs.

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.

Ford Performance introduces their brand new Touring Cat-Back system by Borla for all 2015-2017 GT Mustangs to help solve this problem. Manufactured out of T-304 Stainless Steel, this 2-1/2" cat-back exhaust system will give you a more aggressive muscle car sound, but yet retain a low and smooth tone. The Ford Performance by Borla Cat-Back exhaust system utilizes an integral X-pipe that bolts directly to your factory catalytic converters, keeping your Mustang 100% emission compliant. And the tuned stainless steel mufflers with 4" Black tips not only sound great but look amazing as well.

Video Transcript

If you follow our project car builds here are CJ's, you know that we like to do 1 modification at a time, mostly because that's where you're going to be doing at home. Our newest project car is this Deep Impact Blue 2015 GT. We plan on doing the exact same thing. The only difference here, is this is actually my personal car, so I get to choose every part we're going to install. On my 2011 GT, I ran Ford Racing Touring Exhaust System and loved the sound. When I saw Ford Racing offered the Touring for the 2015 and even had black tips, which I wanted, it was a no brainer. Today we're going to do the first modification to my 2015 GT, this Ford Racing Touring Cat-back Exhaust System.

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.

Vehicle Fitment

This product will fit the following Mustang years:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep rumble at idle; screams under acceleration! Easily installed in under and hour, fitment is almost perfect! A nice deep muscle car tone at idle and under light acceleration, which is noticeable but will not bother any neighbors at all. BUT this system really wakes up when you put your foot down and sounds insane when going under tunnels and through canyons! Interior noise is non-existent on the highway but you will the system when picking up speed or going uphill, which is what you want! Highly recommend this Touring system to anyone looking to upgrade their exhaust on a daily driver. I personally think the Sport or louder systems would be overbearing to hear everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aggressive When You Want It, Calm When You Don't The Ford Racing By Borla Stainless Steel Touring 2-1/2" Cat-Back Exhaust System with 4" Black Exhaust Tips sounds absolutely amazing and is a huge improvement over the stock system. It's got the grunt and rumble when you want it but it's quiet enough that the wife will still ride in the car with you. Installation took about an hour by myself using jack stands and rolling around on the garage floor (a good bit of time was lining everything up just right). The black tips looks great with Guard and I couldn't be happier. The order process was excellent as always through CJ Pony Parts and everything arrived undamaged with super easy to follow instructions. If you're looking for an easy bolt-on that you can do with minimal experience/tools this is a great place to start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound Car sounds much better now compared to stock. X pipe gives it a more racecar feel than the muscle car rumble of an h pipe. Loud when you want it but quiet enough to not bither the neighbors or be uncomfortable on the highway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The black tips look amazing! The Ford performance by Borla was a great choice!!!! It is a little deeper and louder at idle than stock with a slight lopy idle. Nice!! And it wakes up when ya get on it. I have it on my 2016 GT Convertible and it bolted right up. No drone Highway and at lower speeds it is just fine. I would recommend this exhaust for anyone who is looking for something with a great and not over powering sound. It does wake up though when getting on it. I love it!! I have gotten complements on it too. Glad I purchased this one. Sounds amazing!!!

what is the difference between this and the Borla S-Type exhaust?

Asked by: Mike
The s type is louder than the touring.

I'm assuming the 4" inch tip refers to the length of the tip. What is the diameter of the tip? I believe the OEM tip is 3.25" and I'm hoping the Borla has a larger diameter. Thanks

Asked by: Boston23
That refers to the diameter.

I already have this set up.  My question is, if I decide to by the Atak axle back, can I just easily swap back and forth?  No cutting?

Asked by: Rocktight
Yes you could.

What sort of $$ for shipping to Australia? Just an estimate for now will do. Need to compare against buying from a dealer here in Aus.

I've already placed an h-pipe on my '16 GT and what I want is the touring borla with black tips in the axle back. Do you sell the borla axle back in the touring with black tips.  All I can find is cat back.  Thx, Cory

Does this exhaust allow for 2015 GT Convertible additional factory bracing thats forward of the rear axle? What is the difference between the X-pipe in this system vs the almost identical Borla touring system ending in 589bc that has a resonator? 

Asked by: 777300ER
Yes, it will fit the convertible model with the bracing. The Borla Touring system with the resonator will be a little quieter.
