Mustang GT Borla S-Type vs ATAK Exhaust Sound Clips

Last Updated December 21, 2021 | Bill Tumas

Borla has been one of the top name-brand exhaust manufacturers for the late model Mustang. With various options depending on your taste, their two most popular offerings are the S-Type and ATAK Cat-Backs.

For the 2015-2017 Mustang GT, that is no different! The Borla ATAK Cat-Back is for those Mustang owners who want to wake up people sleeping over in the next neighborhood, whereas the S-Type is a more middle-of-the-road approach where it’s only loud when it needs to be.

So which one do you like? Make the decision for yourself:

Borla ATAK Cat-Back for the 2015-2017 Mustang GT:

With such a raw exhaust note, this exhaust option really brings out the raw power that the factory 435 horsepower Coyote V8 has to offer. It’s amazing that the exhaust note and volume produced out of this system is even possible with keeping the factory catalytic converters intact.

The ATAK cat-back system from Borla is a great option for those looking to get a raw, race-inspired exhaust note out of their S550 GT.

Borla S-Type Cat-Back for the 2015-2017 Mustang GT:

Standing next to the ATAK Cat-Back, the S-Type option brings down the volume meter quite a bit. For those who live in neighborhoods or are concerned about being too loud, the S-Type Cat-Back is a great option. With a similar exhaust tone to the ATAK, but with about 25-30% less volume, you’ll be able to get that iconic Borla sound without being too loud.

The Borla S-Type cat-back system is the perfect exhaust option for the Mustang owner who doesn’t want to necessarily wake the entire neighborhood, but definitely wants to be noticed when you rev it up and dump the clutch!
