These mufflers provide an amazing upgrade to your stock setup. Great rumble at idle, nice gurgle when you let off the gas, you hear the power as you accelerate, but at steady RPM on the highway they are quiet as can be. Great upgrade, great price.

  Exactly what I was after
By on 10/7/2013
I recently sold an '03 Mustang GT with Ford Racing headers, a Bassani x-pipe and Flowmaster mufflers. The car sounded fantastic, but had some serious drone at cruising speeds which drove me nuts. When I bought my '13 GT I wasn't happy with the stock sound, but didn't want anything obnoxious, so after reading a pile of reviews, decided on the GT500 exhaust. Couldn't be happier, it sounds mean at idle and accelerating, but absolutely no drone. They're a perfect balance of aggressive and tolerable. And cheap (comparatively) to boot!

  Fantastic sound! Great Sound! Extremely Satisfied!
By on 9/15/2013
I researched a lot of different exhausts for my 2012 Mustang GT. I wanted something that was throatier and more pronounced than the stock mufflers, but not something that I would regret later for being too loud. After contemplating between the Borla exhaust and the GT500, I decided to go with this one and I couldn't be happier. It just sounds great throughout all the RPM ranges and is significantly more pronounced than stock, but not obnoxious by any means. Absolutely no drone. I guarantee you will not regret putting these on. This is what should come stock on all Mustang GTs.

  Ford GT500 Axle Back
By on 2/4/2014
I did some research and decided to get these for my 2014GT. I put these on with less than 250 miles on my new GT, and I love them. On the highway there is no drone and they are quiet while cruising. Start the car up they have a deep muscle car sound. Give it some gas while driving and they open up. These should have come with the vehicle from the factory. At the very least this should have been an option on the car.

This exhaust made my car sound so good. It's a perfect sound I was looking for, it sounds mean upon take off and when I accelerate and sounds nice but strong when I go slow. Just what I was looking for. Not to mention it made the back of the car look better with bigger and bolder looking tips compared to the factory ones. AWESOME!!

Excellent all around. Quick shipping, arrived in great shape and is a great addition. Local shop installed within an hour for $60. This gives the car a great muscle car sound but is not obnoxious and annoying. Excellent service and follow up from the vendor as well.

  Modern Day Muscle Car Sound
By on 2/3/2014
2014 Mustang GT. Adds a good deep throaty racey muscular tone to this iconic car. No drone, quiet when it needs to be and sounds mean when one gets down on the pedal when shifting through the gears. Looks and sounds better than stock axle backs.

  Sweet, but subdued
By on 4/9/2014
Recently installed gt 500 axle back exhaust ( 1.5 hr job). Great tone DURING ACCELERATION, other than that very quiet, almost to the point where you forget you have an aftermarket exhaust (especially on highway). No drone. I would have liked a LITTLE more volume, tho id rather have it be too quiet than loud and obnoxious like many other exhaust options out there. This is a classy exhaust, its not a head turner by any means. Its very liveable for those who use their stang as a DD like myself. Highly recommend for those who want an improved exhaust tone and improved look ( nicely fills up the rear valance). If you want an exhaust that you can hear a block away, look elsewhere.

  Love the new sound
By on 2/10/2014
Install was fairly easy. I dropped the entire muffler hangers after un-bolting the mufflers from the over - axle pipes. I found it much easier doing it this way since I was installing them solo. Having an O/R h pipe with stock mufflers sounds good but is very raspy and quiet. However once you pair the O/R h pipe with these axle backs, car sounds more throaty. It is the perfect mix between loud when you want it and quiet when you want it. No drone whatsoever. Turns heads in a good way.

Shipped fast, packaged nicely, Authoritive sounding under acceleration, no drone at cruising, 4 inch tips fit the valance perfectly. Does not sound like a fart machine or Bees in a can! These Muff's should of been stock on all 5.0 Liters.

Thank you Latemodel Restoration. I will return in 1 month for your BOSS Manifold!

  Sound Level Comparison
By on 7/14/2014
Installed on an otherwise stock 2014 GT. Consistent with other reviews, these mufflers added a deeper, more muscular sound without being obnoxious. They will provide a little pop/crackle when downshifting (in the 5k to 2.5k RPM range), but no rasp and absolutely no interior drone. I used a sound level meter located about five feet behind the vehicle to compare sound levels of the stock versus GT500 mufflers. At warm idle, stock = 70 dB, GT500 = 87. At 2k RPM, stock = 80 dB, GT500 = 95 dB. At 4k RPM, stock = 85 dB, GT500 = 101 dB. That is an average of 16 dB increase across the range, which is significant! For reference, running with no mufflers, the sound level at 4k RPM was 103 dB. Bought these from LMR during the July 4th sale for $280 with two-day free shipping (I am in TX). Amazing mufflers at an amazing deal. Only minor complaint is that although the 4" diameter tip is nice (compared to the stock 3"), I wish the tip was rolled with a nicer finish.

Afer listening to several axle back exhaust, this is a no brainer. If you want your Mustang to sound and look like a modern day muscle car (which it is) BUY THESE. Quality, Sound and looks, What else can you ask for. A bargain at $319.00.

  Ford GT500 Mufflers
By on 3/11/2014
I was concerned before I considered ordering for the first time.
I was impressed and shocked at the level of concern with my purchase.
Since my new 2014 Mustang 5.0 GT exhaust sounded horrible upon purchase, I knew I would be replacing it soon. I found this company on the Web, and VERY glad I did. In my years of dealing with online purchasing, I have never been offered a personal agent to answer any questions or concerns before.
I will be a future customer for ever! The Ford HP GT 500 replacement mufflers fit perfect, and sounded exactly as described!! These are the mufflers that should be standard on the 6sp manual trans cars!

  Sounds and looks great
By on 3/31/2014
I bought a race red 2014 Mustang 5.0 GT last year. I love the car, everything is great on it, but I thought that the exhaust sounded weak. For a factory exhaust, it sounds good. I wanted deeper, more throatier sound, and by listening to various clips, I decided to buy the GT500 axle back exhaust. Listening to the great rumble made this an easy buy, the price made it even better. LRS did a great job with the shipping and I did get it on time, would definitely buy more from them again in the future.

I got these around Christmas and have been waiting for 3 months to gets these baby's on. The sound is perfect!! I was wondering why the factory exhaust was so limp. My 5.0 is alive!! This has the perfect throat and brings my 2011 GT CS to life. My son came in the garage with the biggest grin on his face. I'm still grinning!!! At $300 the best deal around.

These GT500 axle backs are truly awesome. Fit is excellent. The idle sound is deep and rumbly. The acceleration lets you know it has power and the cruise tells you nothing. Just as quiet as the stock axle backs with ZERO drone. The best axle backs I have ever owned including Borlas, etc.

By on 7/28/2014
I hope you guys will not buy these . Because then your Mustang might sound as good as mine. I have had mine on the car for two weeks and I have already had two guys follow me somewhere to find out what I am running. When I tell them they are surprised because they have way more expense set up and they are unhappy. Thats why they followed me right. Then when I tell them the wife is even happy at 80 going down the highway they are like now way. Yep can't even hear them over the AC blower at high speed. But when the foot gets put into the pedal the smile will follow. This is an awesome product all the way around.

The gt500 axlebacks produce a great muscular throaty tone with absolutely zero drone. This is my third mustang and I've installed gt500 mufflers on all three. I've tried other aftermarket mufflers and these are the ONLY ones that sound great around town but are quiet at cruising speeds. On the highway they sound like the stock mufflers at constant velocity. I have them installed currently on a 2014 GT as well as a 2007 V6 and get the same result on both. GT obviously sounds better, but was a worthwhile upgrade for the six as well.

  What a 5.0 should sound like
By on 7/1/2014
I was looking for a performance exhaust for my 2014 GT that wasn't too loud but would give me that throaty, musclecar note and after investigating a number of different exhausts, I decided on this one. Very happy with the results, not too obnoxious but rumbles enough that you know it's there and no annoying drone like the other reviews state....this is the exhaust that Ford should have put on all GT's. Had my local Midas install it for $55, only took a half hour as a straight bolt on without any issues.

  2013 GT With Ford Racing GT500 Axle-Back Exhaust Kit (11-14) GT
By on 7/31/2014
I installed Ford Racing GT500 Axle-Back Exhaust Kit (11-14) GT and am very pleased with my choice. The exhaust note is throatier and deeper than the stock axle backs. I hesitated with my decision due to the concern that this wouldn't be a noticeable sound upgrade, but that proved to be wrong. These are the perfect balance of sound and LMR has them for a bargain price. You can't go wrong with these axle backs!

Factory fit and easy install. Just backed up onto my ramps, unbolted the old mufflers, disconnected the mid-pipe, and they slide right off. Just make sure to spray the rubber mounts with some soapy liquid.
After having these on my car a few months, they still sound great. Maybe even a little better after they broke in for a few weeks. Not too loud, but you can definitely hear it when you stomp on the gas.
