Axle back on the way!

Came across a great deal on an axle back! Just ordered a BNIB MBRP 304 SS axle back for $399 on eBay ($629.95 on their site; $509.95 was the next best price on some other sites). Delivery due by the 10th. How hard will this be to do with jack/stands only?

Spend the $30 or so dollars and get the muffler hanger pliers from O'riley's. It will save your knuckles and about an extra hour.

How are they different than the many other types of pillars out there?

After doing mine Im not sure I would say you "need" them but they could be very helpful.

^ those are them. Just a lot easier then using a screwdriver or anything else to get the hangers out of the bushing.

Nice upgrade! The install won't be too bad at all. If you take your time, it should only be an hour or so. Also, jack stands aren't even necessary for stock ride height Mustangs. Plenty of guys do the install on their backs without them!

Hope this info is helpful and you enjoy the new axleback!

They sound great! Had them put in for $90; took him about an hour. Had to cut off the clamp retainers with a cutting wheel though, so kinda glad I took it in.

Why does every one cover their plates like that? I dont get that...

Looks good. You dont need to cut off the clamps like that. Bend them back and forth a few times and they come right off.

Axle back on the way!

Sounds great! Deep growl at startup, a little reverb (drone) around 3000 rpm (expected,) light on the gurgle/popping, nice and quiet on idle, no raspiness, looks great, fantastic price, quality materials and finish... love em! Pics on post #8^

People can get A LOT of your personal information with just your license plate tag if they really want to. The internet has millions of people, so that increases your chances lol. So most people just cover it to be safe.

Back on topic, They look good, not too familiar with MBRP though.

It's much harder to get info from a license plate than it is thru simpler means. People are easy to find.

Why did you have to modify the inlet pipe?

Didn't have to... I watched the whole thing. The only modification made was cutting off the clamp retainers from the stock muffler to reuse them. Oh, and had to bend the hanger bracket a bit to get them to line up just right.

I really would have liked to do that myself. I have no flat areas to work on, though. I also considered the Borlas and Magnaflow but considering the deal I got, I'm more than happy with the MBRPs. Far as the quality, I'd say they are top notch. They use a straight through perforated pipe and it's packed with steel wool, instead of fiberglass.

A suggestion for installing axlebacks

Just use some dish washing soap on the hanger rods. They will then slip off as easy as pie. The new ones will slide on just as easy. Dishwasher soap will just go away after it dry's.

The slight Drone you have now will be less noticeable after you put a few thousand miles on your mufflers. When the mufflers get a little carbon in them they will tame done a little and sound even better.

Certainly! It was MVP Auto Parts on eBay. They had 2 at this price when I got it on Tuesday. I was going to wait and see if the item matched and all... I did an item search, (MBRP axle back) then sorted by price. The description was identical to the SS one except for the item number; said "SS Exhaust" instead of the item number (Sxxxx304) in the part description.

It was, in fact, the SS kit. I'll attempt a decent video when I get the chance. In the meantime, there is a good one on YouTube if you search "MBRP Mustang V6"
