Borla V8 on V6?

Hey guys. Was wondering if someone with exhaust knowledge can help me out here.

So I've been looking at Borla Exhausts -- And fell in love with them. However they only offer the S-Type for our V6's.
It's not fair that Mustang V6's get the ATAK version type of their exhaust ):.

SO to the point, Can I buy the v8 Catback and install it on my v6?
I know the pipe diameter for the v6 is 2.25" and the v8 is 2.5" but I've heard some people switch over to V8 Exhausts.

Is this possible? If so, do I just remove factory exhaust -- connect the new v8 to the Cat's and viola done? Look at Post #3.

Thanks for your guys' time and patience!
-WG

I have BORLA cat back, the pipe diameters are the same for both. Buy the V-8, they have bigger Tips, and guys like Big Tips. I bought the cat back pipes separate from the cat back, it's cheaper that way.

So you bought the axle back portion, but the V8 ATAK one? Part #11788?


What I'm asking overall is, the full cat back system -- From Catalytic Converter to the exhaust tips. I'm talking Mid Pipes - X-Pipe - and Rear Section Exhaust.

Here's an example from Borla's website. It says 2.5" Pipe Diameter. I would essentially want this whole catback installed in my V6.

You can put the V8 ATAK on a V6.

Yes the V8 version should slip right on. Your V6 has 2.5" pipes at the point a cat back system connects and from there GM put the hangers, etc... all in the same places on both cars.

However, the V6 does not sound like a V8 and I would give strong consideration to the V8 Touring cat back system made by Borla to avoid serious drone and "ricey" sound that a V8 Atak would have on our V6 cars.

Hrm didn't look at that aspect of it. The ATAK making it sound "ricey"/ drone . Hrm, I'll look into the touring, it'll probably give it a good deep tone. Thanks for the suggestion.

What do you think of the Atak for it then? Still think it'd sound "ricey"?
I was leaning towards the V8 ATAK version, just because the Mustang V6 is offered the ATAK (Not fair >:|) -- so I wanted to have the same "aggressive" tone and the only one offered was ATAK but V8.

That's why I love this Forum! So many helpful people.

You're talking the Axle back portion - into the Lower pipes right?

Thanks for the insight C.
