The name Mustang is synonymous with high performance and the Legato Performance engineering team is well aware of that amazing legacy. Our performance exhaust systems are designed to unleash the power and sound locked within your factory Mustang exhaust with no loss of emission regulation compliance. Our Axle-back exhaust systems reduce back pressure and allow spent exhaust gasses to exit more quickly allowing a cleaner charge of fuel and air into the engine cylinders for enhanced combustion.
Using high quality, thick wall 409 stainless steel, mandrel bent free flowing tubing and chambered muffler construction, the Legato Performance Axle back Exhaust will outlast your Mustang - our exhaust parts will not rust through - guaranteed! Topped by our signature Legato Performance 304 highly polished stainless steel, double wall tips, your Mustang will not only sound terrific, but look great. Adjustable hanger rods allow for perfect fitment to Mustang rear valance openings.
The easy to install axle back system uses the factory hanger mounts making the total time from removal of your stock system to installation of the Legato Performance Axle-back exhaust approximately a one-hour job for even the most novice enthusiast. Our kits come complete with all of the hardware you will need to install the system in your driveway, at home with simple hand tools – we are that confident of our design.
The fruits of your labor will be the sweet Legato Performance exhaust note that will be the performance payday you’re looking for. No drone, just improved performance and an exhaust note worthy of your Mustang!
With Legato Performance you get the sound of performance every time you turn the key. You could pay more with companies like Flowmaster, Magnaflow and Borla, but we deliver the best “bang for the buck” and awesome sound. Why not have the best of worlds; a high quality stainless steel exhaust, excellent muscle car tone and a few extra bucks in the your pocket?

The exhaust system did not fit the car
This system is much louder than the videos on the Legato website. Neighbor waking cold starts but a good smooth sound while accelerating. There is a drone at 1500 or so rpm while in 6th gear but i can live with it. Great product but the website videos can be misleading on the actual sound. Go to Youtube and find a few better examples.
Bought this system a little over a year ago and installed it on my 2016 Mustang GT. Fantastic sound....constantly getting comments from other members of the two clubs I belong to. They all have the high end/cost systems and I really believe mine sounds and performs better. I drive the heck out of my car (20K) since installation. I occasionally polish the tips and it looks like the day I installed it. Would highly recommend this system to anyone looking for a nice, not obnoxious sound from there GT.
The quality is pretty solid. Install was simple and everything lined right up! I did not have to adjust or bend any hangers. The sound is extremely unique. It sounds deep and mean at lower rpms and on decel. At high rpm's it SCREAMS. I have an h pipe paired with the system. I will be putting a resonated x pipe on to quiet it down a bit. Its fine for daily driving with the H pipe but for autocross it will definitely be too loud for the facility i run at. Great job legato!!! Solid product for a great price. I will definitely take some videos with the h pipe and with the resonated x pipe when i get it.
Paired this exhaust with a magnaflow resonated x pipe and the tone is deeeep. No rasp at all, and the exhaust sounds deep and menacing. Love these mufflers.
Two words DEEP & POWERFUL
Great exhaust, sounds like a Mustang should, not all raspy.With stock resonator, minimal drone, only occurs under load ~1300rpm, but not bad. Sounds GREAT, excellent price and quality.
Installed with the factory resonator in place and the sound is deep and loud. Very pleased with this product.
Great sound has some drone in 5th and 6th but overall happy with it thanks
Installed a week ago with a X-pipe. Has a great deep tone with no splat. I highly recommend it for the price!
I luv the sound, price & chrome tips look real good. What I don't care for is if you look into the chrome exhaust tips u can see the pipe that's not chrome (that looks rusty) before the chrome exhaust tips start.
2015-'17 Ford Mustang GT V8 Legato Axle Back Exhaust
I am please with the exhaust mufflers and the sound they give. Finally my '16 Mustang GT sounds like a V8. The sound is deeper and louder than factory but not so loud it effects the cabin noise level very much.
A friend who is mechanic put them on for me, I was there for moral support. It took about 90 minutes to install both with the help of a lift allowing easier access. They are easy to install, the hardest part was deciding where to cut the pipes. The instructions say 2.5 inches from the bend in the pipe and this is about where we cut. The end of the Legato pipe had to be expanded a little to allow it to slip on easier to my cars pipe.
I would recommend these to anyone who is wanting a little louder exhaust but not wanting something so loud the radio has to be cranked up.
Sounds good except for drone at 1500 rpm is deafening. I do have a x pipe installed. Fittment is good but not great, tail pipes tend to work themselves towards the center of the car making the placement of the tailpipes a lil off from center of the openings. That being said, the price cant be beat and some tweaking of the hangers will probably help the Fittment. Ass far as the drone goes. I deleted the sound tube in the engine bay and added a weathertech trunk liner. Hope this helps
I decided to have the system installed professionally and I'm glad I did. Needed a couple of minor tweaks to fit as designed but the installer told me it was far easier than a lot of the more expensive systems.
Sound is great. Very little drone. Would highly recommend this system to anyone. Installed on a 2016 Mustang GT...automatic.
The fit is good. It was the only hesitation I had after reviewing comments. Just some small tweaking to get the pipes perfectly lined up. After a few hundred miles they settle in and they sound great.
Great product and quality and real muscle car sound.
Had exhaust shop weld on, all into the system and install for under $500.00, Sounds and Looks Great would highly recommend to mustang owners who are looking for louder than stock but not the obnoxious droning sound that many of the most expensive axel backs offer.
I had them professionally installed and I'm glad I did since there was little issue with the fitment (I own a 2017 PP) but once installed, I could not believe how amazing the sound was! Not annoyingly loud with and no drone...a truly great exhaust that's affordable.
I'm happy with the results from the installation. The Legato gives the exhaust that extra growl that is needed for a V8, while not being overly obnoxious. Very Pleased.
Front hangers had rust on the so I sanded then and paint them .had a muffler shop install exhaust with h pipe,so total for everything including exhaust was $512.00 wow!!! The exhaust has a heavy old school rumble,people stop me and tell me its the best the ever heard.on start up it's like thunder.the exhaust is top notch,this exhaust is an excellent investment compared to the rest.Great job Legato!!!!(video is on youtube).will add more sound clips..
Love the sound my new exhaust.. I'm definitely going this get the xpipe simple to delete out my resonator... Other than that it's a great buy thanks legato it's awesome..
A few days ago, I received my Legato exhaust for my 2016 Mustang. I was going to take it to a shop with a hoist to install but the hoist was busy so I decided to do it on the floor of my garage. I am 69 years old and crawling around on the cement floor is not fun any more. It took me about 3 hrs from start to finish. Part of that time was to go and get new saw blades as mine weren't in the best condition. The exhaust went on as expected. Was more difficult on a convertible as the extra bracing had to be removed from both sides and a total of 16 large bolts had to be removed and reinstalled. The exhaust is now installed and it sounds great. Nice deep sound at idle and gets better as RPM's go up. It was exactly what I was looking for. I recommend this exhaust for anyone looking for a little more sound but not excessive with little drone (slight at around 1300 rpm in 6th gear) and a reasonable price, about half of other exhausts. Great exhaust, give them a try.
Sounds great , I already had long tube headers and it sounds awesome! That's the sound I was looking for
Was looking for deep sound without raspy, snappy, popping like Roush and so many others. This package was spot on for my 2015 gt, install was about an hour and very simple. Sound is definitely louder and deeper than stock but not anywhere close to obnoxious. Get on the throttle and you'll hear it sing loudly but daily driving throttle/speed, only slightly louder than stock. Drone when lugging and right at 1300-1400 rpm, it's gone by 1500 though... kind of like it myself quite frankly, rpms are seldom in that range though, very controllable. Substantially less weight than stock too, bonus!
Sounds amazing but very poor fitting. Had to bore out pies and heat/bend hangers to fit and look normal.
I first saw the ads on Facebook for Legato Axel back exhaust. Though I was already sold on Roush I decided to at least read about and explore the Legato exhaust. After reading the reviews, blogs, and specs on the Legato home page, then listening to the sound clips on YouTube (which by the way does not do the exhaust justice) I was intrigued. I decided to price it out - $320. And 100 day return policy. This was absolutely a no brainer, it was half the price of the Roush and actually had better reviews as far as sound quality, not to loud, but loud enough and no drone. I have had it installed for almost 2 weeks on my 2016 Mustang GT/CS. I love it, really great old school muscle car sound, no drone at crushing speeds, and it turns heads. I'm sold, well worth the money, great customer service, and top knotch quality! The fit was perfect and installation was a breeze! If your considering new exhaust I would highly recommend you give Legato a shot, you don't have anything to lose at the great price and 100 day return if you don't like it. Look no further, order it today, you'll love it!
Just had this installed and the pipes were the exact same size as the stock system so it wouldn't slide over it to clamp down. My shop had to widen the ends with a pipe bender to get it on there. Then the tips were off but I can heat up the hangers and fix that. Sound is incredible. No drone or rasp at all. 4 stars only for fitting issues which made it more costly.
I have a 2015 mustang GT with Roush axle back. I put a H pipe on in place of the factory suitcase resonator. The rasp and sheer volume under load was unbearable. Anything more than quarter throttle and above 2500 rmp.... NASCAR loud! Research tells me a chambered muffler would tone it down and help with the rasp. So Google brought me to Legato. I am so happy with this new set up, and i can sell my used Roush for what I paid for the Legato. Even with the H pipe, there is very little drone. You can hear the exhaust, but its a good sound. Finish is good and the fit is perfect.
I am a happy customer!
Excellent exhaust if you like Magnaflow and borla you'll love these and at half the cost!
It was hard for me finding an exhaust for my coyote that wasn't extremely loud and didn't have a bunch of spitting and popping. I found out about these guys on a forum. I'm glad I did. This car sounds awesome. I added an xpipe to mine to go with the mufflers, I don't think I needed to do that. The mufflers alone are awesome!!
For an entry level exhaust i was pretty impressed. Has a nice sound at idle and WOT. It does drone however but i also threw on an x pipe at the same time so im not sure if its this kit or the xpipe or the combo. Either way id buy this exhaust again. Cant go wrong for less the 400 bucks.
Installed my Legato Mufflers on my 2015 Mustang GT, fit is very nice. no tack weld needed either, just the nice clamps that came with the Mufflers. The Legato Mufflers are lighter than Stock, saving roughly 18 pounds. They are also made with quality material! 409 Stainless and 304 for the tips. 409 is still far superior to Stock aluminized steel anyday of the week. The 304 tips are just an added bonus. Note* Corrosion resistant means that the stock setup will rust first, then the latter. So no worries for at least several years unless you live on the banks of the Salton Sea!
I removed my Resonator, added a H Pipe, then installed Legato Mufflers. Initial startup was a deep growl, and loud. Acceleration thru Town Light and Moderate deep rumble, Wide Open Throttle is Bad Azz.... Cruising on Highway at 1500 to 1900 rpms has drone, enough to want ear plugs. After 100 miles of driving, the drone has subsided (hence break in). My friends think i have Headers, lol! I get thumbs up from quite a few drivers as well.
The cost was 320 dollars shipped and packaged with TLC to my front door. The competition wants more than double that amount! I highly recommend these Mufflers to any Muscle Car enthusiasts for Price, Quality and Fitment Thank you Legato Performance!
First, and most importantly, this exhaust sounds absolutely awesome! Second, the installation is a breeze with the small exception of getting the hanger retainers on (I still can't get them on). Third, it only cost me a total of $400 -- $320 for the exhaust and $80 for a used donor OEM exhaust.
Startup gives you a bark like nothing you've heard, and immediately gets your adrenaline flowing. After that, it is a sweet, deep rumble all the way with a minor exception. That minor exception happens at 1400 rpm +/-50 when you are under somewhat heavy load (lugging it). There you will get a borderline drone -- it's not quite drone but you get just a bit more than exhaust tone. This occurs for me mostly at about 52-55 mph and ~27-29 mph going up medium inclines when the automatic transmission doesn't quite need to downshift. Everywhere else, the sound is fantastic. When you're just cruising along you get a rumble that reminds you that you have a Mustang and not some simple run-of-the-mill daily commuter. Better yet, my mpg went up immediately, and I'm now averaging about 25.5 mpg versus the 24.8 with the stock exhaust. Comments I've received include: "what an awesome old school sound that has!", "man, those tips set the car off", "that gets my heart going and makes me want to go buy a Mustang".
I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a medium aggressive tone that won't quite wake up the neighbors but does remind you and everyone around that you have a Mustang with the venerable Coyote 5.0.
They just don't sell you a system and then you
don't hear from them anymore they want to get.feedback from you .
I bought this axleback recently and got it installed. I love the sound, especially at start-up and idle, has a really nice deep old school muscle car sound, and have received a number of compliments about it. However, I do want to point out that it drones inside the cabin when you're in 6th gear between 1300 - 1700 RPM. Now you might think, as I did, how often you'd find yourself in that rev range in that gear, but it happens quite frequently if you're cruising in the city. Other than this small niggle, I love the sound from the exhausts and would definitely recommend them to anyone considering an axle back system.
Perfect fit, quick easy install and sounds absolutely Mustang!
Endless complements about the sound of the legato axle back, probably the most slept on exhaust for the mustang GT, and you can't beat the price
I feel that it has lost some power at the midrange. I can't just drive at 60mph in 6th as I did.
Amazing sound and not very loud
The sound is incredible!
Good system. Great value.
Nice and original sound , i recommend this system
I had this installed with a stainless h-pipe, and the axel back fit perfectly to it. Great construction of the kit and super fast shipping. It turns heads and sounds great. Only complaint I have is there's a drone at about 1500rpm. It's pretty loud in third gear, but quiets down after shifting through. Highway speeds it has a nice low rumble, step on the gas it wakes right up. Wide open it screams.
Fit and finish could be better. Tips didn't line up very good and more of a angle on end of tips would look better. Happy with sound.
Great exhaust for half the cost! Perfect fit, install on a lift with two of us was 40 minutes. Sound is truly amazing inside and out. A real head turner. I will recommend Legato to everyone.
This isn't a BS, this axle back exhaust is priced right but the sound is why you want it. Deep base and throaty is a best way I can describe how it sound. Has some drone on acceleration in 6th gear at 1.5k rpm. On deceleration it literally breakes people's necks, it just sound so good. Slight fitment issues but nothing you can't fix in your own garage. Still deserves 5 stars, Recommended!!
Wow, the legato axle back might be the most slept on exhaust for the 2015 and up mustang gt. The sound is amazing , talk about bang for buck, A must have, don't sleep on this axle back.
Installed my 2015-16 Mustang GT 5.0 V8 axle back exhaust system. LOVE IT. Top quality in assembly, fit and finish, easy install and GREAT sound. Outstanding Product, thanks Legato.
Excellent fit. Sounds great. And saved me some big bucks. Better than my old flow master exhaust for 300 less.
I am so lucky I ran across your add on FaceBook. This exhaust sounds just as good as any of the other axle back systems I listened too on the net. I installed it in my garage with the car up on ramps. The instructions were good. I know there were questions on where to make the cuts but the instructions were spot on for my 16 Mustang GT. They were delivered on time with no damage. Finally, the price was a lot less than the other exhaust system. Thanks guys she rumbles the way she should.
excellent fit and finish. great sound. fantastic price. would highly recommend them.
https://goo.gl/photos/TXZeh7CvC21aYkxY8 This exhaust is the nicest exhaust on the market for the price... I have an x pipe with the exhaust n it is loud not mild. Looks great sounds awesome. So if you want people to hear you coming this is your exhaust. I didn't run it with resonator on. So I can't comment on how it would sound. Thanks legato great product
If anyone is worried about the sound of this exhaust, or for that matter the sound with a resonator delete, don't worry, seriously, quit thinking and purchase this!!!!! The rumble of the exhaust note at idle is intoxicating. My car has an x pipe resonator delete, and I didn't hesitate too install this exhaust. I needed something that wouldn't piss off the neighbors, yet still sounded like a force too be reckoned with. And I got exactly that!!!!! Videos coming soon!!!! Don't think!!!! Just buy!!!!
Just got my Legato axle-backs installed 3/14. The sound is great. It has more of an old school sound, which is what I wanted. Cruising down the road @ 65 has no exhaust sound. Give it a little gas and it will wake it up. You're gonna catch yourself driving with your windows down.
Recently purchased 2016 mustang gt, great car out of the box. But felt like it was missing something.
Installed a legato axle back exhaust and the car came alive. Sounds awesome, has a perfect throaty
sound that's not too loud. Has a nice rumble at idle and terrific sound on acceleration and deceleration.
Sounds great looks good fit perfect I will definitely recommend these over flow master
I haven't heard any axlebacks this good for less than $500... until now. These axlebacks are a steal! High-quality build and cool Euro-style sound. The upper RPMS especially sing with an almost F-Type sound. Fantastic product!
