2024 Ford Mustang 2.3L Sport Active Exhaust Systems Revealed

For many years now, aftermarket exhaust systems have been one of the more popular upgrades among the owners of all different kinds of vehicles. That includes the Ford F-150, which recently gained two of them from Ford Performance itself – the Extreme rear-exit and side-exit exhaust systems. As for the all-new 2024 Ford Mustang, well, the S650 generation pony car figures to have a robust market in that regard as well, and earlier this month, Magnaflow revealed a grand total of six different exhaust systems for that model. Ford Performance followed suit last week by revealing its own pair of Extreme active cat-back exhaust systems for those that own a 2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, and now, it’s following that up with two different Sport active axle-back exhaust systems for that same model, too.

2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Sport Active Axle-Back Exhaust System Chrome

First up, we have the new 2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Sport active axle-back exhaust system with chrome tips, which is listed in the Ford Performance catalog under part number M-5230-M2SC. This new system is compatible with any 2024 Mustang EcoBoost coupe or convertible model equipped with the optional active exhaust, and features 304 stainless steel construction with 2.25-inch pipes and quad four-inch exhaust tips. The new system retains the OEM quad tip valance, diffuser, hangers, and mounts, but the factory exhaust pipe must be cut to install a clamp for the Ford Performance axle-back mufflers.

2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Sport Active Axle-Back Exhaust System Black

For those that aren’t fans of chrome, the very same 2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost active axle-back exhaust system is also available with black tips under part number M-5230-M2SB. Other than that minor difference, the two systems are exactly the same in every way. Both exhaust systems also retail for the same price – $2,175.

As previously mentioned, both of these exhaust systems are designed specifically to work with models equipped with the turbocharged 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engine – not the GT or Dark Horse – as well as those with the factory active exhaust. In that regard, Ford notes that either gives the EcoBoost pony car a sportier sound, which will undoubtedly prove appealing to some.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Interesting, if ordered with the car it’s half the price. Ford probably hopes potential buyers don’t read Car & Drivers thoughts on the 4 cylinder active exhaust. They concluded it sounded laughable.

      Form your own opinion rather than the ‘conclusion’ of a stranger’s opinion on a subjective measure?

    Call me a unevolved caveman or what ever, but I wouldn’t want to advertise that I am driving a four cylinder Mustang.

    All blow and no go.

    Instead of wasting money on an aftermarket exhaust system for a 4 cylinder car, just save up and get the V8 instead. No 4 cylinder exhaust system sounds good. Most sound like a snow or leaf blower.
