Sounds terrible. Heard a couple in person, followed a couple in my car...it makes me want to stab myself in the ear.

Just my opinion.

I'm running this system on my car. Has a good sound to it and no drone on the highway. Does have a throaty side at lower RPMs. However, if you are looking for loud, this won't be your ticket, either. It's a good middle of the road exhaust that has more growl than stock but won't drive you nuts in a daily driver.

If I just fall into a bucket of money, I want to order a Corsa system for my car, but it's running $1150 right now.

You can price match the Dynomax down to about $336 shipped.

MRT V1 is a loud system. MRT V2 is a little more tame but sounds great as well.

I have straight pipes. They sound amazing. Do it. I've never head anybody in person tell me it sounds awful. Everyone tells me my car sounds amazing. No drone either.

I've never looked back from the day I've done it.

mrt 2.0 is the most popular axle back on the forum. and there is no best exhaust on the market and if there was it definately would not be an axle back system. oh and 90% of people will tell you that streight pipes sounds horrible the other 10% are the ones that are running streight pipes

Interesting and sounds convincing!

Do you have a video of you running with straight pipes by any chance?

Yeah im debating whether going straight pipes or mrt v2,
i know mrt v2 is a great product, i just dislike how everyone runs them,i understand everyone has them because they are great, but i want to sound differently but ofcourse not obnoxiously loud either lol,

would a resonated x pipe help if i go along with straight pipes?

Nice ride btw!!

If you do decide to go with strait pipe, I would at the very least add the Magnaflow resonated X. Personally I don't care for the sound of strait pipe on the V6, but the Resonated X will help a lot.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler

You can 'tube muffler deletes on v6 Camaros. I was thinking about it myself until I listened to the vids. Now i'm planning on Dynomax bullets or customizing the factory mufflers.

Its my understanding that if you go x pipe you can lose the resonators.

Yes we offer them. We have them in stock and guaranteed lowest prices too.

You don't have to remove the resonators when installing the X pipe, nor would I recommend doing so with the muffler delete. The X coupled with the stock resonators should actually sound fairly decent.

Looking forward to talking with you soon!

Best regards,

Tyler

If you want more loud than middle of the road, and if you are going to do a muffer delete, then you must at least add in the magnaflow resonated 'X' pipe (really a muffler).

I'd even recommend adding in some type of bullet type mufflers....like the dynomax bullets to really round it out.

It's not straight pipe. Theres a thread on how it came about. Its actually resonators in place of the OE mufflers so next to straight pipe its prolly the next loudest thing. And sorry no video IDK how to post them .

Should have mentioned that you needed tips when you ordered the Resonated X yesterday and we could have saved on shipping!

Magnaflow Part # 35136 is a good option and they are pretty affordable.



Feel free to call, PM or email me with questions or pricing.
