Honestly, I don't think someone can say one exhaust sounds better than another if they already have one of those installed because of course they would be biased towards their exhaust. But idk that's just me (btw I don't have the MRT v2, or v1, or any aftermarket exhaust for that matter..)

Bias may play a hand, but he had a magnaflow exhaust setup before, and he switched, so I'm thinking that says something as well.

Yeah I see your point, but the Magnaflows sound nothing like the MRT's , at least in vids they don't, they sound much quieter. But you get my point about the biased thing, or at least I think you do

How is the drone as compared to the MRT V2? I'm still deciding on a Corsa cat back, MRT V2 or this Gibson axel back. I would like to add the ARH long tubes with hi flows and a CAI so I'm still trying to decide what exhaust set up will work best with the headers while keeping the drone to a minimum or nothing at all. The Corsa cat back seems like a good choice since it supposedly has no drone so I'm thinking if I add the headers then I should have a decent set up? What do you guys think?

I haven't heard the MRT V2.0 drone in person so I can't speak for that. I can tell you however that the drone with the Gibson set up is not bad at all and If you add the CAI it sounds even better!

I can post my opinion about what sounds better, its my opinion, you're free to think whatever you want.

Bias always plays a hand. I loved my magnaflows, but glad i switched. I do really like the Gibson. Its a little bit raspier then the magnaflows, so i will be making some adjustments. I need to find another H-pipe, my wife tossed mine. :(

You're right, they dont. You have to understand that the microphones built in to cameras can sometimes not be able to pick up certain frequencies, so even the most minor difference in a note, can mean BIG difference in the audio in a video clip.

Alright whenever is cool . SEMA must have been fun .

Yea Corsa doesn't sound that great in any of the videos (IMO) how was it at idle? Pretty quiet, or was it loud (as in louder than stock).

I would say.. sounds like a V8, with a mild conservative exhaust system, it was deep and throaty, and not overly loud.. but louder than stock.

True statement. However, Demon Hunters exhaust sounds very close to it, maybe even a little better, at more then half the price. The biggest difference is that you wont see any gains in HP/TQ with an axleback, and with a full cat back you will atleast see some gains, even if its only a couple.

I think the difference is definitely the H-pipe. It gives you more of a rumble and makes it louder. I've been reading, and I'm not really sure there's much of a difference in performance switching to a x-pipe, but for sound the H is definitely the way to go. Just my $.02....

I have a 4 day weekend, care to meet up and make some new vids??

As for performance, the x-pipe will help the flow of exhaust, make it leave the car faster.. usually yields some gains. Also, it improved my MPG's about 4-5 on average. Varies with each car though.

4-5? Man thats great! With all I have done I think I got jack and squat! At least in town anyway. Yeah x pulls for low to mid range torque and maybe some top end but on these cars any gain is wonderful. Add that to a wopping 3-4 with a axelback and now were really talking!

I remember with the v8's we said we refered to 10 hp as gained no hp!
