Lightbulb V6 Deep Sound

Hey guys so i've had my 2010 Camaro for a year now and have left it stock, I am ready to start making some aftermarhet changes to the car now. For my first addition I want to get a custom exhaust system. Im looking for a loud deep, non raspy, non ricer sound. I was looking at the SLP Loudmouth 2 and am thinking about ordering it. Before I ordered I wanted to consult with you guys. Do you guys know of another deep sounding exhaust system for the v6? and what do you guys think about the SLP Loudmouth 2? I was also looking at the MRT version 2 but it seemed kind of quiet. Help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Currently in your same position. From hearing others it seems like MRT is the way to go. 2.0 isn't as loud as 1.0 so I'm definitely going with the 1.0

yup was just listening to videos of the mrt v1.0 and really like it actually. After reading through the forums i guess the loudmouth 2 is kind of raspy. Some guys said his friends call his camaro the honda camaro lol this is what i dont want. Leaning towards the mrt 1.0 right now. Its cheaper too! But just hope its as deep as the 2.0

V6s are inherently raspy. It is basically impossible to make a V6 loud without increasing the amount of rasp also. All aftermarket exhaust are going to have some rasp to them. The ones with the least amount of rasp are also going to be the quietest ones... Loud, deep and no rasp, just really aren't going to happen on a V6... it's just the nature (physics) of this type of engine...

All that being said... Yes, MRT Ver. 1 is loud. Yes, it has rasp. However it does not have the typical "ricer" sound. The sound is frequently described as "exotic"!

Thanks a ton for all the advice and I agree with you that it will never sound like a true v8, but I would love to get to as close to it as possible. Im currently watching SLP loudmouth 2 videos and the MRT Videos and having such a hard time choosing between the two! Everyone says the MRT ver.1 sounds the best but from the videos i've been watching i kind of prefer the loudmouth sound. But i bet it sounds much better when actually heard. I need advice on which one I should choose.

The best advice is to hear them in person...videos of these exhausts just don't cut it...I heard the MRT 2.0 in person and I was sold! I should be ordering them tomorrow lol

Never get close to a V8 sound, just a deep low growling V6 sound is the best you'll do. What I have with all in the sig is deep and with the mrtv2 growl but is also deepened but smooth in tone due to the res x pipe. It sounds great and no rasp, just a bit less growling because of the x pipe, and at high rpms less of the v6 highs and deeper in tone a little.

That sounds awesome.





Gotta say MRT v2 ftw though. That video has me thinking of a resonator delete with DT headers though... if only I had an infinite supply of money.

The ARK N-II doesn't have rasp at all. I need to re-shoot, but the crackles in the audio are due to me being too close and it overwhelming the mic.

Since I installed mine last weekend (the MRT 1.0's), it's like driving the car for the first time all over again. It sounds great, and simply makes the car so much more fun to drive. It probably does increase my MPG, but I tend to drive a little harder now so that whole idea probably backfired. Seriously though, they look and sound great on the car.

Thats sickk dude I cant wait for them to come in next week. I was kind of rethinking if I should have gotten the ver 2 but I think I made the right choice. Have you noticed any type of power gains after installing them?

V-6 Exhaust

I had SLP Powerflow installed and its Bitch'n along with JBA shorty Headers, best decision I ever made. People who hear it cant believe that its not a V-8 under the hood.

Did you just have the 1.0 on and not a air intake or any of that?

MRT V1 and get the SS mid pipes, so you'll open the system up to 2.5" Check out the links in my sig to see what mine sound like, although I do have LT headers.

My vote is for the full solo exhaust with the j-tubes. It's what I have and sounds very deep with no drone at 1800-2300 with very little rasp.

Going solo gets rid of all the trash cans in the rear end. The sound is great ! I have had two, one on the coupe then one on my vert ! its not a V8 sound but its the most aggressive you will find. The sound is like you hear on F1. Why ? because those are V6's !

MRT v1 is your best option if you want loud. V1 and V2 are almost identical at the WOT, difference is v1 will give you rumble at idle but v2 will not.

Its simple.
V1 if you wanna be heard all the time
V2 if you wanna be heard only when you gun it.

No prob, after seeing your vid I saw the true potential of the MRT v1 with headers but since I need a quieter version to "sneak" around Ima go MRT v2 lol
