Any LFX guys change their exhaust yet?

Was wondering if any LFX owners swapped out their exhaust and if so what did you get and how does it sound?
I'm leaning towards the MRT V2.0 but haven't heard any sound clips from anybody with a LFX engine. Just curious to see if it sounds any different from a LLT engine

I really haven't thought about it yet as I have had my 2LS for just little over a month. I love the intake sound when you get on it and I think that has distracted me from any exhaust issues.

I seen one LFX owner install the MRT exhaust. Can't remember if the V1 or V2, but he had also posted a video clip! Do a search it's somewhere in this section!

Matter fact here I found it

They will sound the same as the LLT. MRT v2 sounds great you won't be disappointed. If you're ready to order we can hook you up with a Camaro5 discount.

Is the LFX on the 2012's only, or late 2011's also?

We both are sporting '12s with CAIs intakes and MRT exhaust and I think both of us are really happy at least I am.

Solo. Everything else sounds like ricer to me. Best mod I have made so far. Now it sounds like a Camaro should. It turns heads when I get on it.

I had the dealer install the MRT 2.0 about 2 weeks ago and it sounds great. I can talk on the phone without issue but know when I hit the gas.

I installed the corsa sport catback, with 4'' polished stainless steel tips..looks nice and sounds even better. It is quite idle and wakes up when you hit the gas.

I have the Corsa system. It is almost as quiet as stock but when you lay into it she starts talking to you. Not obnoxious yet "exotic".

so whats the differences between the MRT v1 and v2? Not familiar with the brand at all. Does it replace the convertors too? Think Hi flow conv. would be a must. Lastly, if anyone has done convertors back, did u have to have a tune done?

Both MRTs are axle-back systems. Basically just mufflers and the tips. The MRT v1 is a lot louder, like a glass pack, where v2 is quieter at idle, but still has a nice note at WOT. Hope that helps.
