Loud is not the problem. She likes it when it sounds good and a bit louder- To a point. The problem lies when it's all the time. She loves the sound of my Ducati, but it stays loud with it's Termignoni exhaust and she can't handle that. She won't ride my Ducati with me that much for that reason. (Well, and the fact the back seat is the size of a postage stamp but that's another story lol.)

But that's why I'm looking hard into the GM NPP Dual Mode exhaust. Might be a little more expensive but may be worth it on my end. I'm still on the fence considering the MRT, Borla, and NPP though. I hate rasp too. I don't want it to sound like it's got rice pouring out the exhaust. Need more soundclips. What I really need is to experience them first hand and hear them in person. Then I'll truly know.

What I should be trying to say is that at cruising speed I don't think the MRT exhaust is any louder then the stock exhaust and I think the tone is different and I think it is slightly lower than stock. But that is the way I hear it and others may hear it different. The big difference is when you get on the gas it sounds 100X better then the stock exhaust that is on the car.

Nuff said!

This thread should be stickied and kept updated. It's a great info topic for those of us deciding on which exhaust system to get for our V6's.

I'm leaning towards a Dynomax, as I've got one on my 2003 Ford Ranger with the 4.0L V6 and that sounds pretty darn good. It's got a great strong sound to it and nothing unpleasant. I'd love to go with Dynomax again for my Camaro now, once I scrounge up the dough for it, that is...

But yeah, I thank the creator of this topic for doing so, and I hope it gets stickied!

I have had my mrt v2 for week now. I love it. Sole everything I start it and step on the gas. No x pipe yet wanna see the sound as it starts to resonate. Didn't tack weld either yet. Seems to be fine. Slipped a little first day the was fine. Just first initial hot cold will do that.

I have a 12' RS V6 and I am looking to put a cat back on but I was wondering why does no one have Borla? I did recently put on a CAI Injen which I like a lot!!!

Borla is a very good company, just very overpriced.... Solo and ARK are two very good companies and seem to one of the most popular for cat-backs. Just like MRT is one of the most popular companies for axle-back

Thanks for the info. I looked into ARK. I listened to some videos people put online.

The in cab video is about as close to what mine sounds like, but of course I think it sounds better in person.



I just ordered the MRT V2 and that video inside the car sounds like what I am hoping for. Since I have a convertible I wonder how it will sound inside with both top up and top down. Does anyone know of any videos in a convertible?

Can someone please confirm that the Flowmaster 817483 Axle-back System will fit my 2013 Camaro.

Flowmaster and Amazon says it won't on the site but this site says it will. Link to it from amazon

I cannot find any videos of a convertible with that exhaust, Angry Bird. I imagine it would be slightly louder inside a convertible with the top up versus the regular coupe. But I could be wrong...

I was hoping someone on here with a convertible could tell me. I guess I'll find out for myself soon. My exhaust is supposed to be delivered Tuesday.
Thanks

Anyone have any idea how much it may cost to have a muffler shop install my axel back exhaust? ( not Midas or Meineke)
