mrt v2. Xpipe or not

I just bought an MRT v2 exhaust from a c5 member, now as im reading more into it it seems like allot of people are unhappy with the highway drone, should I get the v2 installed without buying anything else first and see how I like it, or should I just spend the money before they start welding away on my car and get the xpipe now?
No other current performance mods, CAI definately in the future and possibly ported tb if that makes any difference.

You won't be saving much if anything in labor costs. No sense in spending the money until you need to. Install the V2 and see what you think. If you need the resonated x-pipe, order it.

Appreciate the help, wasnt sure what exactly labor entailed so didnt know if it was something that would have to be redone if I installed the exhaust without the xpipe,
