Mrt v2

So I am about to pull the trigger on this but had a few questions...

1. Is this something a guy with limited mechanic type knowledge could do?

2. It's my understanding you cut off existing pipe and tips and this is replaced?

3. If you have it, any comments or concerns?

1. As long as you can measure and cut...you're good to go
2. I think its was 2.5 inches behind factory mufflers, the whole muffler comes out, which includes the tips.
3. Love it, at first my wife was giving me dirty looks because of the 1800 rpm range drone, but since it has toned down and sounds AWESOME when you romp on it!!!

Have fun!!!

you cut the pipe 3" BEFORE the mufflers,spray soe wd-40 on the rubber hangers & the old mufflers will come out pretty easy(slide hangers off) tips are already on the MRT2 good choice BTW,make sure to tighten the snot out of the band clamps,easy job,half-hour to 45 mins tops

Sounds about right. Most good systems start around $500.00

The MRT v2 works great for our LFX cars. I would recommend you add the Magnflow X pipe if it's a DD. Eliminates the popping noise for the exhaust.

I got mine for $99.

Easy install as well....

You can always take the parts down to a local muffler shop and for about $50-$80 they should install all the parts for you.

I have them and I love them. I did it myself and it is fairly easy. I believe in the saying measure twice cut once. Once cut you pull the muffler off just watch where you have your hands placed as the stock mufflers are heavy, I had my hand in the wrong spot when I pulled the muffler out of the hanger, well lets just say it hurt a little when it hit the floor when my hand was under it. I even did mine with a hacksaw since I couldn't get my hands on a Saws-all, I would recommend the power tools. Clean up the burrs off the pipe and the new mufflers just slide over the pipes and clamp on. As much as I tightened the snot out of them the passenger side would slip a little. I got tired of fiddling with it trying to get it to stay put and after 8 months I drove it to a muffler shop and had them weld them both on since I don't ever plan on taking them off, problem solved.

I'm ready to buy mine as well, along with CAI and the Magnaflow X pipe. Apex has a great bundle price op.

Only thing I'm concerned with is can you still drive the car quietly when wanted? It's also my DD and love romping on it most of the time but I also enjoy a quiet drive at times. Is that possible once the MRT V2 and CAI are installed?

Yes you can. It is slightly louder at cruising at 60 MPH, with auto trans it runs at 1500 to 1600 RPM's at this speed and for me the radio is plenty loud on an FM station at 12. About a month ago I went on a road trip with my friend and I asked him what his thoughts were about the noise/drone. He said he just tones it out and doesn't notice it and I do the same. Keep in mind you put on a louder exhaust it is going to be louder in the car whether it is a V6 or a V8 and it seems like the louder sound is what a lot of members here are referring to drone. All I can say is I knew it was going to be louder inside and did it anyway and it doesn't bother me. To each his own.

Here is a clip from inside the car from Morano's website. There is another one on there website from the outside on take-off and these two clips if what sold me on the V2.
