Mrt V2 cat back exhaust?, X-Pipe?

I need a little help trying to figure out what to buy. My budget is right around $650.00. I've been reading threads and watching videos for close to 2 weeks now. I don't know much about parts and what they do, but i'm learning! Should i get the mrt v2 and the x-pipe? or just the mrt v2? Also what exactly is an x-pipe recommended for?

For our V6s, the MRT V2 is the best on. I heard the sound this weekend on a LS and it was much better in person then on the videos...with headphones on. I heard if you add a intake, it just gets better. I would pass on the x-pipe, some have said it makes it sound raspy. you will not go wrong with the MRT V2. Im waiting on a response now on mine. Look in the dealer sale section, think his name is APEX chase has them going for 550 shipped.

Thanks for the mentions. The MRT v2 has some drone at interstate cruising speeds and the Magnaflow resonated x-pipe neutralizes it. It has become a very popular combination. If anyone has any questions feel free to send me a private message.

Apex will be delivering my resonated X pipe tomorrow. I will probably get the MRT exhaust from them in December. Got a little carried away with purchases over the last month and have to give it month for the next.

Very easy to do with these cars... We need a support group something like AA maybe MA (Modders Anonymous)
Btw I love my MRT V2.

The resonated x pipe eliminates the rasp. You may be thinking of a straight thru x pipe

I was thinking about this bundle too, but I'm still unsure about the x pipe since i'm not sure what the drone sounds like. If its just regular engine noise, is it really that bad? does the x-pipe do anything else outside of highway cruising speed, 55+mph

"Drone" by definition is cabin noise from your exhaust while cruising at highway speeds (pretty sure).

IIRC, Chase says it kills the drone, makes the tone a bit deeper and a bit quieter. And x-pipes flow better than h-pipes anyway.

It's the kind of thing where you should do the exhaust first, then if you don't like the drone (or rasp, if you have any) then get the x-pipe.
