MRT V2 will be here tomorrow! Fast shipping Apex!

So now I'm wondering about the magnaflow x-pipe, what is the benefit I'd get from that? Better tone or some HP to boot?

Better tone; no real gains other than that.

By the way, what is an L1 (under your avatar picture).

Thanks for your order. The x-pipe will not add any power but it will change the tone and kill any drone. It is pretty popular along with the MRT v2.

Should have been 1LT, thanks for letting me know. Or maybe 1.5LT once I add the HUD and a few other things.

Ok, got the exhaust installed.
Sounds awesome on acceleration and at idle. Right now the drone is a bit much at 2k rpm but I'll give it time to mellow, it's already toned down a bit.
Have had trouble trying to get the clamps tight enough though. I'm going to have to go to a welder and get them spot welded to keep them from twisting/moving.

Glad to hear you like it. Keep us updated on what you decide to do with the x-pipe.
