That is a very subjective question. Many people like the V 2.0 as-is, but many prefer it with the Resonated X pipe, as do I.

That is correct. It will quiet down the exhaust, reduce drone and rasp and give you a deeper tone.

Some people like it quieter than others, so I suggest installing the axleback, driving around with it for a few weeks and then decide if you want to go with the resonated X.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

I've had the mrt v2 for a while now. I don't mind the drone too much. I was hoping the x pipe would make it deeper and louder!

I am looking for the same thing. I am debating doing adding a true X pipe and leaving the stock resonators in the car.

Yup! It sounds great and it's easy to put on after you remove the mufflers!

I have Dynomax VT and they sound great. Quiet when you back off but nice growl when you accelerate. No drone as advertised. Been on 2 years no issues.

Bought the x pipe from apexspeed.com for about $100. I replaced the h pipe, cut off the mufflers, installed the quad tip diffuser, and installed quad tips.

A regular x pipe will add rasp. If you use the magnaflow resonated x pipe it will reduce the rasp and drone

MRT V2 and I love them, definitely worth it for the sound.

I have also added the Solo high flow catalytic converters and even though it made it sound a little more aggressive I can't say they are worth it for the price. If I had to do it again I wouldn't waste the money. JMO.

FlowMaster Super 40's: http://youtu.be/-6a_O63JaAA

Super 40's with Magnaflow resonated Xpipe, sorry about the camera shaking , the exhaust made that happen from about 8 feet away .

BTW .. Don't shoot exhaust tone videos while the car is in a garage , its not an accurate representation because of the echo created by the enclosed area.

Dynomax ultraflow, love them. I don't even notice the drone. Paid $200 used. I think they are 350 new.

Here's a video. Not mine though

Did you ever run with just the mrt before putting on the x pipe ?

mbowen- No, I did it all at once. Thats better to do because the exhaust shifts inward in the back because the x-pipe is not a direct fit. Its a tad raspy, but nothing like a Honda and I love how it sounds.

I don't know why but this thread got a lot of attention lol. i would like to thank every one for their replies and opinions on exhaust & etc. i can see now that there are many different elements to consider, with just as many different outcomes. Still not sure what to get though hahaha.

I think just about anything sound's better than stock. I didn't want to spend 600+ on exhaust, especial with car being a few months old, so I just replaced mufflers with FlowMaster 10 series. I even kept stock tips (will change w/ black one's soon) total cost was $240 including installation. With the extra $300 I saved I bought K&N cai. Sound's great, do get quite a bit drone but it's better than the stock radio. Never DYNO'd so I don't know if I lost anything, but it doesn't feel like I did. Sound's & feels quicker. Anyone think this was bad idea? I'm budget conscious.

If you are happy with what you did then it wasn't a bad idea....

Love the MRT 2.0. Paid $525, picked it up myself at the shop. Look great, sound good from the inside and just as well from behind. I'd buy the same set-up again.
308 Stainless will last forever.

ARK DT-S expensive but so worth it. You can order tips burnt or polished-ppl don't know that for some reason. All mirror polished 304 SS. They sound amazing-no drone-no j-pipes-just awesome.

Just put on the MRT V2 and I like it a lot. Drones not that bad, usually have music up anyway.
