Sometimes I can't decide which way to park my car because I don't know which end is better looking.

I wish I had ordered mine with the NPP :(

Tbh if I had gotten the NPP I would've removed the h pipe and resonators and run the resonated x pipe and 2.5" pipes (if the stock NPP didn't have them).

Yes I would definitely recommend a resonated xpipe to use with your MRT V2

So I would be swapping out the stock h pipe with a resonated x pipe correct? What exactly will this change? Loudness? Deeper?

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.
