So... MRT Exhaust Version 2.0

Well, I got a call from Scott at MRT the other day. He wanted do do a little more experimenting. I had the day off yesterday so I went down to MRT.

Scott's been in the automotive business for a very long times and knows everyone's tastes are different, especially when it comes to exhausts. So to that end, Scott wanted to offer us Camaro owners a system with a sound that was a bit more subdued... a more refined performance sound...

So with that in mind and based some of the comments and feedback, Scott wanted to try and improve on the original Scrming's Axle Back system... He wanted to come up with a setup that would cut down on the rasp, be better behaved in the 2000 RPM range, that was tame while you were cruising, yet be aggressive when you WANT IT TO BE! Think of it as a Street Performance version...

I'm going to hold off posting my opinions and thoughts so people can give it an unbiased listen... grab your head phones guys!



And for reference, here is the original Scrming's Axle-Back



I know the first thing you guys will want is some in cabin video... I didn't have time to get that yesterday so I will try to get out and do that today...

Ok.. disclaimer... this setup is still in the very early stages.... still working out the details.. I just wanted to share... LOL!


**** UPDATE 11/21/09 ****

Pricing has been set! MRT Ver 2.0 will retail for $549, however like Ver 1.0 MRT is setting an introductory price of $499!

Version 2.0 is now on the MRT website!

I like the new setup. Not as quite as "harsh" (if that's the right word) as the original version. Sounds good!

Great Job John.

It sound allot more to what I'm looking for. As long as there is no drone I'm really digging this. I was leaning towards the magnaflow or the Corsa but with the cheapest one of the two starting at almost $1,200 It's a hard pill to swallow.

What will be the price for this set up?

Sounds good! Any idea what brand the mufflers/resonators are?

Thanks, guys!

Yes, this version is "less harsh" and more "subdued"... it definitely is not as loud... With the first setup you could very easily hear my car start up from the back side of the house... with this setup you cannot...

As for pricing... Not sure... Wish I had more info on that... but I will be sure to post more info on it as it becomes available!!!

Also... editing some in-cabin video right now!

This is still an axle-back..

It's basically a resonator but to me it looked kind of like a straight-thru muffler ...

As for the rest... Scott asked me to keep it a bit more under wraps for now...

You can bet it will be WAY cheaper than Borla and Corsa plus it supports a great member of Camaro5.

I actually like both sounds ,but guess my wife would appreciate it not being heard from a house away. LOL

It would be interesting to hear a drive by without getting on the throttle so much just to hear how more normal driving sounds. It seems pretty loud in the vids except at idle. Good tone though and the rasp seems to be under control.

I really like both versions too!

I like the louder, more aggressive growl of the first version. When you rev it, it definitely has a more harsh, in your face kind of attitude... But I also like the newer version with the more refined sound! And I'm sure my wife appreciates it being noticeable quieter too!

So... it's great to have choices!

Awesome! Are you planning on swapping over permanently, or are you going to be running the original kit still?

I'm waiting to be able to hear the original kit with a set of those JBA shorties bolted on. The shorties should lower the pitch just a hair, which in my opinion is all it needs to be perfect.

Pfft. I leave for work early too. I just don't care what the neighbors think.

The other day I was cooking chicken on my indoor grill at 1 AM and I set off the fire alarm... And I live in a condo, which is only a little better than an appartment.

I live across the street from a Judge... needless to say I do care what HE thinks! And of course with the original version I would occasionally wake the wife up when I would start my car... Trust me... if Moma's not happy, nobody's happy! LOL!

Very impressive! Especially the drop in interior resonance.

I still prefer the original though.
