Sounds good...

OK, How about the drone from 2k to 3k compared to the orig. system ?

Really didn't notice it drone... I would say overall it's a quieter system with a very noticeable improvement in that 2000 RPM heavy resonance range...

Scrming I would have to say I like the first one a lot better. But I am young and I like drone and I like loud pipes. haha I want my neighbors to hear me start it up and I want people to hear me coming. lol. I think the original system sounds a lot stronger. The second one sounds really good too but not as loud as I would like. It sounds the way the car should sound stock. PS I get my MRT 1.0 installed Wednesday! Just waiting for different tips to come in.

Thanks for the feedback!!!

Yep, Scott and I talked about this yesterday... I really shouldn't be calling things Version 1.0 and Version 2.0.... But I'm a computer geek by trade so that's how I think... LOL!

It really needs to be more like the Race version and the Street version! LOL!

So it really will be two different systems offering different sounds for different people/tastes!

Keep me posted on your install!

I installed the version 1.0 axle back on my new Camaro this morning.

Installation was a bit tricky as the instructions said 3 1/2" from muffler and it seemed like I needed 3 3/4".

Also maybe I need to scoot the end of the muffler back a bit so the tips stick out a bit further as I'm getting some black crud on the back of my bumper from the mufflers.

The sound is louder than I would have imagined at startup but settles down once it idles.

I will probably put some insulation in the back of the trunk to deaden the sound as it does get a little loud for me during acceleration.

Additionally the stock mufflers are indeed heavy. Getting rid of these ought to increase the MPG.

All in all a good buy for a good system.

Yes, based on the discussion I had with Scott yesterday, MRT will offer both versions. The more aggressive, original Scrming's Axle-Back and a more refined, but toned down version 2.0. At least that is my understanding...

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.

You won't have to wait too long for that mod.... JBAs are on the menu for mine....

Sounds like V2 has a back pressure problem in the midrange. There's a bit of a burble at about 4-5K sounds like. Bet your losing some torque there.

The sound is better as far as the 2K resonance goes. The misses should be happier.

I just did the Airaid intake on mine and the 2K vibration seemed toned down a bit. I'm hoping it will stay that way when the PCM "re-learns" the airflow.

That new one has a very powerful but very passive tone that will probably cover everyone that the simply loud exhaust wouldn't satisfy. You've got very easy to sell products there.

Does it still require the AR25's? Due to the.. crap of life, car modding needed to take a backseat till now. I love the version 1.0, but i know its not fully compatible when i drive my babies momma somewhere with one of the kids.

Version 2.0.... PERFECT. But, any power loss?

No, AR25.s.. basically the same setup but instead of the AR25s it some bigger, straight-thru muffler looking thing... LOL!

As for power loss... hmmm... no idea... I'm guessing most likely there would be some loss as compared to 1.0... Doubt I will dyno this setup... but you never know! LOL

I would have thought MRT would do some dyno time. Tuning for sound is one thing... for performance another. It's when you get both that you hear the "cha..ching" sound! hehe!

The version 1 showed good mid range gains... that's why I got it! The Airaid increased the top end for sure... butt dyno says midrange too but it's difficult to calibrate that one! LOL!

Well... thing to remember MRT has been thrashing on SEMA cars! So they have been completely tied up with that! Original plan was to do a Taurus SHO... and then at the last minute Ford asked MRT to do a Fusion too!!! So anyone that knows how crazy SEMA times, understands how busy MRT has been! LOL

I'm guessing the performance for 2.0 will be some where between stock an 1.0. I heading to the track next Saturday.... I may see if my dyno guy can get me in Saturday morning... Would give me another good baseline going forward... LOL

Is there a reason you aren't working on a cat-back with them? Is our stock exhaust good enough that just getting rid of those massive eye sores of mufflers gives the biggest gains?

I'm planning on shorty headers in the spring also.

Biggest gains per dollar is the real reason.

Well... Scott asked me to keep things under wraps until he can get all the details worked out...

That being said....

Car goes on the dyno Saturday morning. Weather permitting on the track in the afternoon.

I did do a slow drive by video... editing it now...
