New Video: ARH Longtubes paired with the MRT 2.0

Alot of you guys wanted to see and hear better video of my new system. In case you didn't know, I had the whole system swapped out for ARH Longtube Headers w/ Hi Flow Cats and non-resonated x-pipe paired with the MRT 2.0 mufflers. So now I am 2.5" inches wide througout the exhaust system.

Work was done by Barry Bodine at Draco Performance. A great shop, with professional crew.

Also big thanks to 67 GTO for standing in the mud and takin vids of the drive-bys!!!

NEW Video: Re-edited to include installation, exterior AND interior clips in one video.



Before the final version was done, there was a brief flirtation with the L99 mufflers LOL:

Haven't gone back to the dyno yet. I hope to soon. As for CEL, I drove for a 100 miles or so and never got one. I did get the trifecta tune anyway for the tranny and iron out the engine.

But the Butt dyno loves it .

Nice presentation of your exhaust and this camera man is impressed. Although Blade's setup is very aggressive when stepping on it, when cruising along it wasn't overbearing at all. It seemed like Blade could dial it up when he wanted. Even my GMPP exhaust has a little drone at some points, but nothing that's annoying and I can say the same for his.

Very cool setup. Go PHILLIES!

Yea Barry Bodine did some masterful work. I mean I created a mountain out of a mole hill, when I bought the two systems, because I totally forgot about the missing section.

Funny thing is that I saw ARH's muffler system that would fit the longtubes seamlessly, and they are almost the same design as the MRTs, exterior and from what I could tell even interior.

Thanks man! Yea the drone is pretty tame, considering the volume the exhaust can put out. I think it has smoothed out considerably over the last 1200 miles and look forward to seeing what another grand will do.

Those Phils better pick it up soon, getting tired of this half assed baseball they are playin.

I have no definite numbers yet. I had to to a different dyno at the Fest, but from crunching some numbers, I approximated I went from 246 HP to 267 HP and 230 lbs of torque to 260 at the wheels. I have also added the Trifecta tune to this, so that will help the numbers too. I figured those are the numbers because that dyno at the Fest was weird. Pretty much showing people numbers about 8 and 12% lower respectively. Hopefully I can get on the Dyno soon.

Do it man, yea its a little pricey but its well worth it. If you get the setup, make sure you get 2.5" piping to pair up the MRT to the ARH system like in the video. Or you could just go with the ARH full system, I think their mufflers are almost identical to MRT's.

Yeah saw them when I went to ARH, As I live about an hou away, The MRT V2 just looks cleaner to me, plus no sound byte yet on Nicks. want it luder just not too loud. The cops in Staten island are a pain. But yours did sound sweet.

Sounds really awesome. I just wonder what this would sound like with the Flowmaster AT axle back. Personally, and this is just my opinion, it would sound a bit nicer if it was a tiny bit lower in tone. I do love the rumble sound when it's revving down.

Oh man......the rumble while inside the car is awesome. I think my cousin took video of the interior yesterday, I will try to get that up ASAP.

Kewl.......just make sure if you get the ARH longtubes to account for the missing pipe section if you also end up using the MRT axle back. You will need it pretty much from the reducers back to just before the axle.
