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.
