MBRP catbacks

I am one click away from getting the mbrp catback system BUT I would really value anyones input that has the mbrp catback or axle back system. I it would be paired with a CAI and a SVE tune.

I just installed MBRP axle backs last Friday and they sounds very nice! They're not super loud. The have a nice rumble at start up and accelerating sounds good. But once you're in 6th gear cruising at 50-60 they're they're nice an quite. However I must say that I have a little bit of drone when driving at 70-80 mph. Which I thought there wouldn't be but I have a convertible so it's a little louder inside the cabin than a coupe. For the money I think they're good value and I'm very happy with them. Sticks123 has them too and I'm he'll give you his experience too.

I have MBRP catback on my sixxer and I love them.
Very nice tone, but not raspy and crackling like some more aggressive systems. Even on highway with 3.55 gears it sounds nice. I dont really hear any drone, but I havent added headers yet..
Some people ask if it's a V8 when I start it up

I've had the budget version of the MBRP AB's on my car for almost a year. I really liked them when I first installed them and like them better now that they've had a chance to break-in. Also, the tips are a bolt on item and can be customized via a number of options. I had mine powder coated gloss black. Here are some before and afters.
Before


After


I also used rattle can grill black paint to paint the mufflers pre-install. It makes a nice looking package. At least IMHO, but I am biased.

They eliminate the exposed muffler effect.

I have had them on for about a year now and there was a noticeable sound difference once they were broken in. They were a little louder but definitely for the better and they look great!

My good friend has the axle backs on his 3.7l auto and his car sounds great, no drone, but opens up and screams when you want it to.

Vinny, let us know how these work out if you get them. I've had the same hesitations. I am terrified of dropping several hundred clams and end up with a raspy minibike sound. Good luck!

IMO, just don't buy the aluminized cheap version. Spring for the stainless.

Pair these up with their ghost tune and you got a v6 that sounds like a drag car

I'm the same way, there are way more execessively loud and raspy exhaust setups on the 3.7 than balanced deep ones. Want to make sure the axleback will still sound good with headers installed.

I know Borlas sound great but just no way I'm spending that much for pretty much no performance increase. So for now picking up other bolt ons until I'm more certain.

Borla touring was my first choice ...but the price is crazy. Like the MBRP s can't wait to get the LT headers and X pipe on!
