Default Where to buy this header??

Where can you buy the full MRT exhaust from (headerback) ? I read before and saved the info, but had a reformat about 3 months ago and lost all my info .

Any help would be nice.

thx,
-justin

Go to the MRT webpage and they have a list of MRT retailers. Contact each one and find out what kind of price they'll give you. I just ordered Borla Headers for $270 shipped, but I REALLY wanted the MRT header.

I am really pleased with the Borlas. Low price, and no waiting time. I couldn't get the MRT headers sent to me. Went the easy way.

Your best bet on finding the MRT system is to get on their site, as someone recommended.

I don't know if they have what you are looking for on the web page, but they are an authorized dealer and should be able to order whatever you want.

Justin, you told me that Lisa could get all that....

And the last time I was quoted a price for a headerback MRT system, it was around 1200...700 seems mighty low to be full headerback, not just headers.

Sweet mang! I want to know . Oh and how do you like the way it sounds? I have heard that it sounded real tin like in the top revs, even Ric3y.

Is this true?

I love the sound these make. Very loud, but very awesome sounding at the same time. I can get some audio and video tomorrow of the car if youd like.

Before ordering from Vivid, I would encourage you to read this entire thread in the Vendor reviews forum.

Thumbs up

I got an MRT header/cat for $330 (+ tax) at the local dealer - but the price has gone up since then - Aussie dollar is stronger now.

I had it mated to my Brullen quiet cat back ($58) - so in total it was about $410!

full sytems are about $7-750 now I believe.

The power gain is awesome over the stock header - mid range MUCH improved, and the top end just swings - I have hit the rev limiter in 2nd many times now in the 2 weeks I've had it on.

It is more quiet than the stock header/Brullen combo - that noise everyone likes with the borla is the sound of inefficiency! The note is a bit higher - but NOTHING like a unmuffled honda. it sounds raw and strong in the upper rpms.... but really, who cares! it makes POWER - you want sound? get a Hardly... i mean Harley - -

and don't give me any BS about mild steel - if these rot out in 10years I would be suprised (and I don't plan on having this car that long anyhow...)

good luck!
Chad

Cool thx for teh info .

I ordered some strut tops from vivid a couple of weeks ago...everything came when they said it would. I may order from them again when I get these headers b/c I did recieve good svc.

No company is perfect though...
