I just ordered an MBRP cat back for a 02 ZX3 and then today someone told me that they heard this system likes to crack by the welds. Has anyone else heard or experienced this, I was told this at a shop that wants to sell me Powertone so I wanna be sure I am getting good information. The other question is for owners of MBRP exhaust, does this system fit good and how is the quality. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the info. I only heard that system on their website and I loved it. Cant wait to install it. I ordered it from McNews on sunday so I am hoping to see it before the weekend. I thought that since they would give a 5 year warranty that the exhaust system would be as great as it is advertised. Thanks again.

Yeah that exhaust was my second choice, but when it came down to sound the bosal was better, and that slip joint on the MBRP just screams cheap exhuast. I only by exhuasts that have all flanges.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Not really, i wish i would have gotten the apexi world sport or focus sport. I dont hate the bosal, but its just not anything out of the ordinary. And niether is the MBRP. The MBRP is $320 for a stainless catback...there are going to be cut corners here and there...

Ruggedman, I've been in the MBRP shop they do not cut corners.. and they don't even build a kit for my car.. it's cheap becuse he's converting from Canaidan to US and that's the advantage of building in Canada when selling to the US. Also your not seeing a huge markup like other stainless systems makers. ( I make stainless headers so I know just how much it does cost..)

MBRP is the right way to go, i've had mine for since june and have nothing but compliments, even though i have a race header it is kinda loud, but it still sounds soo nice, it was good enough to convice one of the other jetters in my area to get mbrp too, hope you enjpy it

I just wanna thank everyone again for their input. I got the system istalled now and it sounds awesome, even better than my Borla. Very simple install, only took me half an hour(thanks to having a shop to work in with a hoist) I dont have a header on this car and it is still darn loud, next mod may just be a shorty header.
Thanks again.
