Yes, basically it's an unbolt and put in the MRT. One thing that does seem to come up is not enough clearance between the MRT tip and bumper. The best way to fix this is to loosen up the mid-pipe and try rotating the pipe. Mine was very close to the bumper, we rotated the mid pipe and now I have plenty of clearance...

nope.. you definitley don't want to do anything to the bumper! If you run into a fitment issue, I would definitley try the mid-pipe trick... worst case some guys have bent the hangers a bit... or possible have it installed by a reputalble muffler shop...

I got the MRT last week and I'm not very happy with it. Sounds like an inport and most os all the resonance inside the car is REAL annoying

Almost all the add-ons sound better after 500-1000 miles. My Ford Racing muffler had a bit of rice sound to it at first (the higher frequency pops) and now it has calmed quite a bit and has a greater percentage of low frequency rumble.

It does take the MRT a bit to "break in"... mine changed tone multiple times over the coures of a couple thousand miles... It will get better...

As far as the resonance inside... You might want to give MRT a call and ask them about some of the resonators they've been working on... Should eliminate the resonance while keeping the performance... I heard one while I was there on Thursday.... worked quite well..

well you are gonna want to spray wd-40 on all the bolts and let them sit for a while before trying to remove the stock exhaust. I torqued them as much as i could without doing it and they didnt budge at all. I didnt have a bumper clearance problem at all once i got mine on though.
