After staring at the system laying in my living room for a week I finally got around to having it installed this morning. I'll try to attach a before/after vid below along with some pics of the install. Everything went pretty well. The fit seems top notch and there really wasn't much to the install. I think it would've been a total ***** to do it on jack stands but who knows. It really sounds nothing like stock. I have a 2010 R/T with the auto tranny so we all know how lame the stock system is with the suitcase muffler and huge resonators.

So how does it sound...? In a word: awesome! :thumbsup:

It's significantly louder than stock and to me sounds like the car should have sounded from the factory. Very deep tone at idle and really screams when you get on it. I'm not a WOT kind of guy so I can't speak to that yet. :) On the way home from the shop I, for the first time, heard the "drone" that everyone complains about. Not surprising since this new system only has one tiny muffler and no resonators at all. It does sound kind of odd but it doesn't really bother me. That being said, I was planning to disable the MDS before I even bought the Solo system so it won't be an issue at all soon. But if drone bothers you I'd wait for Solo's upcoming system that is being designed specifically for MDS models.

This system was a total bargain at $630 (with tips!!!). That was the group discount price, mind you. Not sure if Solo is still offering that price. Even if they're not it's still worth the price.

Now, let me try to upload some pics and a vid......

A note on the vid: It seems the Solo systems demonstrate alot of "flutter" when captured on video but this is NOT the case in person. This video has tons of flutter unfortunately. My camera sucks and maybe I was too close but in person it sounds badass.

Just some info for further videos, if you keep the camera out of the direct path of the pipes it should sound much cleaner. Off to the side of the car a little should be a better representation. System sounds good though

Keep us posted on this MDS system. I believe there are quite a few of us on here ready to see and hear when this system will be ready.

Very nice system. Sounds alot like my Magnaflow comp but it looks like a much cleaner install. From what I see if I did it all over again I am thinking I would have went with this Solo.

Hi Steve,
I plain on replacing my exhaust manifold on my 5.7 with a pair of SRT shorties. How will that affect the tone of the exhaust with your setup? Will it be loader with the shorties?

Probably in the $875 range before the group buy discount:)

Probably just a tiny bit...shorties shouldn't add too much volume...it should deepen the note a bit as well...which is a good thing:)
