MRT Exhausts, No Drill Hood Strut Kits and Other Accessories

MRT’s purpose is to provide automotive enthusiasts with quality, aftermarket accessories so they experience exponential fun every time they take their vehicle for a drive. We design our products for the backyard mechanic which means installing MRT parts uses common tools and step-by-step instructions with pictures to help during the installation process. The MRT engineering team personally designs, develops and tests each performance product so they are durable and made to last. Over the past 20 years, we’ve played in the automotive industry through SEMA vehicle builds, road course racing explorations, personal vehicle customization, engineering consulting services and engaging with the automotive community. Let’s take a look at the performance products resulting from these experiences.

A classic vehicle upgrade that will definitely get noticed and improve performance is to replace the stock exhaust. MRT has been designing Mustang Exhaust systems since the early days providing Pony Car owners with mid-pipes in an H-pipe configuration for better flow and Chamberflow cat back exhausts for the iconic muscle car sound. These early MRT exhaust systems were designed in T304 stainless providing better corrosion resistance than OE stock material, manufactured using mandrel bent tubes for improved performance flow and designed to give a performance sound that complements the vehicle’s DNA. This design approach forms the underlying principles for every MRT product design.

MRT resonator delete, axle back and cat back exhausts were so well received that the MRT exhaust product line grew to include many Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Toyota, Subaru and Honda cars, trucks and SUVs. We offer simple mods with big performance improvements such as the popular Charger or Ram TRX resonator delete, sport touring Explorer ST axle back and more recently we introduced mid-pipe exhaust tubes for the all-new Jeep Rubicon 392 and Honda Civic Type-R. MRT is a full-service exhaust supplier which means we make our exhaust systems in-house and we offer custom exhaust services for all makes and models.

As the MRT exhaust product offering expanded, so did our distribution network. Phastek Performance joined Team MRT 13 years ago as a distributor of MRT Camaro, Silverado and Corvette products. They like MRT products because they rarely have issues with MRT exhaust systems and MRT stands behind all products with great service. MRT exhausts are made to fit any budget and designed so the customer chooses their unique, preferred sound – Version 1 Street Race, Version 2 Sport Touring or Version 3 Extreme – with the most popular choice among Phastek 2010-2023 Camaro V6 owners is the MRT Version 2 exhaust because it gives the V6 engine in the Camaro a deeper sound matching more closely to the sound of a V8 engine.

MRT built 2 SEMA Fusions for the Ford display that caught the attention of Fusion owners and Steeda Automotive Parts who joined the Team MRT dealer network. MRT Fusion exhaust systems are a hit with Steeda customers and they love that MRT products are made in the USA. If you’re looking to customize your Fusion with a new exhaust and other performance parts, visit the Steeda website for some great options and one stop shopping. More great sources for one stop shopping, where you can find the entire MRT catalog, visit American Muscle and Extreme Terrain.

One of the most popular and most copied MRT products is the no drill hood strut kit. We designed this kit for our 2006 SEMA Mustang as a simple way to clean up the engine bay by getting rid of the engine prop rod. When the kit was installed, we loved how much easier it was to access the engine that we decided to share this invention with other product enthusiasts. The SN197 kit was launched first and we quickly extended the design to the other Mustang generations and more recently to the Ford Focus, Explorer, Bronco and Maverick. The kits are easy to install and in most cases require no vehicle modifications. MRT hood struts are the best aftermarket accessory to stop hitting your head on the prop rod and to Get your performance mods noticed.

You may be surprised to learn that MRT produces more than premium exhaust systems and rugged, heavy duty hood strut kits. Through participating in Optima Challenge and the American Iron series and understanding basic aerodynamic principles, we know that a reduction in aero forces is a must for a successful race. Team MRT got inspired and designed a few robust adjustable front splitters for Ford Mustang derivatives. These splitters will reduce drag in all driving conditions and help you put some distance between you and other drivers. Also, MRT restored a few Fox Body Mustangs and the stock fascia brackets were rusted out and needed replacing. We tried to find replacement brackets and finally decided it was easier to use our manufacturing capability to make them in-house. They worked so well, we had to share them with other Fox body enthusiasts. The replacement Mustang Fascia Hardware
contains 5 brackets, is made of durable power coated steel and directly replace the factory brackets. They are made from premium materials for endurance and longevity.

The MRT engineering team thrives on innovation and creating things to up the performance fun factor of all vehicles. Check our website for the full product offering, call us with any questions and if you’re looking for installation services, we are happy to help.
