The sound is perfect, not too loud, no freeway drone, nice low grumble off the start, nice loud rasp in 3rd at 6-8k, great note on the freeway when you one or two gears too high. It makes you want to drive differently and the driving experience is more pleasurable.
I can't wait to drive it today, it's been a few days as i've been down with the flu.
Carbon tipe looks bitchen too...
BTW, I installed the BMC filter and it seems to take from the exhaust experience by adding an awkward intake rasp. I will be swapping them to verify that's what it is and will report back my findings. I will tell you that the BMC was the first mod I did and I liked the added sound I got from the intake, but now I'm not so sure it compliments the exhaust system.
Thanks a bunch to Roman and the guys as ESS for everything!!!
Is this your first exhaust mod and if not what exhaust did you have prior to the Akra?
