Glad you're enjoying it. The Evo is about as mellow as it gets for a full exhaust. Very bassy (not drone) that is more obvious in enclosed spaces like a garage. Personally, I have the most fun goosing it going through garages and tunnels, otherwise you don't get to hear all the goods.

I heard the ESS system as well and it sounds awesome. I might have to switch it up soon.

Double check the install too just in case, a leak or something loose can amplify drone and cause the exhaust to be louder than it should.

Install looked good, I had the car up today. I'll see if this will grow on me.

Let me first say that I have had 9 exhaust combinations on my car in 18 months.

It's not the x-pipe that is the problem, it's the axleback. The Akra system is quiet but you are right, the bassy note down low can be disturbing. Not to mention, a short resonator isn't going to cancel out those long wavelengths. AND, you won't find titanium resonators or someone to weld them.

I had this problem with the two Gintani axlebacks (sport and hybrid) I had. Volume-wise, they were very similar to my Dinan through the rev range, very reasonable. Except down low. The Gintani exhausts both had a very bassy sound down low. They were disturbingly loud cruising through parking lots but very mellow at high revs (4K+). My Dinan gets louder as the revs increase, as it should, with no bassy note down low.

My suggestion to you is to (at least) get a different axleback. That's a pain since you need adapters to run the Akra x-pipe with a different axleback.

OP, do you have a tune to delete the start up cycle? It's WAY better with the start up cycle deleted.
