DIY "Guide": How to get the REAL Akrapovic Sound

.....just remove your center console and all sound deadening parts

I know it's hard to capture the sound.
But once you hear it you don't want anything else for the rest of your life.




here's the HD link.
Turn up the volume and enjoy!

I'm guessing the console delete is good for 5hp?

Interesting, maybe there's a way to remove deadening materials and create some ported sound vents into the cabin from the console. Won't be as loud, but you'll get an increase induction / exhaust sounds.

Well. The idea is not too bad. If you look at the BMW Z4M for example that's what they did. Route a pipe from the intake manifold into the dashboard.

In my case it was exhaust sound - but basically it's the same idea.
