I took off the Eisenmann Sport for the GT2 & couldn't be happier. It's a beast. The sport will probably go back on if I can find the right primary cat delete setup.

I really like the sound of the Meisterschaft, but I dont really want the "loudest". I liked the low end grunt if it.

I just don't want the sound level go too weak when around 8000 rpm

That was cool for me when I was a teenager with my Mustang, but all that really does is annoy everybody and is not really great on long drives. Not to mention, sometimes super loud sounds like shit, whereas something a little less intrusive sounds 10 times better.

Also, so many people want something that screams at 8000rpm, but I don't drive at 8000 rpm everywhere I go, I am normally below 3000rpm range when cruising around, and that is where the Akra really shines...it turns heads from quite a distance away, not because it is annoyingly loud, but because it sounds powerful and bassy at those RPM's. Perfect for driving around town.

Also, the quality of the system cannot be beat IMO...not to mention the weight savings.

In the end, I figured I paid a lot for this car, and I did a lot of research to figure out the best exhaust for the car. Sure the Akra costs more, but in the end, you get what you pay for....the sound matches the car perfectly.

If loud is what someone is looking for at a bargain, just get magnaflow from ebay. I believe its 200 a can.

Thanks for the advice. actually I kinda like a bassy and deep sound rather than a F1 sound, it's not so annoying and sounds more powerful.
