Akrapovic would be the quietest of the trio.

I don't off hand, I am sure one of the Akra vendors can chime in here, but I can tell you that they are LARGE, but in a good way.

What do you want? A loud exhaust that'll drone your ears off, or a quiet titanium system?

Let us know what you're looking for in an exhaust and we can help you out.

All loud systems will drone. No question about it. The thing is that some people on this forum claim that their loud exhaust doesn't drone.

To answer your question, yes the GT drones.

It's funny cause you see which exhaust compare often, but these three ae pretty different. The Akra is TI and isn't much louder than stock, the Eisenmann and MGT are both considerablly louder and I think the Meisterschaft has drone, but I haven't been around it too much to definitively tell.

Akrapovic. Nice sound zero drone and mega weight savings and you have 4 choices of exhaust tips. A bit pricey but worth every Ben franklin!

Good question,
I want to get an exhaust system too but can't decide.
From day 1 I wanted the Eisenmann Race system. (what's the black series?)

All my friends have told me to go custom but I hate being the guinea pig.
Ive never heard anything negative or iffy about the Eisenmann to be honest.

I want a crazy but not stupid loud V8 sound!

I say go Eisenmann! I prob' will too.

Nah, just the slip on. A) Want to wait till the CEL issue is FULLY resolved and B) Funds were a bit tight to go full, and I really like the slip on, so just went that route for now. Will likely upgrade to the Full in time once CEL is totally resolved.
