AA and Akrapovic on the same car!

Who wants to see an Akrapovic X-pipe and AA signature series exhaust mated together?

I just had the Akrapovic X-pipe mounted on thursday. The vendor made special tube adapters out of Titanium to mate with my AA rear factory style system. These 2 exhausts sound amazing together. I will upload the pics soon and also make a video of the amazing combination. I have heard several Akrapovic evolution systems they just dont have the deep roaring sound of the AA sig series. But AA and Akra mated together amazing sound and raw power; especially the midrange trip digits come so so fast.

More to come i'm working on the pics.

hmmmm.....I would just stick to one entire system from one company. It may get frustrating if you start to mix & match.

I could have put the Akra slip on system at the same time. But I was curious to see how the AA sig and Akra sound together. You wanna know how they sound together; F@#$,ing amazing!!! Mix and match, whats wrong with that if you want to of the best parts on your car. I already sense people drooling over this set up.

since it's custom piping, you're not sure how much power you're actually making. it would be interesting to get your car dyno'd.

Hmmm, that's different. How about some video or sound clips. And do post a dyno run.

Sounds like it would be a great high quality system with no drone.

As long as it all works out and you're happy with the set-up, it's perfectly cool!

Very Curious about this set-up. Did you actually You Tube it or is this still in the making.

how is it custom piping?


OP...I duplicated (or tried to) the Akrapovic midpipe, minus the resonators, at an exahust shop and it seems to give out the highest pitched sound I have heard would love to see how it sounds with the AA rear section!

Now as my former teacher would say? How about some positive peer feedback?

I know this is a tough crowd to please. What do you think of the sound?

I want to make some longer videos, what do you guys have in mind?
