Eisenmann Race with Akrapovic X-pipe

Hi,
Currently got an Esmann Race muffler and am looking to add an x-pipe.
Can any one advise what will happen?
Power?
Sound?
Mistake?

The Akrapovic X pipe has some nice resonators, as well as HFC's. They do a good job of not adding any extra drone to the Eisenman race. Im sure itll be alittle louder at WOT, but shouldnt add any additional cruising noise i wouldnt think.

Power?- YES
Sound?- YES- and i hear that with the eismann race series it gets loud and any drone you now have will be still there but louder i am assuming based on the reviews i have read here
Mistake?- that depends on what you want out of it, how loud do you want it??, what type of sound?? are you looking for more power??
i love my midpipe, it totally woke the car up and it was like a new car after i put mine on. the extra power was awesome and the sound on mine is sick i love it and i have no drone at all. so for me it was a win win to your first two questions and a def no to your third question but not all of them sound the same etc. but most midpipes put out about the same power, with the catless ones usually being the most but they all do a good job of waking the car up down low and through the midrange without taking away any top end. some complain they have a slight dip around 2500rpm but on mine i don't. mine is suppose to be up in the 7k area but i don't feel it so it must be slight

good luck on your choice and if you do want the akra one which is a top notch product the member above has a as new in box one for sale
