Question Akrapovic GT4 x-pipe question?

Hi guys! I have full Akrapovic Evolution exhaust, but I am thinking about the GT4 x-pipe. Tell me please, would be very loud? Much louder than the Evolution system? Who uses the GT4 give me advice, with this system will resonate? Thanks!

Yes that shit is crazy loud, and the smell is harsh. Also expect a "airplane" type drone in 6-7th gear when you are cruising on the highway.

Have to disagree with this comment, loudness of an exhaust is subjective to your taste, everybody has a different taste, I have owned the evo and the GT4, for me the GT4 is the perfect system, it is very tame at low RPM, almost the same as the evo, it gets louder when you floor the gas pedal but not crazy loud but again this is my opinion based on my taste so to OP just hear some videos or if possible see it personally so you can form your own opinion

both you guys have the GT4/EVO so it's interesting to hear completely different perspectives from members who own the exact same exhaust

Perhaps more specifics would help OP even though he asked a fairly non-specific general question.
