Depends on where you go, where they look, how much they care. Technically for off road use only

How much louder did the Akra get by adding the track pipes? Any drone?

More than the exhaust, I love the induction noise you captured in this vid!

I installed them at the same time, so I cannot answer this question. I can tell you that after cold start there is ZERO drone at cruising speeds. Low RPMs are a little bassy, but once you get above 2.5k the cabin noise is just like stock. Freeway cruising is completely stock sounding in the interior!

Thanks! I was surprised how loud the intake is at WOT too!

I haven't taken it to the dealer yet so I can't say. I doubt it'd be a problem.

On video , it sounds almost exactly like my setup .
Vorsteiner titanium catback, TMS test pipes and afe filter (drop in ).
I also installed all at once .
Drones just a tiny bit at above 3000rpm, if my ear is good, the drone is from just below me , not from the rear.
