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.
