Akrapovic EVO mods - louder?

Anyone here played with or listened to different mid-pipes on an Akra system?

I currently have the full EVO with high flow cats on a SC'd E92 M3 and have enjoyed the drone free system - but it's been 2 years and I want to play with something louder.

Any recommendations on a mid-section exhaust that would sound good with Akra cans?

Might even consider a trade + Cash for the full evo if someone out there wants a drone-free titanium setup.

Thanks for any ideas and suggestions.

Let me know if you get a different X-Pipe, I'd buy the Akra X-Pipe from you.

GT4 seems impossible to get. I'm not plunking down another 4k....

I wonder if the dinan would sound better with different cans.
I'm gonna have to go see what I can find for sound clips. Maybe I'll sell the Evo and replace both!

thanks for the input.

I have the Akra mufflers with the Active Autowerke HFC x-pipe and it sounds mean! No drone and louder than the full Evo my buddy has.

IMO you need to switch the rear section. I am fully catless with akra rear section and it sounds ok.. I am about to switch it out.

Keep the Evo mid section and couple with Eisenmann race?
