GT4 x-pipe

Thanks to the advise of GOLFFRR I decided to switch my evo x-pipe with the GT4, bought it at IND (thanks Andrew!!), it is amazing the craftsmanship of this system and it is so light, the whole box with connecting pipes weighed barely 30 lbs, check it out

He is the man! He also helped me with my new car individual order, those guys at Steve Thomas BMW are great! What a difference with my previous purchase experience...

glad you got it!!!!

The other cool thing about the GT4 is that its all hand welded. its a piece of art! wait till your car comes in and you install it I drove my car all day today and the sound the GT4 puts out with the Akra mufflers is simply amazing!! congrats again!

PS: not sure If I told you or not, but the GT4 only has slots for two of the 4 O2 sensors. the other two will need to be zipped tied and secured up in the bottom of the car. Im sure your installer will know this but if not, thats how its done

I run the gt4 akra x pipe (with full exhaust) with ess vt2-625 and it makes a noticable difference in power.

I guess the quality of the akrapovic exhaust system is known to be above any other in the market, this specific x-pipe is hand welded not made by a machine and extremely light titanium material

Why does this x-pipe demand a premium over the unit with cats?

I'm sure it has to do something with the rarity of the piece, but I too am curious about this. How much does the GT4 go for btw?

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this mid pipe technically an H AND X pipe?
