M Perf With ACM Test Pipes Sick

Hay everybody i just got the M pert exhaust with the ACM test pipes, this combo is insanely good on a serious note. I had the Challenge Race plus with the M pert, but it sounded good surprisingly, but very loud for my taste. plus side is that i have the same amount of HP and T with the test pipes as a pose to the Race plus x-pipe.
anyways i have the Lime Rock Edition, i was wondering if anybody knew good mods for it???

I've had my M perf + ACM test pipes for a few weeks now. It's an awesome combo! I had the same issue with my previous setup being too loud for me. Enjoy!

EDIT: Did either of you remove the cold start? I'm thinking it would sound really good with this setup and the cold start enabled...

How much louder is the test pipes + MPE than the MPE alone under 4k rpm? Any droning that wasn't there with the stock cats? And how much more rasp is there over 4k?

I want to do it but I'm scared lol

Under 4k you almost don't even notice a difference. That's the beauty of the combo. Above 4k its slighly louder with a little rasp, but the combo sounds

Can as much power be gained with the MPE + Test Pipes + Tune vs. something like Akra Evo (primary cats removed) + Tune?

Yup. Same exact concept.

And for those thinking of doing this, Lalit told me ACM got the next batch of pipes in today. Better get them before they sell out, or you'll be waiting and drooling like me every time you hear someone else rave about them having done it!

I have this combo (test pipes with ///M Performance exhaust). I'll get up a GoPro3 video of it in action this weekend.

Yeah I definitely wouldn't call it very raspy. Has a little "rasp" at some points which sounds great IMO.

Absolutely no drone.
I have cold start removed as it was giving me some minor issues.

Seems to be the latest craze with the MPE. You guys gotta start posting some clips, talk is cheap, let's hear it...rolling, under load stuff, downshifts, etc...Good to hear nothing but positive feedback so far re: test pipes/MPE.

Mine will be installed next week, and I will be picking up a new GoPro3 black. I'll take a bunch of videos and post them up.
