I have had both AA Catted and Race x-pipe. Both sound great and should pair up nicely with your AA.

Had mine with the full catless exhaust/X pipe, sounds bad ass but drones specially with the DCT tranny. Switched the rear to Akra but kept the AA X pipe now, still bad ass but no drone, can't beat that.

Do you happen to have a video of it? Seems to sound like a beast, would be very interested in this set up if it sounds good

If you go to the evolve overun and backfiring thread you'll see a video I posted when I had the full AA set up. I'm on the phone app and it's a PIA to find it. I don't have a video with the Akra yet.
