Meisterschaft GT2 + X-pipe Pairings

Hey guys. Currently running the Meisterschaft GT2 on the stock X. Hitting the fork in the road regarding X pipe decision, where I want to capitalize on the gains of a catless system, but avoid an overbearing rasp sound at WTO.

Contemplating the Gintani Quad Resonated system and the Dinan X, but want to know if anyone out there has had success in a good pairing with the GT2, before I pull the trigger on one.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

It will be beyond stupid loud. I ran it for 3 days and couldn't stand it. All of the uniqueness of the GT2 went out of the window so I went back to stock X-pipe.

There has to be something out there that isn't completely overkill.. Which X were you running on your set-up?
Not too concerned with being louder here, so long as we're not talking an echo range of 3 miles for the downshift blip lol. The change in tone is my biggest concern though.
Always been curious as to how the Akra mid paired with the GT2 would sound.

I ran the AA HFC's with a set of resonators as well. It changed the tone of it entirely when WOT. It sounds very similar under 2500 RPM, but once you get on it it turns into a loud mess.

Yeah, I'd love to hear it! Always hard to gauge the true sound in video, but definitely look forward to watching -
