Im trying to work out the length for it to work between 2500 and 3500, the formula requires some wicked maths though lolI don't think it has been done but it would be very interesting to see! I've looked into it but would rather get a custom made bypass valved exhaust system
I've seen maybe one post in the past about the baffles going in someones Akra and they got the system replaced for free through Akrapovic themselves I believe (It was quite a long time ago so can't be 100% sure) I've had mine on for about 2 and half years with no issues and I bought it second hand.Hi guys, I’ve been looking at options for exhausts as I’d like to save some weight, free up some performance and have a little more noise. I’m not looking for anything too drony/loud and the exhaust which seems to tick all these boxes is the Akrapovic. I’m also looking at a custom exhaust which comes with a lifetime guarantee but the quotes I’ve received aren’t much less than the Akra. After reading through the forum I’ve come across a few posts where people had issues with the baffles going on the resonator and the rear boxes. Is this a common issue as it appears?
Thanks for any info…
The thing to remember is you only see people complain if they have problems, so how many people have NOT had problems. I’ve only had mine on just under a year but so far it’s great, quiet when you want it to be and noisy (but not stupid loud) when you want noise. It also pops and crackles like mad when it’s hot.They are spoken of very highly, after reading reports of 4 baffles going on this site it just made me wonder... one member said his mid silencer went twice and rear once, another's friend bought one and it started rattling the next day. I plan on keeping the 197 for the life of the car so a high end exhaust is something I'd consider, I'd expect it to last quite a while though. The reports of the Akrapovic being a perfect fit, civilized at low speeds and giving the highest gains without needing a remap is what makes me think it may be the best option.
