Deb, do you drive around in track mode? Before putting the Akrapovic on I thought the ZR1 exhaust sounded great, deeper and louder than my last 2 Z06's, which also had their exhausts replaced with Akrapovic full systems, then the Akrapovic was put on the ZR1, yes it's the same part number as the Z06's. Sounds fantastic, you got you hear it in person, sound clips do nothing for the real sound.

Yes, always track mode , my Neighbors love me. The Akra on the Z06 sounds so good, combined with the ZR has to be BA As soon as I figure out logistics I think I need to order

Let me add when you hammer it it goes bang bang bang shifting through the gears provided you have an a8 , totally different then revving in neutral . Also air temperature factors
in , colder is better . Also remember the Corsa Extreme is going to be much louder all the time (no sound management )

Does putting this on void any warranties?

I would definitely want to hear the Cosra sport and B&B fusion before pulling the trigger on the Akra setup. Just my .02

I would also be curious if the Corsa X-pipe throws a check engine light since it bypasses the secondary cats. I wouldnít be able to stand a check engine light on a brand new car, if it didnít then party on!
Wasn't impressed with the sound or the pricing of Akra either.

To each their own though. Nothing wrong with buying whatever their preference is. I personally think B & B Bullets (*without mufflers) is the most aggressive sounding exhaust on any Corvette. But that is my preference; in sound and pricing.
