Car's manual.
I was shifting at low RPM cuz its not broken in yet. just went over 600 miles.
The only time you hear the exhaust is between 1-2700 RPM
If you go full throttle in that RPM, the exhaust is quite loud.
above 3500 with the windows down all I hear is the turbos spooling

i really really do not care for the burns on the end of tips. if there were another option i would consider it a very good choice for exhaust. how can you make all of those presumptions about the exhaust removing "turbo lag" when you won't drive it to really experience the "lag?"

I experienced lag on this car and on a mini cooper s before.
The power is linear now and no sudden surge like it used to be.
The lag comes in lower RPM, which I experience in the break in period.

Since it's hand made I'm sure you can ask them not to burn the tips. Burnt tips are sort of the trademark for titanium exhausts.

I think he was trying to say that... how can you fully review an exhaust on a car that's not fully broken in yet.. ie. he can't take it to redline and etc...

And don't forget offering to give heartstopping rides at part throttle all the way to 3000 rpm.

It says in his first post how much it cost. And that's an interesting assumption you made.

Indeed
All I had to do was email them, linked them to a picture (andrew's from Australia)
For someone who "doesn't" speak English, I sure got the right part in a week.

You want expensive, buy a complete Termignoni 70mm exhaust for a Ducati 1098S (stainless, carbon wrapped mufflers). Not saying the Bimmer exhaust is cheap, Ti adds $$$.

Yea Akras are awesome.. maybe i'll get one one day for my CBR.
you're lucky!!!!!!
its almost like hit or miss with ducatis. they're either full of problems, or daily ridden so they're high miles, but no problems

What do you have? I've always wanted a 749. Love the stacked headlights and the useless ear mirrors

Just picked up a 1098s...had a 916 long ago. Which never had an issue.
I've ridden my buddy's 748...um...a bit low on power, go for the liter bike with them twins.
