Aleks.
I had a look at the installation instructions.

The vacume tube and associated hardware seemed quite complex.
Could you elaborate on how difficult this part of the installation was?

Does anyone have any idea what power gains we can expect from the slip-on system, if any?

Nice detailed instructions from Akra - but man, I bet I could install the entire system including DP's in a fraction of the time it would take just to install that wireless kit!

@ Aleks
Great sound! But please make me sure to have understood: in your video you have FULL evolution exhaust system (with wireless kit), and downpipes too??
Becuase in this video the sound seems louder (and maybe too loud for me and Italian police).
Thanks

With wireless kit you still have option to turn it off. It is also too loud for me during normal daydrive (that's my car). Please have in mind that this was recorded under industrial tent and there was some echo, therefore such brutal sound.

On off it is ok also for Italian police, I've tested several times in Udine and Trieste

On "on"; I've been on Redbull ring in Zeltweg and the car was among the loudest on the track, but it wasn't annoying loud. I think it was just perfect.

Yes he has the full system including the downpipes. You can't compare volume between videos. The difference comes from mic recording levels, distance from car, quality of mic, location/surrounding objects that reflect sound, and post processing levels. There are way too many variables to compare exhaust sound from different videos. That's why everyone always says you need to hear them in person to really make a judgement call.

Good, but it's really hard hear it in person, I have only seen one other 1M than mine until now, and full stock as mine

Yes it is , but it you change one of those components you can get an updated file that will be appropriate to the hardware on your car.
