Berk Midpipes

Im thinking about throwing on some Berk Midpipes, my question is whether or not they make much of a difference in power or sound over the stock midpipes..
I have DPs and will soon have an AFE axelback and i'm wonder what the difference would be compared to stock midpipes with those other attachments on.. If its little to nothing, then I feel it's not worth the money..

Midpipes have a big effect on sound. As they're dual 2.5" (rather than 2.25"), delete the cats (if N54) and box resonator and add in dual bottle resonators you can expect the sound to be deeper and louder. The amount of drone and rasp should also be controlled thanks to the bottle resonators.

They're a bit boomy IMO, but all in all far better than the stock mids for the above mentioned reasons. They certainly kill rasp nicely, and drone isn't bad with my setup.

You will soon realise how much louder your car is when you put the afe exhaust on...

I just did this and with catless dp's it is ALOT louder. Since the afe is effectively a straight pipe I think going berk mids will be VERY loud...

I'm running dps, n55 mids, and factory axleback, loud on cold start but it mellows out, growls on wot, but pretty quite for cruising

I originally had the berk race axleback but with the dps, it was stupid loud for cruising as this is my daily and cold starts were ridiculous
