AR downpipe Berk race

Does anyone have this setup on their car? I have the downpipe already in the car and the axle back in my closet.

Curious to know what it sounds like.

I'm running AR catless DP, stock N54 mid (resonator and cats), and Berk Race.

It sounds great! Much deeper than my previous setup (AR DP, N55 mid, BMW PE) and still has the awesome top end scream. Plenty of turbo noise, but honestly not too loud. It even passes emissions. You could DD this setup.

Finally someone who isn't a smart ass and actually answered my question. Thanks for the info man, I appreciate it! Just waiting on a new gasket so I can put it on.

buddy had one. Was so unbearably loud, and droned like a mother.

Sounded great under WOT. But how often are you WOT and how often are you cruising on the freeway? lol.

I've got the AR non-resonated pipes with the HPF exhaust... Loud as balls.

Got any videos? And how loud is unbearable? I used to DD a cammed/open dumped evo 8 a few years ago and I miss having a loud ass car. Only thing I'm worried about is cold starts being way to loud. The 4" downpipe makes it sound good but not loud enough lol

I don't have any audio that can even give an accurate representation of how loud it is - the iphone mic clips.

That being said, I have a low tolerance because this is my daily and I'm not into the whole "full racekor" life. I imagine your Evo8 to be louder though.

This is how my car sounds with the Berk Race Exhaust and VRSF catless downpipes. It sounds amazing videos don't do it justice.
