Do you have pics of the underside? Have yet to see what valvetronics actually did with theirs vs PSI

I believe the valvetronic is a single mid pipe where the psi retains the dual setup

Just no contest this is the best sounding midpipe IMO. Not to mention reduces the weight by the most too. 200-Cell downpipes + Valvetronic + Akra Slip on probably one of the best combo's but also incredibly expensive.

Nice!

Midpipe is always best bang for a buck in terms of sound upgrade

Install is a breeze and you get much deeper tones

Now to complete it with a nice axle back and it will pur and sing

Currently the exhaust comes alive between 4-5k rpm and I love it. But a good rear section will definitely complete it in time

Does the sound change with throttle settings of normal vs sport and sport plus?

Wow, that sounds really good. It sure brings out the deeper tone without the burbs.

Nope, just have the valve button on, but no drone in the cabin ever
