I wonder if those jeans are somehow affecting the blood flow to his ankles.

Titanium doesn't sound that good imo. I much prefer the deep tone of stainless

Are you saying it does not sound good or that it's comparable to other good options that are selling for cheaper?

It sure doesn't. You're paying that much to sound just like stock. No thank you. I still think Remus has the best sounding exhaust on this platform.

Agreed, so far the Remus sounds the best to me.

It needs to break in that's for sure, ours is awesome and does NOT sound stock, our video on our Akrapovic G80 is coming very soon.

I have to admit this sounds similar to what I experienced when I got the full Akra exhaust on my 718 GT4. Changed initially and then after a couple thousand miles, it really opened up. It sounds absolutely incredible on that car.

I am saying it sounds ordinary and doesn't seem like it is worth the premium over Remus. Now the only thing holding me back is the cutting of the stock exhaust needed on this car for Remus, wish it was just bolt on like other cars. I really wanted to go titanium I've had tomei on my previous car but it doesn't seem worth it for this car.

Got it :thumbs-up:

It's a bummer that REMUS doesn't offer a full midpipe replacement. Active Autowerke is one of the few companies that offers a full midpipe + axle-back system

I have ordered the Remus Race cat back exhaust. I'm not going to cut my stock exhaust. I plan on going to my local muffler shop and have them create the pipes necessary to remove those secondary cats. I want my car sounding like the one in Shmee's video.

Please update us once you receive it with a video. This is the exact same thing I want.

Any engineering types care to explain what might happen to make it change a lot? That's interesting…

The full system is for the euro market. Here in the US the exhaust is secondary cat back, which means the secondary cats are retained. There are no flanges to connect to the downpipes.

Have a feeling it's a matter of time before it's available in US. If anything, they are more stringent there then here.
