After living with a ZCP for several days now, I gotta say the stock ZCP exhaust is fantastic and rivals most aftermarket setups in sound.

It sounds very different than the 2015 non-ZCP. It might just be a 2015 vs. 2016 thing with even more improvements over the changes they supposedly made for 2016.

I highly suggest you guys have a listen to a ZCP yourself. I can't imagine how good it'll sound with downpipes.

Did you do cold start with valves open? Because my is super loud with open valves on a cold start. With valves closed it is super quiet. When the exhaust is cold it is raspy but once warmed up the sound becomes deeper and clean.

Everyone has their opinions on loudness and how raspy the nose is so it's honestly subjective.

Videos would never capture the full noise no matter how hard you try. I originally thought Akra Evo sounded bad but after finally hearing it first hand in person my opinion changed completely. Akra Evo with Stock DP sounds so clean with just the right amount of rasp it is actually surprising how much I like it.

I am most probably going into Evo some time in the future but I am putting on Akra Slip-On in just a few hours.

Do tell on how you like the sound from the akra slip on once it's on. I'm sure the full system sounds good, I need to hear Justin's car with the full system.

I have heard it.

I honestly like Akra Evo w/ Stock DP better. It sounds better and cleaner. Akra Evo with DP is a bit raspy all over.

To bad the price of entry is so high for the full system. I would love to hear this set up in person.

Justin's car sounds amazing and looks amazing as well. One of the best modded cars I've seen so far.
