That's correct. I don't expect the Akrapovic to be any louder than the factory muffler, nor do I expect an increase in power. Combined with the decat, it may sound different then the factory slip-on, but we'll see. I'll test both just to see if there's a difference in the way they sound.Hi All, new to the community, my 2016 S has been decatted and runs the stock silencer, not that it does much, if you look at the stock silencer there's not much inside it anyway - unless mine has had the internals ripped out, plenty loud enough. I dont think a slip on will make a lot of difference and for a stock can it looks pretty good.
I chose the Akrapovic because it saves a bit of weight and it looks beautiful, especially combined with the carbon heat shield that's included. There's nothing wrong with the original slip-on, I just prefer the Akra.
