I remember several videos done to document exhaust notes on different exhaust systems....sorry no references or bookmarks...in fact I believe that a couple were on R1200S forum...Akra did have a "unique" note! [besides the sound of dollars burning
]...if you are really interested it will take time but searches on forums will get you at least some idea of how each system sounds..
Now how about a set of Smitty's on a flat-head motor! Or the DOHC 6 cyl Jags...or...
