Does anyone know those pipes well? Can you get (most of) the power without the noise?

My wee-strom is on KSL for $3500 if you're interested.

The PO may have removed the inserts on the outlet end making it a bigger outlet & thus more noisy. You need to find replacements. Maybe an Akro dealer could help, who knows.
