HOLY SHIT–sweet and loud is often difficult to attain but Akra managed it again. Nice!

Have you got a custom intake to amplify the turbo whoosh?

M8 has stock intake system.
Just BMC air filter panel.
Turbo whoosh is really present.

Gpower used the original turbo housings, CNC machined bigger – inlet (exhaust wheel) and bigger outlet (compressor wheel)

Yeah, I definitely heard it which partly prompted my question. The Eventuri intake was night and day for my car with the stock Comp exhaust, see here if interested:



The Akra sounds great, regardless.

Automotive orchestra could not sound any better.

By the way, your video is best presented with a caption “presented without comments”. No comments are needed.

TCU is not possible yet with latest Bmw software.
It was possible with earliest M5.
Tuners are working on that.
Stage 3 map is very progressive in order to save gearbox by the way.
Stage 3 is over 1000Nm.

Yes. It’s a very pronounced sound increase with or without, though. I set it to map 0 an hour or so later and I’m not sure there was a discernible difference.

The M8 Competition received a stage 3 map by GPower in Germany.
This mean bigger turbos(honeywell),DP 200 cell,full titanium akra and remap
KW springs and front spacer 12mm only.
At the end car run with 830 hp ,0-100kmh 2,8s , 100-200kmh 5,8s in 4 WD.
My M8 is the first with a full carbon fiber bonnet also by GPower.
Soon some more pics and videos

How much was the gpower treatment? And did they offer any drivetrain warranty?

Looking at Manhart where they have something similar for 19,000 euro, plus full warranty for another 3,900 euro

G-Power is cheaper than Mahnhart.
Yes they offer warranty same as Manhart.
This is the number of sales director.
His name is Bujar.

He’s very kindly and professional.

I wish we had something like either of those in the states near DC. For the 2019 M850i series.
M8 only I guess.
