    Crackles (Overrun) on a 1st Gen R8?

    I have a 2010 V10 R8 with a Rev9 Titanium exhaust installed. Is it possible to create the right amount of crackles and pops without it being too much or exaggerated?

    Would this require an engine remap? New tune?

    Yep. Over-run is part of the ECU tune. Is your exhaust valved? Does it sound any different in sport mode? I'm tuned, but only get Rice Krispies in sport mode.

    No valves, so doesn't sound different in sport mode. Any recommendations for the ECU tune?

    There are many different schools there. I went with APR, partly because I'm invested, but mostly because I love what they did for my SQ5. It's been the most fun / best all-around daily driver I've ever had, and this GT has been my best weekend warrior, too.

    My only power mods have been the APR tune and the QuickSilver valved exhaust. My valves are normally open, which is typically how I leave them, but I can press "On" on the remote if I need it to be quiet. It always starts with sport mode off, and I will drive like that, without the raudi pops when gearing down. Once it warms up and I turn on sport mode, hello Rice Krispies! I like my setup, but then so does everyone (like their own setup) that's already spent the money.

    I have the APR tune and a valved Capristo and don't get hardly any crackles on the over run. Now and again if everything is nice and hot you will get the odd pop, but nothing of any note.

    I also have the APR tune, but have a Capristo exhaust...I don't get any crackles :-(

    My tune was done back in 2013...when did you get yours? Maybe yours is a newer tune, where crackles were added?

    Mine was done at the same time as the exhaust, which was about eight months ago, around April. They change these tunes frequently, so there probably was an update done that added them. No worries, mate! With APR, you get free updates. When I updated the tune in the SQ5, it was free, but I still tipped my tuner.

    It's been said that the VF tune gives the car lots of pops and crackles.

    Do you have any videos of the pops with your Kline?
