Re: Titanium or Carbon Akra for 954?????

Yeah I like the arata systems, but not willing to spend the price. Unless anyone knows someone selling a used one/new one for under a grand.....

Re: Titanium or Carbon Akra for 954?????

Why not try a Hindle full system? Significantly cheaper and releases just as much HP as any other exhaust out there. Just a suggestion if money is an issue. Good luck with what ever you choose.

P.S. nhfirefighter13 was selling them a while back for some decent prices. You may want to PM him to see what's up? I did...
