Thanks Sid and for the exhaust guy's info, going to get my OEM modded asap.

  • The M Performance was higher pitched than I had remembered and is a fantastic upgrade from OEM if you want to bypass any worries about warranty.
  • Still in love with my Gintani Race. Definitely need to get a diffuser to finish off how it looks.

(Taking my M into Schomp Weds for analysis on the Increased Emissions error... I suspect an O2 sensor but would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous they won't try to blame it on the exhaust swap.)
Agree with this^^^, nice summary. My Akra seems pretty mellow in this company so looking forward to the x-pipe to see how it opens up. Good luck at the dealer, don't forget you can go to another more mod-friendly one if they give you a hard time. Let me know if they wind up reflashing your car as a result of the CEL.

Speaking of which, I'll try to get a dyno day set up in the next month or so for anybody interested.
