Doesn't matter. This is like replacing the aluminum hood with CF. You save 5lbs and spend couple thousand dollars... Useless way of spending money on weight reduction. It is like using inconel for an axel-back exhaust and charging 4k$ it. It is maybe 1lb lighter than titanium, but for 2x the cost.. pointless. So I much rather buy Recaro seats, which are still very light and save bunch of money... or spend extra money for full akrapovic system to get good weight reduction.. better use of money.
