Second this one. Alek is real good and treats your car as if it were his own. Fast install too while still doing it right.

I would contact Nate @ IND for your Akrapovic purchase. Excellent service and reputation.

as much as everyone has their favorite go to vendor, I think most fail to notice, nor care to see that the OP's location is SF (Nor Cal), why would anyone suggest a vendor 1/2 way across the country, there by suggesting the OP pay for shipping charges as well..when there are a couple of local reputable vendors to him (Sonic MS and alekshop).....

***no, I did not get my akra slip on from either of those vendors...as i went with a vendor local to me...

Stay local. Go to Sonic MS. I did my research and they gave me the best deal for my Akra Evo with install.

We have a special on for the Akra Evo plus our ECU tune, so you wouldn't need to purchase the delete-r system for $400 to remove the CEL and we discount a further $300 for the package, as well as add power and remove the torque dip caused by the Akra. Link

This thread is hilarious lol, you are in the US, the prime of aftermarket car parts!

Try living in the UK and wanting to chip,tune,upgrade your car, trust me you have to look a lot harder....

You guys have all the aftermarket SC guys and the best tuners in the world there (i know slightly off topic) but look around mate, you will find it.. easy.

This.
Shipping is ~$150 and tax is 10% of ~$5,500. That's not a small difference.
