niice, i remember your car sounded pretty beastly (i'm sure the SC had something to do with it too ) I thought about putting resonators on the MRF I still have if it didn't sell, and I didn't like the Akra set-up too... but so far I'm loving the full Akra. What x-pipe do you have it paired with?

yea, it was just time for a change for sure. The previous set up was just loud and obnoxious (although admittedly very fun for a week), now I can have conversations in my car on the freeway– a previously foreign concept sadly. Hope the MRF is treating you well!

The xpipe and oem muffler was not a good combo for me. I have an AA slip on. I can't believe that I am missing the scream of my oem.

What i miss from the xpipe is the sound that emanates from underneath the car. Ill take the plunge again.

I'm running the gintani x pipe with 4 resonators.. the full akra is just a little bit too quiet for me.. this went 1 step higher.. which is perfect.

but im glad u like it!

Took out the carbon leather trim, and wrapped brushed aluminum matte black. (thanks 90210 Wraps!!) Very happy with the new look– its much more understated than the carbon leather, and it brings the matte outside, inside

Now the center pieces is rattling like crazy , so i've got to fix that. Also I know, the car is filthy, and those finger marks are from a curious girlfriend, and thankfully will easily go away.
