We can take care of the check engine light for you.

PM me if you are interested.

Thanks,
Mike

not to crazy about it. the first part of the clip with the stock muffler and x pipe sounded the best. that sounded more exotic then with the muffler added.

nice system though

it is 5 million times better in person with this setup then stock. The youtube video cannot do it justice.

It may sound nice in the video, but it sounds a little off (IMO) at low RPMs in real life.

I've been torn between doing a Fabspeed X-pipe and HFC setup vs. full Akrapovic evolution. This isn't too bad, sounds great, congratulations.

It was sort of a toss up for me too -- I ended up going with the Fabspeed HFC's and X pipe, but haven't had the time to get them installed yet. They have been sitting here for a few weeks.

I think I am going to do that with the Akra slip on and call it a day.
