Akra slip on PLUS other aftermarket X-Pipe

Hi there:

How many people went with Akra slip on but another aftermarket X-pipe?

Would you do it again, or go 100% Akra? Any other considerations regarding that setup?

I had it with Fabspeed xpipe and hfc's. Did this cause I needed to quiet down my system after having it with AA mufflers. Worked well and sounded great, however I got sick of the CEL which I was not supposed to get with the Fabspeed HFC's so I'm back to stock xpipe.

I hear you. I have concluded that if I go X-pipe then I will get software flash as well. For me these two go together. I also like the Akra or Challenge design with pair of cats in the secondary position. I like my kids enough to run cats, but only enough for a pair of cats not two pairs!

Cool, I also assume that like most you like the Akra exhaust?

IMHO - I would go full Akra for the weight savings. Otherwise, the Challenge piece is a good prices alternative.
