Are the Akra pipes smaller diam than stock?

I was just looking at pictures again and it seems like the Akra has smaller diameter piping than stock...anyone want to confirm/bust this?

If yes, why?

in my uneducated opinion...
I wouldnt think so, though i have seen the Choke downs on these exhaust (in diamater) to a certain extent, *skinnier than of factory.

Then again its Titanium material, i would assume the walls to be thinner, while being strong.

HOPE i didnt give TOO wrong of an answer, this is just my uneducated .02

Akra pipes are not smaller than stock.

The Stock exhaust is not round in very many places. The stock system is mostly oval, and is flattened down in many spots on the centre section. The connecting pipes on the rear muffler are actually triangular shaped.

The Akra pipes are round and mandrel bent/hydroformed so that they maintain consistent diameter from headers to mufflers. Side by side it is easy to tell the Akra is a mud superior design where flow is concerned.
