Anybody got Akrapovic in NorCal ?

Trying to figure out what would be a better for me Akrapovic (slip on) or Eisenmann Sport ...

Of the two you mentioned, I personally like the sound of the Eisenmann. For the money I was expecting the Akra to sound more aggressive.

I've heard of whole Akra set up in person, its really nice. Not too loud yet very sporty at the same time. I haven't heard the Eisenmann sport in person yet but I would probably go for the Akra system for the weight savings and performance increase.

Aleks, having a great great time. They bumped me up to class C mid day. Not bad considering that this was just my third HPDE. There are 2 Astons on the track along with the usual Porsche & Lotus. There was a 360 Modena as swell as the V10 R8 on the paddock.

in Dublin ... the guy does super nice job and like i said, last time he charged me $25 to install Eisenmann Race without connecting pipes ... I am not kidding ...

but if you decide to do it somewhere else, let me know if you have some time to meet, so I can take a look at it ...

Thanks.

Doba if you come down the the south bay to take a peek, maybe stop by and visit. (Unfortunately, the stroker is in SoCal right now.)
I'll be actually in Morgan Hill maybe next month or so ... So I would be glad to check out your car as well ... Let me know when you get it back ...

BTW did you find a driver ?

Can you let me know who that is? I need someone to look at my AA and figure out why I can't get it perfectly straight.
