akrapovic and powerchip...thumbs up

i know there are a lot of akra exhaust posts lately, but i had to chime in with my pleasure to do business with POWERCHIP/mike and AUTOTALENT/sam ...both awesome people to work with and quite accomodating.
i love the rear slipon akrapovic exhaust with polished tips, and the powerchip tune.......car drives much smoother and just feels and sounds gooooooood.
i know it's overkill for a 'vert' but it makes for a even more enjoyable day with the top down....
if i knew how to add pix, i would, oh well, sorry.

Nice!

My Akra slip on is on it's way and I was talking to Mike too about the Powerchip tune, glad to hear you like it.

IMO i would do the full exhaust THEN get the tune...more beneficial and everything is done at once instead of installing muffler then tune then adding xpipe then tune again...

His exhaust sounded amazing and its nice to see a tuned 'vert going around.

I had more fun bringing the car back to you than from you to the shop Glad you like it, and excellent choice on the exhaust and rims I might add.
