Time to do some research and figure out for yourself which one you like best.

I can offer some suggestions for systems to check out. Let me know if you need help with pricing
  • Akrapovic
  • Supersprint
  • aFe
  • Active Autowerke
  • Agency Power
  • Vanguard
  • Gintani

Gintani! The sound is absolutely intoxicating! I couldn't be happier with mine...the real question is Race or sport?

I vote for Gintani for most power gains based on my experience with gintani, eisenmann and akra rear sections.

Power? Gintani, but Akra is proven as well. Out of these two, Gintani will put down slightly more power but the Akra will be quieter. If you are okay with a loud but good sounding setup then go Gintani.
