Very impressive. Usually video doesn't sound good but this one is my speed. Well done.

Looks nice, classic sound. How loud would you say in comparison so some other full systems like the Evo?

The tips are a tapered double wall design. Our exhaust is different than the Evo in terms of sound as the Evo uses titanium which has a different sound than stainless at high RPM's. In terms of power it is going to be similar to the Evo but unlike the Evo we place our high flow cat in the stock location which allows us to not trigger the CEL due to increased emissions and allows the the OBD readiness monitors to set properly when paired with our tune. We use a very efficient 200 cel cat in our design. We could have used a 100 cel cat and moved it further down to make a couple more HP but we really wanted the system to be OBD compliant, the trade off was only about 3-4 whp. We are also working on a full catless design but we will not release it unless we can get the sound on it to be what we want.

Our exhaust can be purchased in black if that is what you are asking. We do not sell black tips alone.

It sounds very good with the stock exhaust. This was how the system was first tested before we finished the mid section. Having a slip on that complimented the stock mid section while providing a more agressive note was very important to us.

Nice job guys! Sounds good, I'm just surprised you managed to develop supercharger systems before exhaust system! I guess go complex first hehe

The exhaust we decided to do for fun as a side project for our own cars. We had requests from customers to offer it as an option so we did

Roman that sounds absolutely amazing! Even more amazing that it's OBD compliant!

And here I never thought I'd see the day where I considered ditching my Akra Evo...
