I've seen it on H.org and it looks pretty clean if you like the mods. I'm curious how the paint on the rearsets holds up.

$9k is a good buy. Let us know how it turns out...

Single carbon can Akro race system looks great.....

dual cans = more weight/less power.

Is it remapped? Might be worth looking into when you get it. Everyone is doing the factory ECU reflashing now....probably the way to go. No boxes to fail and LOTS of adjustability. Check here for info:

Just slap her, tell her to get her in the kitchen and bake you a fvckin pie while you go to the speed shop to dyno tune your sh*t.....Thats how you handle that...

Robert and Joe have had pretty good luck with the Bazzaz box and a custom map. If I were to do it now, I would look into flashing the ecu. Only cost like $180 for the reflashing box, + dyno time and a little patience...Not to mention you can remove the top speed restriction, add some timing down low, have two different maps available in the ECU and toggle between them with a 12v switched source....Thats great for the nitrous kit you will soon be buying.

I wasnt a fan off the single exhaust on the busas until I discovered people dont expect the noise when you start it up


The group use to vibrate w the puffs out of the exhaust on mine.
