I hear ya though on the price. Dropping 7 bills on a tiny system is hard to swallow.
Guy on grom board weighed his OE full exhaust at 12.125lbs, since Akra claims a 15lbs savings, their exhaust is lighter then air!

He weighed the full C/F yosh exhaust at 8.? Lbs, so 4lbs lighter the OE, I would expect maybe 1 lb less on the Akra, 7.? Lbs

I keep telling myself that but somehow the weight always seems to get lost in my gut.

I doubt akra would claim to have a system that would drop more weight than the stock exhaust weighs. So someone is wrong and I don't think it's one of the biggest exhaust companies in the world. Akra might have a technicality or whatever but something ain't adding up right.

The 15lbs is true...7lbs for the exhaust and the rest is the money from your wallet.

No tuck, maybe a crouch, 59s from hillcroft to w belfort, but i'm WOT

Frwy is not as bad because the cars disturb the air flow, so it's kinda of not direct air against you. I get higher speeds on the frwy vs the cement barrier HoV lanes

I do stay in the right 2 lanes though, lol

Interesting. I can't imagine akra would blatantly lie like that but he ford said the older gt500's had 500hp(it was more like 430-450hp).

Edit: is the yosh carbon fiber lighter than the aluminum or is it just the style of it?
