Took the plunge!

Even though I am a noob to this forum, I wanted to let you guys know I ordered the Akrapovic CBE, and although some will think I’m a clown for spending so much money on my first mod, I felt it was the right move.


It will be getting installed either Friday or a week from Wed, depending on my work schedule. If you guys want, I will post pics and videos. The AMS UICP and the rally armor flaps will be added as well, I can’t lie, I am pretty pumped!

Again, let me know if you guys would like me to post some pics and vids.

Thanks to this whole forum for covering everything possible there is to cover!

Pics and a sound clip would be much appreciated! You going to do any other bolt-ons and a tune any time soon?

Yes, Carbon fiber tips (I made sure of that..lol) I'm not 100% sure of the weight, kind of a rough guess but between 12-18 lbs, and I could be wrong. I couldnt get off fri, so It will be a week from wed when I'll have it put on in Scottsdale.

Weezy, I can't lie, it was double that...I'll bring my digital cam for pics and vids, altho I'm not good at any of that stuff...
