Really sweet set of cans, just installed it last week with my un1t garage stainless steel headers. I had the full Akra titanium system on my previous bike and I thought it sounded a bit too tinny, so I decided to go with full SS this time. Really happy I did it, it sounds nice and deep now, not too loud because I left the DB killers in. One note: it was loud as feck for the fist few days — I was worried I’d get arrested — but it has quieted down a bit now to a much more civilized tone. Also, for the inevitable video request: no. iPhone video never does these things justice, as you know.

Does SS header really sound better then Ti? Were you compared it with the exact same exhaust? Am looking fr a header but debating between SS and Ti
Btw, exhaust looks nice and I think the size is perfect

I think it does sound better, but I didn’t compare the two with the same exhaust. My titanium headers were paired with the titanium exhaust, whereas these new stainless headers are paired with a stainless exhaust.

i should also note that I last heard the first setup back in 2016, so it could all be in my head 😜

Interesting comments from mattmiller1973. A friend had a full Ti system fitted to his 911, sounded tinny, all deep tones were gone.

What windscreen is that? Looks both great and functional.

It is the Puig Retrovision and it is really great. I like it a lot. Can’t decide if I should have it painted to match or not…
