Thumbs down graves vs akrapovic exhaust

which do y'all feel is the better looking / performer of the two I'm comparing their carbon systems as they seem to be the ones making most power. other wise i also like the akrapovic titanium. but between the two I'm leaning toward the graves cause the header shape and their titanium headers vs akrapovic stainless steel headers graves comes in 3 lbs lighter! help me out here

i like the looks of the akro ti best of all but its hard to argue with the graves setup. especially considering the weight savings over the akro

I wish the Akron ti headers were ti it's misleading. What are the benefits of a titanium muffler over a Acropovic carbon muffler? Wait for an extra X amount of money couple hundred bucks?

I haven't heard the Graves. I have the Akro and love the look and sound. The weight and power differences, if there is any probably isn't enough for me to notice.

I had the exact same dilemma before buying my exhaust. So happy I went with the Graves, but I'm sure you would be happy with either. The sound is awesome, welding is top notch, full titanium, and doesn't do a loop in front of the rear tire. It was pricey, but the deal maker was the relationship with FT-Ecu, active tune, and smog block off plates. I wouldn't install an exhaust without tuning.
