Yes, the Akra Carbon has the extended loop on it to maintain the original length of the oem exhaust.

Yep. Supposedly to get the required header length to gain maximum performance.

If you hadn't spent all your money on those two girls to pose with you, you could have one too.  ;)  Ha!

Howdy. I'd like to know your impressions after riding with it a while. I have the same set up with o2 sensor removed and snorkel + cover removed as well. EJK settings I'm using are the ones recommended for these mods. I have played with the settings some to try and get more power in the higher gear roll'ons. I like the fact that I can hear that deep rumble when I throttle up in any of the gears or even just cruising. What I'm not crazy about is the "raspy metal on metal vibrating sound" that occurs when in neutral and I rev it and let off. This also happens when going through the motions of changing gears and the engine breaking kicks in for a split second. I think this is common with this exhaust but any feedback is appreciated.

I haven't noticed that. But could also be too caught up enjoying the thunderclap every time I crack the throttle! Lol! I'll pay more attention and get back to you.
