Section 1 Pipes AKA Mid Pipe

Having section 1 pipes installed along with mufflers this week,I have a Q.

A. Section 1 Pipes (Resonated)

B. Section 1 Pipes (Non-Resonated)

Which is recommended best for power gains and a loud deep sound.

Thanks guys.

If you are planning on getting catless dp then get resonated or it will be quite raspy IMO

I'd go non-resonated. What size are the pipes on the Akra's? I think Meisterschaft offers the largest piping out there but I'd have to double check.

You will want the resonated mid pipes otherwise you may get some unwanted rasp from the system. Especially if you are going cat less.

It will also depend on the muffler system used.
