Akra Full versus Akra Slip-on, Maddad and AR Downpipe

I am looking at getting either;

Akra down pipes + Akra Evolution cat back OR;

AR downpipes + Maddad + Akra Slip on

The second option will be considerably cheaper and I am just curious to know whether there will be much difference in sound or anything else? I also noticed that the Maddad pipe looks very similar in design to the Akra mid section (except that it is in once piece).

Thoughts welcome.

Sound difference will be subjective. Really need to hear those systems together. You may notice a few lbs of weight savings with the full akra, and it is a beautiful piece. For the price though I am not sure it is worth it. Power will be the same. Really comes down to what you want. Like I said though, the price difference wouldn't be worth it to me.

I have an Akra full + AR catted Dp's (with the switchable wireless kit ) .

When the valves are closed = sounds close to stock.

When the valves are open = unleash hell ! It sounds intoxicating and not disturbing actually as some vids on youtube seemed to show..try taking it in a tunnel and you'll mistake the sound for some exotic ferrari (no thats not an exagaration!).
