LMAO can’t wait to get back home to my Condo in Michigan
Thanks for posting the vids Gerry, I’ve been out of the loop with this sickness.
If you are considering making an exhaust upgrade : DO IT!
Getting a lot of messages, is it worth it.
Yes and Yes!!!
Weight Reduction
Better throttle response
Carbon Fiber tips look awesome
no cleaning that black stuff
SOUND! Takes that BA stock exhaust and amps it up to BAMF.
NO drone. Your baby becomes a true BEAST.
OH and Gerry He will take care of you.

How would you describe the sound over stock both at idle and full throttle. Can you post the price as well.

For those of us who run our exhaust non stop in track mode etc, the black build up inside the tips ;>

The sound is the ZR exhaust amplified plus the infamous Akra snap/snarl when yout hit it. You don't lose the ability to adjust modes. Still running it in Track for my Neighbors maximum enjoyment

Cost you will need to get a quote, but they are worth the money! Most fun I have had with a car lol Make sure to get the Evo with akra Xpipe! Vids don't do the sound justice. Took my Friend's C7Z out with Akra for a drive, "used" to thing that was so bad azz, lol seemed quiet compared to the Dragon ZR.. Will try and get some fly bys Those who have made the upgrade told me I would love it, they were not wrong

This is the best thing I’ve ever done to a car. It’s just that fun One does not simply get a ZR to remain under the radar lol

Just a question I have before I pull the trigger is, I seem to remember there being some comments from GM about increased exhaust heat in zr1 so much that they had to use a thicker steel. I know Akra is titanium, I dont know however if this heat issue is a problem with akra.

Haven't heard of any heat issues with the Akra Titanium Exhaust on the ZR1, Deb runs it as well as Carl hcvone and many others and haven't had any issues that I"m aware of, but great question.

Take care
