Looking to turn my 08 zx6r into a track bike and looking for a good setup to get the most hp, headers and all.

Thanks.

I believe more road racers use those 2 vendors pipes more than any others. The LeoVince will be a little less expensive. Either one is a top notch pipe.

Note:
You maybe able to find the Full Racing Line Akra along with the Full Titanium Evo Akra. The specs are exactly the same. The racing line has stainless tubes instead of an all titanium system that the evo has. You will save about 2 lbs with the evo. The racing line will save you a few hundred bucks and be a little more durable when you have those get-offs.

Any idea how much diff in horse power between the higher end systems vs say a yoshi?

Saw on ebay a yoshi is about $800 and the akra are around $1500 worth the money?

It's all up to the tuner.
Just slappin' the exhaust on, won't net much gain.
The Akra is lighter(full titanium) and much better looking(IMO),
but you can achieve similar gains with a full Yoshi, if you have a good tuner.

I would say that the very best system would be the Beet-Nassert.
But, I don't think they make them anymore.
If you're on a budget, the Yoshi should do fine.
But, if you're looking to go hard-core track junkie and want every 10th of a HP and want to shave every fraction of an ounce,
the full titanium Akra will probably be the better system.

difference in HP? not much. maybe 1-2 if that, and that could be on a GOOD day and maybe a generous dyno. for instance a buddy of mine with the same bike as me (08 6r) has the same setup i have (look in sig). his top dyno run was 115 hp. most were 114.5 or so. ive seen runs on similar bikes with Akra and Leo and honestly, theyre all around the same HP.

not saying dont buy Akra or Leo if your budget allows and you want them. theyre great systems. but you dont lose much with a Yoshi setup.
