If not what about a street legal Akrapovic system? Do they make in CF?
I think it's hard to say what's the best... but Leo Vinci's are very well constructed. Their welds are beautiful, their materials are first rate. The sound is full-bodied throaty without being D&D obnoxious.
But they are no better or worse than Akrapovic, Arrow, Arata, Moriwaki, Sato, or Yoshimura. What they are is a good buy for the money, with only perhaps Yosh being the more price attractive... but that would depend entirely whom you purchased it from & how much they discounted.
Yes, both L.V. and Akra as well as Arrow, Arata, Yosh & Sato make a c/f cannisters along with Ti.
Shop around - do massive searches and you can find differences of more than $100.00 for the same pipe. Time is $$$ as they say. Also, check into what the S&H charges are from each vendor, as this cost may erase any real savings. Some places don't even charge S&H!
