2 Questions - Akra & Powercommander

What is the difference between these 2 exhausts

$ 426.00

$ 456.00

Also, I am going to get a new exhaust this week, I plan on getting a powercommander eventually (mostly when I have more money). I just got a $283.00 IRS refund check today. So I coming up with the rest of the money from working. If you guys can convince me to get the powercommander now instead of waiting then I will do it.

Does the bike really need the PC?
What is the major advantage?
Will the bike be fine or will it be damaged at all without the PC? My dealer said they wouldn't install an aftermarket exhaust without one.

with a good slip-on your bike will function properly even without PC, it's up to you if you wanna spend a few hundred $ more for a couple of hp, i have a slip-on but no PC but i have used this for thousands of kilometers with no ill effects. also the company that made my slip-on said the bike doesn't need any remapping.

PC's have nothing to do with H.P, and more to do with refining your ride, ie. better throttle response, smoother more linear delivery and yes, more power but only as a consequence of getting the air/fuel right, coz it ain't now. No there is no problem running your bike with no PC, you do not NEED it and it won't harm your bike not having it on. But you'd better believe it'll make a big difference to your bike, more than the pipe will. Hope this helps.

I'm assuming that the SP is for street performance and the more expensive one's for race.
