Newbie from Adelaide


Hi all, I have been lurking for a while (couple of weeks) and picked up my black, auto, series 2, 04 Ti L (sunroof) yesterday with 22000km. I have found this site both interesting and also very informing. I will be getting the stainless tip put on later today as well as the dummy second tip and pipe from the other side of the muffler (as in the post on the board). Getting this done for $140 in stainless!! The guy has stated that he can get the dummy working by tapping into the standard muffler, but I am not sure... Should I just leave this as a dummy or get it blowing a puff of air, I dont overly like the concept of cutting into the standard muffler when it is not really going to do much.. What do u reckon?

Hi ryan123,

And Welcome to the forums.

$140 for the stainless tip and dummy second pipe sounds cheap, is this parts only?

Personally I think it's a waste of time tapping the second pipe into the existing muffler, your better off getting one of those smaller/slimline mufflers which have been designed for twin outlets.

no that is installed, i will post photos when done. It includes 2 stainless tips ( resonator style), the bit of pipe from the left side of muffler and the installation. Most places were quoting me around $220 - $250.

Hi Ryan,

That is a very good price, however as Noel stated above, it's not really worth the hassle of tapping into the existing factory muffler, as you wont achieve anything by doing that except the good looks of showing people that the second pipe is actually working (especially during cold starts in winter) emoticon

You also have to remember that if you do that, the factory muffler will no longer be covered by warranty and should anything go wrong with it (and the potentials for that are high) Nissan will not replace it for you or charge you for its replacement.

From memory the price of the factory muffler is around $800 mark from the dealers, so my advice is that you should weigh-up your options carefully.

Yes, I decided not to hack into the original box due to the warranty issue (still got a year remaining). It still looks good though... bargain for $140 with stainless.

How do i post images?

Hi again Ryan,welcome to Exy heaven that is this website. We met at the MTB race in the Eagle on the Hill [sign in to see URL] have to meet up again & discuss your exhaust mods & everything exy. But not MTB emoticon I was exhausted & only did one lap. Chris Jongewaard passed me 3 times & beat me to the finish.
