Re: stainless steel muffler (aftermarket)


Hi Dave,

Yes it is possible and it has been done before, however the huge size of the stock muffler is a good enough reason to have it replaced.

It is the lowest point on the exy.

Here is a photo of a modified stock muffler as you suggested. Looks nice, but still too bulky for my liking.

Jalal, is that the fake extra pipe you were telling me about or a working one?

BTW, yes I do have the old system but I am not going to try modding it now, no point!! emoticon

Yep, that's the fake one I was telling you about. It's welded on just for show.

posticon The Birth of the 2nd Twins


Hi Guys,

Operation X-Trail Twins # 2 (towbar version) has been successfully completed this morning emoticon

Both driver and twins are doing fine and very excited. hehehe

Ok, where do I start? I think I would start by telling you that it nearly took the guys 3 hours to finish my exhaust mod, because of the towbar and the bloody fuel evaporative system that was in the way.

It was like trying to solve a jigsaw puzzle, which was at the end (thanks to the guys at Hi-Tech) solved!

BEFORE EXHAUST UPGRADE

These are the photos of what the standard "bulky" Nissan exhaust looks like (am sure you know it) emoticon

Here are the supports for the tail-pipes:

Left side (supported by a metal strap that has been welded between the muffler and the first bend in the pipe)

in or sign up to see linked image content--

Right side (supported by the OEM hanger that was no longer required for the new smaller muffler)

in or sign up to see linked image content--

I'm happy to let you that the system is quiet as a mouse and I test driven the exy at a speed reaching 120kms/hour and I couldn't even hear it with the windows down and stereo off.

I will be monitoring both performance and fuel economy very closely and will report back.

My assumption is that HP should slightly increase due to higher flow of gases that was created by the double tail pipe set-up, but I could be wrong.

I'm also happy to let you know that the system is fully compliant with the Australian Emission Standards as confirmed by Hi-Tech Muffler.

In terms of noise level compliance, the allowed noise level is 90db and this set-up is actually much quieter than the factory system I used to have.

The exhaust upgrade carries 10 years warranty.

FYI. Nissan does not look favourably at exhaust system upgrades and it might affect your warranty, should anything happen that can be related to the exhaust system. Although I can't see any reasons for a mod of this type to affect anything, as the cat converter has been untouched. Still, you need to consider this and the implications it may cause to your warranty.

I'm extremely happy with this mod and when I looked at the post I made in the "Performance Thread" I have actually inquired about this exact set-up with Hi-Tech back in April '05 and I did say that I was planning to do it around [sign in to see URL] this year, so am not that late emoticon

Noel, your turn mate to create the 3rd set of twins LOL. They guys at Hi-Tech are waiting for you and they have been warned that you too have a towbar. Your mod will be much faster to implement now that they know how to go around that evap. thing.

The best thing of all (in fact it was the main reason I have done this mod) is the fact that the muffler is nowhere to be seen and it is no longer the lowest point of the exy, so off-roading will be much more comforting now, knowing that I don't have to worry about the "monster" at the back. emoticon


Go the Aussie Exy! hehehe


(EDIT) I have moved this thread to the Main Chat area, because it is no longer a question and answer type of thread, It is actually a full-on mod which would be of interest to many members. Thanks to Dave 4x4 for creating this thread in the first place.

Nice Jalal ,

What now is the lowest point in the car and what is its distance from the ground, do you have before and after measurements?

Hi Matt,

Sorry, I have no idea what is the lowest point on the car now. I haven't checked that, but I suspect that my side steps will be the ones and they're 240mm off the ground.

Nice one Jalal!! Welcome to the "twin" club!! emoticon

Looks like the boys at Hi-Tech looked after you well and they have done a great job.

I am surprised you say this new system is even quieter than the stock one, mine is definitely much louder and seems to be getting deeper as it beds in. We just had a weekend down in Berry and my wife actually complained that the exhaust note was getting into her head and giving her a headache but no complaints on the way back - we turned up the stereo! emoticon
