Re: Exhaust System Upgrades (aftermarket)


First fuel figures on LPG with extractors and sports exhaust.

Best (old exhaust) ever open road and cruise was 11.18 L/100 km.

First (second tank) after exhaust mods around town came to 11.89 L/100 km.

Usual around town is 13-13.9L/100 Km.

I can check the open road consumption on my trip to NSW tomorrow.. :-)

Re: Exhaust System Upgrades (aftermarket)


Just fitted Difilipo headers and hi flow cat. Headers are all stainless 409 grade ceramic coated. Darren himself informed me that the last X trail fitted showed a 14 fwkw gain. All I can say is that it was worth every cent ($1200 fitted). Not since I had the twin outlet straight through muffler fitted last year that I have noticed such gains. And the best thing is that I no longer have that old volkswagon style rattle at low revs like I have experienced in most X trails I have driven. That alone was worth the money!

List of mods so far:

Difilipo Headers with high flow cat
Twin outlet sports muffler
K&N filter
OBX throttle body spacer
Integra side steps
Tyre power mag wheels
225 open country Toyo's
Phillips globe upgrades (80% increase)

Keeping an eye out for some Ti leather seats.


Al.

Difilipo Headers.
Mate you made a great choice.
These are one of the best custom made set of pipes on the market.
You could have even bought it in kit form so you can custom weld the bends yourself.

I've seen these guys in operation on one of my favorite programs called GASOLENE (TVS thursday nights at 8pm, after 4WDTV) and they know their stuff.

So when are you going to see what it does down the quarter mile. emoticon

Re: Exhaust System Upgrades (aftermarket)


Di Filipo previously used a mild steel set-up/headers for the T30 xtrail, so it is nice to see the catch-up with the market and improve on their design.

I'd still be interested to see the proven gains of their systems as well as the cat. converter type they use, so we can make a comparison to other systems.

14KW gain as a result of a full exhaust system upgrade is less than expected, so maybe Darren needs to look at having one of the xtrails with the new system dynoed to get confirmed readings, as I believe the gains should be more than that.

Price-wise, the system is very attractive indeed.

Sorry, I should have added that the 14 pick up was with a header/cat only, not a full system, so the dyno before and after was only based on only the headers and cat added.

Tony, not yet ready to take on the Hi Octane X trail, just waiting for some Hiclones, looking to see if I can stuff 3 or 4 in there. emoticon

Well, the headers and high flow cat (what brand and specs?) form the bulk and main part of the exhaust system and the rest is pipes and resonators, so the gain provided is still low with those mods compared to an existing cat. back system that can provide 9KW gains by itself.

Do you or Di Filipo have the before and after dyno chart for us to look at?

Hiclones are a total waste of money. Read details HERE and reviews of 10 xtrail owners who tested them as part of a group-buy we had years ago.

Sorry about the Hiclones remark, just trying to be funny.

I don't have the dyno results, Darren may have them.

Drove the Xtrail this morning, and its the first time I have been able to give it a good try out. Very impressed with the added power, certainly more pick up after 4000 revs, nearly more fun to drive than my modified VY SS.

My rear muffler is only small, so it does get loud after 4000, but noise hasn't changed at cruising speeds that I have noticed.

Sorry I can't provide much in the way of tech info, but at the end of the day I'm very happy with the product as well as how much I spent on it.

AL.

More info. would have been good to have for comparison purposes for other members and to provide an alternative to an existing system set-up.

You being comfortable with it is all it matters to you of course and what counts at the end.

Re: Exhaust System Upgrades (aftermarket)


Hi Allen, I noticed above that your looking for a set of leather seats, there is a Nissan wreckers in Melbourne who have some available from an '05 ti. I don't know their web address as they are advertising through the Melbourne Trading Post but I can post the phone number for you if that's allowed by forum admin, otherwise pm me and I'll pass it on to you privately.
