Re:


Could be the dpf cleaning itself? You said it happens when "cruising", by this do you mean highway driving? Regardless of what it is, I doubt it's related to/being caused by the exhaust, it's probably just more audible now because of it. My guess would be something to do with the 20k service?

Re: Hi-Tech Cat. Back System (T31 Manual Diesel)


Hey Ian,

By cruising I meant driving at any constant speed then add soon as I put a bit of pressure on the gas it drones. It isn't related to the 20k service as it happened before and after it. I realised it can happen when I drive hard through the gears as well. Very odd.

Re:


Aram and I have never heard that happening before (why specifically once a week?).

Also, the cat.back exhaust system has no relation to your fuel consumption either, as it is fully dependant on how hard you push the accelerator, the type of fuel you are using and where you are driving.

If you have any concerns about the components of your system, please get in touch with Hi-Tech, as you do have 10 years guarantee on your system.

Re:


I don't want to been seen here as a total prophet of doom and gloom, as I know that it has been posted here that the Hi-Tech Cat. Back System exhaust upgrade will not affect Nissans new car warranty, but do we know this for sure?

Considering the claimed increase of power and torque when modifying the exhaust system, could not Nissan claim that these increases might overload the design of the engine/drivetrain? I think that most of us would be aware that if a car manufacturer can wriggle out of any warranty claim, they will give it their best shot.

If it is claimed that this mod will not affect new car warranty, I think that it would be in the best interests of new car owners to get Nissan to put it in writing that the warranty (especially the engine/drivetrain) will be unaffected by this modification. Repairs to these types of components are very expensive.

Just a little food for thought for new car owners with existing warranties.

Re:


We will let you investigate that with Nissan Australia and let us know Greg emoticon

The only thing Hi-Tech and this forum can tell you for sure is that the cat. back system is not removing any crucial components of your exhaust system and it is only you are only changing pipes and a muffler.

It is upto you and any car owner to weigh this up and see how it could impact on your warranty (if at all) or if you wish to seek any written guarantees from Nissan which they will never provide anyway.

Nissan and any other car manufacturer have to prove beyond any reasonable doubt how such a modification impacted on any component of the car and it needs to be backed-up by engineering facts and figures, not just because the customer service person on the phone said so.

Re: Hi-Tech Cat. Back System (T31 Manual Diesel)


OK Jalal, when I pick up my new T31 this coming week I will run it past them.

If they say "yes, Nissan will won't have a problem with this mod (or any other mods also)", I will ask them if they would care to put it in writing. I think I already know what their answer will be.

I will keep you posted about the outcome of my enquiry regarding the warranty issue.

Re:


I also know their answer regardless if you ask them about an exhaust system upgrade or an aftermarket bulb. You just need to be realistic about it sometimes or just sit and wait until your factory warranty expires if you're worried about loosing it that much.

Yes, I would hate to jeopardise a new car warranty.

Fair enough then. That's your decision and your choice.
