A sport muffler and a small hotdog will certainly make it growl.

Re:


I honestly wouldnt have it louder Scott, I was only free reving to around 3500rpm when you heard it or driving at low speeds. In gear over 3500 rpm is when it opens right out. My wife drives normally and I can pick the sound of her coming home at night from any other car in the area as it hums when it backs off. When you step on it the exy definatly growls especially on the manual side of the gearbox.

Happy to take you for a run next time we meet up or if your down this way so you can get a better idea of what the drive difference is.

Would love a excuse to take a run down your way and catch up for a lunch at the workers club or a coffee somewhere.

Love to see all the other members as well from your area too.

Maybe a meet and greet should be in order emoticon

Regards Scot

Re:


Took a thud on the rear end last Sunday and finally spotted the damage, a slightly squashed tail trim on the passengers side of the pipe where it pushed up to the rear underbody (take a photo to night, superficial damage). The stock exhaust would have hit much harder as it has the muffler in the area i bumped but hangs further down. The thickness and quality of the stainless pipe also contributed to only the trim squashing and not the whole pipe.

Re: Hi-Tech Cat. Back System (T31 CVT Petrol)


Is there an update on when the header and hi-flow cat converter will be available?

And are the hangars already welded, so I could actually install the pipe from the second converter back thru to the twins myself?

Is a dremel the proper tool for trimming the bumper and does somebody have a step by step on any of these procedures?

I found (what I believe) a good deal on a 2009 X-Trail with 46,000 kilometers and also want to look at my 2007 Corolla as a trade. emoticon

Hi Scott,

The headers and hi-flow cat. which will be part of the Full Exhaust System upgrade will be done when the current T31 owners are closer to having their factory warranty expire, as this type of modification with the headers involved does impact on the factory warranty.

The hangers are already welded to the system for a DIY type of installation of course.

Yes, a dremel is exactly what's needed to trim the rear bumper for the twins system and a template will be sent for this purpose.

Re: Hi-Tech Cat. Back System (T31 CVT Petrol)


The mount for the second pipe lines up with the towbar mounts in the chassis opposite the last mount on the exhaust, the other mounts line up and reuse the old mounting rubbers. The install is easy enough and only basic tools are needed, I did it by myself but a second person would have been handy. The only modification to the body of the car is the minor cutting.

My warranty expired last week so I am interested in the headers soon, Jalal. Can you send me a price for just the headers only please and let me know if the car will be needed.

Well, you're a free man now LOL emoticon

The Full Exhaust System will include not only the headers, but the high flow stainless steel cat. converter which will replace your factory ceramic core cat. converter that is part of the manifold/headers and yes, the car will definitely be required for 2 days at least to fabricate the headers and also the pipe section to join with the existing cat. back system.

The development of the full exhaust system will most likely take place at the Hi-Tech factory in Bathurst, so anyone volunteering for this should make themselves and their exy available for 2 days and on the 3rd day we need to do a dyno run in Sydney.

The cost of this to the 1st volunteer will be the cost of materials only, which means you will save greatly on the cost of labour and the dyno tune-up.

Re: Hi-Tech Cat. Back System (T31 CVT Petrol)


Has anyone ever actually tried bolting on a Spec V header to see if it would work.

For me, I could get much better prices on Sentra parts from the U.S. than AUS products, mainly due to shipping costs.

Although, I'm sure I would still have to go the HI TECH route from cat back to twins. As it's already proven and simple to install.

BTW what method of shipping is normally used for international purchases?
