T30 Exhaust Replacement - Toyo stainless steel
The NISMO T30 Exhaust
Mmm that is what the T30 X-Trail should have as stock, not the huge rear silencer box it has got, what was Mr Toi thinking ?
Well in the UK I had not been able to source a NISMO box and its big bucks to buy and import. The NISMO was just going to have to wait till I won the lottery. I had only found one site offering a possible solution, Jetex. Anything else sensible for off road use was far to expensive, you would not want to get it muddy
While the custom build was appealing I researched on both the UK and the excellent Aus X-Trail forum I could not find an answer for an off the shelf solution that suited my needs....
Searching through photos of various designs online I found pictures of a stainless steel Toyo Sports rear silencer advertised for the petrol T30 on ebay. It did not say where they were made and I had never heard of the brand. I phoned the suppliers in the UK to get measurements and they were not very helpfull, so I sent them an email and they did confirm it should fit the YD 2.2 Series I eventually. :biggrin:
I took the plunge and ordered one....
Stock compared to the Toyo stainless exhaust.
Rear with stock back view and side view. Note rear bumper protector removed on the back view.
Stainless exhaust fitted again rear view and side view.
While the actual exit pipe remains in almost the same postion as the OE unlike the NISMO silencer, the side view shows how much extra clearance it gives.
As I said I am not sure where these are made, however at £90.00 including delivery I figure it is not a bad price. Just be aware that Toyosports communication is bad, they don't reply to emails quickly.
I will give some feedback on this mod when it has been running for a little while.
