SouthSide Performance’s Mammoth 102mm Exhaust for Nissan GT-R

March 12th, 2010

When a big exhaust just isn’t enough, when you need to make maximum possible horsepower, and when you need to do all that and wake up people in the tri-county area you might want to check out SSP’s new mammoth 102mm exhaust.

Perfect for the track GT-R, this exhaust features 102mm diameter mandrel bent 304 grade stainless main section which branches into dual 76mm high flow mufflers on each side and finally into quad 127mm exhaust tips.

The guys use it on their record breaking drag GT-R so it’s certainly proven it can support the horsepower. It retails at $2,999.

COBB Tuning Release Stainless Midpipes for Nissan GT-R

December 20th, 2009

COBB Tuning have completed yet another addition to their lineup just days after announcing their Intake Hose Kit for the GT-R. This time it’s a range of 3.5″ stainless steel midpipes for the GT-R which are built to the typical top quality finish of other COBB Tuning products.

The midpipes are constructed from 304 grade stainless steel and are tig welded and the flex sections are internally lined for extra durability. The primary pipe diameter is 2x 3″ which feeds into a single 3.5″ pipe downstream.

The catless version predictably deletes the two secondary catalytic converters on the OEM version while the catted version features two fixed high flow cat coverters to keep the exhaust nice and street legal.

The guys at COBB have seen some decent gains from this midpipe and have published the dyno charts using this really cool online dyno graph tool.

Head on over to the link below to check out just how much extra power they can squeeze out from just this simple to bolt up part…

Zele Performance Release Type-1 Titanium Exhaust and Titanium Midpipes

October 9th, 2009

zele-titanium-muffler-type1-01

It’s been a full year, almost exactly to the day, since we last had an update on the Zele Performance Type-1 FZ-Titanium muffler for the R35 Nissan GT-R. Zele have this week finally announced the release of the exhaust which is targetted specifically to those chasing maximum performance and weight saving while expecting the absolute best quality fit and finish.

The Type-1 FZ-Titanium exhaust is a single side exit exhaust which saves weight and allows the user to install transmission or differential coolers in the vacant area opposite. It’s fully manufactured in Japan from titanium for durability and lightness and tips the scales at just 6.5 kgs (vs. 17kgs of the OE item).

The main pipe diameter is 89.1mm which splits into two 120mm exit tubes via a pair of resonators. If you guessed this exhaust might be a signifant upgrade in the sound department, you guessed right and you can check out the sound in the video we shot @ Zele headquarters in Yokohama earlier in the year.

The price for the exhaust is 348,000 yen in Japan.

Next up is the Zele FZ-Titanium front pipes. These high flow cat fitted front pipes keep your car street legal and emissions friendly while improving exhaust flow. They weigh less than half the standard front pipes as well at 5.2kgs (vs. 13.3kgs for the stock ones).

These front pipes go for 248,000 yen in Japan.

Hit up the links below to get more information and find your nearest Zele Performance dealer. Zele will also be attending SEMA 2009 this year in Las Vegas from 3rd – 6th of November. Visit them at their booth.

AAM Competition Parts Lineup for Nissan GT-R: Part 1 – Exhaust

April 7th, 2009

gtrmidpipe_1

Altered Atmosphere (AAM) has recently unveiled quite a lineup of desirable high performance tuning products for the Nissan GT-R platform. First up lets take a look at their exhaust range.

We have a pair of T-304 grade stainless midpipes to choose from, both featuring a cat-less design. A resonated version which increases exhaust flow on the GT-R while saving weight but eliminates annoying cabin drone. There’s also a non-resonated design for those after lowest possible weight with the least exhaust flow restriction possible. The resonator fitted mid-pipe weighs in at just 17.6lbs, a 12.4lbs weight saving over the OE item and the non-resonator version is lighter again. Tested on the dyno, these midpipes are good for between 15 and 22hp at the wheels. They’re priced at $795 for resonated for $645 for non-resonated.

Next up is a pair of T-304 grade stainless turbine outlet/dump pipes for the GT-R. Featuring either catless or street legal high flow cat version. One of the first such designs we’ve seen on the market outside Japan, these high flow cat dump pipes are great for those wanting to boost performance while keeping emissions in check. These are priced at $1,495 but a catless version is also available for those looking for maximum performance without compromise which is just $995.

Sound clips of all AAM exhaust products are available online at their website linked below.
