Zele International: FZ-Titanium Exhaust Type-1 Prototype Update

October 7, 2008 Comments off

Less is more is how the old saying goes and for a circuit spec exhaust where weight reduction is key this Zele International FZ Titanium Muffler Type-1 is just the ticket. Taking a different approach to some manufacturers in creating the ultimate in circuit spec mufflers, Zele is proud to launch this Type-1 exhaust soon.

One of the great benefits of this design over the competition is compatibility with multiple rear mounted coolers. This single sided exhaust frees up your right side for a DSG transmission cooler while the removal of the large standard center mounted mufflers also frees up the centre rear grille to mount Zele International’s rear differential cooler.

When we asked Kamata-san, head of Zele and chief of design direction, about it he spoke about the challenges at making an original GT-R dry carbon hood while overcoming certain difficulties and meeting the goals of a lightweight top quality product.

Still we’re pretty confident the guys can figure it out. In the same vein, Zele have some nice surprises in store for upcoming motor shows but we can’t give too much away now.

In other news, Zele is wrapping up the development and tuning of their suspension setup which they recently spent a day with Eiji “Tarzan” Yamada testing at Ebisu Circuit. This is due to be released along with the racing FZ-Titanium Muffler Type1 in the coming months.
