Top Secret Exhaust – Completed and Photographed

September 25, 2008 Comments off

Regular readers will remember when we featured the latest titanium exhaust out of Top Secret back in August. The guys have been working hard since then to bring it from prototype to production and managed to keep all the promised features along the way.

Yep that includes the electronically controlled valve which gives you control of the exhaust note. Kit comes with the exhaust, controller and two remote keyfobs to actuate the exhaust valve. When closed the exhaust is louder than standard but not obnoxiously so at 94dB. When the exhaust valve is opened however it manages up to 120dB by opening the left exhaust outlet up without the final muffler.

Price is about 420,000 yen in Japan plus any applicable shipping, tax and installation. The exhaust is due to be released real soon.

Import Tuner Magazine: Top Secret R35 GT-R

August 11, 2008 Comments off

I hadn’t posted anything on this article and then a reader wrote in with a link the other day to remind me. Import Tuner magazine wrote this article a little while back about the original Top Secret Titanium coloured R35 GT-R.

Most of the article is not news but these photos taken at Top Secret’s workshop in Chiba are great. Too bad they’re not in high resolution. Anyone from Import Magazine reading? I think it’s time to send some of these in high res our way!

Check out our other stories on Top Secret too while your here.

Thanks to reader advan for the link.

Top Secret R35 GT-R Titanium Exhaust

August 9, 2008 Comments off

Top Secret, one of the best and most famous tuning workshops out of Japan are finishing up their titanium exhaust system with a difference for their R35 GT-R. In their warehouse sized workshop in Chiba just outside Tokyo they’ve come up with a something a few guys have been waiting for.

So the unique thing here is that there are two exits for exhaust gasses. Ordinarily the exhaust gas flows through the right hand side, out the muffler. This is relatively quiet (for a fat titanium exhaust that is). If you decide you need more noise or better flow you can open a butterfly valve to the second, no muffler exhaust outlet.

More pics after the jump.
