One of the items I need for rego is a new exhaust.  I've read a few threads with people on here opting for the Fujitsubo rear muffler with the twin pipes etc.  I'm considering going the whole hog and ordering the entire system rather than getting a custom exhaust bent up (figure the price will not be all that different).  Thinking I'll order from Nengun or go through Jesse Streeter to order direct from Fujitsubo.

https://translate.go...0546&edit-text=

Anyone had any experience with these ?  I note their page states that it only fits up with their headers which makes sense given the twin pipes (presuming I would need to get a flange made up if I wanted to fit to my existing headers so it might make sense to just replace the headers as well).

Engine is stock L24 at the moment but my method is that anything I need to replace I am replacing with what I would ultimately like to put in the car.

I don't have any experience with these is that your main concern? But I believe they are a quality item and I like the dual exhaust look (that the 432's and I believe 240zg's also had).

If you're looking for a performance set up though you may want to consider Peter Mac or Les Collins. I know that when Peter Mac saw my dual exhaust set up (custom) on my 72 240z he mentioned I'm probably loosing power and the dual exhaust is an 'old school' approach. I'm not sure what performance gains (if any) the Fujitsubo offers?

Roberto had a custom system built by Peter Mac and Les Collins.


Sounds awesome! Of course Roberto's had a bit more work done to his motor and that cam lope is just awesome sauce ;)

Thanks as always !!  Yep I didn't even think of speaking to one of the engine builders about my long term plans but that makes sense as being the best course of action!!

Engine I was thinking James Flett/MIA or making the trip to VIC for Peter Mac or Les Collins so I'll give one of them a bell and have a chat.

If you believe their ads it gives massive gains right across the rev band - ha ha ha  :D

When I had my Evo 8 I bought a Fujitsubo cat back system and with regards to fitment, it was perfect! Everything matched the factory hangers and went in without any issues.

I have seen these exhausts floating around Yahoo! Auctions.

If you wanted to find 1 cheaper, but sometimes it's nice to get something shiny and new.. There's a song about that...

I'm sure I saw someone on here purchase one a few years ago on their build thread? It was the full system and headers.

'Dallas' comes to mind but I cant see it on his build thread.

Do you use Import Monster if you're buying on Yahoo? I will admit I found a few on there before but the shiny and new factor was a part of my thought process! ! :-[

Rudolf purchased a Fujitsubo exhaust, as per the below thread:

http://www.viczcar.c...c,12510.15.html

Oh, and another +1 for Jesse Streeter, very easy to deal with.

Yeah I'd read Rudolph's post and noted he only got the rear section.  If I go ahead I'm thinking I'll just get the whole thing.  I like the 432 exhaust look so maybe appearance will win out over performance (hey it's not going to be a track car - just a mildly fun streeter hopefully)!  Still considering it.

Found it http://www.viczcar.c...6.html#msg96706

I have a memory like a steel trap when it comes to random useless information  ;D

Haven't seen him active recently though, maybe try PM him, it may be fitted already.

I bought the same system as Dallas' that Gareth linked above. I don't think it's a fujitsubo item though because it splits around the diff unlike the fujitsubo items where the pipes stay together.

I mated my system with a 'Trust' manifold which holds the exhaust a little close to the transmission tunnel which will need 'massaging'.. Other than that, the system sounds awesome and is tucked very high up.

Shiny won out - New complete exhaust system plus the twin pipe headers ordered from Fujitsubo (via Jesse Streeter).

Been looking at 432 photos and made the call that these fit the bill for the old school build up plan.

Hahaha, well done. I like the 432 style also. Don't see many Z's in AU, let alone many with that config.
