That looks pretty decent.Yesterday i've got a new y-pipe and catback, all is 0.5" bigger and I can definitely can tell that performance increased notoriously, it breaks traction easier than before (time for better tires).
All piping, oval section, mufflers and resonator's brand is Vibrant, stainless steel.
Sound is very quiet at highway speeds, very deep at lower RPM. Not loud at all under 3000RPM. Also no more scratching on the y-pipe (because of lowering springs). My best purchase so far.
Video's sound quality doesn't represent how nice it sounds in person:
Thanks! That color is rare around here too. I have the factory struts still in there. Contemplating putting the the rear eibach springs in, but the factory's aren't bad.Looks very good! I don't see that colour often, there are just very few.
the streets are plagued with silver Altimas 🤣
What struts do you have in there?
I didn't consider the dual exhaust, I think there isn't enough room for it. It would be very nice to have it, I am curious about how would it sound, but going songle 3" is enough.Did you consider doing a true dual exhaust? I feel like there is enough room for a u-bend from the rear bank and enough space for 2 tubes down the tunnel.
Leave the stock springs, there isn't much improvement in my opinion if you lower the back, it comes very nice stock.Thanks! That color is rare around here too. I have the factory struts still in there. Contemplating putting the the rear eibach springs in, but the factory's aren't bad.
How much power do you think you gained with the exhaust work?
I keep having in my head thoughts of a true dual. X pipe in the middle, and Borla mufflers. See in this pic why I keep think dual 2.25 or 2.5 will fit? Not my Altima btw.I didn't consider the dual exhaust, I think there isn't enough room for it. It would be very nice to have it, I am curious about how would it sound, but going songle 3" is enough.
I’ve wondered that, too. And there are options like either wrapping the exhaust or jethot coating it.I'd be concerned about how close to the floor pan you'd have to position your pipes and the amount of heat transfered directly into the chassis and then the underpadding etc.
If all you are looking for are a few more HP's at redline...then a single fat pipe can be just as good as two smaller pipes...with the advantage of smoother idle and better torque at lower rpms thanks to 'scavenging' (using exhaust pulse pressure differneces to help pull air into other cylinders).
Doug, could you re-upload the pictures? How much clearance do you have with stock wheels? I'm planning to install M45 brakes but I changed my wheels and although they are still 17", they are a bit smaller than OEMs and I'm not sure if those calipers and rotors will fitFinished the Poor man's BBK
and the fronts (06 M45 dual pistons). Before and after
and yes...those are the 17x7.5 stock rims.
They don't look it in the pictures, but those dual piston calipers are monsters.
