Hi Tom . Its a bit of a personal choice thing with exhausts. I have the Amuse titanium and think it sounds great but others like louder exhausts. It depends on your budget also as mine cost over $3000 but it looks cool too

I have a V35 but my exhaust is:

 

Tomei Headers

Berk HFC's

Motordyne TDX2

 

And its pretty loud!! but if you are on a flat bit of road and take your foot off the pedal its surprisingly very quiet

If you do let me know mate, if you could PM me a rough price that would be great!

What's the reason for taking it off?

I spent ages making sure I got an exhaust that wouldn't end up sounding like a V6 Commodore, and ended up with the Invidia Gemini CBE. A few members on here are running the same system.

 

Here is a crap sound clip of mine, you can find heaps more on YouTube:

Is there anyone on the forum running the Stillen exhaust?  I have read lots that its very quiet until WOT, but cant seem to get someone to confirm it.

As others have said, exhaust note is really personal preference. Some people like that race car / Honda raspiness, some people prefer a deeper tone with more of a rumble. Then there's how much volume you want.

 

It's always best to hear several different exhausts and decide what you like.

 

 

If you're going to keep it NA, though, and you're willing to spend the readies then I'm going to guess that running any catback downstream of a set of long-tube extractors will be magic.

 



I'm not a massive fan of the Nismo catback but that sounds pretty epic. I don't know where you can get long tubes for RHD cars though. :(

I went through this a while ago and researched the heck out of it. I wanted something that sounded good but did not drone or rasp and I also wanted something fairly stealth and stock looking.  I was really about an increase in performacne more than anything else.  I settled on a Hi-Tech cat back as they are Australian made and dyno tested (check out their Website Hi-Tech Mufflers and read the reviews online everyone raves about it).  I am in Brisbane myself and I am trading the Z in a month or so on a family car so if you want to come and have a listen to it email me mrdcastelli @ gmail.com.  I have had really positive comments from Z owners and non-Z onwers.

 

To be honest if you really like the sound and performance I can part it out to you cheap (as I still have my stock exhaust and the dealer won't give me more on the trade for it), they are only $1,100 brand new and I would only be chasing half that (also I have only had it on the car for less than 1 year and 1000kms). I have it matched to a K&N induction and cold air box (also had for a year) and it sounds amazing (they actually send you a dyno chart with this aswell!!).  You can have that too it you want it or even if you want to have a listen.  I bought all these parts thinking I was going to bring the old girl back to her former glory but life anf amily got in the way :-(

Hey tommy I have a hitech exhaust which to me sounds fantasticcccc! I absolutely love it. There's one for sale on the forums at the moment. No drone at all. Can't tell it's there at cruising speed 100kmh. But gives a nice roar under hard acceleration. There is also a Fujitsubo on gumtree really cheap it's only 500$. Apparently they are extremely quiet and subtle. YouTube any of them most exhaust of posted on there. Good luck!

    • 370z Wheel choice – Australian market research - FYI
      By paracin · Posted
      After 2 months of market and forums research, I bought my new wheels – 19” Kiwamis. The following factors were considered: wheel size and spacers, quality, price and the supplier’s customer service. To determine the right size, I thoroughly studied 17 pages of “370z wheel fitment guide” on The370z forum and settled for 9.5 +25 and 10.5 +12, which should provide a flush fit without spacers or camber adjustment while accommodating larger tyres (if so inclined after suspension upgrade). Quality-wise, after considering some questionable 20” Taiwanese options like XXR ($1200+), Koya ($2400+), Vertini ($2800+ with 35% off), Rohana and Ferrada (both over $3K), I settled for a proper JDM option – Work Emotion Kiwami AHG (matte bronze), deep concave front and ultra deep concave rear. JDM Concept’s price is not only cheaper than the above, but also cheaper than Work USA. Regarding customer service, my first choice of wheels were Gram Lights or Weds but I didn’t get a quote from Aaron in nearly 4 weeks (he did apologise); Koya (Koya wheels), Venero (representing Ferrada wheels) and B.Boss (for Vossen VFS-1) NEVER even acknowledged receipt of my web inquiry; the main players on Princess highway between Tempe and Arncliffe, where I inquired in person, were totally disinterested, one even outright rude. (Is it my grey hair, I wonder, that causes people not to take me seriously in a Zed?) The shining stars of customer service are: Leonardy from JDM Concept, representing Work wheels, who replied to all my emails within an hour, often quicker. He specialises in Work wheels and is extremely helpful and accommodating (eg I picked up my wheels within 3 hours from committing to the purchase). George from Rollenso employed significant efforts to assist me with finding the right Lenso wheels. George is experienced, knowledgeable and helpful. I also ordered the tyres from George cheaper than Tempe, and that’s saying something.
    • Offset for Wheels to clear Brembos
      By Punked · Posted
      I think you are both a little confused. Lower offsets wheels (wheels closer to outside or poke from guard) will generally give you more brake clearance. However, some high offset wheels (wheels more sunken from outside of guard) will clear too. Hugely depends on the wheel/spoke shape and design. The factory wheels are 18x8+30 (or close?) and clear Brembo brakes but many aftermarket wheels in those specs will not clear. I run 19x10+15 and 19x11+15 on my 350Z and they clear by a mile. The same wheel as mine in a 18x8+20 probably wouldn't clear... You really need to try some wheels on your car....you will find many of the Japanese wheels are made to clear larger brakes (not always though)... https://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Wheel-Offset-Calculator# this is the best for fitment- won't help with your clearance issue though. Cheeeeeers
    • ESCL ekectronic steelring lock
      By dodgybugga · Posted
      If I remember correctly there was a recall here in Aus as well but only for certain series of that part number. I would demand to talk to the dealer principal rather than some service monkey that knows nothing but how to extract cash from loyal customers and demand the part be replaced (possibly costing labour which is fair) for a known faulty part that was subject to a nationwide recall. Search this forum for more info on the recall. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

      By peter a · Posted
      Ummmm !! Experienced the 'No start' and the orange key light.  2012 model 370Z. Tried the hammer trick, tried it again and again and again and eventually it released. Leave the accessory light on and removed the fuse. Car starts OK now. Quote from Nissan for a new ESCL(electronic Steering Control Lock) is $1,580.13 plus GST plus labour.

      Contact your local clutch specialist If you need to replace the flywheel that will really hurt - aftermarket flywheels are cheaper but also make unpleasant noise
