    Can someone tell me if the 03-06 Fx's have a different exhaust layout from an 07? I looked underneath my Fx today and I noticed it was a little different. Can someone help me out with this?

    Thanks!

    What did you notice that looked different? The costs to change stuff like that is a lot so I would think they would change as little as possible to keep profit margins up.

    for one, the hanger in the back of the exhaust on the stock points towards the front of the engine and on the nismo points to the left. Also, the pipe from the Y pipe seems a little off and for all who knows makes a big difference. I should've taken a picture before I posted so that I can illustrate it a little better. I was just wanted to know if they did change it or if anyone knows of any change.

    I knew I shouldve taken a pic but I didnt have my camera when I brought it to the shop.

    I got it from gq6967 and I dont believe he has a tow hitch.

    I'm a picture person so I went thru my pics.

    The orientation of the metal hanger is not too big of a deal. If I remember correctly one of the rubber hangers is like this.

    And the other one the holes are not in the same direction, the main thing is that the hangers are in the correct location.

    UPDATE --- Sorry for the late post fellas. My mechanic was able to bend the hanger towards the front of the FX and everything else fell into place. I will post pic of the new drop :) and the sound clip of the exhaust as well. Thanks everyone for your help esp. Rookie for the pics ^^ which I showed my mechanic and he said " dayymmmm, that's some hot a$$ Sh$%!!!!".

    Rookie,

    You use these Nismo hangers? They say they're stiffer than OEM exhaust hangers, just wondering if you had any feed back if you used them. They're about $13/piece so not cheap. I'm guessing these are pretty universal to any exhaust. I took off one of my OEM hangers and there is a lot of give, would like to stiffen it up.
