FX35 Nismo Exhaust

    the nismo exhaust comes with a Y-pipe but it wont fit my FX because i have AWD. My question is...will it bolt upto a stock exhaust of a RWD car ie. FX, G35, 350Z? because if it will, i can sell. and now i go search to see if i can find the answer myself:wub:

    huh? I don't get it, is this a question? Are you looking to GET the Nismo exhaust or sell? I'm confused...

    all you need is the g35 extension and you need to extend the tips. it will bolt right up to the stock y-pipe or aftermarket. i hope to be ordering my nismo exhaust soon too

    hmmmmm, actually with my experience... the extension pushed the Y-pipe straight into the AWD housing... The muffler shop ended NOT using the extension but made modifications to fit (basically, extensions on the "Y" end)

    are you saying that the Nismo Y-pipe will work with AWD FX??? because if thats true... =)

    and i sort of made a spelling mistake...let me fix it in BOLD

    *EDIT* so i can just get my y-pipe extended instead of buying one of those extenders and it will work!! and obviously get the tips extended

    oh sorry i guess i typed wrong, but the nismo y-pipe wont fit unless you modify it. one member with an AWD FX has modded the nismo y-pipe so that it fits (also got rid of the g35 extension).

    i would just stick with the stock Y pipe because getting one of the others for $400 (UTR or that other company) makes the price of the exhaust so much more...

    I believe Krayzie's whole plan is as follows:

    Purchase entire Nismo cat-back exhaust (includes Y-pipe, mid-pipe and muffler, with an added G35 extension where needed)... but since the only Y pipe that fits the AWD is the UTR, he wanted to know if the Nismo Y would bolt right up to stock exhaust so he can sell just the Y to someone looking to upgrade JUST the Y.

    Since it was advised he could just extend the double ended side of the Y instead of extending after the Y with the G35 extension piece, he will now be looking into doing this so that he can keep the Nismo Y with the rest of the Nismo cat-back setup.

    Am I right Krayzie? ;)

    And how come I never heard of making another Y work by extending it out instead of using the G35 extension :( Brilliant idea...

    that's basically the route I went...


    not the prettiest work... but it works (it was a Saturday, and the shop was closing, I was far away from home, and we had to figure out what to do with going around the AWD housing). Here, you can see the extension made (lighter color, that's NOT stainless steel), without using the G35 extension

    lol... absolutely NO G35 extension whatsoever. The video describes it perfectly, cut the Y pipe after the cat flanges, weld in a length of pipe on each side the same length as the G35 extension would do, and call it a day.

    Sorry to hear 'bout the Honda as well. It is funny lol, if that's your sister in the picture it looks like she's trapped in there hah...

    did you try West Covina Nissan? They were runnin' a special, I know they (supposedly) had 5 left back when I got mine... but maybe they got another batch in... and perhaps is still charging less than retail... I think I ended up paying only something like $860

    Hey just bumping this back up. i was looking to order a nismo exhaust soontime, i have just been msging some shops that ive dealt with to see if theyll do the tip extension plus install...but i had one question.

    i was reading one of the PM's the doc send me a few months ago and he said he had to extend his mid-pipe by 3 inches...did anyone else with the nismo have to do that too?

    Brown, everyone with an FX will have to extend the tips 35 and 45 alike. I extended mine about 7 inches. But others have done less. Maybe Dave, Ken and Will can chime in and say what measurements they used.

    i know about the tips, but i am wondering about the midpipe extension. your PM said you extended your midpipe by 3 inches but i dont recall anyone else having to do that :confused:

    Sorry, I misread your post brown. But I had to do it because of my 45. trainerKen also has a 45 but did his install a bit different then me and he did not use the G35 extension piece or the utr y-pipe so that may be the reason. As for the others they all have 35's so it was just a easy bolt on for them.

    Cant tell you how much it was extended by, cuz I cut it differently than everyone else, & extended with new piping from the can.
