XS-POWER R35 GTR 3.5 Stainless Cat Back Exhaust Nissan GT-R SSAC DV8
2009 Nissan GT-R with
XS-Power Non Resonated Mid pipe. 3" to 3.5"
No other engine modifications.
Exhaust cost $850 from
Relentless_Performance on Ebay. Lower priced competitor was M2 with what
seems to be an exact replica ($650). I had one and sent it back, because it
was shipped in bad shape. Also, mufflers didn't have the burn like the
Nearest more expensive competitor, is Tanabe for $1700+
Direct ship FedEx from China, packaged very well.
Blue on tips seems weak, because although packaged well, they still had a
bit of blue rub off. Not nearly as bad as the M2.
The outside tailpipes merge needed some cleanup work. Very little but,
grinding needed (Performance Picky).
Merge into the mufflers was well blended and already cleaned up, as were
both other flanges.
The blue look on the mufflers is awesome from the rear grill view.
The fade on the tips are hardly noticeable once installed. There is
however, a slight lowered appearance to the right side tail pipes. It
should be easy enough to correct by manipulating the extra long hanger rods
on the muffler.
If XS-Power can fix the weak blue tint, clean up all merges and make sure
visually everything lines up, this is the ultimate GT-R Exhaust for the money.
I was told they also offer this Exhaust in a stainless only finish.
Installation was a breeze. Nissan made the GT-R very easy to take apart.
After the stocks Exhaust tips are
removed, then the stock muffler, this Exhaust goes in directly. Smaller and lighter
overall than stock.
No fitment issues, all parts supplied to plug and play.
It sounds bassy at idle, but hardly sounds different or even
quieter(cleaner) going fast vs stock(great!).
Between 2-3kRPM cruising, there is a low drone, but it all concentrated in
the rear. It doesn't bother me, but the stereo drowns it out. A resonated
mid-pipe would be the ultimate solution for picky buyers.
Overall, with the negatives, the performance aspect of 3.5 in cat-back that
sounds like this, for the cost is unbeatable in my book.
Thanks for watching.
Lexus IS-F at Atco Raceway (vs. Camaro SS)
Driving my car at Atco raceway for the first time in NJ. I wound up
getting a 12.979 for the 1/4 mile during my third try and was going
(trapped) 110mph, vs. the Camaro at 12.7 something and
going about 103 I believe. I was catching up! :-P His car definitely was
fast though and I had a lot of fun.

Obsidian Black 2011 Lexus IS-F Rolling - Stock Wheels/Tires
a video of my new '11 Lexus IS-F. This is a little view of how hit looks
driving down the street on the stock 19" BBS rims and tires. I plan on
upgrading them soon to black 20's with a nice deep dish and offset. For
now this is how it looks. So far i have only tinted the windows.

Lexus LFA Clears It's Throat, And Gets BUSTED...
Well you wanted more of the Lexus LFA, I was asked by many if I could get
video of the LFA's launch control, more reving, and faster driving, so that's what we did. Got
it to 168MPH!
We also paid for it also by getting pulled over and slapped with a pretty
hefty ticket. But.. It still turned out to be a fun day. Think the driver
will get the ticket lowered in court?
Elattrache Photography was also there for the filming and he got some
AMAZING photos of the LFA.
I highly recommend you check out his photos at
