  1. Berk decats now sold, just the Cobra rear muffler left
  2. Hi there, which parts? Y pipe has just sold. Could post the decats for sure, would have to work out postage. Mid and backbox are quite large so might be problematic, would have to get a cost for it.
  3. I went with the Tanabe Medalion plus AAM Y pipe, it's definitely more civilised on cold start while still having a bit of bark when I'm being more free with the pedal. Zero drone too. Whilst I'm sad I don't sound like a racecar now, at least nobody will be complaining about me and prompting awkward questions about lack of cats.
  4. Did not know that! If they definitely fit I will post that part at least in the 370z parts section.
  5. Hi all, Having just had a shiny new system fitted in order to keep the racket from the neighbours down, I have various parts for sale, collection preferred. These came from an HR 350z which will affect decat compatibility. Berk decats / test pipes @ £90 - SOLD HKS Y Pipe - Sleeve is fraying (previous owner issues) but the flexible joints are intact and have not been scraped during my ownership, comes with used set of gaskets @ £100 - SOLD Cobra Mid Pipe SOLD Cobra Rear Box (NO MID PIPE) - Not quiet. With my decats I think it isn't too bad at low revs, but sounds like a racecar above maybe 3000, love the sound! Expect some drone in 6th between 55 and 65 unless you are running cats of some kind. Rough welds where alternative tips have been welded on by a previous owner, never caused any issues @ £60 Any questions just let me know =)
  6. It's certainly the cheaper option, but if it's old and past its best I think I'm better off replacing the lot rather than spending on an interim measure then having to spend on a full new exhaust eventually anyway If your post had been a day earlier I may have had to revise my thinking as the Grip is a shiny piece of kit, but as it stands I've pulled the trigger on the Tanabe Medallion Touring and the AAM Y pipe From what I can tell from research and having spoken to some people the Tanabe is a quality item with no drone and a deep, refined sound at an acceptable level of noise when driving under regular throttle even with the decats, and from the videos I've seen it sounds great at WOT, so it's hopefully the balance I'm looking for!! Thanks all for your input and advice, I had it narrowed to the Tanabe and the Invidia at the end
  7. Hello all =) One of the exhaust options I am looking at goes from 2.5" ART pipe outlet diameter to 70mm (approx 2.75") mid-pipe inlet diameter. Most of the Y pipes from the main exhaust parts manufacturers that I am seeing go from 2.5" to 3". How detrimental is going from a 3" Y pipe outlet to a 2.75" mid-pipe inlet? I'm guessing that it is sub-optimal and will interrupt exhaust flow to an extent, but I have no idea how big a deal this is.
  8. I'd be replacing the rear box for that as that's the only silencer / muffler. Between that and the steel mesh on one side of the Y pipe wearing I'm just thinking it would be better to replace the lot with something new that is going to last and is better suited to the reality of where I currently live, plus get rid of the drone.
  9. It's a little late for cats as they are no longer on the car and it is mapped to not have them I think the majority of my noise however is down to other exhaust components and their age. I guess I will find out soon enough when I make a decision between one of the above 2 options! If it doesn't work then I will have to look at HFCs maybe, but I don't particularly want to have wasted my money on ARTs ^_^
