Hi Everyone,


I just wanted to test the waters with this idea first before jumping in too deep. I plan on making a custom exhaust system for the 370z (once I have a 370z that is) as I have some experience building stainless systems for other marques.


I have always enjoyed building and fabricating my own parts and through the learning process have developed useful skills that I would love to share and hopefully benefit people on this forum.


Time will tell how things pan out and I dont want to get anyones hopes up but the dream is to make my some of my own systems and then who knows where it might lead!


Some of my work to date..

Wow - good skills! :clap:


In the very early days when I wanted to change the exhaust there was a choice of 2.  I looked at getting someone to make me an exhaust but it never happened in the end.  It would be great to see what can be done! :)

I will most likely have a stock dyno run performed at my local Rolling road so I have a basemark to compare to. Then I can give you guys some HP gains over stock with my own system on my own car..  This may ofcourse be a few months away although it would be great to get something sorted through the summer. :)

omg no mufflers! That Volvo sounds like a Spitfire (just to be clear, I mean a Supermarine Spitfire, not a Triumph Spitfire).


I reckon you could make a 370Z V6 sound like it SHOULD sound. Can't wait to see/hear what you can do to one.




Talking about Spitfires - and apologising for taking the thread off-topic for a second - and warning of a bit of swearing at the end - have a look at this...
