There will come a time, Rene, when you'll want things to be nice and quiet and that'll happen sooner than you expect ;)
When in doubt - increase boost.

just to ask, would this be because of the annoying sounds or doest it refer to law wise "its too loud"?if its because it's too loud, i had to ref my car and the hks was on, referee didnt say a thing about my exhaust.

awesome vid! how'd you get the camera up in the top of the overpass?! :shock:

overall, i love the way the exhaust looks. i SO want piping that way (yes, conan i realized the angle came from the pipes. a "bent" muffler would look awesomely wack). but...HKS is fairly expensive and i don't think theyd sell me just the piping, would they? i'd like to stick with my N1, thanks much...

Thanks mate. The sides are not that steap, so my mate climbed up the 'wall' there. We used a tripod in most of the shots.. 8)

Conan, it's not too loud to my tastings, quite a subtile low rumble. Untill the WG opens.. :D

I got the shirt from eBay a long time ago, iirc they still have them for sale now and then. One of the few with genuine looking logo's instead of wrong sized copies. The exhaust goes over the rear crossmember, so fitting this needs to be done on a lift otherwise you can't twist the muffler enough downwards to get it over the member.

that's odd. i checked out a website that had the regular hi-power exhaust, and it looked fairly straight, not bent enough to go above the rear CM.

....i would really love just the end section of this thing... :roll:
idk what to do, because my exhaust guy said he wasn't able to angle it that way. :x would you happen to have any insight on how to do it, given the proper eqmpt/tools?

Very possible, but was that a 185 exhaust pictured? Other cars might have less bends in the piping?

Check out the pic above, the support bars at the end of the muffler are longer so the tip will point up a bit, I guess the same technique is used to let the tip point to the side too, different lengths.. :shrug:

Excellent video!
ST165, then ST165, then ST185, then ST165.

Yes I've been there.

meurz, i also noticed that the support bars are pointing in the opposite direction alltogether. not sure how this affects the fitment, though....
my bad about the straight ish exh. pictured on the site. it should've clicked earlier that it wasnt the one for our cars. :doh:

i suppose i can make some toy stuff to mess around with, seeing where the support bars actually need to be welded to create this effect. HKS definitely wouldn't sell that last section...
