Bought 2.5" Fujitsubo Exhaust For $150


Recommended Posts

as the topic states today i bought a fujitsubo 2.5" cat-bak exhaust 2nd hand for $150 bought it locally from rolin imports in burleigh on the gold coast. i have some pics up and will install it this weekend.The exhaust is stamped fujitsubo and jasma. just wanted to know how much this exhaust would cost brand new? also some stories about the performance of the exhaust if youve installed it on your na skylines? as well as the sound of it (sound files if available).

p.s any tips on undoing the exhaust bolts?

thanks guys pics are attached (this will be installed on my r32 gts25)

hey mate. fujitsubo are a good exhaust. i got a video here

of mine with a 2.5inch fujitsubo cat back. there not cheap i know that so for 150 bucks you got a bargain. if you need to get the exhaust bolts off torque wrench or breaker bar something long that you can apply more force with. just make sure you dont strip the bolts

just measured the width of the pipe and it actually is 3" not 2.5" i was misinformed by rolin automotive. how will this affect the engine? ive heard it will drone a lot but i always have the music up so it doesnt matter.i will still put it on just need these q's answered first.

my standard cat has a 2" outlet hole with flange, the exhaust has a 3" inlet hole with flange, the bolt holes for the cat flange and the exhaust flange are the same (11cm apart from middle of bolt hole to middle of bolt hole) so im guessing this will fit right??

can i buy new exhaust flanges from supercheap?

p.s later on i will throw a turbo on my car so it saves me having 2 buy a 3" when i do.YAY!

thanks again

sorry for the long post

well i take that back the jealousy then.

how will it affect the engine?

- it will be a pig to drive

- absolutely gutless at low rpm

- the sound will be like you said droney

- you will use more fuel

- more power at a higher rpm

flange sizes should fit, if not just re-weld a new set on at your local exhaust shop.

don't think supercheap carry flanges.

that is the silliest thing i've ever heard... it's not like you're doing any favors to your wallet by getting your exhaust out of the way.

the increase in fuel, emissions and power loss may annoy you long before you begin your conversion. but each to their own.

just keep in mind that the amount of kw you have is not an indication of how quick/well performing your car is.

You loose backpreassure due to not having enough volumetric vacume (WOOO! I USED IT EUGENE! :D )

I silencer will do nothing besides add weight and make your car slightly quieter..

Only way you can get ur back preasure back.. is.. go to a smaller zorst..

The exhaust sounds sweet, it is drony and i have lost my bottom end but my top end torque feels great, will post up an audio file of it soon, wat should i use to record it?

hmm is the opposite true? meaning that if I have a 2.5inch and i put a silencer in, it won't cause it to be restrictive again?

cheers
