Best sounding turbo outlet pipe (RB20/25)

Recommended Posts

I’m fitting an rb25 turbo on my RB20 and am wondering what the best sounding outlet pipe is. I’ve looked at the tomei, but I’m not really looking at spending 300 usd for an outlet pipe. What else do you guys think? Also looking at downpipes aswell.

Outlet pipes ( to intercooler?) don't make a sound. Find someone with an RB25DET and copy their set up with stock (second hand) gear. Yes get a three inch downpipe.

Oh you americans.

Doesn't matter what 'outlet pipe' you use, it's attached to an RB20 so going to sound good.

What you want is an R31House exhaust manifold.

That's a R31house takoashi MAX manifold.... they are by far the nicest looking manifold for an RB and now long discontinued for the new version which is a direct replica of the gts-r manifold 😍 

But yeah anyways...I have a gtsr manifold that's unfortunately been re-flanged and had a gate welded to it then removed and repaired at some stage....Cost me a packet too.

Would looks amazing if it wasn't that terrible chrome colour 🤢

Sidenote: My manifold sounds absolutely amazing but i cannot provide evidence as a truck crashed into the car the second day of driving it and now looking like its going to be written off :(

They're made from stainless just like the original gts-r takoashi and would discolour almost instantly with the first few drives and heat cycles. There's actually a picture somewhere I saw last week on the R31house owners blog of the ver3 test manifold after it was test fitted and ran for first time on the his R31 and it's turned a nice heat treated purple/brown/blue - ish colour...
