He's not going to find anything search this forum about Australian content! :headshake: It's all new...we've just started!

I have a Hi-tech that you can get from Lambros for around 1700 bucks installed. They are based in Sydney but ship everywhere.

There was a vid going around with scathing's car I believe. It sounded like a good reproduction of what you should expect for sound.

As for gains. You'll get a minor increase all around with a massive lift up high. The avg gain i've seen is around 16rwkw.

yeh Steve you will find most aussies have the hitech or the Nismo system...

CAR (CAR2 from the old forums) was kind enough to let me take his hi-tech equipped Z for a quick lap around the suburbs the other week.. sounded daaaaaamn nice, a lot nicer and louder than stock when on the gas but relatively subdued when driving sedately... and it DOES NOT sound like a dunnydoor V6 with an aftermarket exhaust thank fcuK ! .. yeh Scandrew has a clip around here somewhere.. here ya go;

here is also another exhaust i been thinking about.. the Top Speed Pro N1 or something or other... works out about the same $$$ as the hitech i think but sounds a lot louder on the vid.. never heard one in real life though so it might sound like ass ;

There has been comparisons made with dynos etc and the APS exhaust is supposed to make a few more kws than the HiTech exhaust. The APS exhaust is a true dual exhaust while the HiTech uses a Y-pipe into the muffler. They both have two exhaust outlets in the stock locations. The HiTech exhaust tips are very nice, they are a little thicker with a different bezel and as a result they catch the light better. They are both look very professional and look like they belong there.

Here's the APS exhaust http://www.airpowersystems.com.au/350z/exhaust/exhaust.htm It looks very nice in my opinion, also what I like about it is that it has 2 flex joints, it should prenent rattling and cracking of the exhaust and the rear muffler has the stock shape which acts like a diffuser.

The only problem with it is, it's not released yet.

ACT350Z,
The Hi-tech exhaust might be a little bit more if you don't live in Sydney. I cost me just under $2,000 in Melbourne. That inluded shipping and fitment costs.

If you want another video, then here's one where you geta good feel for the exhaust as it's being fanged around some witches hats:

David, I think the HiTech sounds better than that video in real life.

I'm sure it does ... I don't think a video/audio can ever do it justice.

NUFF: - is the APS twin same as for the TT - if so, that would be a considerable saving if going to TT in the future?

Also, it's a nicer looking unit than the HiTech - by a country mile!

nang3, the only person who knows what it sounds like (as far as I know) is David, the guy with APS TT system, I forgot his nick on this board.

MDZowner, thanks for your useless reply..

I for one don't go through forum by forum to see all the posts, I just use the 'view new posts' option. Because of this, it's easy to miss which forum you're reading.

That said, I'm sure mdzowner didn't realize you were looking for responses from people ONLY in Australia. Almost any exhaust brand you can buy has been installed on someone's car in the US, so doing a search would help you in 99% of the cases.

Don't mean to be a jerk, but I think your comment was completely uncalled for.

Doing a search and reading about exhausts Z owners in America have put on there cars is irrelevant. I was looking for Z owners in Australia with exhausts, and hence where they purchased it. Considering the Americans supply the Aussies with shonky 350 Chev engines for our Holdens, id hardly go and purchase an exhaust from the US.

in saying that, thankyou for enlightening me.

Cheers
Steve
