    Micra cup exhaust

    After watching numerous videos on the Micra Cup series and listening to the great exhaust tone of our little race car, does anyone know what muffler they are using in the series, and is it a cat back or just aftermarket muffler.

    They use a custom downpipe and cat-back exhaust set at 2" dia all around. Their muffler is an american aftermarket brand from Cortek, while the media boast about them using "Nismo" exhaust. They do not, and their custom model works, but the price isn't a given. I wouldn't personally buy it, I rather stick to JDM aftermarket manufactures who specialise on this topic longer than MIA's existence. Such as Fujitsubo or Kakimoto.

    I talk with someone that work with those guy and they were willing to sell me a catback exhaust for about 800$ not bad if you compare to the nismo axle back running for 680 retail

    Or for a bit more, you can go for something with more history and quality in the exhaust world, Fujitsubo's Authoryze RM series, with the dry-carbon tail, 83 db @3000rpm.

    Myself, I'm making arrangements to import Kakimoto's GTBox06&S for the Nismo S model, hopefully I'll have it equipped for the beginning of summer.

    Be carefull with the exhaust spec. If you look at my nismo exhaust they say to be 86db but in reality its the same sound as the oem one

    Well, yours is only an axle-back usually the sound changes when a resonator is included in the 2" line, the Kakimoto model I am getting sounds like this from this youtube clip. Also your Nismo axle back is not the same design as the one included with the Nismo S version, the sound is actually different and louder by a few dbs.

    I don't know about everyone else but I think the stock sound of this car sounds great, a combination of the engine and exhaust has a little rumble and it's making me second guess getting a aftermarket muffler/ exhaust, maybe just a aftermarket slanted tip.

    Stock sound is pretty restricted in my opinion, a steel 1" dia line is quite low to some standards. Here's the actual Nismo S cat-back unit which is much less restrictive and looks great!

    that is the nismo exhaust i got but yeah since no midpipe is replaced there is no sound. but the nismo catback you are showing is worth nearly 2000$
