Thread: Axle back exhaust group buy: for the people, by the people.

  1. #1

    Axle back exhaust group buy: for the people, by the people.

    I'm going to put my money where my mouth is.

    I'm going to a shop I know and have a axel back muffler system made to fit the stock mid pipe.

    It will be a quality product and made to spec.

    I will make a run of them by contract if there are enough people that want them.
    I'm thinking minimum 10 preferably 20.
    I can probably get the costs down a lot more with 20. And it would justify the jig and then make it easier to make more if needed.

    Off the top of my head it would likely be in the $350 plus tax range. But don't quote me. I'll talk to them over the weekend and get back to you.

    There will also be an optional mid pipe, Resonator delete.

    This will make it drone and be louder.

    My tip is 4"
    for less touching of the rear fascia the 3.5" is a better oem style fitting.
    Double wall 2.5>3.5" tip. (can be tinted blue but it voids the tips warranty FYI)
    14" stainless steel muffler.
    Packing to be determined.
    Stainless steel inlet piping.
    Flange to fit stock mid pipe.
    Tig welded.

    Optional extra
    (added cost TDB)
    (this will be made to order)
    The extra mid pipe res.delete
    2" cat back stainless steel.
    Mandrel bent.
    Tig welded.

    And it will have a sound clip video.

    There are 2 shops that I have in mind.
    One has been around scone 1999
    The other was built be industrial professionals with a combined 400+ years of experience.

    But let's looks at reviews.

    Budget exhaust - 24 online reviews all 5star except 1-3star no detail 1-1star no detail
    450+ likes

    Solo-performance - 12k+likes and follows

    The other guys ... 1 review. 5 stars.

    Do your own research on these companies they will be ones producing this muffler system

    LOL, honestly, when I read the title of this thread, I thought this:


    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    I have removed my cat-back straight pipe and it is now for sale: $450 as-is where-is.
    With the tip $500. ( topical rust due to heating and cooling it's in perfect working condition )

    The rear hangers are included. But needed to removed to remove / install. Install and labor is NOT included.
    Any exhaust repair / custom shop can easily install this for under $150. If in Mississauga / Burlington I recommend budget exhaust or zoro muffler / solo performance.


    I will be gettin more info about the axel back exhaust soon.

    Sorry for the delay. I've been pretty busy at life.
    I will be making this soon.
    I've got the stock exhaust back in place. So I can have the axel back made to fit the stock location.
    Then I'll modify the cat back straight pipe I already have to fit the stock muffler and axel back muffler.

    Now I have ( will have ) an interchangeable exhaust system.

    I can pretty much guarantee that my "street version" axel back will sound amazing.

    I can't help but wonder if my straight pipe helped influenced the micra cup to change.
    Because from what I've seen there's a strong similarities. The street version doesn't sound as nice to me (imho)

    I heard a raspy sound and it hit the ears wrong ( for me, personally ) the cup version definitely is noticeabley different.
