Continuing in a long line of successful exhaust development for the sport compact and grand touring car markets, Nameless Performance is proud to announce our Catback Exhaust for the Nissan 370Z Coupe. As with the vast majority of production vehicles, the Nissan 370Z comes standard equipped with an exhaust system that is excellent at cancelling any and all tone from the factory engine, succeeding at producing an exhaust note akin to the sound of air moving, more air moving, and even more air moving. As is always our goal, we strive to return the exhaust tone to our customers vehicles and allow them to dictate both the note and amplitude of the exhaust through our modular, configurable exhaust systems.
Like most of our exhaust offerings, we began our design of the exhaust system on the 370Z with the axleback portion of the exhaust, featuring bolt-up factory fit flanges and hangers. This allows our customers to purchase their exhaust system one piece at a time or all at once. Manufactured entirely in our facility in Woodland, Washington, USA, we take pride in the details of our exhaust systems and invest the best into what we build for our customers:
A simple modification like the replacement of the back muffler box on a car can transform the day to day driving experience for the owner of the vehicle, and this exhaust is no different. We love to claim that the first and foremost benefit to our exhaust systems are that they sound incredible and really make driving more enjoyable. Baffled/chambered mufflers are an amazing invention of science, with the ability to cancel specific frequencies of sound to provide a near silent operation. For those of us who are enthusiasts, however, mufflers and resonators that are designed like the factory ones are provide us with zero feedback. Likewise, the closer they get to the engine in the exhaust system, the more they restrict the still hot expanding exhaust gas. As exhaust gas travels further back in the system it cools and requires less flow capacity to flow at the same rate. To improve the upstream performance of the exhaust, we replaced the factory 2" exhaust tubing with 2.25" tubing for a substantial improvement in factory exhaust flow. By adding a pair of small diameter lightweight resonators, our system reduces the rasp inherent in non resonated exhausts without effecting the high frequency noises that make V6 exhausts sound great.
The overall result is a catback exhaust that features an elegant design and look on the car with a user configurable sound based on you choice of mufflers.
Beyond the sound signature and improvement in powerband, the most noticeable difference in the addition of our exhaust is the weight savings of 15-18lb depending on muffler configuration.
Muffler Configuration: We offer the axleback portion of the exhaust system for the 370Z with an option of muffler. Take care to consider your choices based on your long term plans for the vehicle as it relates to adding other exhaust modifications. If you plan on modifying more of the exhaust long-term you may want to choose a muffling options to match your long term plans. We currently offer the following two muffler configurations:
Tip Design: This exhaust ships with a pair of 4" Single Wall Slash Cut exhaust tips. Single wall exhaust tips are made from a single T304 stainless tube that is lightly slash cut, dome formed and TIG welded to the exhaust system. The single wall design gives an aggressive, clean look that fits well with the overall size of the exhaust cutout in the bumper.
Installation & Hardware: Installation is a snap with basic hand tools. Removal of the factory exhaust requires removing four nuts and four exhaust hanger bushings from the factory muffler. Each side of our axleback exhaust system is then hung from the factory exhaust hanger bushings and attached over the factory midpipe exhaust studs. We provide upgraded serrated M10x1.25 flange nuts and replacement gaskets that are used when re-installing the upgraded exhaust. Hold the tips centered in the cutout in the bumper and tighten the nuts to ~20ft lb with hand tools. *Avoid using impact tools on the factory hardware or our provided hardware as the potential to damage the factory exhaust studs which are on the factory midpipe is very high when using impact tools.
We recommend choosing standard FedEx Ground shipping for a 1-5 day turnaround time depending on your location. Shipping prices range between roughly $15 and $30 for ground shipping to the lower 48 states. International and Alaska/Hawaii rates may vary. You can check your direct shipping cost by putting the parts in the shopping cart, choosing 'view cart' and then estimating the shipping using the tools in the cart. We also offer USPS Priority Shipping as well as a FedEx 2 Day and Overnight option, but generally recommend that our customers wait a few more days and invest that extra money into their car.
