The Nissan GTR Exhaust is one of the first major mods to do to the iconic turbocharged vehicle. The first USA version of the GTR was the R35 which came out in 2009. Since the release of the GTR in the USA, there has been a huge boom in performance parts and tuning solutions to get power out of the car. Like most turbo vehicles, the exhaust system is very restrictive to meet government regulations. With an aftermarket exhaust for the Nissan GTR, you can gain horsepower and have an exotic sound as well. The Nissan GTR is made up of 3 different parts. You have the downpipes, the mid pipe, and then the muffler section. The downpipes connect to the V6 twin turbos and have catalytic converters in them to be emission friendly. many companies make aftermarket high flow or catless downpipes which really free up power and improve turbo spool. The midpipe is another restriction where a free flowing design eliminates any bottlenecks from happening. This is actually in the shape of a Y as it comes together from the 2 turbos into the single muffler exhaust. Where the big difference is between exhaust companies is the muffler. The exhaust muffler can be stainless steel, titanium, inconel or a combination. There are different diameter piping, tip styles, and even some have valves to allow for remote switching of a quite and race mode. Below are some links to popular exhausts available for the Nissan GTR which you can compare and even hear sound clips.
