A nice Chinese this weekend...

After looking at the options for an exhaust for my MY11 I decided to go for the XS Power titanium system. I like the design and the system was available in 90mm. Supplier was Jason at XS Power who was extremely helpful from start to finish.

System will be fitted soon along with a AccessPORT NIS-006 supplied by the ever helpful Ben at GTC. Ben kindly pre-loaded a selection of maps to suit the car.

Updates to follow once installed

Y-Pipe is resonated weighing 3.91Kg
Centre pipe weighs 2.23Kg
Rear section weighs 5.47Kg

Hopefully you will have no problems fitting as that was always the downfall with XS Power products

I thought this is about food :P I will be weary about XS products too as I heard a lot of horror stories during my EVO/MR2 days but that was ages ago...

At a guess, I would say from XS Power.

You would regret selling IMO

Come to Siverstone on 26th Feb and use the power on track

Yes Rob, the weight is amazing. I'm going to weight the OEM system accurately once removed just for comparison.

You are right, I know I would regret a sale, although I hardly get time to drive the car it's always a riot after driving a diesel X-Trail every day

Looks like a nice bit of kit

Did you get it direct off the website? Looks like a good price and around £1000 cheaper than the GTC offering for what looks like a similarly deisgned and quality product.

Would be interested to hear what it sounds like. Any chance of a cheeky video after you've put it on?
