just got off the phone with a tech at Borla. they are in the process of acquiring a G35 coupe for testing a true dual exhaust for our cars. for the Z it is supposed to bump up the HP about 20 HP[boink][bigeyes] here are a couple of pics courtesy of my boy Marcus (TXSTYLE). lucky bastard is the first in the world to have it.....






the tech told me it shouldnt be that big of a deal since its only having to extend it about 6 inches. but we'll see. ETA 2 mos.....

DR RICK![^][^][^] YOU ARE WONDERFUL! I guess all of us who wrote, called, bugged Borla finally got thru with the message. Those are GREAT photos. So, it's on someone's car as a test bed. OK, another two months or so. What do you think? About $900 [banghead](I can hope can't I?)?

That's an even better looking true dual than Stillen's I think. Maybe 20 hp and maybe not, but looks good.[:D] Can't wait to hear the sound. Since they're in SoCalif I wonder if I can go up and listen in? Hmmm.

Thanks again to you and to all!

The pictures are of a Z. Or at least I think they are.

So get on over there and give them your car to test out![jump2]

Is this a true dual system? By the looks of the forth photo, there is only one muffler with dual outlets or is the other muffler hidden? My Stillen system is a true dual from the twin cats back to two mufflers sitting in there sideways. I just wish the Stillen had more of a growl - it's too quiet. The polished stainless steel Stillen mufflers look fantastic from the back.

almost every dual exhaust has a X or a T conection, even on the borla exhaust for the M5. You dont want your G to sound like a Harley.
Look up close to the pics of the borla and you will see the T cross flow conection bellow the carbon fiber drive shaft (it's a Z).

I live here in So Cal, I work in Port Hueneme which is a rock throw away from the Borla headquarters in Oxnard Ca. I posted before that if you call them they will build it. If I can Ill be youre test rodent. Im going to see if I can have them do one up for my G35. If it has the X pipe with the get up thatll be a +++.

truthfully, an x-pipe is not a true dual exhaust. there will be more restriction with it. a single 3.5 inch pipe will not flow the same volume as 2 2.5 inch pipes, unless i am horrible at math. now i understand the need to equalize the pressure of both banks and all, hence the H-pipe. but an H-pipe isnt restricting flow. a friend of mine with a TT GS400 was running into the same problem. it has a an x-pipe and it was reducing HP. when he went to the true dual it freed up a considerable amount of ponies........

Hmmm. Intersting, what I know of the X pipe Vs H pipe is that on my old Mustang the X w/cats flowed better than H. That is Bassani X Pipe Vs Mac H pipe. I believe it was 2.5 diameter. Now on C5 Corvettes depending on what exhaust you run the X pipe is a plus because it keeps the 2500 RPM resonance out of the cockpit. Also better flow and HP. It will be interesting to see what the Borla kit comes with. I personally like the quiet nature of the cabin, and love to hear her rip it up at WOT. Exhausts are very subjective some people love the resonance others hate it. But for the G35 opinion I think an X pipe may help in HP, not loose it. If the pipes are 3-3.5" then I believe it would hurt it.[:D]

Looks good. I might stop by Borla too and check it out... I hope their exhausts don't cost as much $$$ as Stillen's..

A Borla exhaust is guaranteed to cost more than Stillen.

I believe the borla exhaust for the Z is selling at around 700-800...the Stillen costs over a grand. I doubt it will cost more than the Stillen.
