Default NEW S-Tune Exhaust for Z33

This thread will cover questions and answers about the new (2017 release) NISMO S-Tune Exhaust system. (Created to move a question about same to this thread.)

Currently available from Z1: https://www.z1motorsports.com/exhaus...m-p-12120.html

As well as most authorized distributors of Nissan/NISMO parts.

Reason this was posted was someone asked about the new one and how it differs from the original (in the Marketplace).

Observations (with no actual experience and based solely on quick research):

The new S-Tune is a copy of the original S-Tune but made by a different manufacturer based on original specs with the exception of the mid-pipe-to-rear-muffler connection and the tips.

New muffler flange is located in roughly the same location as the OE location. (Versus original S-Tune connection which is different from OE and requires use of the S-Tune mid-pipe or a rework (new pipe and flange) to make it work with OE pipe.)



Tailpipe tips are adjustable - appears to use a V-band clamp versus welded connection. Also, the mid- and optional Y-pipe are polished stainless (versus natural on the original Weldina S-Tune).

None of these changes should affect performance or sound I'm guessing.

I wish the original had removable tips.

I feel like this is opening a whole new door of people just installing Nismo mufflers and saying they have a Nismo exhaust.

Just to clarify, this "new S-Tune Exhaust" IS a Nismo part. It is NOT an OE 07-08 350Z Nismo muffler which differs from the non-Nismo part in only a couple of minor details, not the least of which is the tips.

The original and this new S-Tune carry OEM Nissan part numbers and available through any Nissan dealer or authorized Nissan parts distributor. It IS "aftermarket" per se, with NO 350Zs (other than the Japan Domestic Market, non-USA genuine S-Tune Z) here in the US ever equipped standard with it. (Dealer option or over the counter only.)

Main features of the S-Tune (versus OEM 350Z Nismo): larger diameter pipes from Y-Pipe to muffler and a fully engineered rear muffler, NOT a copy of the OE piece.

If you put this one on, you DO have 2/3rds of a Nismo exhaust. (Y-Pipe optional and recommended.)

I agree with you. I happen to be 100% satisfied with the stock exhaust except for the tips. I purchased the 5 inch burnt Motordyne tips just for the look.I always get compliments on my tips now

Hi!
Does someone has this installed (the re-release with new tips) and can give a comparison of the "old" Weldina s-tune version?
I did ask to Z1motorsport and they replied "the sound is similar but a tad quieter"

Also i am very curious on how looks the tips once mounted on the Z since the Weldina one where double walled, isn't the simple tips looks too tiny?
