Advice Needed on Exhaust!

Hi Everyone,

I'm a newbie to this forum and seeking advice from you experts out there regarding exhaust for RX8:

- Where can I get TRUST, HKS & RE-A exhaust? I know Monster carries RE-A. Any other places?
- Are Fujitsubo & Knightsports exhaust systems the only two brands with LTA approval?
- Seem from previous threats with comments that Fujitsubo is not that good, comments?

Hope to hear some advice from you kind people out there. Thanks in advance!

Hi Guys,

Wow... that's fast response, very impressed!

Btw, where's GAN Motor? Are TRUST & HKS exhaust LTA approved? In your opinion, how do they fare against fujitsubo?

Thanks!

just for info, the new Trust Exo is not yet approved by LTA. I was told by GAN at least 20 ppl purchasing the Exo then they can go and get it approved.

i'm getting autoexe titanium exhaust approval now.

This exhaust is different frm those outside in the market now becos it has a power chamber as the mid pipe, which gives u additional 3-5hp more.

Hi Guys,

Anyone installed Apexi Exhaust? If yes, how is the performance (how increase in bhp)? Does it produced a bassy sound during idling? How is the sound during mid to high range?

Thanks in advance!

I'd sell my Trust Titanium exhaust and top up just to buy this new one man.

C7 will my car setup be able to utilize the effects of this new 'power chamber'? Or would it be a waste of time for me?

Hi Bro,

Auto ...2 choice :

1) RE -A - RE guys did their research on auto Rx8 , the exhaust they design will fit pretty well on an auto..powerwise is there as well. If u got the budget go for the titanum ones....super cool

2) Trust Titanum- What i used to have ...btw i no longer drive Rx8...so power wise i would say reasonable but weight saving..u are toking about 12Kg less...imagine how much wieght saving.. Less Weight = More power... LTA approve

Those who seen my car should know what i am toking about,...
