Our tuned exhaust systems are engineered for minimum back pressure and efficient exhaust scavenging. The 2 1/2" piping and high efficiency "Turbo" style muffler provide reduced back pressure without the harsh volume of many other types of performance systems. This kit is a direct fit to the factory catalytic converter on your 82-83 non-turbo 280ZX and requires no welding. The exhaust exits on the driver's side through the factory cut-out. Includes all parts necessary for installation, detailed instructions, and a 2 1/2" chrome tip! This is a cat-back system: it does not include a catalytic converter or piping from the factory manifold to the converter.

Application Note:
This system was designed to be compatible with both Coupe and 2+2 models. For Coupes, the forward pipe that meets the catalytic converter must be cut down to size. For 2+2's, the kit bolts up directly to the converter.

performance exhaust systems, no matter the manufacturer or type, will be louder than the stock exhaust system. This is an unavoidable consequence of reducing back pressure and therefore increasing performance. This is especially true upon acceleration when exhaust pressures are at their highest. This performance system, with a "turbo" style muffler ("turbo" refers to the designed flow of the exhaust through the muffler, not to a turbocharged engine), is no exception. This type of muffler, however, was designed to limit the level of sound, especially when the engine is not being pushed. Therefore while it will be significantly louder under heavy acceleration, especially when connected to a header as opposed to the stock exhaust manifold, it should only have a pleasing "low rumble" tone during normal operation. Please call us if you have any questions.
