What would you do? Bosal kit from RockAuto or G35 HKS knockoff from eBay?

Exhaust Dilemma. Bosal kit from RockAuto or G35 HKS knockoff from eBay?

Pretty straight forward. I'm killing myself trying to decide what to do to replace my stock exhaust.

I really like the stock exhaust sound, I'm not trying to get too far away from that - but the options for a 2004 FX35 seem to get fewer each year.


What would you do? The true dual appears to be of significantly better construction, but how much louder is it?? Does anyone know what the true dual sounds like compared to the stock setup?




Thanks for any input!

I am also interested in what owners say about this as I am looking to replace my exhaust as well. Love the sound, just want it a tiny bit louder.

I'm looking into the same question. Did either of you pull the trigger and pick a solution you'd like to share with us?

have been looking into exhausts for my 05 fx and actual use case experience posts appear to be few and far between.

Hi guys, I'm new here but I had a muffler shop install the BOSAL Exhaust (KIT13156966 from RockAuto) on my 2004 FX35 last week. My muffler was completely rusted out on the bottom, to the point where the right exhaust fell off. According to the guys who did the install, the BOSAL parts were pretty much bolt on and they didn't have an issue with the fitment at all. They did however have to cut off a bunch of stuff with a saw since it was all fused together. They used all of the provided and welded the parts together so I didn't need to worry about nuts or bolts coming loose.

In terms of exhaust tones, its appears to be about the same as stock. Maybe just a tad louder?

Just a heads up, the BOSAL Exhaust System doesn't come with nuts or bolts so make sure to ask the shops near you to see if they can still install without them. I asked a Pep Boys near me and they wanted the nuts and bolts and another place quoted me doubled the price I paid at the muffler shop!

P.S. I crawled under my car and also into Home Depot in case anyone was wondering what size the nuts & bolts are for the stock exhaust. There appear to be 2 different size bolts (60 mm & 35 mm) which are M10-1.25. The nuts are M10-1.25 and I believe the serrated ones are recommended for automotive use. Please check me on this. I don't wanna give fellow FX owners wrong info
