Re: performants parts for infiniti fx50

at the moment anything you do will take custom fabrication. you could build or adapt an existing first gen exhaust, you can build/improve the air intake, you could possibly install a nitrous setup on it, it'll even be possible to build a turbo setup for it using add on supplemental fuel control. most of these aren't DIY unless you really are a fabricator though, so while all of these things can be done, about the only real "practical" thing you could do at the moment is attempt to have a first gen aftermarket exhaust retrofitted. without having a good look underneath hard to say really how easy or hard that would wind up being, worse case a custom exhaust could be built too

the short answer is, there is nothing available right now as a bolt on really

Re: performants parts for infiniti fx50

I have added K and N drop ins ( you need 2 ), and a flowmaster 80. I feel better anyway Cant say it has improved perf much as it is a full out beast out of the box.
Sounds Waaaay better now though, like my 45 did.

Do you have any pictures of the exhaust set up? Did you do a cat back or just the muffler? My only complaint about my fx50 is the exhaust. My old 45 sounded much better.

Re: performants parts for infiniti fx50

I'm surprised that someone would want to make the FX50 "faster"... good grief, the thing is a rocket sled on rails already
and pretty close to the fastest stock SUV on the market?? But...it keeps the economy going so spend spend spend!!

Re: performants parts for infiniti fx50

Here's the look from below:



He probably replaced the rear muffler with flowmaster 80 series one.. You should also be able to replace the two midpipe resonators with round aftermarket resonators as well.. As far as I know, Magnaflow & Flowmaster has several sizes and Wireboltman is using Twister mufflers..

Re: performants parts for infiniti fx50

I wonder if the HKS muffler would fit... would have to fab your own mid-pipe for it though, but that should be easy for a good exhaust shop to do...

Re: performants parts for infiniti fx50

Thanks for the pictures. I was wondering if he did any custom work to the piping. The look on the salesmans face when I was looking under the truck in the show room was priceless.



Boomerkid you can never be fast enough. There are a few cars and redneck pickup trucks around here that need a good ass whipping. The look on there face when losing would be priceless.

Your stock 50 could whip them as is... add in breathing and exhaust mods and it would probably make them just a joke...

I believe you could fit mine in there with minor mods and some adjustments to the tips .. Looks like Infiniti went with a straighter rear suspension brace instead of our s shaped one so it should be even easier.. See mine and you'll understand:
