Default 07-08 Exhaust Tips On 05' Look Good?

Would 07-08 tips look good on an 05 Maxima? Would I have to change both mufflers?

Raz - Sounds great. I just got my 2005 and would love to do intake and exhaust.... ebay catback huh? and for 200 shipped. very tempting. Easy to install? And with intake and exhaust approx what kind of performance upgrade did you get?

To VK818 me personally my opinion is stick with the 05 tips. I like the dual dual look.

Easy if you are mechanically inclined or you have done this before. My maxima is 6spd manual, so for me it's different, my butt dyno said I gained a few horses and lost some torque but that's just my butt.

I like Raz76's exhaust!
@JSClose I kinda think so too. I love how they look, but I have to have them adjusted. My right muffler is too high up to the bumper and it kinda hidden when you look at it from the side......I prefer that they hang a little. What surprises me is that when I see other Maxima's their tips are all f***** up. They look really dull, and then they ask why mine are soo shiny? LOL

If you like the dual tips, look at the Vibrant mufflers:

Are flowmasters a good choice?

Depending on the flowmasters you get, you may have some unbearable drone.

Damn I think I might have to do the Racingline y-pipe, ebay catback, and the Vibrant mufflers once I get my timing chain fixed. Does anyone know which ebay store is the best to purchase the catback from?

I will have to take a look at mine and see if they are messed up as well???
I did buy the car used and mechanically it runs great, more cosmetic blemishes then the 01 I traded in but it will all be fixed in time and I really wanted the bigger engine and 6sp so I made them give me a offer I couldn't pass up.

LOL I think the trade is fair, right now for everything being stock I think it has sifficent tourque, being mine truely is a family car (2 boys). It gets up and performs when I need it to.

And ya looks easy enough I helped a buddy to a cat back setup on his 98 cobra mustang. Only ? I think I have is what about all the hangars, and they pre welded onto the piping as needed so it litterally is a complete bolt on setup? No other weldings, pieces, parts needed?

I'm pretty sure just about every exhaust mass-produced for maximas will fit perfectly, including the hangars. I don't remember very many people mentioning they had to weld on hangars or adjust them much. I'm pretty sure the eBay catback is the same too. You should be good to go.
