The next item for testing was the 350Z Y-Pipe upgrade. The Tanabe Y-Pipe includes sections of flex-piping to maintain durability, even if the exhaust system experiences flexing during driving.
Technician Maeda is impressed to the depths of his heart.
Not bad for a a day's worth of testing.

Nissan 350Z HR
The next test on the 350Z HR brought us to the Sustec Stabilizer Bars aka front and rear anti-sway bars.
The rear bar fit just fine...
...and so did the front.
Many people ask whether our bars are solid or hollow. They ARE in fact hollow chromemoly bars. Why hollow? Well, firstly, hollow bars are about half the weight of solid bars. Also, due to the chromemoly construction, the bars are still able to retain the targeted stiffness value. Many people only speak of swaybar diameter. But, we have the actual tension rates. Please call or send us an email if you have any questions about Tanabe Stabilizer Bars.
Technician Maeda is astonished by the high quality construction of the Tanabe Stabilizer Bar and perfect fitment.

Next, it was time to test the fitment of the Concept G Exhaust on the 350Z HR. Fitment was a bit close to the rear bumper, and so it will be revised a bit for extra clearance. This will give good ground clearance while preventing toasty rear bumpers.
Other than the rear bumper clearance, the exhaust fit like a charm. Unfortunately, while this exhaust system on non-HR 350Zs recorded low decibels (within 93-95db), on the 350Z HR Model, the Concept G was about 100db.
Time to dyno the 350! Again, this dyno test was done with the Medalion Touring Exhaust as the only mod on the car.
The Medalion Touring Exhaust resulted in approximately +10hp and +10tq throughout the whole RPM range.
