One thing i'm really not liking here is the single exhaust output especially when the opposite side has a "delete". I understand for cost reasons they can't just make it for a single output without a delete plate... but this just gets to me :mad:

Agreed, it would look better it there's an exhaust on both sides. The rear looks a bit unbalanced without anything on the left side, but they had to cut costs somewhere.

It'll cut costs, weight, and even efficiency. Putting in a single muffler with dual exits weighs a fair bit more than a single to single. Also adds more exhaust restriction (understandably far down the line at the end).

Maybe the good ol' aftermarket will come up with something that allows for a rear bumper change, and hopefully there's enough room to do some plumbing and fit another pipe in there.

mall issue but if i do go the aftermarket route and end up doing something to the Elantra I won't mind the extra weight that comes since at the end of the day its just my commuter. All I will want from a dual setup is sound and improved aesthetics, and if I get some decent bump in power... great.

Once you can find a nice cutout for the rear to make it look all oem, it'll be dope :)

Get a nice way in where you can fit a Y-Pipe and have equal length pipes come out to both sides. Gotta remember we need an equal amount of "smoke" coming out of both sides ;)

That's the downside, it takes a lot to get this right however I don't plan to stop at an exhaust setup like this, it's just part of a larger plan to modify the ES. For starters I might just cut out the resonator and leave it as is.

Have you started thinking about what exhaust setup you'll go for?

Always been a muffler delete, straight pipe kind of guy. But I'm gonna follow the same route I always do, and much like yourself, go with chopping the resonators first. Then cats. Then mufflers last. I'll have to upgrade the downpipe too though, I'm sure it's quite restrictive like all oem downpipes are for emission reasons.

I actually prefer the single side, dual tip setup. Reminds me of my old 2000 Sentra SE that I had. (miss that car)

My buddy had a 2002 SE-R spec V, used to drive it around all the time. Fun bit of car lol, used to go hooning around in it all the time. Packed more oomph than people thought it did.

Mine had the 2.0L SR20. I never really liked the 2.5L in the SE-R's, and I work for Nissan. :p

That sounds like a good setup, although depending on what parts and where you get labor done it can add up.

I will be taking it slow, resonators are always the cheapest route and most effective. For some people that's all they need.
