Ark Performance Exhaust Systems R&D
 
Not everything was gloomy at the Auto Enthusiast day by Nitto event!! I had the privilege to meet Michael and Larry from Ark Performance

They are super excited to develop exhaust systems for the 3rd Gen IS and I couldn't have been happier to be a part of it. Here are a couple of pictures of the progress so far. Not much detail yet but I'll be updating this thread weekly, if not daily.

enjoy....and follow them on IG

Never seen it on the 2IS but they get pretty good reviews from the G and Z forums.

if they in fact have the dual chamber resonator design then it will be worth every penny..up to $1500 or so

Yup! they do. I don't think they actually produce any NON dual chamber exhaust system. But when I picked up my car on Friday i got there just in time to hear it and see them remove the prototype off the vehicle. It is dual chamber for sure and it looks beautiful and it sounds amazing. I now see why they are so popular with the Z and G (nissan and infiniti) owners. and they are extremely professional.

So now the prototype is being being polished up a bit and I should have some videos to post in January. *crossing fingers*

thanks for tuning in guys.

is the Ark Performance 3is available?
maybe we can just buy the muffler and resonator and have it welded at a exhaust shop ?

Looking forward to what ARK will offer for the 3IS.

General rule of thumb for exhaust systems is that they should be as straight as possible (minimal bends) for a smooth flow in order to maximum performance and exhaust flow characteristics :D

Looking forward to see some dyno charts too :thumbup:
