So I'm finally trying to finish my exhaust mods. After all the threads I've read, I'm aware the best place to install the UQ is post-muffler. My question is relatively simple I guess. I'm just wondering how much length this will add to exhaust? My rear exhaust hangar already rubs from time to time, so I honestly don't know how much I have to spare. How do most people handle an issue like this? Do you have to cut out areas of the pipe and re-weld/clamp to make space for it?

Also, a followup question: My exhaust piping diameter is 2.5''. Which size UQ should I get? I noticed they come in 2.25, 2.5 and 3. If I were to get it welded, I'm assuming 2.5, but if I decided to clamp would the smaller or larger one be a better option?

Thanks ahead of time for the advice!

It won't add anything to the length. They will cut out the section of your current exhaust, and stick the UQ in it's place. When I had mine on (for like two days, it was too quiet), I remember it being installed almost right above the axle. Get the 2.5" because going down in size will just restrict the exhaust. Welding is always better than clamps.

Install beside the spare tire and you will cut out about 10" of the existing tailpipe. The Stock Nissan tailpipe is 2.75" so a 3" UQ is what you need if it's stock.

Thanks for the advice guys.

I'll double check the diameter at the rear of the pipe to see which to go with.

Kind of on a side note: Is there a ballpark cost I should look for as far as getting the UQ installed? There aren't too many custom shops around here so I'll probably need to look around if it's pricey.

The difference in diameter between the resonator and the exhaust pipe threw a wrench in my install and drove up the cost. The muffler guy wasn't too happy.

$103 shipped from Cajun
Apologies, let me clarify: I meant prices for installation of the resonator at a muffler shop, not the price of the unit itself.

I don't think it would be very much... Maybe a half hour of labor at a shop

To cut out my pipe and weld in the UQ? Or will they typically clamp? Sorry I'm a complete amateur when it comes to things like welding.

Either way not too bad. I'm not too crazy about taking a sawzall to my catback so I wouldn't mind paying a pro a few bucks to do it right.

Shouldn't cost more than $40 to weld it in if more they are getting to you.
Good deal, that's pretty much what I was looking for. I'll check around with some of the shops who do custom work nearby and see what they're thinking. Thanks for the advice guys!

Now, I guess I'll just have to decide whether or not I'll want them to weld up the rest of the gaps while they're under there...

One last lingering question that you cajun guys may have a quick answer to!

If I plan on waiting a bit on purchasing the UQ so I can experience the new exhaust setup without it, will I have to send in for a separate set of uprev tunes after I finally do install it? Or is the presence of the UQ pretty much negligible when it comes to the tuning side of things? I would just want to make sure I'm getting as accurate of a tune as possible for my eventual setup.
