    Repair Questions
    Hi All, I have a 2000 Xterra which has a rusted out exhaust system that lets exhaust out at at least one if not two spots before it gets to the end of the tailpipe. I was talking to my dad about replacing it myself and he said, "you should probably just pay someone to do that because those...
  4. Replacing rear exhaust, do I need a clamp?

  7. Aftermakret Exhaust Install Ideas? Magnaflow, Flowmaster, etc??

    Modification Questions
    I'm putting on an aftermarket exhaust this week on my 2011. I know that each brand of exhaust and size can really be dependent on the vehicle for the right sound/performance. Currently I am leaning towards a MagnaFlow exhaust, not sure what size yet. I have a couple questions for anyone that...

    Modification Questions
    Just wanting to get advice from other Xterra owners. Looking to make the car sound better(mostly a deeper tone and a little louder), and not sure which route to take. Originally I was just going to put a muffler on, but I don't want a ricey sound. I've been told to get dual exhaust, and also...

    Repair Questions
    Hey everyone, I found that my '04 x s/c is making a noticeable rattling noise, specifically around the 2200 rpm mark. I have had two shops look into very briefly. They both said that the heat shields are tight and that they believe IT IS exhaust related. Weird thing is that this sound CANNOT...

  14. 2002 X - Non-SC - Needs exhaust - Questions

    Performance Mods
    Okay, my '02 has had a pinhole in the exhaust pipe since I got it. I knew about it when I bought it, but didn't hate the sound, so I just left it alone. Not having the extra cash handy helped make that decision also. So, now 5 months later, and I'm going to get it replaced. I'm looking at...

    I'm new to the site. I've owned my SE V6 4x4 2000 since it was a year old with 35k. It now has 162k but not running anywhere near where it used to. Currently I'm in the process of removing both catalytic converters due to an extremely sluggish engine. The truck stutters so much that it shuts...
