I thought it was from the expanding/contracting of the heated exhaust as well, but it wasn't (well, not in the sense of normal operation--obviously it was expanding/contracting within a faulty...

It was just one resonator as far as we could isolate; however, I had them both cut out and just replaced with the stock ones. I'm sorry that you're experiencing this, as it's very frustrating. It...

I have the stock Bose sub that came in my NismoTech, if you're interested. I'll let it go for cheap as it's just taking up space in the garage.

I have experience with the stock 2015+ Nismo exhaust; AAM resonated short tails; and the R-Tune.

I'm currently running the R-Tune with AAM HFCs and I LOVE IT.

I was running the Short Tails on...

I haven't had it dynoed yet as I'm in the process of datalog tuning; however, the R-Tune exhaust is a performance part so it is high-flowing and less restrictive than OEM. The exhaust has a really...

The R-Tune is definitely high-flowing and sounds nothing like the stock exhaust. It is aggressive under throttle, yet there is absolutely no cabin drone. Aside from the resonator issue, which was...

That's me. Since having the resonators replaced, I haven't had any issues with the exhaust. I really like the tone and it's high-flowing as well.

We just kept listening and finally isolated the issue. There are only so many components that can fail and the one that had the most pieces/parts is the most likely culprit. It was a giant PITA...

***update***

The "ding" turned out to be a blown weld inside one of the resonators. The shop still had my stock midpipe so they just cut and pasted the old into the new and the annoyance, along with everyone's...

I was running stock cats, midpipe, and resonated Short Tails and that was a nice, very aggressive sound. I installed the AAM resonated HFCs (kept stock midpipe) and the sound in cabin became...

No. I have AAM resonated HFCs and I had them installed for about 2 months prior to installing the R-Tune system without any issues.

Yes, other than this issue, I am very happy with the exhaust. The note is aggressive under throttle but peaceful in the cabin. You can probably get the same results with the Invidia Gemini for a few...

New Exhaust "DING"

3 weeks ago I had the Nismo R-Tune exhaust installed, and I know that metal expands when hot; however, there is a loud "ding" that happens about every 15-20 seconds after the exhaust is hot. The ding...

I took mine to a local exhaust shop and they had to cut and re-weld the hanger arms to make the Short Tails even. It took them 30 mins and only cost me $20.
