I think the Q60 is one of the best looking cars in it's class. 👍

Check out @IridiumRS400 His build is spot on. Unfortunately my Q50 had a bad cylinder from day one. I can't claim it as a warranty claim because I modified it. It took a long time to manifest symptoms. Looking at my oil analysis the "Fuel in Oil" has been an issue all along. Infiniti wants nothing to do with it now even with this data. You play you pay.

Hopefully I get it repaired before winter!

Was that the #5 cylinder issue you mentioned previously?

#4 I believe. Once it's apart we will know for sure. My bet a wrist pin retaining circle clip popped out and was scraping the cylinder wall. Just a wild guess.

:unsure: That’s awfully specific to be a wild guess.

APEXi has the best note, but for the Q60, you can only get their universal mufflers. Fast Intentions would be my second choice for sound, and they offer a full cat back for the 60. Third would be Ark. youtube those companies and tons of sound clips will come up. Happy hunting.

They’re hard to come by on the VR30 because the cat back for the Q50 is twice the price of the competition. But to give you an idea, here’s a 350Z with an APEXi system VS stock. The first half is the stock exhaust.


here’s their current product, the N1, on a Lexus IS300
