Tanabe Medalion G Fordan Axle back Exhaust install

Hey guys been bargan hunting again and I got this Tanabe exhaust for $170 nzd (104usd) Second hand.

Just spent a couple hours installing it and i am so happy with the results!

Not only does it sound so, so mint but the clutch hopping is gone..it doesn jerk as you let the foot of the clutch, it has changed how the car drives!

Really had no idea the 1nzfe was so badly restricted and I had the trd muffler on there, the normal one must be aweful.

Stoked with it!

Edit: this should have been in the exhaust thread lol

Ive become obsessed with refreshing search on certain second hand trading websites and I also check the online stock of our ALL the wreckers in auckland and hit them up to see if it has any special parts the moment they come in!

Found a bunch of other trd equiped cars but I had that stuff already, Im hunting for a trd exhaust manifold, I seen one for sale but it was out of budget at the time.

Yeah New Zealand gets second hand Japanese domestic market cars in mass, thats what we have here tho you can buy new models here but they have the same crappy specs as us domestic just ours are lhd.

So the jdm versions we get in secondhand always have the cooler stuff, my car is a NZ new car with every trim option available ticked even the sticker kit but didn't come with jdm stuff like the rear disc brakes or any of the other hotter rs parts and the RS yaris as far as i know didn't get sold here or if it did its rare as hens teeth.

Yeah this exact exhaust is for sale right now on there, so not unobtainium yet. Best sounding aftermarket exhaust I have heard for a long time. The 1nzfe sounds like a beast with this thing and its really nice to drive on the highway, not droning at all.

Wait till you see how much it is to ship a front lip or bumper lol. Hell, my Vitz GRMN tails were about $800CAD by the time they got to my door.

I watch Noriyaro on yt and those second hand performance part shops make me so jealous. Stuff like this exhaust is rare here, thats why I jumped on it when I seen it. We get the standard jdm cars but we dont usually get the hotted up cars, they only import standard factory secondhand cars unless you personally import it.

what kind of cost cut we talking about?..like i have ZERO issue waiting, but when shipping is 3x the price of a USED part..it just seems like a stupid idea at that point.....ive had my eyes on a very....very specific muffler on ebay for almost a year now...its come down to a reasonable price, and shippings almost worth it at this point...but dropping 400+ on a used muffler still seems STUPID


the one in question is one of the i think vip style HKS...not even 100% its yaris/vits but hacking the pipe off to make it fit would be nothing...its one of the ones that hasthe chamber built off the side

Seems like it, too bad.

I've been aching for a Vitz G's front bumper but 4 grand CAD for a used piece of molded plastic is asinine.

at that point it would be cheeper to fly to japan yourself and bring it back as a carryon even if you had to buy an extra seat to put it in

Guys theres a reason i am getting all the jdm stuff so easily/cheaply..Japan is only one of two places to find JDM cars, New zealand is the other place.

have you tried pricing it from here? We have secondhand parts stores like dodsons autoparts who will ship anywhere.

Shipping would still be a bit but i dont think it would be as much as japan sells their jdm stuff at..here its just normal parts for our cars as jdm is the norm so theres no extra charge.

For a decent tip id be willing to collect and ship parts for you guys.

If you guys let me know which parts you can't get there that you would pay to be shipped I will start collecting them to sell to you all.
