Exhaust System

Hi All,

I have had my Altezza for a few weeks now, I still haven't taken it to be checked out regarding the issue why it wont Rev past 6k, but as the speed I'm going it correct and she spins the wheels all the way from 1st and 3rd there is no real rush :lol:

One thing that I have noticed is that the exhaust sound isn't very nice, its very tinny at an indicated 4k revs (properly higher as my Rev counter is f**ked) there is what can be best described as a rattle sound from the exhaust. I'm not sure what system the car has on, the back box has a large pipe I had a look and the words Toyota are stamped on it so it must be standard, although I'm not sure how a large pipe like that would be?

I found the attached standard system, if I get under the car is this what I should find? the cat is the device that is just below the picture of the white Altezza right?

What the standard diameter for the back box pipe?

Yea that's standard except that's for the GXE10. the SXE10 only has one cat I think. The bit under the car is a center silencer. The cat is the 2 tubes that bolt into the manifold where it steps down to 2.

the exhaust sound could be from a loose heat shield or a loose clamp on the exhaust

Automatic version of altezza has the twin cat. Manual not sure.


The rattle sound will be properly be the heat-shields.
