Bark and Bite for your 350Z – 5Zigen Spec VES Exhaust

28 Oct

A brand new exhaust design from 5Zigen Japan for the 2003-2008 350Z. The Spec VES stands for Variable Exhaust System. This system uses a wastegate-like valve that is electronically and vacuum activated to alter the sound and flow of the exhaust. The valve is actuated via a supplied wireless remote. It was originally announced end of 2011, and production is now starting.

For those readers not in the Northeast, you may not be aware of the hurricane currently en route to our area. Public transportation is closed as of this evening all throughout NY, and many areas are now under mandatory evacuation. We had a bad storm here last year too that knocked power out for several days; hopefully that won’t repeat itself this time around.

In the sprit of anticipating this awful storm we’re about to receive, my thoughts went immediately to rally cars, and the wide range of terrain they are asked to cover in a given event. They certainly are no stranger to water crossings!

If you’ve got any cool or interesting water crossing pics, send them along!
