Fujitsubo Legalis - R

I love this Exhaust...

It is JASMA approved :D

I don't know if this applies to all the exhaust, but mine also has a serial number embedded to the exhaust it looks neat, since the first two letters are black while the numbers are all polished.

When I first got it and compared to my stock exhaust, the weight between the two was a big difference... The stock one was way way heavier.

Another thing I noticed that the brackets that holds the exhaust up are hollow.

Just one problem though... the exhaust was a tad bit longer than the stock one, I don't know why it was about 1" longer. I had to find out the hard way when toevtec and I were trying to install the exhaust on our own. But any muffler shop can help with that.

After installation, the sound of the exhaust was near stock. One Note I want to emphasize is that, an exhaust does not need to sound loud to give any performance gain. At high rpms the exhaust was not too loud nor sounded like a rice rocket.

After driving around for a while with this system, my car feels smoother. The vtec crossover was smooth as well. When I was in 4th gear @ 4000rpm and wanted to pass someone, I did not need to down shift to third and do a rapid change lane, I just opened the throttle more and the car picked up SMOOTHLY with no problems.

My MPG has gone up as well.

I do not have any sound clips at the moment, but I have a few pictures...

That does sound very cheap, erm, do you still have your cat fitted? I think you do, or at least a USDM de-cat?
The JDM cats are shorter than both USDM and UKDM cats and the Fujitsubo is a JDM exhaust.
Jasma is a Japanese control board for regulations on the exhausts.
You're also right about the sound, according the Fujitsubo catalogue, the catback for the 4g lude is listed as the same or a couple of db lower than stock depending on where in the rev range the sound levels are measured.

I've got a JDM de-cat ready for when my whole system arrives next week

I have a friend that has a warehouse full of jdm goodies, and so he hooked me up, he has more catback exhausts on pallets... such as spoon sports, tanabe, fujitsubo... anyways.. the spoon sports he was selling was a tad too expensive for me, so i chose the next really rare exhaust.. :D

Everything was BOLT-ON... only one problem the Jdm exhausts are a tad longer than the usdm, 1" to be exact... so I had the muffler shop guys cut 1" of the B-pipe and put back together...I'm still using my stock cat too btw... and I havent received any issues with police officers, i had several of those Cops on Chargers giving me thumbs up and I had to get my car inspected due to a few fix it tickets and they did not say anything about my exhaust...

I love this thing... My car really picks up and my MPG 0wnz ... 380 miles on a full tank... not that bad.. on 13.3 gallons

I will post my sound clip soon... and im also plan to install the smsp header soon... so we'll see...

Yeah, the B pipe varies in length between the JDM/USDM/UKDM because the Japs have the shortest cat, then you guys i think, then us in the UK.
I still can't believe you hacked off a Fuji exhaust :P but still, i guess you don't come by JDM cats or decats so much over there?

never thought about getting a de-cat, or a jdm cat... and yea its rare over here... but i was desperate to get it installed ASAP... since i had the exhaust sitting in the garage for 7 months.
