I want to get this because my NIssan dealer recently told me mine needed to be replaced at a cost of $900 for parts and labor ($720 for the part itself). Well, what would happen, from my understanding, is that i'd be down to just 1 cat if I put this part in. So would I be able to pass emissions with just 1 cat? I live in Jersey, btw. 10-20 hp gains is awesome, especially at the wheels. Have any of you put this in? Whats your experience with it?

1) Dealers rape you with charges
2) Emissions entirely depends on your state. If your state uses OBD2 and you throw a code, then no
3) This should be covered under the powetrain warranty of your car

Why does yours need to be replaced? If it's just a flex pipe leak, any muffler shop should be able to weld on a new flexpipe for $50 or so.

It might be 10whp, 20whp is unlikely without adding intake and the rest of the exahust as well...

I dont even know why it needs to be replaced. Something about being low efficiency, even though the lservice engine light hasnt come back on since its been reset. Here's a description of it:

Item Number List Core Price Price
200203Y400 $609.38 $0.00 $457.04
Exhaust system - Front pipe
FRONT PIPE, Maxima, California 2000

Like I said, your powertrain warranty should most likely cover this, the dealer might just not be honoring it.

exhaust parts are excluded from powertrain warranties, I think. let me know if not, so i can make some heads roll

Are you sure? And what parts of your warranty is still active and what has expired? I am pretty sure the powertrain warranty does cover it although I may be wrong.

Car is pre-certified, meaning 7year/100K powertrain + I got a warranty to cover all other components. But the fine print excludes the exhaust system, and wearable parts. However, the light hasnt come back on since its been reset almost a week ago.

The powertrain warranty might not cover the exhaust,but isn't this part of the emission warranty,cause it has two precat on it,so it should be cover up to 7yrs right? :rolleyes:

And about the y pipe,you should be able to pass emission with no problem,depend on your state too.In Houston we got OBD2 and my bro's 01 pass with no problem,with the y pipe and intake combo you'll love it. :thumbup:

Indeed... this should be covered under emissions, if that warranty is still in effect.
The federal emissions warranty is still in effect, if thats what you are talking about. The dealer told me its not covered under any of my warranties

:thumbup: I had a feeling that you could work the warranty. Good call to call them and I'm glad you dont have an out of pocket expense. Hope everything goes well.

catalytic convertors covered 8yrs/ 80,000 miles

Extended warranties by security plus (nissan extended) do not cover catalytic convertors.
Its obvious you are within 8years, its the 80,000 miles if you are past that point or not.

Powertrain warranty is 5yr/ 60,000mi

The STILLEN Y-Pipe may not resolve your problem if your catalytic convertor is bad.

If you have done the P0420/P0430 reprogramming, you may need to replace both rear oxygen sensors on vehicle before your put on the STILLEN Y-Pipe.

Your 'self learn ecu' will try to compensate for the errors in the oxygen sensors, and cause your car to run real rich and you will lose fuel economy and power.
