thematz: 2011 Versa S

After spending quite some time on the forums I decided I should probably start my "build" thread. I'll start off with the day I brought her home.


Don't mind the messy garage. It has since been cleaned.


Then came the first round of bolt ons which include a K&N panel filter and a Stillen axelback.


After the exhaust was installed I got a exhaust shop to heat up the hangers so the muffler would not hang so low on my S bumper.


More to come later.

Nice start. Those axle-backs have nice, deep, but mellow sound to them.

Update time. I never got the 240 wheels on so I'm just saving for something even better. The Stillen axelback does sound great without droning or being too loud.

I recently had a factory spoiler installed and gave her a good wash and wax.

Took my front license plate off then took a picture next to my girlfriends Fit Sport. I'm sort of jealous of the paddle shifters on it.

the paddle shifters are nice, but the extra few thousand dollars those cost over the versa isn't

Looks much better with the factory wing. Remove that dealership decal and it'll be golden.

Hi I would be interested to hear an audio of your exhaust? Any chance you could record a few seconds of idle and revs and post or pm me for my email address? Thanks, Ken

I don't have any equipment that would really pick up how the exhaust sounds. Here is a video someone else made though.
I'm ready to buy some more mods.

Sometimes I miss my stillen axle back... it made just enough noise. My DC is too loud
