    Exhausts with high clearance and FMIC options?

    The roads down in Cornwall are terrible pot holes and speed bumps everywhere, I'm looking into a BPU and would like some advice on exhausts with as much clearance as possible and a FMIC that will allow me to keep my panel filter while requiring as little extra work as possible.

    Thanks Dan

    Any front mount shouldn't be an issue to keep the OE airbox, its just the pipework in the engine bay
    you have to fiddle with.

    I had the HKS R spec FMIC but made custom pipe work to keep the airbox

    If I was to do it again I would go Chris Wilson’s uprated SMIC, no real need for a FMIC unless your thinking about going big power in the future. As stated it’s the pipe work that is the issue with keeping the stock air box, I had my pipe work made up so I could keep the stock air box with my Blitz 4” 3 Row FMIC.

    With exhausts, I’ve had the Blitz Nur Spec R, Whifbitz 4” TI and currently now running the HKS Hi-Power Racing. The HKS is the best for clearance, the Blitz being the worst.

    Agree with Rob, i wouldn't go the FMIC route again either as i was only going to BPU, i didn't
    know any better then

    If my car developed turbo issues i'd possibly have fitted a small single which CW's smic will deal with as well.

    I had HKS Super Drager and it used to catch the odd speed hump but the car was lowered on Eibachs, i welded a skid plate to the exhaust so no issues with it having a hole worn in it

    CW SMIC instead of FMIC

    For ground clearance the Tannabe Touring exhausts are pretty damn good as they follow similar lines to the stock and tuck up instead of running straight down the chassis.

    Thanks for all the advice so far guys my main reason for fmic was more because I don't like the gap in the prelift bumper, but it makes more sense to go smic as I'm not going above bpu.

    You could get a quality mesh to help lose the hole in the bumper

    If your bumper is pre-facelift the Zunsport grilles fit nicely.

    No mate they make one for the supra but only really fits pre-facelift. They're on eBay i think just look for an authorised seller i guess.

    For exhaust clearance, avoid the Blitz Nur Spec as it hangs really low. I find my HKS Carbon Ti sits a lot better but is not immune from the odd scrape over a speed bump - although, my Supra is lowered a little

    I have a 3" Tanabe Touring Medallion exhaust which has excellent ground clearence by following the stock route. It's a quiet exhaust most of the time, unless giving it some.

    If you want to keep the active spolier blade (if you have one) retractable you'd need a SMIC rather than a FMIC.

    Here's a link for the Zun grills. There are side grills for the outer intakes also. They will fit both pre and facelift bumpers and either type of indicators. The facelift splitter bar (if you had one) would have to come off though.

    Have the Zun grills on mine, here's a pic of the black ones.
