The 350Z can actually get away with it since it's a legit sports car. Plus Nissan designs its exhaust so it doesn't need much modification.

You get down to it, all companies design their exhaust to not need much done to it.


I agree, the 350z exhaust sounds good from the factory.

The first time the dealer drove my MS3 into the garage for me and I heard its exhaust I was really convinced it wasn't stock because it was so much louder than my s40's exhaust. It's all stock though...

Except that Nissan actually went thru the trouble of designing valves in the muffler(s) that redirected exhaust as needed to evacuate gases quicker from the exhaust system and produce a deeper sound. The technology was initially introduced on the then new 1999 Nissan Maxima and then filtered down to the rest of Nissan's car lineup.

The current definition of RICE has nothing to do with make/model. "Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements", says nothing about it having to be a Japanese car, and since that Focus looks stock other than the paint and rims, that pretty much concretes its place in the Hall of WTF, in My ever-so-humble opinion, lol.
