I'm currently looking into these. I'll have some sound clips and dyno sheets soon. The exhaust gave the FJ a beefy V8 tone and (I was told) does give some good gains in the mid-range (skepticism will be removed once the dyno sheets are up, ha ha) when coupled with the Airaid cold air box intake system.

More info to come!! :roller:

Re: LowProFlow Dual Outlet Catback Exhaust

Cool... Can't wait to see the sheets and the sound clip. Nothing sounds like a V8 yet.

Re: LowProFlow Dual Outlet Catback Exhaust

They have the sound clips on FJ Cruiser Specialist, the home for all things FJ. However, I can't get them to work for me.

Yup! They are the FJCSpecialist's (originally FJ Cruiser Outfitters) exhaust system. The sound clips (for some reason) are in .MOV (quicktime) format. Once I get QT on my laptop, I'll convert over to MP3 so it's more universal. I may bring my MD recorder and record it also (ordering some next week).

MD Recorder: Sony's other failed format (in the US, anyhow) buahaha. I just can't stand iPods; iPods are too mainstream for my taste.

Added picture:
It won't kill off ground clearance (tucked in close to the body) and was rated to give a overall approx 8hp and 15tq when installed w/ the y-pipe option (weld on!!) and Airaid cold air intake. (Again, pending Dyno sheets from FJCS)

THe claimed increase from the entire system (8hp / 15 lb/ft) is less than what Airaid has said for the filter system alone - what with the exhaust ???

Good deal. I like this kit and the way it looks, but it's a bit on the pricey side. Might have to do a group buy, wink wink.;)

Hahaha!! That'll most likely be the case. Once I have all the information, I'll start that up (hopefully some info before SEMA).

CruiserLarry: I believe the Airaid quote is for flywheel power, and an estimate. I'd like to wait until the Dyno sheets are available before speaking more about the added hp. I'm hoping to get 4 dyno sheets (stock, cat-back only, cat-back + y-pipe, cat-back + y-pipe + airaid) so everyone can pick the correct application for their vehicles.

Guys the cat back exhaust with dual outlet is an improvement and a great addition for folks wanting two exit pipes. I really like the idea that the muffler has been relocated behind the rear axle.

One tweak to design that I would suggest is routing of the exhaust from the "Y" to the muffler closer to the drive shaft to eliminate wasted space. By relocating the exhaust parallel, but closer, to the drive shaft ,there will be space between the frame and exhaust to add something later (such as an auxillary fuel tank).

Can we do this? I keep hearing that it would violate EPA regulations, but this would be my number 1 mod if I could do it.

Sorry, back on topic - I like the looks of this and am interested in the price vs performance analysis.

Update:
The Dyno sheets should be ready a few weeks after SEMA (mid Nov).

I think relocating next to the drive shaft would be feasible, but the hangers for the exhaust would go on the aux. tank itself. I am not sure about regulations regarding distance from the drive shaft though.

I like it, just one concern. What kind of heat shield is above the muffler protecting the plastic control box mounted to the underside of the body?

None. there is no need. even after idling for over an hour in the driveway on a day with no wind and using a laser thermometer there is no apreciable rise in temp on the plastic box. the box temp was only 12 degrees higher than ambient temperature.
