There’s no question that the Infiniti G35 is continuously increasing in popularity in the tuning scene, with prices more tempting than ever before and owners are keen to get the best performance gains and sound out of their G-Series.

An exhaust is undoubtedly one of the first modifications that every owner should make to allow your VQ35DE (or HR) engine breathe as freely as possible whilst also offering an improved sound which we think it should’ve left the factory with.

Once you’ve found the perfect exhaust, make sure you also upgrade your cold air intake to maximize the breathing potential that these awesome engines have to offer.

Who is this exhaust guide for?

We have written this exhaust guide to help you decide on your G35’s new exhaust system by giving product information, pricing, photos and video clips for twelve of the most popular G35 exhaust systems currently available. We have also included links for where you can purchase each system.

If you’re looking to go all the way with a full exhaust system then make sure you also take a moment to check out our headers and test pipes guides.

You may think that since they share the same engine, the 350Z and G35 exhausts would be identical, but unfortunately, that’s not the case. If you’re dead set on a 350Z exhaust or perhaps picked up a cheap used one, don’t panic!

There are plenty of extensions on the market. We recommend the 8” version which we’ve generally found to be the perfect fit.

Which G35 exhaust is our winner?

Japanese tuning house HKS has stood the test of time and continuously delivered an impeccable standard to the market. The quality, sound, and popularity of this exhaust speaks for itself, and combined with its mid-range price point we, therefore, find it our worthy winner.

There is a huge variety of exhausts to suit any needs you may have and we highly recommend ignoring the small horsepower gains between options and going with the exhaust which you like the look and sound of the most.

However, if you think you may go for forced induction further down the line then consider one of the larger diameter options.

hks g35 exhaust

The HKS Hi-Power exhaust has ticked the most boxes for us this time around. Offering an affordable price point combined with a great looking product from an extremely reputable manufacturer.

If money is not an issue, we’d be opting for the Meisterschaft exhaust. Absolutely incredible workmanship combined with the electronic noise control would make it the perfect choice for your daily driver.

Open it up at the track and close it up when parking up or passing the cops, (but we didn’t tell you that!)
