The Banks 3-inch stainless steel Monster exhaust for the '05 Nissan Frontier 4.0L is designed to be a direct-fit, bolt-on system that flows 104 percent more than the stock factory exhaust, while reducing backpressure by more than 93 percent. Leveraging the stock hangers, ground straps, and rear balancer, Banks Monster exhaust replaces the crimped 2-1/4- inch stock exhaust with an all-stainless steel mandrel-bent system that uses larger-diameter pipes, optimizing exhaust flow. The entire system is backed with a lifetime warranty and is fully compatible with Nissan's factory warranty.

Wrap Your Pipes
DEI has just introduced a line of black exhaust wrap of varying lengths and widths to go along with the company's existing line of wrap. Black exhaust wrap is gaining popularity, especially among sport compact owners, or where the engine compartment appearance is just as important as how the interior or exterior look. Black wrap serves as an alternative to the more common "natural" or neutral exhaust wrap color, and black often blends in well with other underhood components. All DEI exhaust wraps can withstand continuous heat as much as 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit and are available in 15-, 50- and 100-foot lengths and either 1- or 2-inch widths.

Changing nitrous bottles can be a hassle, especially between rounds when time is a factor and tools are scarce. The gearheads at Nitrous Pro-Flow have devised a way to swap NO2 bottles in a snap without handtools. The Nutbuster wing-style wrench stays attached to the line fitting, and a plastic-tipped setscrew retains the wrench without damaging your aluminum fittings. A quick flick of the wrist detaches or re-fastens the fitting, which means you can swap bottles in seconds. CNC-machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum, the Nitrous Pro-Flow Nutbuster is lightweight and durable, and is currently available for -4 and -6 line.
