5Zigen – pronounced go-jigen in Japanese (meaning “fifth dimension”) – was founded back in 1987 and quickly became one of the most popular brands in the JDM tuning world designing and producing performance exhaust systems for a variety of cars.
Since then the company has grown significantly, expanding into markets like the US and continuing to come out with cool new exhaust designs as well as expanding into a variety of other products like lightweight wheels.
Their main factory is equipped with all the industrial machinery that you would ever need to knock out hundreds of complete systems a day.
Despite most of the heavy work being handled by machines every step of the productions process is overlooked by takumi or “artisans” that feed sections of pre-cut pipes into the mandrel tube benders…
Aside from silencer type and design one of the most popular custom options at 5Zigen is tail pipes and above is an example of one of their most popular range for “dress up” applications. The burned titanium look is obtained thanks to a titanium coating applied to the stainless steel tip that can be made to have that blue, purple and gold variation of colors that more expensive and performance oriented titanium exhausts have.
All exhausts are fabricated as each order comes in, but to facilitate and speed up the process a big stock of ready shaped and ready to go sections are kept in the warehouse.
Aside from the main factory area the 5Zigen HQ is also home to the company’s motorsports section. Ever since being established over 25 years ago, racing has been a very big part of their operation.
