Default exhaust soot

hi everyone..i checked about 6 GTRs at a dealer and found the exhaust outlets deposited with black soot( carbon deposits).for normal cars the deposit is brownish suggesting a proper fuel-air mixture ..if the mixture is too rich with fuel, the combustion won't be complete and hence the carbon deposits.. any explanation?

It's normal on the GT-R or any force induction cars. From the factory, they usually run a bit richer.

The fuel quality that is offered is Euro 2 and results in ALL cars in Malaysia having deposit build up around the exhaust tip.

Great reply..never used forced induction b4 and never thought about euro 2..anyway i seriously need help to choose a good 2008 or 09 GTR, anyone can help? so far i have learned about 1. chassis number ; choose >5000 2. i love white GTR but run the risk of backside becoming yellowish so maybe I'll accept gun metal or what the heck..white with yellow tail may be fun 3. ST Kenneth may b able to help but so far I have not met the gentleman yet, only heard from u guys.. I am eager to buy now but have to go thru the various safety net to avoid getting a lemon..anyone knows how much Kenneth charges to inspect a car? I hope to get mine soon .Thanks guys

You can always remedy the rear bumper from turning stained by putting a sticker to shape above the exhaust tip area just as some of the owners here have done.

Oops! just absent for a while...

Turbo cars smoke as ATLsupra said. ^^

Oh Midship, just remove my exhaust protect sticker cause it really turn my whole bumper yellow, small size can't help when reach 700hp wahaha...

Now I extend my exhaust tips inch+ longer, it helps!
