I've had this Exhaust since 02. Being 9 years old it has not rusted at all and still sounds great. I searched everywhere for this at the time and actually found one in Japan in somewhere house. I went with the stainless steel painted black. I cannot recommend it enough if they are still around.
BTW: This was paired with DC header which the down pipe section has rusted and fallen apart already. The durability of DC did not impress me... Now that i'm working on the lude again I just ordered today a Private Label MFG Power Driven H series Tri-Y Header. Ill post the review after the install.
