I had a Pacesetter as my first exhaust on my Honda. First impression was that it was a decent exhaust, and the muffler was a very nice design (so it seemed). After a years use, it was unbelievably rusted and I all connections were so tight that I had to cut it apart. Not a bad exhuast for the price, but for a year round (north-east) daily driver, anything not corrosion resistant is doomed.
i live in canada and there is lots of snow ice and salt. i don't wont too mess lead anyone but i have no problems with mine at all, no muffler blowing out no holes(knock on wood). for the price i think it is great,
I'm not from anywhere cold, but a friend of mine (who's from Utah) says the secret is to preventing rust is to wash the underside of your car once a week. Just spray water underneath. He said it works better than rustproofing. He had a 300ZX btw. :?:
Our housing contracter drives an older F350 with zero rust. We asked how he did it, he said he jacks the thing up into the air, gives it a thorough wash, and paints it with black Rustoleum every summer. Don't know if that would work with an exhaust system, tho. I suppose if you found some high-temperature paint and did it that way...
I suppose the best way to prolong the life of an exhaust system is to drive the car. I let my old muffler--it wasn't one of these, just generic junk--sit in the parking lot for a couple months, only able to drive it on weekends, and thats all it took to punch a hole. I think it has something to do with the water just sitting in the pipe, rusting away at the metal when it isn't running.
i had a similar experience to boud92si. cheap, pretty good sound, LOUD on the highway with no cat converter. fitment is outstanding, i was VERY surprised. first thing tho... remove the ghay yellow sticker on the muffler tip.
the muffler won't clear an aftermarket sway bar, so you will have to dent in the canister seam with a hammer. nothing major.
