not an expert but if their not to far gone, media blast them and then a good quality high temp paint.
why would you spend the money to get it media blasted when you can just sand it down? it is just surface rust 5min of sanding it will be good

Why not do the collector mod while your at it?

DC header is very restrictive which makes doing the collector mod that much more worth it.

Damn, i've had my Rex since 08 and never heard of this mod. 2 inch collector is rather small. I think my exhaust past the header is larger. My car was swapped back to D16 before it was sd to me. Previous owner has a B16 turbo so it looks like the exihaust is 2.25 or 2.5 . I wish I nknew of this sooner, now I'm only putting money towarda turbo build
