[DML] Re: rusty DMC dual exhaust

That would be great if DMCH made an all stainless exhaust! I hope the decision
not to has changed.

But according to James in this thread ( http://tinyurl.com/24mlyd ) on
DMCTalk.com (Specifically post #49 here: http://tinyurl.com/26rp2y and #50 here:
http://tinyurl.com/ys2anv ) he said, in so many words, that they are not going to
be making it in all stainless.

- Sure - wouldn't that be ideal? Other than the discoloration problem 
- and the higher cost of materials, I see no reason why not to do it this way. 
- It's already a limited market product, so adding this expense doesn't, on the 
- surface, seem like a viable alternative however.

It isnt DMCH's coating that is the problem, it is how the exhaust is  
laid out. The Converters hang low and are behind the tires and get a  
constant spray of any debris on the road.

When I sold my car everything was perfect except the areas that would  
get sprayed with road debris.

It was like sandblasting the coating away as you were driving.

Really it is a shame that DMCH hasnt commented lately on this new  
issue. It is also a shame the owners have to remove this exhaust that  
was originally a pain to install in the first place. The owners  
should almost be compensated to send their exhaust in to get recoated.

For myself it was a poor design flaw on DMCH on how they laid the  
exhaust route out.

Now we all know why DMCH discontinued selling this exhaust unless you  
were getting a Stage II engine.

Last I heard they were going stainless and would be offering a  
discounted upgrade to original Stage I exhaust owners.
