Just wondering if anyone has heard of or purchased this exhaust, seems very cheap for a stainless system. I would imagine that it is a overseas manufactured system.-

- 100% Brand New.
- Made of High Quality SS304 Stainless Steel
- 1.66mm Wall thickness
- Exactly Same as the Picture
- Tig Weld
- Direct Bolt-On System, Utilizes All Your Original Mounts
- 3inch Mandrel Bent System
- This System does not have a Cat Converter

I think you will find 304 grade SS is not ideal for an exhaust and may suffer fatigue cracking
Check with some off the more reputable suppliers and I think you will find they use a different grade

You want to find someone who has had this exact exhaust fitted for over 2 years and then you can see if it is any good.

Sure the exhaust may be 304 but what filler rods did they use in the welding process and what quality...... for weld strength and durability you need to use a quality 304 filler so the base material doesn't become diluted leading to failures.

Chances are it is good quality and has been processed to worlds best practices..... but who knows, there are good and bad from overseas.

304 is good for exhausts but anything other then a show car or high bragging rights I would recommend an every day high quality mild steel for 4x4ing.

Opps forgot to add stainless doesn't like heat cycling and can crack.

Unless it's seamless tube the seam is still prone to deterioration too from memory.

Look to what the major exhaust companies like Pacemaker and Genie use in their Stainless systems and you will see they use grade 409 Stainless.
It's not a shiney grade like 304 and forms a fine patina of what appears rustlike but it doesn't progress any further that.
Excellent properties for high temp heat cycling and very good high temperature corrosion resistance makes the best grade of Stainless to use for exhausts.
