In Reply to: exhaust damage posted by Thorsten from germany on September 28, 1998 at 14:44:07: I decide to renew the welding seam. Is there someone who had the same problem or who knows something about that?

Careful: an exhaust system with solid welds and no flex joints becomes one great big "tuning fork" which vibrates with every rev of your engine. Doesn't take too long for the pipe to break into pieces, often at the cat... expensive!
