Just a quick gripe and query if any others have had similiar with HKS super dragger exhaust back box.
While routing around under the car (as you do when the wifes nagging and the rain is pouring), noticed that the exhaust pipe into the rear box was corroded almost all the way round and that corrosion spreads along the pipe in way of a seam.
Thought these HKS super dragger exhausts were all seamless pipe and stainless?
Exhaust is definitely a HKS super dragger as its stamped on it.
Does anyone know if the back box can be bought seperate otherwise will have to try and weld it (good fun in the rain).
Only plus points!!! Gives me a reason to route around under the car more away from the wife. Oh and the sound from exhaust is definetly louder.

Most of the exhausts that come out of Japan have stainless steel back boxes but rear pipes are normally mild steel, which are prone to rust/rot.

My HKS one was in good nick though, Super Dragger too.
