NRP Exhaust

Has anyone had this kind of issue with the chrome exhaust end? This is after 2 years in a non-salt environment.

I would reach out to them directly and tell them you've uploaded pics to an open searchable forum and look forward to their resolution. It looks like cheap stainless steel was used.

My 15 yr old NRP looks like that.... but it's solid! Well except for the rusted out welds in the crotch of the Ypipe. I had heard they have improved the welds since then.

It isn't 316 steel. It does oxidize.

Here is a better pic. It's the chrome end that crapped out.
