Exhaust rust

I have Silverline T-409 Turbo-back kit on my truck. The other day I noticed alot of rust at the junction to the mid-pipe and the cat delete. Has anyone else noticed this with there kits. I've only had it installed for a couple months and i'm down in the southwest. Thanks

wash the underside of your truck more to keep the salt buildup from coroding your exhaust. and any other parts that could get eaten up.

My 409 has a decent amount of surface rust coating on it, and I even kept it clean as possible in the winter time.

409 isn't the best grade for that, but it shouldn't get too bad.

I dunno, it might be worth it and might not be. If it was me, I wouldn't worry about it unless it's rusting so bad it's getting brittle and holes through it.

Ya im not sure on the price of it but im sure it would be expensive. I was thinking it would look good too though. Something that no one else has.

It would look pretty neat. You'd have to price it out, It'll be at least the same price as the exhaust.

Some of the rust may contribute to the actual material properties, it might have not been as good as the previous batch or whatnot. You don't get an actual material cert with the exhaust so whatever information the manufacturer gets you'll have to just explore other options if you want to deal with the rust.

Something I've been meaning to do before it gets too cold, you could take some sand paper and rub an area of it just to see how thick it is.
