RE: Subject: Re: 4kq Center Muffler

Yep, my experience too.

Original exhaust on my 4kq ('87) lasted about 6 years (120k miles). replaced
it with a Blau unit, which did bolt up perfectly and looked original, it
lasted about 18+ months or 30k miles. Makes the dealer item look cheap if
you price it by the mile or month.
