|Green9kAERO||I Prefer MikeD's Method, because it usually works out nicely. You buy Mandrel Bends, Muffler, Pipe, and a Mig Welder..... After the Exhaust is done you get a free welder out of the deal|

|mike d||i would assume a full exhaust comes with atleast one 02 bung,, if not im sure every person who ever purchased on would complain very quickly..|

Just realized this is the 9-5 section (im smart). Oh well, it still works haha.
We all know how clean i keep my cars, being this is going on a vert ill want to keep as much salt off the car, especially the top, as i can, so rusting SHOULDNT be an issue....right away. Oh and im going catless, and doing the 2 muffler set-up. I figure without the cat, would probably be too annoying with the 1 muffler system.
Im probably going to give it a coat of high-temp paint for good measure.
Although, one question i do have, the JT system does NOT come with the o2 bungs does it? Id have to create my own?

the second 02 can be removed in software on both t5 and t7 cars so no big deal if it lacks a cat..
T7 does not use the second 02 to adjust fueling if the proper software changes have been made
i work under the logic of get the single muffler, and add one in if its to loud!
as far as quality is concerned,, ive always DIYed the downpipe, then seen a custom exhaust shop for the rest.
if i was truly worried about quality, i would coat the system with some cheap high temp (typically gas grill) spray paint, it seams to add 2-4 years of life to the system..

|Cark||The Christmas season seems to be going well for me, lots of overtime and a bonus on the way. I think I'm going to treat myself to a GS Downpipe and finally get the car retuned. If I could get just the JT DP I probably would, but I have no interest in the entire JT exhaust system. Aside from it being a tad on the pricey side, I've heard nothing but great things about the GS pipe. I'm really looking forward to it.|

You would be A-Okay with the JT system. Only reason I didn't get it for mine is because it was on backordered for months and then I got a killer deal on a used GS stainless system.
I had made a similar thread wondering about how the JT would hold up in salt, and the consensus was that it has lasted for years for some people.
Your rear O2 could be turned off via T7 Suite...but I'm not sure how the T7 works with the two cats.

glad i found this thread as ive been thinking about a full JT exhaust.
midwest peeps chime in....will i be alright putting this on a DD that i keep pretty clean during the winter?
being in WI i technically dont need a cat...BUT....will i need it for my o2 sensors? (i have a 01 vert SE)

High temp paint, if done correctly will keep an exhaust from rotting on the outside. Then you will have to worry about rot coming from the inside out.

|Aerolike9||i got mine installed and its rubbing on a bolt under the car...|

|viggenkid||as i recall he was shipped the wrong exhaust.|
|05-11-2009 02:14 PM|
1-3 weeks, my ass

I've never seen my exhausts rot from the inside out... my mufflers are always shiny on the inside after the shells have rusted out externally.
Living in the woods of Maine, I don't know the definition of a "short trip".

|christian900se||POR 15 it, and you will pretty much be gauranteed never to have rust issues ever again|

So, I ordered the exhaust last weekend from GenuineSaab, went with the 2 muffler system. I'm gonna hit the whole thing with high-temp paint, most of my exhaust failures in the past have been external rust related.
I also scored a new magnaflow 3" cat on fleabay for not too much money.
There's 1-3 week ship time from Sweden... so now I'm playing the waiting game. The car's inspection runs out the end of this month so I am probably stuck taking my Camry to the next NESA meeting since I doubt I'll have the exhaust on the car+inspected/registered by the 4th.
