    05 RXP Broken Exhaust Manafold

    I removed my J-Pipe today and noticed that 1/4 of the lip at the end of the exhaust manafold was broken off. My RXP was still turning 8100 RPM's and running a solid 75 mph with this broken. Has this happened to anyone else? Anyone running with part of the exhause manafold lip broken off?

    Yea, it seems to be a common thing when people run higher boost and more speed...Mine is all gone and no worries...

    Thanks for the reply. I was surprised to see that the pieces that broke off welded themselves to the inside of the J-Pipe!
