    Haha 'walkintosh'. Anyways walkinshaw have different tips made out of billet and are stainless steel, so shouldn't rust. That's also just the muffler by the way.

    These are walkinshaw mufflers

    Yours look like aftermarket mild steel mufflers so no warranty of any sort on those. Mild steel rusts, stainless steel doesn't. If the rest of the exhaust is mild steel and your worried about rust then change over to a stainless steel one, stock ones are stainless.

    Those mufflers look like stock mufflers from an SS, with some slip on tips added...
    Stock SS mufflers are a dime a dozen....

    Have a look on eBay, it will cost you more on shipping than it would to buy the mufflers...
    Aftermarket mufflers tend to have some branding on them (Obviously the Walkinshaw mufflers do, and I know XForce mufflers do as well)...

    SS mufflers are more box like. Those are definitely aftermarket ones. Berklee maybe?

    they are certainly not walkinshaw ones, and i doubt that stock ones would rust quickly so early.

    replace it with stainless steel one if you're worried about it rusting out.

    Doesn't really matter what it is you replace them with. Anything will bolt up to it. No idea what those top ones are but they're ****. Have a chat to an exhaust shop and see what fits your budget.



    ???? How can it drone AND sound nice. That doesn't work.



    OE mufflers won't rust out as they're 409 stainless.

    Answer NO!!
    You can't weld rust, looks like a really cheap muffler just got to a shop and ask for a cheapest sports muffler that looks like the one you have, get them to put the old tips on it to match the other side and half hour later and the job is done.

    you need to buy new mufflers (aftermarket ones), Or you could just keep the stock while you have them!
