Let me start off by saying that I was very impressed by the quality of this exhaust at first. I put it on and then things started to go wrong... there was always a rattle around 1750 rpm and shortly after I put it on the metal on the flex connector began to come off. It wasn't until a few months ago that I noticed that the rear axle had hit the exhaust pipe and put a dent in it. Shortly after that I heard a rattling coming from the exhaust bracket near the cat... I tried to bring it to the local Toyota dealership to have them fix the bracket and the flex connector and they tried to sell me a brand new exhaust system. I original spent the 1350$ on the ems exhaust because I thought it was going to last the "lifetime of my cruiser" and I figured that was a better investment the few hundred dollars that my factory exhaust needed to be fixed. Has any else had issues like this?? How good is ems about covering their lifetime warranty?
