Hey guys,

I just bought a used Si axleback exhaust to replace my stock r18 exhaust. The only problem I have is that the exhaust finisher is covered in... black. The carbon build up seems hard to get off. Any tips?

i use wenol metal polisher for pots and pans. available at williams sonoma.
best part is that not only does it clean the surface very well, it leaves
behind a protective film that can withstand hot temps (pots and pans duh).

surprise your girl/wife by telling her you MUST to go to williams sonoma...
like now. lol

also get a better flowing intake or vtec controller...your a/f is rich.

what about us with ti-c? i heard you can rub the burnt tip off =X
yep, that purplish color does polish off if you use wenol or any
metal polishes. for that, i would use polymer based detailer spray
(Prima Slick or Meg NXT QD or something) and wipe off using a
soft MF towel.

ofcourse the exhaust needs to be cool to the touch when you're
working on it. :laughing:
