SPT exhaust durability
Does anyone in the 'salt belt' run a SPT exhaust ? How is is holding up ? I'm looking at getting the cat-back, but didn't want to kill it in upstate NY over the winter.

I've had mine for 2 years in MN winters and it's holding up great. If I would shine it up it wouldn't even look that used. Just a few minor surface rust spots here and there, but not many. I'm pretty happy with how it's holding up.

I've had mine through 3 Wisconsin winters and approx 58K miles. Still looks good. Some surface rust at the welds, but nothing close to perforation.

4 Canadian winters. No rust on the cans or pipes, but surface rust on the welds and flanges. nothing some bbq paint won't fix

SPT v2 here, in NYC so plenty of salt around. Have had the exhaust since... I think 2009. Still holding up well from what I can remember seeing.
