There is some talk of consolidation of styles at CMI since there's some overlap in product, but as far as I know, the Splits are still available.

The CMI web site was recently upgraded and they still list the product.

If they're in good shape Phil, I see no issues. I stock all the parts for them. Clamps, gaskets, seals etc are all readily available.

Buying used exhaust is like buying used condoms.

Condoms can be used twice. You just turn it inside out and shake the f#%k out of it.

The new sweeper style is within 10% of the hp of the split tube based on some testing I've witnessed and I would guess far less costly to produce.
