Bull - Take it from someone that learned the hard way, (2) 572cuin motors, don't skimp on the price for your exhaust !!! Salt water, stay away from aluminum or those porcelin coated exhaust. Go with a good quality stainless exhaust. I like CMI's personaly. Wardey

Nevermind Bull. I didn't realize that your pipes were leaking too. That is my problem. Mine are not Gil's though, they are from Conner Marine, now defunct.

Anyone have problems with the CMI's cracking in cold water applications?

I have CMI, but do not spend the extra for CMI to do dry tails. They are unable to make the tailbpipes completely dry. You are better off having them welded and repolished. I have two sets and so far they are holding up just fine. Sound bad ass.
