Recently got the Saab exhaust tip for the Saab Sport exhaust. Was using a chrome straight tip.

Anyway, heavy black soot is building up on the bottom half of the rounded edge of the exhaust tip. The rounded edge seems to collect it more than the straight tip did.

Saab has 50K miles and I have owned it since 30K.

Is this normal?

Mines nasty as hell, too. My car runs like a top *knock on wood*.

Now, how 'bout we turn this into a "best way to clean it" thread?!?! :cheesy:

a sooty exhaust is not always attribited to rich mixture, it can be a result of short journies and the exhaust not getting very hot, this allows the gasses to condence and stick to the inside where as if it was up to temp the gasses would pass with out condencing
