my entire pipe yellowed after less than 1000 mi., flange bolts to tips, I'd say this is normal.
so I cleaned them with S100 and hot soapy water and microfiber $2
then polished them with AUTOSOL ( apply, leave for 30 seconds, work-in
you can see the surface change, little water beads pop up, blue brown or yellow will disappear)
within a 1-2 minutes of working with AUTOSOL clear the surface with PROTECT-ALL
( if you leave a high end premium chrome cleaner like autosol on there it will crack, errode or eat through chrome )
( on the upside, it actually will remove the brown, blue, whatever, unlike cheaper OTC dealer chrome polish )
wipe down with clean damp microfiber.
I also use damp microfibers all throughout, one for initial cleaning, one for polish, one for sealer, one for final inspection....
I guess having brown pipes makes me lucky, I think blue is hot.
What someone else said was true, we will end up changing these pipes and changing them often.
After "baby-sitting" true duals for years, I really prefer the 2 into 1. Way less headache.
