The Stainless Steel exhaust systems popular now (because of the acids in
catalytic converter exhaust eating out steel pipes) go on just about
forever. I used to have a Chrysler product that had 208K miles on the
original pipes. As with you, muffler only had been replaced three times.
Pipes were still good when we junked the rest of the car.
