You haven't seen copper exhaust because it is not a good idea. I wondered myself years ago; why isn't copper used at higher temperatures? It has reasonable high temperature oxidation resistance. The problem is that copper oxides have a significantly different thermal expansion rate from the metal so the oxide layer spalls off as the metal goes through heat ...

It will leave a nice matte finish on your pipes after application. For a better application that will last longer you might need to sandpaper your pipes thoroughly first and rub them with some alcohol solution prior to ...

Assuming you got the cause of the overheating resolved, then a warped cylinder head is, at this point, a likely problem causing water to be sucked from the cooling system into the combustion chamber. Other than excessive water vapor and condensate at the tailpipe, another symptom is that the coolant level will drop as you run the engine and you will not be ...

Water is a byproduct of the fuel combustion process. Generally it exits the tailpipe as vapor. That a little condenses to liquid is not a surprise or a problem. With that said, generally water droplets are visible at the end of the tail pipe, not generally in the middle. I think a bigger question is “Does this joint leak exhaust fumes when the vehicle is ...
