i just called Conquest Customs a few days ago and they told me they are discontinuing their second version of the Ground Pounders and are working on a new version which wont need an oil cooler relocate for the 2008+ bikes, and are going to offer them in a mild steel as well as stainless.

anybody else have any more info on them, or know the difference between the mild and stainless exhausts? i dont ride in much inclement weather, and the bike never sees salt as i put er away early to ensure that, would i be alright just going with the mild steel as a cheaper alternative?

Subscribing... I'm fixing to have to replace my exhaust, was considering octanes or groundpounders.

I'd like it if they had o2 bungs so I could use my existing autotune, but i guess with the larger pipe diameter and shorter length recursion is an issue.

Mild steel will rust but it'll take many years before it'd be a problem.
Can paint with VHT and touch up occasionally, Or I suppose powdercoating would be another option, most car headers are just mild steel and last for decades,
I got 7 years so far outta a set of hundred dollar swap meet, well used 4-1 headers on my V8 Ford,they're still going strong
Definitely cheaper than stainless,
Cheaper stainless will rust too though.
Ya get what you pay for.

The new Ground Pounders are on Conquest Customs latest bike. They look great!

They are on Bullit and the blue bike he has just done.
