Agree. All my pipes - SRI, IC (which are all custom for me ) have wonderful beads on them. Almost to the point where it's really hard to get the air filter off it's soo tight.My 2J FMIC pipes have full beads on every single pipe or more correctly IC tubing. Also don't have the million weld joints these do.
It looks like the entire IC tube was already chopped and that doesn't look like the original tube anyway.
