Lots of chatter on the board lately about IE, it is undergoing a change of ownership.

They never have been stellar about answering the phone and if it happens to be racing season it gets worse.

Theres also been a lot of chatter on the board regarding their SS exhaust systems, most of it negative. 
Main complaint? They rattle. Convinced me to reconsider buying, that and the fact that they are usually out of stock.

Here is one of many rattling-resonator threads.  I don't think another IE resonator would be a good solution.  There were/are lot of people having the same problem with the replacement.

 

 

 

If your emails and phone messages mentioned the problem you're having that may influence whether or not they want to get back to you.

From what I have read, there seems to be a quality issue with the resonator internal baffles.

Whats the point of long lasting SS if the internal components fail prematurely?

Call Korman Bmw in NC. Had all kind of problems with IE header and exhaust. Tore it out and trashed it. Korman Stahl headers are excellent and they source German exhaust systems from Wallothnesch. They will ask you about your build and car to give you the right diameter. Fit and finish was excellent. I downsized from 2 to 1 7/8 dia and it really woke the car up. My best

Bling?  Stainless steel is pretty. 

 

We hope for the best, in terms of longevity, but exhaust systems take a lot of abuse.

Y'all are gonna laugh, but...I had Midas put a downpipe-back system on my '73 sometime around 1987 or so...they had to replace (under warranty) the center resonator due to loose baffles a couple of years later, but the system is still on the car, and the paint hasn't even all burned off the muffler.   Only things I've had to replace are the rubber hangars and their plastic spacers.  Perhaps their current quality isn't as good as it used to be (don't know that for a fact) but I haven't been able to do a "Howdy boys, I'm here for my warranty" yet.
