I believe the Gen 2 has some sort of coating on it to resist the rusting problem Gen 1 had. Not sure if it's visible or not. I know the pics I've seen of it have shown a blue color to the metal, so I'm not sure if that's the actual coating, or what the exhaust has always looked like.

It's on the muffler and piping, but the canister and tip are polished.

Here's a pic of the HKS (bottom left):

Oh yeah, and about lift, your lift bolts are most likely broken. PITA to replace, but there's a TSB out for it, so it's a known problem, and is definitely covered under warranty. I've attached the TSB to the top of this post.
