Question for you. If I am buying a PSE from someone that had it installed on thier car,as a factory option is there anything I need to look for in terms of being broken or not working properly. Secondly, is there any special procedure for taking the PSE off of the first car? Thirdly, is it possible to remove the PSE with its valves closed and install it with its valves closed, or do the valves open up every time the car is shut off? I would appreciate any help you can offer, thanks!

Well if you are removing all of the PSE components that's quite a job. The wiring goes from the engine compartment to the relay panel near the drivers left foot. And then there is all the vacuum stuff in the engine compartment.

If you are just getting the mufflers then that is easy. The valves on the mufflers are normally in the open position (loud). To close the valves you use a vacuum connection from the engine (that is controlled by an electronic solenoid).

What type of install are you planning? Just mufflers or the whole thing?

Regarding external damage, I would carefully inspect the mounting flanges and threading of the 3 bolts. Also check to see that the vacuum actuators work and without any binding just in case you decide to do the complete install later.

It turned out my passenger side muffler was damaged during shipping. After several attempts to line up the three bolts of the muffler mounting bracket to the engine mounting bracket, I realized that the flange was bend; this prevented me from matching up the bolts. I also notice that one of the bolts was bent too.

I corrected these problems by rebending the flange and I used my old mounting plate from my stock muffler.
