Exhaust

Considering the MBRP turbo back for the 04 F250. While I'm sure the stainless steel is far superior, my cheap *** will probably end up with the aluminuzed steel. Anyone running this system? Just wondering how many Pennsylvania winters it's gonna survive before it's a rusted hunk of metal!

My MBRP 409 S/S has been thru two maine winters and it has surface rust all over the system except for the muffler which I think is 304 S/S. If you have the money then spend it on S/S but if you want to keep your exhaust options open, change to stacks down the road, then go with the Aluminized steel

I can make you a killer deal on the exhaust when you are ready... and there are a few companies you can run with... and some that will survive the salt a little better... but none the less, the MBRP stainless is a great route to go... PM me or call me at 775-722-8645 if you want some more info

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

i would just go with the AL kit... it will build surface rust but will take a long time for it to completely rust all the way through...

rauls right, i ran mine this winter with no major rust. any exhaust will rust even within a week, might just be a little spot, but even the aluminum will take a while to rust clean through. imo i would go with the aluminum.
