I personally have used both several times and now I just go straight for the Aluminized. The SS is not marine grade stainless and it will rust. My last kit that was stainless had so much surface rust on it that i replaced it after less than a year of use.

Alumized stays looking nice.

I beleive that the benifit of the stainless steal is mostly just for the guys that live in area's that still use corrosive chemicals such as salt on the roads. Ive got the aluminum (on a 6.0) and it has yet to show any issue's.

Just so everyone is clear, the exhaust systems are not "Aluminum" They are "Aluminized Steel" its still a steel pipe with a special coating basically.
