is it worth the extra $200

looking at getting an MBRP exhaust. the only one they make for it is the 4". either the Installer Series or the XP series, except the XP costs almost an extra $200!? looks the same on their site, description is the same. Any body know the REAL difference and is it worth it?

Installer Series - Aluminuzed Steel 3 year warranty
XP Series - T409 Stainless Steel Lifetime Warranty

200 buck difference right there... The way i see it Aluminized will last just as long depending where you live and if it doesnt that 200 you saved will almost be able to buy you another exhaust down the road

live in evansville IN. completely familiar with stainless. didnt know it was called 409. my bad. but aluminum is technically resistant to rust as well as stainless. i do a good amount of off roading so i figure just go with the aluminum.
