stealth exhuast vs mbrp etc.....exhuast ?

i was looking around at rauls site at the exhuast they sell,i want to buy an exhuast from stealth -auto. can i put the mbrp muffler delete pipe on it? is the sound quality (loudness) the same? quality construction?, does the stealth come with the hangers to just bolt up like the mbrp does? thanks alot, im sure raul can help me out as always also what is the main difference between a stainless system and aluminized, my truck is going to be around saltwater all of its life, on the beach and my parents summer house is on the bay, and it sits there at work in salty air, would the stainless protect the pipe? thanks

I have the stealth exhaust 4 inch straight pipe. I love it, in my opinion if your wanting straight pipe exhaust it don't matter what brand you get. A 4 inch straight pipe exhaust is going to sound the same no matter what name is on the box. But for the cost and installation. I think the stealth exhaust system is awesome.

If I was going to do it all over again I would buy the same exhaust I have now. For sound it is not extremely loud but you can surely hear the whistle of the turbo better. It is not annoying and I love it.

By the way my kit came with the muffler even though I ordered straight pipe. But guess what Raul took care of it. One simple phone call and a couple days later my muffler delete pipe was at my house. I installed the exhaust with the muffler and when I received the delete pipe I just popped the muffler off and installed the delete pipe.

Installation was simple it does help to have a buddy to help you line up the down tube. Not one piece of the exhaust rubs any where on my truck. I have no rattles from it either. I say go for it and get the stealth exhaust.

Thats a good question. From my years of marine experiance I learned that stanless isn't always the best. Stainless won't corrod as long as the surface is in contact with an oxygeninated medium like air or water. But, if it does not have this contact for a period of time it will begin to corrode and can experiance catetrophic failure. I few years ago, like thirty, a manufacturer decided to experiment with stainless prop shafts. They worked fine but they found that if the boat sat for a while and no water or air was in contact with the shaft under the seal that when she was fired up she would snap off and fall into the water. So, now everyone uses the same steel used in rifle barrles without problems even though it will rust. Aluminized is a thin coating and can be scratched looking ugly, all aluminum is soft and subject to fatigue. Ford now uses stainless for there sd exhaust systems and they wouldn't spend the extra money if it wasn't for a good reason. I would get the stainless but be sure and wash it down after playing in the mud.

My stock exhaust was all rusted up. I went with the aluminum and I have yet to show any signs of rusting. I live in Michigan too where salt is on the roads for 7 months out of the year on average. I also go off into the dirt and I go through the woods and cross creeks when I go hunting.

Aluminum would rust it just gets brittle when worked then cracks. Good info, I had wondered about how aluminum would work.

exhaust pipe is exhaust pipe there all the same from company to company. just a different name on box is all. and of course the different are metals. the cheapest exhaust systems will sound the same as the most expensive. a guy at work at mbrp stack kit and i have grand rock stack kit andtehy both soudn the excat same. that my way of thinking about different exhaust most places your just paying for the name.

Hey buys sorry i didn't see this thread earlier.... i was busy modding all day... funny you would ask this is because me and nick (diesel Nick) just finished installing this same kit onto his truck... the sound is awesome and the install was very easy.... we got a straight pipe for it and the sound between having a muffler and not is big..... let me know if you have any questions.... if you really want to go with SS the best will be the 304 stainless MBRP

Is 304 marine grade? Marine grade would be the best. I know 318 is marine grade and I think 304 maybe food grade. Anyone know for sure?
