exhaust

Hey guys. Is it worth the money to go with stainless turbo back or just aluminized? I'm going with MBRP and I was told it was only about $150 more. All my buddies say it's not worth it. My whole set up will be Gauges, AFE stage 2, Turbo wheel, DP tuner, and the exhaust. Thanks

I have an aluminized now and trying to find a deal on a stainless. It's only been on the truck 2 years and only been to the beach once.

If you are in Michigan - anywhere with road salt I would get stainless steel.

i agree if you see road salt i would go stainless... 409 will still get surface rust but wont rust through 304 will stay shiny but is more expensive...

I bought my MBRP aluminized system last year and this is the second Minnesota winter on it and it has zero rust, around here sometimes I wonder if there is more salt on the roads than snow! I wish I would have bought a stainless though, wasnt thinkin when i bought it. I wash my truck usually 1-2 times a week and spray the underneath off as well, that probably helps.
