Question Another exhaust kit question

Is there any performance differences in a $260.00 exhaust kit made by company "A" and their $650.00 kit? Or does it boil down to the life of the kit?

Well they are normally all the same. It is the materials they are made of that make the difference on how long they last. And some company's make them better, for easier install.

It usually comes down to quality of material, and whether or not it has been mandrel bent or not. For the most part, piping is piping.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

If by company 'A' you mean Diamond Eye, I say go for it. Have had my 4" aluminum on my truck since 2008 and I love it. Not sure if there's another kit that sells for that cheap.

Generally they are made from different materials. Most sell aluminized steel ones, which are cheap and wont last. Then most offer different qualities of stainless steel. The more you spend the longer it will last for the most part.

thats like asking what oil everyone uses....

I've been happy with my mbrp stainless

(btw, aluminized steel is the cheapest out there, its just steel with an aluminized coating, get something better than that if you live in a place that uses salt in the winter)

I got my stainless Magnaflow for under $300, 4", turbo back. Couldn't be happier.
