I am willing to change my entire exhaust system from OEM to 3" downpipe to cat back. But I am facing difficulties to find a good one not costing 1k.

So I was asking if there is a difference in PERFORMANCE between the regular metal and the Stainless Steel.

I know that the Stainless Steel is anti-corrosion and give better look and maybe last longer, but I want to know if this has to do anything with the BHP performance if it is Metal or Stainless Steel.

Many thanks in advance,

thanks for the reply mate, but i am doing a lot of research and no one is saying that the type of metal have anything to do in performance.

i am convinced for the look, and sound.

its just just that you pay out for it and then you dont need a new one in 1-2years or how ever long a normal one lasts ...... mine feels os nice to drive now ....

i made it cheap by buying a 2.5" catback system to start with then brought a 3" down pipe and decat from ebay and it fitted great and had no problems at all with it lol worked out well under 1K lol and its a full stainless turbo back zort!
