Re: flowmasters

They can still rust, but will do so from the inside out. The aluminized steel is more resistant to rust, but is not rust proof.

Re: flowmasters

Most standard exhaust tubing and mufflers these days are aluminized. If your muffler is down low, and possibly subject to getting tore off on a trail, this is probably the wise way to go, seeing as stainless is often times twice the price.

But, if you are going to keep the vehicle for a time, and can tuck the muffler up out of harms way, the stainless is a good investment.

Re: flowmasters

Mine rusted, but I think it was mainly mud that was the cultprit and it was just a little rust, no biggie.

Re: flowmasters

I put a flowmaster cat-back system on mine little over 2.5 years ago, the pipes are doing fine but the muffler is cracking at every baffle weld [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
