Stainless I believe, their mild steel products were painted, black.

+ Its looking way better than anything else under anything else under the car.

Try the magnet test. Put a magnet on the exhaust. If it isn't magnetic, it is 304 SS (which is what you want). If it is magnetic, it is a cheaper stainless steel or mild steel.

definitely stainless. Their mild steel exhaust only had a stainless tip. As was mentioned, the rest was painted black...
