One of the vendors on here recently informed me when I was looking into these that the Stromung products are now made of stainless steel. You might want to confirmed.

YMMV but mild will have more of a tendency to rust.

Mild steel doesnt last nearly as long as stainless would.

my MS stromung lasted about 3 years before it rotted out, and that was on the snow salty east coast.

Dryer climates like CA might last a bit longer.

why do they make mild steel...cause its cheaper.

Yeah, MS exhausts will rot out from the inside quite quickly. I know my Ansa did. Live and learn.

Mild is cheap and prone to oxidize
Stainless is expensive and won't oxidize.
