    Hey guys,

    Finally decided im going with the magnaflow 18" length 24" overall 2.25" in/out muffler but have one last question...

    There are 2 different types, stainless and polished, and i couldn't find a different between the 2 except for the finish.

    So heres my question: Is there any advantage of the polished over the stainless or vice versa?

    Thanks guys!!

    As long as it's stainless steel it won't rust. I'd save the money and buy the cheaper non polished one and put the extra $$ towards...say a rear swaybar.

    I'm procrastinating buying one but I hear great things about the handling after install. I'm getting tired of my truck handling like a shopping cart and the Hellwig swaybar is next on my list.

    It's not like you're gonna see it once it's installed so I'd go stainless.

    That's what i was thinking. I thought it was only the finish but didnt know if there was a quality or performance difference between the 2
