Have a slight feeling he just would rather take the easier path especially after the comments about the bends he needs to make.
He figured it would cost me $130-140 to have it done with the steel.

I plan on checking a couple more places tomorrow.
I have the aluminized on mine. Sure when you mix metal there is the corrosion issue. But the fact of the matter is that the jerry cans removed were not stainless steel. And furthermore, my car wont see rain and other corrosives that could accelerate the issue. I feel very confident that this set of straight pipes should last for at least 10 years and more than likely more. Stainless is better without a question but you could do it twice with aluminized. Sound would be the same. And allignment might be better cause it is so much easier to bend.
