What is aluminized steel piping? Is that stainless steel? If not will it rust? I am thinking about getting the HKS Hi-Power exhaust and thats what the piping is made of. I dont want to buy an exhaust that has a chance of rusting in a year.

Hmmm... not sure at all. I wonder if it's sometype of coating so they could add a layer of anodization to make it more rust proof? :confused

let me consult w/ Mr. Google... ;)

Aluminized Steel: Sheet steel with a thin aluminum coating on the surface to enhance the steel’s ability to withstand weathering.

Seems that hot dipping is the technique used to do it and it's very common from companies as diverse a roofing, sewers/culverts, to exhaut systems.

BTW: Check w/ HKS on their warranty. I bet they have a good one and will stand behind their products. ;)
