We've had to look at changing our sound deadening material due to a few failures caused by extreme heat.
I've toyed with the idea of aluminum tailpipes. Leave the muffler 321 stainless and make the 180 bend and tailpipe out of aluminum. I guess it comes down to how important that last 5 pounds of weight loss is to the customer. Darin's muffler in 321, which is the same as mine, would weigh 12 pounds.
