Re: Stainless Steel Grades.
In terms of Exhaust
Commercial Grade (Rusts extremley quickly)
ACMS (Aluminium Coated Mild Steel) (Most manufacturers use this mostly)
409= Not so good but still alot better than ACMS
Most people use 409 if they are buildeng an stainless exhaust (still does the job well)
Here are some prices on a 3mt length of 3in straight exhaust tube for you to compare against
You can quite clearly see the diffrences, and bending it depends on your dies and wall thickness finish etc although you wouldent want to bend 3in on a press bender
Have you driven a Ford....lateley?
Advertising has come along way-----But still not far enough!!!!!
