stainless, i think you live in the snow belt.

Snow doesn't matter, salt does.

i live in cleveland...they love salt around here. i had aluminzed, and it lasted 2 summers and 2 winters before it went bad. i wish i would have spent the money in the beginning on stainless....this time i did tho!! i would recommend it, it may be more money now, but in the long run it will save you money!!

Whatever exhaust you get try to get stainless steel hangers. I have an aluminized exhaust that is holding up well to the NE winters after two of them but the hangers are rusting out.
