Do they use some kind of stainless alloy that contains some iron with stainless exhaust systems?
The reason I ask is I have always used the magnet test to verify if something is stainless (stainless=non-magnetic). I just bought some Flowmaster 50's and was told they are now made of stainless. Well, they are magnetic. Also, my 2000 truck supposedly came with a stainless exhaust system and it is magnetic as well. ???
Are they just using some kind of alloy with iron?

P.S. I can't find any info on the material on Flowmasters website. ::)

its a cheap grade of SS / not like kitchen grade like a REST / the 50,s are a better grade than the stock stuff / to check what l,m say,in you would need a body shop magnet / it works like a tire depth gauge / depending on how far it pulls out is how thick the bondo is / or how good the SS is
