dc makes both

ceramic runs cooler. so for performance its the better choice.

stainless steel looks better imo and is more durable. if your car is lowered or if you drive in snow during the winter get stainles or stay stock the ceramic isn't as durable.

You will be fine no matter what you buy. If you want the DC get the ceramic. If you're building a show car and get the DC get the stainless. Ceramic will run cooler and scavenge better as it retains it's heat inside the pipes more. I have the DC and I don't feel it was worth the money. If I had to do it all over again, I would have waited for HP to solve their mounting problems and gone that way with the hiflow and O2 simulator. It does provide better HP on the top end, which is where I need it. If you can stand to wait, I would wait all together. Nothing out right now does much and/or fits right (one or the other), but someday, maybe, some company (Toda?) will get something out for us that actually is worth the HP/$.

hp first off is very bootleg design and manfactuining. They dont even fit right, and it mess's with the computers. If you want it done right the first time, and have 50 state leagal with carb approve, then get DC.

You wont bottom out with DC. Get it, I live in the northeast and I have no problems with them.
