Yup, the stock tubing is stainless. The problem is the mufflers. You can
have the center muffler removed and a straight pipe welded in. Works fine.
For the rear you can have a substitute put in. Borla makes some nice SS
mufflers. I have also seen a TQC with the rear muffler replaced with a
straight pipe and the center muffler intact. Kinda weird. On my TQC, I have
a complete cat back Borla stainless exhaust system and they only use the
rear muffler. And my box of honeycombs is empty...
