I have M&M's on my GenIII ...  The quality is very good and they work well, fairly easy to install.  I have an installation how-to in the how-to's here, and it has a clear picture of how they look.  I'll assume that the GenII versions are just as good and similar in construction.  They're made from mild steel instead of stainless which gives them a somewhat deeper tone.  All the flanges are thick and straight, don't leak.

  What about corrosion? I assume you got yours coated with something? I don't want ones that will rust in a few years.

M&M's come with a coating but I had them shipped to JetHot not coated and had the JetHot extreme coating put on.  JetHot won't corrode.  Not to say that what M&M does is bad, it was personal preference.

Can I assume they are less expensive than other brands because they are not stainless?

Yes, and less than Bellanger's which are also mild steel.

So who makes the stainless ones? American Racing?

I looked at your thread and looking at your car almost makes me wish I bought the 2006 :'(
Is the 2006 the same color as the 96?

Headers look great by the way!

Yep, ARH and Kooks I think are stainless.  Keep in mind the coating does more than just keeping the corrosion down, if properly done with the correct materials it actually holds the heat inside the pipes which makes more power and helps on everything else in the engine compartment.

I coat stainless ones as well.  The long tubes on the Challenger are ARH stainless, and the long tubes on the truck are MOPAR Performance stainless and JetHot coated.  Still look like new.

Not sure, but it is Viper Blue so probably close.

So, It would be more cost effective and better performance to just buy the M&M's and get them coated?

What does coating cost?
