dynomax race mufflers are what I like. dont know if they meet "cheap" criteria though at $45ish.

The price is great but can I weld stainless together with mild steel using my 90 amp HF welder?

Be sure to check out performancepeddler.com for resonator pricing. They are pretty cheap if you all them up and make them 'an offer'.

No gas, just the 90 amp 110 welder that was discussed recently.
