Why use Titanium instead of Stainless Steel?

Titanium vs Stainless Steel - Weight

STRONGER. LIGHTER. FASTER. There is a huge difference in weight. Titanium exhaust systems are approximately 40% lighter in weight than stainless steel due to the fact that Titanium is much stronger and requires less thickness in the material for comparable strength. This weight savings when the ENTIRE exhaust is made up of titanium can add up to a good bit of weight. This is why you'll see race cars with titanium when every bit of weight counts. For driving enthusiasts, it means improving performance, and they'll also experience some fuel savings into the bargain. Dropping weight, after all, is one of the key things that you can do to improve a vehicle's acceleration, cruising speed, and handling. Taking the whole exhaust system into account, you're going to make substantial weight savings over even a stainless steel alternative.

 

Titanium vs Stainless Steel - Style

Titanium is beautiful. There's no denying that. But it comes with a hefty price increase over your typical stainless system. Stainless isn't ugly by any means, but you'll notice an incredible range of colour from bronze/gold to blue and purple in titanium depending on the quality of construction and welding. Not to mention, there's a distinct tone difference. The thinner walls needed in titanium exhaust make for a very aggressive, raspy and metallic exhaust note.

 

Titanium vs Stainless Steel - Heat

Titanium can dissipate heat much faster than steel. This is why motorcyclists are particularly fond of titanium exhaust systems; they'll often find that the pipe cools down almost instantly, reducing the likelihood of a passenger burning their leg when they slip down after each ride. Of course, superior heat dissipation also means that titanium can withstand heat without experiencing any negative effects.

 

Titanium vs Stainless Steel - Price

There is a big price difference between the two materials. For 2.5" O.D. 304 Stainless Steel Straight Tubing - 5 foot length, it is $117.89. For 2.5" O.D. Titanium Straight Tube, 1 Meter Long, it is $172.89. There's really no getting around the fact that titanium exhausts are far more expensive than even stainless steel systems. However, you do get what you pay for; if you're the sort of person who wants to enjoy truly superior performance, anything less than a Titanium exhaust system will feel like a compromise.
