I am trying to install a new muffler and tailpipe on a 1986 F-250. When I got the pipe and muffler I put a magnet on the pipe and muffler to see if it is steel or stainless. The magnet stuck and then I find out that some stainless exhaust pipe will hold a magnet. My original plan was to weld it with a mig welder and not use the clamps that came with the kit. If I do weld it I assume that I will need stainless welding wire and then how do I transition from OEM steel to new stainless pipe. Should I just clamp it and forget about welding it? Should I not worry about it and just weld it. Four pieces that came in the kit will all slip together.
Thanks in advance for the comments.
