Frpp TOURING case material

The photos on various sellers websites make the FRPP Touring case look much darker than the FRPP Sports; is it the same material? What material is it? The descriptions say the Tubing is SS but doesn't mention the case (for both the Sports and Touring). The reason I'm curious is I'm going to drill a weep hole and want to know if it's SS, aluminized, or just painted. Have pretty much decided on Touring, either Borla or FRPP, because I don't want too much volume. I understand Borla's case is SS but FRPP doesn't specify.

Also, who do I PM at AM to get the forum discount code?

Thanks.

Just an FYI: Borla makes FRPP, but Borla has the better warranty. I think they're both very similar in price. I would probably go with the Borlas for the warranty. Go to Borla's website and you can find more information there. Their video is also very good. Hope that helps.

It's my understanding via reading tons of threads, that Borla's are "straight through" while FRPP are chambered, with FRPP being a little quieter and deeper. Quieter and deeper is what I'd prefer, but would probably go with Borla if the case material is better.

I have the Borla Touring axle-back and am really happy with the system, both in regards to sound and fit/finish.

You can PM AMDanBailer here, and he can shoot you the forum discount code.

The Borla Touring are the same muffler as the FRPP Touring from my understanding, and the Borla is Stainless Steel.
Here are mine with BBK Short Tube headers and the FRPP Cut and Clamp X-Pipe

I have the FRPP Tourings, I was told by a FRPP guy they are made by Borla but different design than the Borla Tourings....either way they are great quality, quiet/deep at low rpm's, nice growl over 3000 rpm's, only disadvantage is FRPP only 1 year warranty.

I am so happy to see that folks are using much deeper quiet exhaust like touring. I love that setup. Not yet there. So far I have shorty headers not installed. But it would be with OEM exhaust setup.

If the shorty will be too silent I will add FRPP Touring. Straight through Borla is not to my taste.

Thank you for uploading a bunch of videos of that setup!
Sounds great!

Upgrade to interior only so far.

After over a year of internal debate, I ordered the FRPP Touring today from AM, and will post my opinion after they're installed. Thanks all.

If you do plan on adding weep holes make sure to use a carbon tipped bit.

If you used hardened steel you could end up leaving steel deposits which can cause a location for rust to form.
