Default stainless risers are alum.???

hey guys, do you think it's worth another 3-400 dollars more for stainless risers over aluminum?? I can buy manifolds with alum. risers for around 950 to 1000 an engine, I can also buy manifolds with stainless risers[short for cap call] for around 1400 an engine, so what would you do??? thanks for any info here, engines are 454mag mpi's

buy the stainless.

is saving $400 worth puking an engine over? If it leaks it will piss water back into your engine and will eventually kill it. Granted they all eventually leak but the aluminum will start to leak faster ESPECIALLY in salt water.
