Stainless is the same weight as steel but because of the minimum 10% chromium that is required to make it stainless (aside from a few exceptions) and any other possible alloying elements it has a very good corrosion resistance.

For anyone thinking of doing their own work on it I recommend getting a qualified welder that knows stainless to do that part, if its done wrong or gets too hot while welding it loses the corrosion resistance and will just rust like any other exhaust at the weld area.
