Pretty much. I think SS is cheaper too.
and some people like to weld up there own cold side and SS is easier to weld.

Just bc its ss doesnt mean it will be "polished" like you are probably thinking. look up on3 performance gives you a idea..best to go alum.

aluminum is cheaper, lighter and dissapates heat faster than stainless steel. Id go aluminum.
