Default Pocket friendly exhaust?

I'm currently working with a regular 1 in/1 out side exhaust and wanted to upgrade to a 1 in/2 out rear. I really dont have money these days because im in school working part time and paying almost 900 a month for my insurance and new car note. I found a set of flowmasters for $310 but they are aluminized steel. My question is...does any1 know how good/bad the aluminized is compared to stainless steel? Like i said i dont have the cash nor do i wanna put alot of money into my ram because its mainly for the winter but will be using it as my daily driver while driving 200 miles a week to school. I just want an aggressive sound and the look of the dual tips. Also if anyone knows where i can get an exhaust for a good price, plz do tell. Thanks in advance...

honestly if you want the sound just throw a thrush muffler on i did it to my 4.7 dakota and it sounded better than all of my friends w/ catbacks (minus my friend w/ a hemi) it cost around 60 buck for the muffler clamps and some flexpipe. I plan on doing the same w/ my RAM then custom creating a dual side dump out.

Yea I got a magnaflow for my 5.9 dakota it was single in dual out and it was maybe 210 or something like that i cant remember exactly but it wasnt 300. But is that 310 including your piping for the other side of the exhaust including hangers and such. If not remember to get the pipe bent and crap it may cost another 100-150 to create a dual out system
