Default How much of my exhaust is stainless steel?

I was reading older posts re stainless steel exhausts. Am I correct in assuming that my '97 SSEi has 2.5" stainless steel pipes? Is the catalytic converter SS too? What about the muffler? My exhaust system is all stock.

All piping is mandrel bent stainless steel. I don't think the Cat is, but you'll get surface rust on everything no mattery what.

The cat and muffler will rust out. The exhaust piping might, but only in the most extreme circumstances.
