Exhaust Muffler and Midpipe Discoloration

Have you guys noticed that even when you have the air/fuel ratio correct with these Weber motors that it still runs hot enough to discolor the stainless steel mid pipe and muffler?

I would swear that hard running with these engines is just hotter than typical engine exhaust?????

Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.......who's bringing the chips?

Yah, my Gibson exhaust went from nice shiny stainless to a slightly shiny brown color (the muffler and mid pipe!)

That seems to be normal with stainless.
I would think especially because these are so short & wind blocked.
My motorcycle exhaust does the same thing. Just not all the way to the muffler.
