Re: Straight Pipe MPG?
So I started stock and that was a no-go due to the OEM muffler is a huge restriction, bad for EGT
. Then I went 4" with straight through muffler. That was not too loud but the in cab drone was unpleasant, especially when towing, and especially when cold. Drone is no good. I added a resonator from ITE and now it is as quiet as stock but without the EGT
and pluggage issues of the stock muffler.
I'm not a kid anymore either so loud and drone is not the right way to go. I could do loud but that drone. So lame.
