      First upgrade of many - Upgraded Exhaust

      Just bought the Summit Racing Exhaust! Personally, I'm loving the deep sound of it, and have noticed an increase of about 7 mpg. What do you guys think?

      glad you like it. what motor do you have? the pipes look like their sticking way far out. maybe its the angle. now as someone who has done extensive exhaust work to every car ive ever owned (except the dart as of yet) i dont believe the 7mpg increase is accurate. i would imagine it will settle down to a maybe 2-3 at best i would thing. if it does stay at 7mpg im buying it lol that exhaust will pay for itself.

      I have the 2.0l tigershark, and it does seem to be sticking out a little far. The only thing i dont like is the sound on the highway, its just slightly loud for my taste. My average mpg before getting the exhaust was about 30.2, and now I'm getting 37.4 as my average. Although, I haven't driven on my usual route yet. I'll let you know what it settles at, since I have only driven on flat roads so far.

      thats why ive been hesitant to mess with my exhaust. ive had many loud cars and somedays you just dont want to hear your car screaming at you all the way home. i like having a quiet daily driver....well most of the time anyway.

      It helps to be in 6th gear, but even then there is still that drone you'll get no matter what.
