Yes, you are wrong. http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/grin.gif A 4" exhaust will lower your EGT's though.



WHY DO I KEEP THINKING THIS?



Your brain is not used to working, so it is confused and overworked. http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/tongue.gif

SO ARE YOU SAYING MY MILEAGE SHOULD INCREASE OR STAY THE SAME?

Well ultimately it depends on your right foot. But if you keep your EGT's down, your mileage increases. High EGT's, your mileage decreases. So by adding a 4" exhaust, your are increasing exhaust flow and reducing your EGT's. It will also help if you increase the intake flow. The one problem is that you will have this increase of power and your right foot will like it toooooo much and there goes your mileage again. http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/grin.gif

Just ask Gene he is the KING of saying it will help his mialage IF he could keep his Foot out of it. http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/rofl.gif http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/grin.gif
Increasing your intake and exhaust flow will and does increase your mialage.(and throttle response)

Yes you are wrong as usual http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/smile.gif
I changed my exhaust and downpipe to a 4" and I did see an increase in fuel mileage ( I was carefull with my right foot for a whole full fuel tank to check it)

IF I RECALL CORRECTLY, BUT THEN AGAIN IT COULD BE THE FACT THAT I COULDNT KEEP MY FOOT OUT OF IT BUT ANYWAY...I REMEMBER WAY BACK IN THE DAY WHEN I PUT HEADERS ON A GAS V8 IT WOULD HURT THE BOTTOM END THEREFORE YOU HAD TO STEP ON THE PEDAL MORE TO GET THE CAR MOVING. THEN I NEEDED A BIGGER CAM TO COMPENSATE....THAT IS WHAT IM AFRAID OF....DOES ANYONE UNDERSTAND WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY HERE....I KNOW THINGS WILL FLOW BETTER BUT IM THINKING DOWN THE LINE.

Now as far getting a 4" exhaust system Rob go for it you wont be sorry, but remember you would need to get a better intake too to get the most out of it.

I think you are wrong. With less back pressure, it should allow the motor to breath a little better, there for not requiring as much effort to turn the wheels.

I've had a couple drinks tonight, so maybe I'm not making sense! http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/smile.gif
