I was thinking this morning on the way to work. Try disconnecting your battery for a good 30 minutes.

Then reconnect it. At that point, drive around taking it easy on everywhere you go. The ECU will learn a new "driving style" of yours. It might help.

Also, being that your speedometer is now off due to a larger tire size, it will also make it look like you haven't driven as far, as it would with stock tire size. Thus it will make it seem like you are getting worse MPG.

Take a chill pill there. Don't let words on a screen upset you. I kinda agree with him though.

Anyway did you see the post above? You claim true duals. Is this what you have? True duals means each bank has a separate exhaust that never merges at any point. If you bought a Chokemaster kit then they are not true duals.

True duals:

Easy starting point: What are ALL of the differences between your truck and your buddy's?

And relax, man. Fuel economy questions come up all the time, but the reality is that you're driving a truck, not a car, and your calculations are going to be very off if you're going by your odometer since you swapped tire sizes.

The intake doesn't matter since all they really do is make noise.

You didn't mention that it works at high RPM but does nothing for normal street driving or MPG. More than likely he is adding one to gain some MPGs.
