    I'm curious what impact was on gas mileage when you changed your exhaust system. Realizing that for a while, you just couldn't keep your foot off the gas pedal for a few days, okay, for a few weeks! :D

    You wont really see a difference on the mpg with only an exhaust. To really make a noticable difference you need to spend a little coin. After adding exhausts and intakes thats great but sometimes thats not enough, getting and maf calibrataor and getting that tuned not only will there be a difference in mpg but you will also be getting more power because your truck will be properly tuned for the aftermarket parts you have. Everything will work in unison!
