Muffler delete mpg + or -?

Yep! the title pretty much says it. I haven't see any threads specifying the gas mileage benefits of muffler deletes (doubt there is). I just recently got muffler deletes and I've noticed a slight decrease from 65 to 70mph. I run my car only on supreme and I grandma my car most of the time. Has anyone noticed any changes on the LS3? Thx!

i think you lose a little MPG, because loss of back pressure

back pressure is in the cats and res mufflers do nothing more than dampen sound

if you look on here you'll find a cut a way of a muffler and it is just a strait pipe with a hole in it

heres thread www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=57512

i didnt notice any loss in mpg other than constant reving to hear awsome

you get god MPG when you have good low end power.. i have heard multiple time on allot of forums, they feel a little loss in low end TQ, but gain high end.. my friend with a 5.0L mustang did a muffler delete and he is always talking about his MPG loss

do some research on it , or get some professional advice
good luck

it's because you get on it more to hear the better sound. I know you think you don't but trust me it happens to all of us.

I have a couple friends that did muffler delete on their cars and both complain about loss of mpg. I have also heard its due to the loss of back pressure.

I did the deletes and i have a bit better MPg. About 1 or 2 Mpg. u deff lose mpg's when u do the deletes because of all constant reving.

i also lost a minimal low end torque but gained a minimal high end torque along with rpm movement.

you have a point but I think the sound actually helps me save gas. I dont drive a camaro so I dont have any numbers to compare but I did swap out the mufflers on my lexus... need I say more
Anyhow, apart from the occasional 0-65 test on the on ramps I grandma it around town. I have found that the louder exhaust note makes me much more conscious of what RPM I am at and how hard (or easy) I am pushing the engine, making it easier to save some $$$ on gas
IMO

Did anyone buy their Camaro for the gas mileage? I did not.

I think you should just not post anything tech related, ever. For the record these cars don't have two stroke carbed weed wacker engines.

Overly-open exhausts can cause a loss of exhaust velocity which will hamper the vacuum scavenging effect of the exhaust pulses pulling/emptying spent cylinders, but you'd need something absurdly large like 4" true duals with 2.5" tube headers to even come remotely close to hampering yourself, and it is NEVER going to occur as far back as the mufflers.

Backpressure? ALWAYS a bad thing, because it is nothing but a flow (hp) restriction.
