WARNING TO V6 owners!!!

This is a precautionary warning to anyone that is upgrading your car to an aftermarket exhaust.
Your gas mileage WILL SUFFER!!! It has nothing to do with the functioning of the exhaust itself, but it will sound so good when going through the gears you will run it up to the redline at every opportunity to hear that exhaust sing...
This has been a public service announcement...thank you..

The only time I used to use my paddle shifters was when going down long mountain grades. Now I seem to use them ALL the time, and tend to leave it in a lower gear much longer than necessary, just because of the Grin factor.... Maybe I will eventually go back to driving normally...(maybe when the wife is with me)

Same thing with me since I installed Solo Performance Mack X LLT with J-Pipes and my paddle shifters. I rev the engine a little more and compressing quite a lot also. Saves on brakes, but not on fuel. I always drive on M mode.

Love hearing the exhaust, it's almost impossible not to get on the pedal and let it rip.

Just get her some earplugs no need to sacrifice the permagrin.

She says she likes the way it sounds too but she thinks I am hot rodding when I use the paddle shifters.
