well i would never either even if i was only getting 18mpg, the 3800 can take the abuse better, and my large self wont fit very well in the small cars, but some people like them, some will get twice the mileage as a h or w body does in city only driving

Thanks guys. I didn't take it out on the salted roads, but stuck to back roads that are dirt. Doesn't keep it clean, but the county doesn't salt these roads.

Yeah, I already did. =)

Running two Magnaflow series 1225 mufflers on it. Which are a glasspack type muffler with a straight thought design. It has a good sound to it and doesn't drone that much or none at all on the freeway.

I'd ask for a video, but I know videos do no justice with sound. So, bring it over to my house. We'll have a few cases of beer and polish stuff.
