Straight pipe MPG comparisons

I got an SCT today, and have it straightpiped, mostly looking out of the sct is increase mpg and towing capabilities. Will I get better gas mileage straightpiped with the sct tunes, or get better mileage with stock exhaust with sct tunes. Ive gotten mixed input on this...

Straight pipe might get you better mileage. It certainly won't be worse. I don't think you'll notice much of a difference either way. The SCT should give you a nice little bump in mileage though... if you can keep your foot out of it.

+1.. My mileage went down a bit with the straight pipe but it's only because I drive it a lot harder now. The sound difference just makes you want to push it some!

Straight pipe wont make a difference but the SCT will. I would get an exhaust thought to help with EGTs
