Question Staight pipe VS. AERO turbine muffler

Okay here is a wierd one....when i have my aero turbine muffler installed on my truck i get about 500 miles to a fill up. Now when i run the straight pipe, i might get 400. Whats the difference, and why does the turbo seem to spool up faster with the muffler installed.

Well........Aeroturbine claims to lower EGT's and increase horsepower, torque and fuel mileage but I ain't buying that story. And I have a hard time believing you saw a 20% increase in fuel mileage.

I am runnin the straight pipe for this fill up and driving the same way as I did with the muffler and i will get back with a post about it. But i also lost about 5 psi of boost at full throttle, when it hits red and my egts are up around 1100 im at 30 psi, with the muffler im at 35 psi.

if it were me I know that I'd lay into the throttle a little more when accelerating with the straight pipe. I did that a lot with my old trucks that were setup that way cause it just sounded so good! This one I start to do that, but I don't hear anything, so then I just let off the throttle... may have to change that soon...

Well yall the readins are in i lost 90 miles to my fill up. The staight pipe is definately coming back out. The sound is nice and all but it sure hurts my pockets, especially it being here in Italy. The aero turbine is a definate gain to my 20 miles per gallon 97 f350 dually.

Isn't it illegal to run a straight pipe?

I have the afe stage 2, grand rock stacks, 3 in downpipe, of course the 4 in 4040 xl aero turbine muffler, dominator 66 turbo, gale banks intercooler, diprical gauges and stage 2 baby swamp injectors. Edge programmer does the rest, now as far as straight pipes bein illegal, it all depends on if they have emissions laws or noise ordinance laws. Otherwise if you want to run a straight go for it. I RECOMEND THE AERO TURBINE HANDS DOWNS

Now did i mention that i havent gutted the ebv but the kitty is gone. The aero turbine gives it a deeper tone and you still get the whistle but its much quiter than the straight pipe ill work on gettin a few videos for yall. But yeah over here in italy at sea level i get 19 to 20 mpg with my stage twos. thier diesel is much better than ours, they filter it down to what we have to put extra filters on to get to.
