I did not record any difference in mileage though. Following the Eisenmann installation, the addition of a set of 313 wheels, H & R Sway Bars and Springs, I had a friend up at the Ring tune both the engine and suspension and he was able to get 285HP out of the motor with no loss in mileage as opposed to about 270 out of the cars with the stock system. I do not find the drone objectionable but i think my morning and evening commute is a bit faster than yours [long stretch on the way to work with no speed limit], and I do bi-weekly trips up to the Ring [2 hours] and am not bothered.
Thanks Chuck, but you didn't state if you have sport or race exhaust, and you garage only says you have the quad tips.
