hey buddy twister as far as fuel consumption is concerned yes there will be a marginal drop by replacing the stock exhaust with a performance one and yes also a header with the entire free flow setup will lead to a drop in FE...so that's for you to decide...i mean you have to lose something to gain something..in this case you have to give up on FE for performace...hehe...cheers...!!

hey dragger agreed that you have to give up one thing for another thing. in this case fuel eff for performance but approximatley what will the fuel eff drop by in a regular case say for example in a lancer with just a free flow and a K&N filter giving ( 10 kmpl when stock) what will the new fuel efficieny be ??

hey buddy revtech i cant give you a perfect figure because it all depends on how your filter and your headers are positioned and installed...well also the tuning plays a vital role...well at an average together the drop should round up giving you a fuel efficiency of about 8.75 or 9...at its very best...cheers...!!

Default You better get your facts right before getting a head job

I am a member of the http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/...India/messages

yahoo and chanced upon your query when surfing through the net and I thought I would pitch in with a bit of advice. When tuning your engine for more torque you should make sure that the car will be drivable at low and mid range rpms. Please read the complete article on this link before contemplating changing your header and exhaust system as a whole. Might as well study the article so that you could get some intelligent answers from the automech engineers you have been adviced to visit. Bye and wear your seatbelts and hope I was of some help.

the mid-range improves a lot and the sound goes look hey get aside or i will stamp on u.Fuel efficiency is reportedly increasing .But proper installation is what is the most important feature here. Wrong installation will make you pay for your engine damage badly.
