I see a whole lot more V8s than V10s. However, I do see almost every freakin car with a damned exhaust on it. While I like the whole mean sounding part, some cars are just annoying with an exhaust on them. It's usually an integra or old civic with a 5 inch muffler tip on it or something ridiculous like that.
So I'v been driving around a couple days with the resonator disconnected and found that my shift points have actually changed. Normally if I was driving around 45mph on level ground and let up off the gas a tad the car would shift into 5th and turn over at ~1500rpm. Now it just stays in 4th until I let up off the gas totally at least until i get up to around 50mph. Maybe it's just me. I plan to replace the tubing and see if I find anything different. Although I'll probably have to reset the ECU, which techinically I should have done in the first place when I removed the tubing. Hindsight = 20/20.
