I woke my 96 V10 up with two new cats, into a single Magnaflow Muffler exiting thru a 4" tail pipe and a K&N intake...It sounds great, really tows my 22' boat like nothing, and will pass anything on the road but a gas station. The only way to get more than about 11 miles to the gallon would be to coast down hill ALOT!!!
