So I just left the dealership and it went pretty good I would say. I tool the service manager for a ride and duplicated the sound. He said it definitely isn't a normal click ad that he highly doubts its the muffler causing the issue. We arranged an appointment for next week and he said their gunna take care of it... Fingers crossed...

This is one of the reasons I haven't messed with my y pipe. My exhaust shop said he wouldn't do it because he's done it in the past and had guys come back pissed at him because their dealer voided their warranty. I know other will argue this, I'm just saying this is what I was told.

considering you're going thru a quart of oil a week, I think they are going to find something ugly inside the engine.

I think the factory y-pipe is like it is because of the MDS system. Think about it, when the engine goes into 4 cyl mode, it becomes a 172.5c.i. engine. You need the smaller I.D. squished pipes to match the lessened exhaust flow to keep exhaust velocity up. This is done strictly for MPG with the MDS.
Now if you've turned off the MDS with a tuner, whole different ballgame. Now you need engine to breath better. Headers into hi-flo cats, into hi-flo performance exhaust, but it still needs to be sized right for the RPM/HP/torque range engine will operate in. It all has to match or it will not run as it should.

Great point HP.....and setting everything up performance perfect is riding a fine line....Cliff thought he had done this, and look what he's going through. I believe it depends on the motor that comes with your vehicle...some are assembled better (a Wednesday or Thursday build), which will accept a tune and bolt ons easier....then you have the Monday/Friday build...a complete dog, and no matter what you do, it runs poor. I guess it's a chance you take for performance....if I want a rocket, I'll get a Challenger or 5.0 Stang. Just my 2 cents...Happy Father's Day to everyone!
