Default got question need help

I have a 2008 and I have noticed when I am driving between 55 and 60 it acts kinda weird the rpms will be running just above 1500 then randomly will jump up to 2000 at first I thought it was just the cruise but then found out it does it without the cruise to not sure if its the mds or something I need to get looked at I just know it sounds bad with my exhaust. Thanks in advance BTW it has a 5.7 in it

Well first, welcome to the forum since I see you're new here! What exhaust are you running? Some systems do sound bad when MDS kicks in, but if you get a programmer like the Diablosport Predator, you can disable MDS. I'm sure you'll get plenty of advice from others on here with more experience than me though, but good luck, and in the meantime, you should stop by the Newbie Checkin and introduce yourself to everyone!

That would be the overdrive kicking in and out.
