    • *reads " i drill a hole in my exhaust..."*

      *checks the designation... laughs for a moment*

      dude like really? drilling doesnt make a straight pipe! that too before the cats to start all sorts of problems!  😂 
      i have thought about that myself long time ago but after the resonators.. then i did a research only to find out that i was stupid enough to think about it... if you want some sound get a catback!  

      also the fuel prices have increased a bit

      How the hell your engine survived with zero ml of engine oil?

      Did you mean nothing was showing on dipstick?

      Yep, nothing. Fortunately there were not too many trips taken without any engine oil or it would have been a disaster.

    • Well, 

      Turns out it wasn't because of the hole in the exhaust. It was because....wait for it....the car was running on zero ml of engine oil. Yeah, it never occured to me to check the level of engine oil. Topped it yesterday and works just fine.

    • In theory, a straight pipe can help MPG but not by a noticeable amount. In practice, it noticeably brings it down because you’re always driving everywhere with your foot to the floor to hear the exhaust note. Been there, done that. 

      There are many, many factors that can introduce a rich running condition, you don’t need a tune be it a remap or whatever. Running rich can cause pops and bangs in the exhaust but it’s not always a good thing. You will end up with a melted catalytic converter and spark plugs so black they won’t ignite the mix properly under normal driving conditions.
