I don't have many probs with flats and don't stray too far. I think for now instead of mufflers, I need to buy a better intercooler.... then maybe an exhaust later on.
For a light weight Porsche, every 66 pounds is about a tenth of a second according to my calculations.

Divide 100 pounds by the estimated weight of your car and you will get a percentage, which actually equals the equivalent extra power you will feel. It is around 3.5 to 4 percent.

Save a couple hundred pounds and you are looking at maybe 8% more power to weight ratio.
