Question for those running a Delkevic exhaust, do you have any popping on de-cel?

Are you thinking in the terms of a backfire, or rumble?  I've not heard anything even close to a backfire, baffle in or out.  A really cool "rumble" as slow down, yep.... 

Now, my 63 Chevy (geez I'm old) POPPED...  It would send women and children running during a high RPM decel.  :rotflmao:

I hit a record Miles per gallon on a fill-up, and they only thing change recently was adding the Delkavic 18” Tri-Oval.  I’m wondering if the exhaust could possible improve the MPG?  If nothing else it’s lighter.

I like the rumble and popping on the Decel when downshifting.  It looks great too.

My mileage went up as well when I installed mine. My guess is better airflow and less weight.

Just bought the Delkavic 13" Trioval. I luv it. Sounds fantastic and looks great too. Pops very little on decal but I like that too. If you want quite go with the 18".

I too just ordered the tri-oval carbon 13"! I really like the sound of the OEM but the potato cannon scares the neighborhood children!!!   :-\

And hopefully I'll also get an increase in fuel economy...

I have one but just put it for sale.

A tad bit too loud for me in the early morning when trying to commute to work *respect for neighbors*

I'll say this though.

It sounds good and is MUCH lighter than stock.

I'm probably going to go stock xz14 duals.  I'm hoping it is quiet and flows good.

Just mounted up a 13' stainless tri-oval.
Popping on decel?
Absolutely!... and I am loving it!  :)
