My driving has changed, but definitely not toward a slowing trend. This thing sounds great above 3000rpm. It makes the engine have a nicer roaring type sound, so I have been accelerating a little harder while I get to cruising speed so I can hear it . I travel 65 on the highway. The only thing that has really changed is that I have been using rev matching and engine braking a lot more. Also, I've been running the engine a little faster when it's still cold, so that my O2 sensor gets to temp as soon as possible. The engine and all gets to normal temp is under 2 minutes now, and I shift to a higher gear. Not sure what the effect of each component of change is.
