So this may sound dumb, but how does water get into the Axlebacks ? I have Flowmasters . Do I need to drill a drain hole ? If so in the front or rear ?

From the engine down the longtubes through the mud pipe and into the mufflers.

I could not believe how much water from condensation would lay in the mufflers until I drilled a small hole on the bottom and watch it drain out after driving it.

You would be amazed how much better your exhaust tone sounds when water is not in the mufflers.

You have convinced me. What would you say about a 1/8 " hole in the bottom of the muffler ? I'm doing mine tomorrow. You know you can learn so much from following these threads. Thanks Again

Thanks for tip again Kona. Its raining here in the Trinity's, got cabin fever, so I went out in the shop and drilled a small hole,1/8th, in the lowest point in each muffler. I bet I got 1/2 or close to 2/3 cup of water between the too. Amazing!

As I recall, some of the Borla muffler installation instructions require drilling of a small drain hole. Don't think it's too critical but 3/32" kind of rings a bell.

I'm actually surprised the manufacturers don't place a hole in the bottom. I actually learned that trick from a muffler business, who told me about it.

Now this doesn't have anything to do with exhaust. This year I learned about a product called "Damp Rid". If you have cars in the garage that you don't drive everyday you can hang one of these Damp Rid bags inside the car & it will amaze you the amount of water that it catches. Here in eastern NC where the humidity is usually high, you can collect about a quart of water every 90 days. That's water that would be in your dash or interior. Or carpet. You can get these from Walmart or Costco. There are 4 bags in the box for about $ 19.95. This is a years supply.

Dang that sounds great!

I do have a ? tho. Was it smoking due to the cam tune, not totally up to temp, or does it just do that.

I think its just the built up condensation in the axlebacks that its pushing out. Thanks for all the kind words guys. I couldn't be happier with its sound. It sounds as aggressive as a V6 can sound and it really sounds cammed out. Even a car enthusiast would think its cammed out.

The car really now has a rumble like old school muscle and its amazing. When I rev the engine now, the tone is different from this Ghost Cam tune than prior. Sounds like a canmed out rev and not tinny or high pitched. The Ghost Cam tune really seemed to change the pitch of the exhaust when reving it. I'll have to show you guys what I'm talking about with another quick video.

I'm wondering if there is a way to extend the lope into a low throttle driving tune. Goes away after 2500 rpm and/or if you accelerate past 50% throttle...

So if water is collecting it will help in rusting out the inside and now you have to buy new mufflers.

It's been a long term since I looked at MPT website. Just noticed they have an Economical tune option. Has anyone else used that at all?

Yes, I use the Mpt 87-89 octane economy tune most all the time. I think it's pretty good. A step up from the factory tune and the gas milage is good . I also have a 87-89 octane performance tune w/ghost cam idle & the 93 octane performance tune. All the tunes I have received from Mpt have been very good.

Papa, do you have an auto trans? If so on the 87-89 performance tune, do you have the street shift on that tune?

Yes I have an automatic & yes I have the street shifts on all tunes. To me it is firm enough. However I'm enjoying shifting myself in the sport mode.

I might just try this out soon enough. I'm thinking get a 93 performance tune and a 87 economy tune.

Have sct mpt tuner on the way. Got Chill shift on the economy tune, picked street for the performance 87-89 tune, race w/cam for the 91 tune. just trying to get an idea of what the street shift is gonna feel like. I'm hoping I made the right choices.

Just curious but for someone who was going to use this Ghost Cam tune as their main all the time tune, do you see any long term damage caused to the engine from the tune independently adjusting how fast the cam rotates which gives it the lope?

Since its only doing this at idle, I don't see it causing any damage to the engine in the long run.
And while MPT states that this tune is now compatible with cats, it may just be that the revised tune doesn't foul out the cats nearly as quickly as it use to. You're still putting extra unburnt fuel into the exhaust system. There's no way that wouldn't shorten the lifespan of the cats at least to some degree.
