    but the pipe is round, how can it be square inches?

    but yeah, 25% better unless it wasn’t a restriction, then it’s just heavier

    hope it makes a difference did you determine what caused the head gasket issue?

    High RPM launches and manual transmission operation ....

    As always, not enough fuel and too much timing. Added more fuel and go from there.

    The down pipe helped .... Getting over my concerns of rear differential multiplication helped a lot (Fear of gear) ... Fixing the bump steer so it didn't try and change lanes 3x a pass helped ... Even changing the head gasket so the combustion process stayed in the holes helped. Lots of details.
