best MPG?
 
I admit I know nothing about exhaust I dont even know where to start I have a 2013 qc with a vararam, 87mm PTB and tuner what is the best option to help with MPG?

change out Y pipe and upgrade to a free flow muffler like a magnaflow..

Agreed ^

.... and For a few pennies more, change out the DS exhaust bank that runs under the transmission that has a nice restrictive crimp.

^--- What they both said...

Or just turn the truck off and stare at how beautiful it is after waxing it.. Ultimate fuel saver :LOL:

When you say change out the y pipe what are you changing it to?

thanks,

go underneath truck and follow the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifolds, where they meet is the Y pipe.. dodge chose to pinch the pipe together to get it to fit a single pipe, this is the bottleneck of the exhaust. an aftermarket Y will merge the pipes where there isn't such a restriction...
