Magnaflow installed

I've had my Magnaflow exhaust in for about 2 weeks now. My observations:

1) My 0-60 times have actually dropped by 0.2 seconds :mad
2) Sounds great. Really makes the SSR sound powerful
3) Gas mileage has improved by almost 1mpg :) (I guess this was unexpected)

I will re-examine everything again in 2 more weeks and give an updated report.


ADDED:
The in cab resonance that I didn't like at 1200-1400rpm is now gone, but there is a slightly muted resonance that takes place at 2100-2300rpm which is around 70-75mph.
When not pressing on the gas the exhaust is extremely quiet, but when you get on it, the sound is great.

Is quoting myself bad etiquette? Oh well.
1) My 0-60 times are around 6.7 seconds now.
2) Still sounds great.
3) Gas mileage looks to have leveled out at 18.1 mpg which is better than the 17 something mpg I was getting before.

Was is worth the $620 (parts and labor)? eh, I'm middle of the road about it.
