Regarding Exhaust Spacers, anyone done it noticed this?

So, I added my Teraflex exhaust spacers this morning. Now, I am not trying to sound crazy, or make any claims here, but for those who have added them.

Did you notice an improvement in acceleration?

I swear I am not making this up, my Jeep seemed more peppy after adding these Spacers. I also am aware this is in no way a performance product. Could perhaps extending the exhaust lines 2" have done something that noticeable?

Ummmm...no.

Okay, you're right. I don't know. But I'd say it was wishful thinking, at best. If TF even THOUGHT that your Jeep, with the spacer added, would go .00000000000000000000000001% faster, they'd be remiss as a business if they didn't make that claim.

Maybe it has something to do with your aftermarket pipes?

It was peppier and sounded different...

EDIT: NM, I got it! I forgot I did a half tank fillup (By Accident) with 93 Octane Friday, perhaps the gas finally mixed in, hahahaha. NM.

I forgot, I had found a different gas station that I never used before. It was one that still had the four nozzles that each one is different octane, very rare now to find that.

Not paying attention got me for about $4 bucks more due to that.

Was it the gas station at the airport? That gas is much more expensive than the 87 oct we use, I would not know if it is $4 dollars more...
