" So anybody with a brain would gladly give it up as soon as there is a comparable alternative available."
So change stuff as long as it does not affect you in any way because it can easily be replaced. Really sounds like caring.
" tiny -------- who need their truck to be LOUD in order to compensate for their biological shortcomings."
Your fixation is showing, also your lack of mechanical knowledge.
Generally speaking less restrictive exhaust promotes efficiency in larger engines that do not need back-pressure, it's power and mpg at the expense of decibel level. So those "loud" exhaust systems are better for the environment. Funny how that works huh?

So keep stuff the same, as long as it doesn't affect you in any way, because the damage will fall on future generations.
Your lack of automotive knowledge is showing. There are engineers who make their living designing the way a car sounds in order to appeal to the genital-compensation crowd. If MPG was their concern they would be driving more efficient cars.
