On your vehicle we get customers telling us they get increased mileage from 1 to 4 mpg. This depends on your driving style, added accessories and bigger tires.

This kit will not effect the mass air sensor. You can buy this kit from most sponsors on this forum depending on price and service!

The EPA has tested many aftermarket bolt-on parts, NONE has increased the mileage by more than 3%. 3% is their threshold for measurement certainty.

The EPA would nearly mandate a company's aftermarket technology if they could prove that consumers would see a REAL mpg improvement of more than 3% (13 mpg x 3% = 0.4 mpg). I heard this directly from Sid at CARB (those in the industry know exactly who Sid is).

If anybody tells you that their aftermarket part/invention can get more than, in this case, 0.4mpg, then either they will soon be multi-multi-billionaires because the EPA will mandate their invention on all production vehicles or they are merely spreading customers' "rumors" that have zero scientific basis.

If you want improved mileage, the real keys are here: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/drive.shtml

I personally like reducing weight because that improves mpg, acceleration, and cornering.

If you want improved torque and power across the rpm range, there are the two intakes that I recommend:
Outlaw Power's intake with NeverOil filter

and
Banks Power's intake with oiled cotton filter

I agree, Intakes are power adders not economizers. However, it's not unrealistic to see a small increase. My saying is Fuel mileage is a function of your right foot.
