How does gas mileage change with the intake mods (CAI, SRI, or anything else you have done).

im just curious something maybe we should start noticing, and yes i am sure the MPG goes down with these new toys in the begining, but after the novelty wears off how is the gas milege?

Well, I got 31 MPG doing 80+ MPH going to Florida recently and I have an Injen CAI. So, I don't think it hurts gas mileage at all.

I think it does help...certainly doesn't hurt. It's worth the investment. :)

Joker, did you ever get yours installed?

only reason its hurts your gas mileage at first is because everyone always floors it or gets up to high rpms when shifting to hear that nice roar that everyone loves. But after awhile when you get used to it and drive normal again the CAI will not hurt at all but only help your gas mileage a bit.

I'm more inclined to suggest how your driving style affects your MPG other than anything else.
