I added the Intake System on mine. Better fuel mileage, doubtful, but throttle response is better. I run less RPMs climbing hills without needing to floor it and hear the engine scream at 4500 RPMs. I'm sure some of it depends on the traffic around me and how I'm able to get a good run at the hill. I will tell you that before if I lost momentum because of someone cutting me off or just dying going up the hill I would have to floor it to barely move. Now with this situation I can start gaining speed at lower RPMs and I may be burning more fuel or not, at least I'm not abusing the engine as badly as before. This is my personal experience so it's not just an opinion.

Charlie,
Did you install the Air Intake system yourself? If so, was it easy?

I am mechanically inclined, but it looks very cramped and difficult to manuever in the engine compartment.

Thanks!

Yes it's very simple. The only thing a little tricky is getting the original out. You need to turn it to follow the curving but that's all. I removed the hose clamps wherever I could get to them so it came out in a couple pieces. It took about an hour to do. You do need to transfer one sensor but the kit is set up so it fits right in.

Charlie,
Thanks for the info. I think I will add this to my wish list and present my proposal to SWMBO for purchase approval.
Adam
