Hello and welcome, did you both to use the search boxes at the top of the site?

An intake makes the motor breathe easier, it does increase HP and it does use a slight bit more fuel, but you can always conserve fuel by not pressing it!
thanks
I will install and will tell how it goes

general rule is you should technically be able to save gas as long as you dont "press it" lol

most people dont get a intake for that reason and will "press it" so you will waste more gas

if i were you i would just get a cold air and switch from short ram or cold air accordingly....
(cold air intake can be made into a short ram intake just by removing the secondary pipe that goes into the wheel well)

I would say the gains/losses of mpg will be negligible. Any changes are likely attributed to your driving style (pressing it) after the subsequent mod.

Once you put on the sri and hear those secondaries open, it will be hard to not 'press it'....lol
