Cold Air Intake

Does anybody use one? I've got an '01 6-banger and I commute with it about 70 miles 3-4 times a week. So far my gas mileage is pretty damn good at 17.8 mpg, but I was wondering if a CAI could get me up to about 20. Of course increased throttle response would be nice, too. Thanks for the input.

It ain't no fun unless you get some of it on you.

When you have a choice, buy American.

I have the Brute Force Intake w/ Spacer and have realized significant improvement in HP and Torque, but mine is not a DD and I have only put 1 1/2 tanks of gas through it since the install, so the Jury is still out on an increase in MPG..

"""""my thoughts are more air means more dirt"""""

Good thinking! Why not just plug it off completely, then no way dirt can possibly get in!

The sticker from the CAI will boost 5 horse. Thats about all your gonna get from it. Waste of lift loot.
You'll be in a great mood all day because you'll be slapping all your troubles away.

Cold air intake

I agree with the people who say don't waste the lift money...I put an AEM brute force intake w/ spacer on @ 19k increase in MPG, but it is quicker "off the line" and sounds cool...that is about it...
