Cold Air Intake and SuperChip
 
I'm on my third day with my new Airaid Cold Intake, and 7 months of using just the SuperChip. I'm running the 87 octane program on my 2010 4dr Mountain with 32 inch tires. The SuperChip gave me about 2 more mpg and a noticeable increase in torque and horse power. I can mainly see the hp boost when driving up steep inclines. Over the last 3 days and about 150 miles of driving a mix of city and highway I have gained 2.2 mpg with the cold air intake and can feel a boost in horse power in the 2500 to 3000 rpm range. I then did a little test and returned my vehicle to the Stock settings and drove about 30 miles tonight. With out the SuperChip programming I lost all increase in mpg. I went from 18.7 city down to 14.5 and all increase in horse power. I have come to the inclusion that the Cold Air intake alone does not increase gas milage or hp but when combined

I am thinking about the S&B Cold Air Intake myself. I like their box design that snaps right in were the stock box fits. Not sure that it will help or not but with all the other work that I am doing it may help with all the combination of work done

Always interesting that there are people on both sides of this saying neither does anything and both do something?

Did you remember to put the sticker on? The sticker is good for 5-10hp.

People have different driving habits and different topography. Indiana is very flat, the Ozarks where I live is very hilly, and I would expect different results. But folks never seem to consider this.
