After installing my Injen SRI I noticed about a 2-3 MPG decrease. The car gets good enough gas mileage as it is, so it's no big deal IMO.

With my SRI it went down for a few weeks because I was driving it hard just so I could hear it. After a few weeks though it was no big deal and actually went up about 1-2 MPG.

supposedly an intake will increase your mpg slightly, but most everyone I know who has an intake drives their car a little harder 'cause they like the sound, so they tend to get a decrease in mpg...oh well!

actually, this topic has been discussed and it should be in the archive, but i won't flame ya since it haven't discussed in a long while


most of us found that we are losing milage, but not such a power inscrease, i remember someone said a 30% mpg decrease and 5% performance increase, a lot of the members has removed their cai and sri to regain their previous lost miles. but this is the first time i heard you gain miles[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]
