since black absorbes heat try painting the box white since that disipates heat it should help a lil bit more

A little off-base. That'* the same coating I use to dissipate heat on the superchargers I rebuild. It'* wrinkled to increase surface area.

A black car will COOL faster than a white car as well as heat up but ONLY if it'* allowed to absorb heat. His has airflow over it constantly.

Google the 'black body' theory.

Will, I had only asked this question one time and your answer of "1-2 mpg under the right conditions" was the only answer that I got. I just wanted to get some other oppinions of what other peoples mods had done for them. Also no one else has answered the question, but you, so there is no "we" telling me anything. But Thanks.

will is correct in saying 1-2 miles in optimum conditions... he happens to know quite a bit about these cars. and in my opinion his word is gold. and im sure its hard to tell for anyone with an intake as the acceleration is so much better its hard not to be into the gas

Jarod, Tpulliam was at a meet at my place last month. I sent him home with 4mpg better than what he came down with. His drive down was primarily downhill, and in spite of the uphill drive home, he still got better mileage. Half that was probably the intake he installed while he was here. Primarily because he took the time to insulate it at least temporarily at that time.

Bill...Taylor and I were racking our heads the other day when we worked on my car. On the '94, it has these little "side boxes" coming off of the air duct, WTF??? Is it not the correct understanding that a straight flow is best, why these empty boxes? Just a question. Will get pics posted if you need to see what I am talking about. Also, what exactly are you guys referring to with the "gutted air box" talk. What is gutted...want the CAI from i think Intense, but can't afford. (I like the looks of it, as well as want the improved MPG) Thanks. ~Brandon~

The little "box" on the intake tube is a whine baffle, along with the ones on the intake snout of the air filter box. They were put there to quiet down the whine, as when buyers bought these cars new, they didn't want to hear the whine as it was sold as a sport luxury sedan. Now on the other hand, we love to rip that crap off to hear the lovely whine of the M62.

Works the same way on alot of cars. My Dad'* Durango had a huge baffle box to quiet down the roar at WOT, but that changed when we put a intake on.

My 95 had the same resonators on the intake as your 94. Note I said HAD.
