I saw 1-2 mpg increase. Mostly for HWY driving. Problem was after I got the intake on my foot got heavier for a while. Shortly after my foot finally lightened up a bit I got the INTENSE PCM and smaller pulley. Instant foot weight gainer!

as i stated earlier.. i working on aluminum shield.. this is prototype of course.. the real thing will be well insulated and made of heavier gauge aluminum- it is formed to fit like a glove and i am hoping to it will function.. and look way better than the one i posted a pic of earlier

finally welded and trew this bad boy on.. it seems to be working great!! and looks pretty good too..
the inside walls of the metal box feel cool after about forty minutes of driving in 80 degree weather so i would say it shields well enough

got the pics of mine up now, but insted of double posting pics i'll just link to the thread.
