I have not noticed a MPG gain at all from my open cone, maybe it is too big? Or the fact that it is not a true CAI. Lastly, many people on Clubgp, have noticed a loss in their MPG since installing the intake.

I think a ton of people are including me! Being that it is not a true CAI moght be a factor also like you said.

i def agree that i get on it more just to hear the sound, but don't know about gas mileage. i love the whine-i'll have to try the tunnel, or overpass thing too. and mine'* just warm air also-too much snow, slush up here for CAI.
