well.. think of it this way.. every mod you pop on yoru car... per 3HP or so.. dependin on the mod. IE cold air... your loosin almost 1.4 mpg per 3HP... with headers, expect to loose 2mpg more... with exaust though, it fixes this, and adds the MPG back up... so it all evens out.

Wait, you were doing 288 miles for half a tank!?! So youre doing 576 mpg for like 15 gallons!?! I do about 250-300 miles for a whole tank. I think you made a typo?

...I drove to pa last week and got 270 mpg city/hwy... I 'm not sure but my o2 sensor is bad I think.
dayum! wish i could get 270 mpg! HA, j/k.

i've been 40+ mpg several times tho. but it's hard to even break 30 mpg now that i have my cai. it's too fun not to play with.

I get about 34-35mpg most city, some highway. I had a grand am that *barely* got 10, if driven easily. I got like, 140 miles to a tank if I was very damn lucky...


now I get at least 300 to every about 3/4 tank

When I drove from Colorado to NY on my stock 200sx, I swear that I was getting around 400-450 per tank. Must be cause I was going "downhill" the whole time. :)

On the way back, I only got 275-300 per tank. :(



With the Injen intake at the present, I am only getting around 285-300 per tank combination street and highway mileage.

I was wondering what you guys thought the best Cold air intake was...
How do you feel about the Dragon Intake by Weapon-R?

i think you should get the pacesetter instead of greddy exhaust (greddy sucks compared to pacesetter...syke)....moron, why even consider pacesetter why dont you return your HS CAI and get weapon r instead????
