Even if there were gains, the amount of money you spend on an intake can never be made up at the gas pump.

Let's say an intake see 5% improvement in MPGs. That's being VERY generous. This means you would save approximately a half gallon every time you fill up. Say your intake cost $300, at current prices it would take you 200 fill ups to see the cost benefit. Thats, give or take, 80k miles.

A good rule of thumb is... Don't do mods to improve gas mileage. The gains you will see will take years to realize.
