how many miles do you have on your car? If you have 1k-2k, give the car a few thousand mroe miles or so and you will begin to see a diffence in mpg.

get a injen cold air intake , I have calculated it out to about 1.3 more mpg than a stock intake.

the injen intake is a direct oem replacement which means , it has a mounting slot / hole for the MAF sensor and there isn't a check engine light that comes on

well i got a matrix intake and it does have a hole for the sensor. i tried to install it and had to drill the hole a bit bigger to fit the sensor. then i got it installed and the engine would cut off after starting it. the sensor doesnt fit perfectly in the hole and tere is a gap so would i just get the injen cai and sell the matrix one.
