I'm thinking about installing the Mopar cold air intake. I've heard it helps on the mpg and the horsepower. Any input on the subject??? I'm sure it would be the same on other types of cars if it does work.

while its true intakes add 1mpg or so in theory, in reality they take away MPG because you end up driving the car harder when you hear that intake roar!

You know my pain...the window says 18-24... I do not think I have ever reached 18 mpg's in it (usually around 17 mpgs), but we always have short around town trips.

My 2 vehicles:
van = 17 mpgs and the
Legend = 17.7 (now that the cold weather is back...I was 19.5 in the Summer)

Doing my part to keep the Going Green Initiative from becoming too successful....damn!...at least I have CFL's at home

...only positive is my wife drives the van less than 7,000 miles a year and I drive the Legend less than 6,500 miles per year.
