? For M6 V8 CAI

Anyone that has the CAI, I want to know before I get one if it effects your fuel mileage. I have heard both ways, most people tell me they got better, but I want some good honest answers from Camaro owners. Anyone that has one, did you notice a change? Good or bad or the same. I average on my trips about 24-26mpg in mine and don't want to screw with getting worse, I think that is great for a V8 anyway. Thanks for you imput, also include the brand you got and the approximate price you paid I would appreciate it. V8 owners only.
Thanks
Bill

Well just IMO, Anyone that drives a V8 really didn't get it for the mpg??? That's what the V6's R for and why we have one of each....

Changing to any cai shouldn't make much difference in gas mileage. Whether it's a V6 or V8, one's gas mileage is mostly dependant on the person behind the steering wheel and how they use of their right foot

If I drive conservatively during my daily commute, I can avg 23mpg with my SS, under 20mpg if I drive spritited. My gas mileage hasn't changed pre and post mods. So go for it.

Thanks.. I wasn't worried about fuel mileage so much when i got it, figured it would suck it down, but after doing so well, didnt want to screw it up..

A lot of times, your fuel economy will improve, until you realize the extra power it gives you, and then you drive faster, and suck more fuel!

Didn't notice a big improvement with my Fastlane intake but I did notice a 2 mpg improvement just by switching to Non-ethanol gasoline. Went from 21 to 23mpg.

Yea should give you a MPG bump... but like [email protected] said once you start hearing that sucking noise you have a hard time staying off the throttle. I've always had that problem though
