CAI & Magnaflow installed PICS
Back in town from work this week and had a chance to get my first round of performance mods installed.

First off was a Magnaflow 18" muffler, removing the rear resonator and installing a 3.5" rolled edge tip. Not sure why they installed the muffler vertically, but it sounds awesome. I'll try and get a sound clip up soon.

Next was a used Volant CAI in fantastic condition purchased from a forum member for a great price. The install took about 10 minutes and looks great. I drove around town a little bit with the CAI installed but didn't have a chance to really open things up and see if I could notice a difference.

Prior to the mods I was getting 14.5 mpg average. On the way back from getting the exhaust installed the trip computer had me at over 20 mpg on mostly back roads with rolling hills. It probably helped that I got stuck behind a truck and had to do 45-55 the whole 60 miles home. I filled the tank today and will hand calculate next fill-up to see what I gained.

Great mods! I've noticed that if I cruise at 65 I get better mileage than when I cruise at 75 (road trips) so I'm not surprised you got a great mileage figure at that speed.

Got to drive the truck about 250 miles this weekend. Highway combined with some major hills up and down. Only used about 1/2 a tank, so looks good so far. I'll post what my hand calculated mileage is once I finish the tank.
