Default Intake Mod

What do you think? Not wanting to spend $300 on a cold air intake I made my own intake for the total cost of $30. Most intake kits breath the same hot engine compartment air so I eliminated the tube also. Why have any restriction at all?
The throttle response improved with the mod just like the kits I have installed on past vehicles. The big surprise was the additional 3 mpg increase with out the trailer and a 1.5 mpg increase while towing. I pull a trailer daily for my business so every mpg counts.
