I think the HP percentage gain is pretty optimistic but I have one installed and I'm happy with it. I couldn't tell you if it gave any noticeable power but it felt like it did when I installed it. It is an attention getter though. When I pop the hood everyone wants to talk about it.

Did anybody see any mileage increase or drop? And where is the best place to get one as I have looked everywhere and can't find them.

You have to buy from Vararam unless you find a used one. As far as mileage I don't know if it went up or down because with exhaust and intake you keep your foot in it lol.

They sure are a pretty penny but I am going to save my pennies to eventually get one!

I'm sure there are gains if any but I want one just for the looks.

I found mine used in here for a great price or I wouldn't have bought one.

I was looking at the Vararam website, and they do cost a pretty penny, but they're not that much more expensive than a decent CAI.

Perhaps Steve above can work out some sort of deal for you. Hell Clark from AA does it all the time for members
