Don't expect any major increases in mpg from any of these mods. The best way to get mpg is good maintenance and driving habits. To answer your question abou the air scoop it would help if you post a picture or model of the cai you are talking about.

Its the volant for the 4.7 and the scoop comes in from the bumper at the fog light opening.Did some more research since that post found there should be no issues with water .volants website says they have baffles in them to prevent water from getting up to the filter.

My guess is that you would be wasting your money by buy the scoop, but thats just me. I have the volant CAI on my 4.7l flex and i love it. I dont have the scoop installed, but it would be nice to have one, I just dont know if it is going to get colder air. The basic box has a tube that goes down pretty far under the hood.
