I have wondered the same thing, but.......then there wouldn't be any "aftermarket companies" in business. That's my thinking on it.
However, I'm not sold on that much of a gain in mpg either (no offense.) Kinda like when I bought my tonneau cover, or first bought my truck. For the first few trips I constantly checked the digital mpg numbers and smiled, now I dont even want to look because its no where near as good.

When I first got it 16.5, after the tonneau cover 17+, and now about 14-15. I have a K&N cai, I guess my driving style has changed and I'm not constantly worried about mpg.

Yeah. I was also impressed with the quality of everything. I don't mind spending the money for quality parts. It's a clean setup, especially the air box.
