CAI effect on gas efficency?

How much less km's per tank do you get now, after you have CAI in comparision to your stock air box?

and

Does getting a different filter change anything? like one that either restricts air flow a little or allows more air flow a little? like i see some of those with built on heat shields and ractive has some that the end looks like a jet engine or something....

I gained fuel efficiancy...most people complain they loose...but I think its just cuz their foot gets heavier, cuz CAI produce a nice growl when you tromp on it...

Nothing can Beat a good K&N cone...lifetime warrenty, rechargeable, most efficiant airflow....

well personally I gained .....

but I also started alot of highway driving ....

now I put the stock stuff back on it went down ..but at the same time I think I'm slamming more on the gas to try and see the same power .... although I'm also not doing as much highway driving

itll lower your fuel efficiency on cold days....cause the air is colder and denser than what the stock air box would pull in (hot *** air) so your MAP/MAF will compensate by adding more fuel...thus less gas mileage...

BUT youll also change your efficiency when you tromp on it...Im not trying to disprove anyone...just adding my two cents
