I don't get why that would be, going to give it another tank or so.

I was averaging 33-34 and now I am averaging 31-32.
I don't know or understand why you might see a drop (not saying it isn't happening) with an OEM filter because the OEM filter restricts air in the same manner. I only have one dyno that was mis-calibrated on the OEM filter, but it showed the same hp (tq is what needs calibration) with the delete as without.

Keep an eye on it and hand-calc if possible for comparison. I will say that this car is extremely touchy with air modifications, as my mileage is already starting to creep back up after removing the Newmission this weekend.
