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.

I agree with the touchiness of allowing it to breath more. I've also been revving to here her growl after I did my hole saw mod. Still good mpg's, but nowhere near exceptional. I've never had exceptional, 34ish is my best tank in 10k miles.
