I'm looking for an intake to work the the exhaust but keep atleast the same gas mileage or hopefully even better mileage. What intake would you guys recommend if any?
It really depends on your driving. The best mileage I have gotten with my commute is out of the drop-in/snorkel delete. Without the snorkel delete I only had better throttle response, and with the Newmission I lost 3 mpg. My driving is mainly city/rural as it is my work car and there are no highways/interstates in my commute.

I took the car on one long highway/interstate drive once (with Newmission installed), and while I can't confirm it it did appear as though I was getting much better mileage with the mod in those conditions.
