Please would people stop with this MPG hogwash re: intakes.

Pumping losses in most intake designs are negligible until you reach 400hp airflow levels.

The intake is a cosmetic and engine noise upgrade, not a performance upgrade unless the stock intake is remarkably restrictive, which happens, oh, never.

Do you people honestly think steeda and FSwerks really figured out how to get multiple percent fuel economy improvements where Ford engineers failed?

But what do I know, I'm just a mechanical engineer.
