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.

Well I do maybe 14 miles round trip which is 85% on the freeway. And before I did the exhaust and also forgot the mention I added rims with slightly larger tires and I use to get roughly 39mpg driving like an old lady since the whole reason I bout the car was to "commute" and save gas, but now I get 35 so I don't know if I lost mpg because the speedo is off because of the larger tires(I know this becase of my truck). But I'm hoping with my small "commute" I can do an intake and get better mpg, or just the drop in/replacement knn. And other diy mods like new miss. And snorkal delete.

I don't wanna cut anything until I hear from others and can tell which works best for mpg. I'm not really looking for performance. I already have that a built 05 f150 prerunner and a 2011 gsxr750.
