|mikebontoft||anyway to get back on topic, why the duct tape? when I did mine, I bought the intake filter that fits up to like 4" or 4.5" and used the proper ring that fit around the intake tube. left the bottom box in the same way though so the snorkel was there.|

The trick with the above is staying off the Gas because with the exhaust and intake you will like the sound of your car better.
and then use cruse control and go 65MPH or so, commute if you can to avoid rush hour (either leave earlier or much later). Keep the RPM's under 3k, go with a skinny tire when you need to replace them. Shed unwanted weight (is it worth a little extra MPG if you have to use your insurances free tow service to get the flat fixed?) Roll windows down when going under 40ish MPH and only use the vents (no AC) when at Freeway speeds. Proper tire pressure, only keep the tank 1/2 or 1/4 full so your carrying around less weight...
there are lots of things that can be done in addition to the tune up. it all depends on crazy you want to get.

I only get 25-28 mpg
I see you get 37mpg. I have the same car you have and i only get 25-28 mpg. I drive far for work all highway miles. Can you give me ideas how to get better gas mileage?

This is something quite common with cars for a while especially zetecs and spis. I hope you didn't get a cheap filter, they usually allow bad crap to be sucked in, and trust me it gets real dirty in there. The extra 10-15 bucks is worth it for a k&n/AEM filter. Why the duct tape? Before I bought a full intake system I just clamped mines without tape to the maf sensor housing. The MPG is probably because your previous filter was dirty.

this is basically a home made short ram intake. Looks like you blocked off a little bit of your snorkle intake from the stock airbox location
