No, they're so different that it wouldn't even have been remotely installable.

lol i dont drive like a granda at all lol. it dropped down a bit when i couldn't keep my foot off the pedal cause this intake sounds so awesome haha. but even going about 75mph at a constant speed it still was reading 48mpg man. i dunno why it is getting such good mileage. i have only added the intake so far. i run synthetic oil and put premium gas in it.(92-93 octane). No Tune(: should help when i get the tune from fswerks in the next few weeks or so.

It roughly calculates it using inputs such as throttle position, engine load, rpm, injector on time, etc etc. Its not terribly accurate but it does ok.

If the MPG measured by hand is anything near that, you are one lucky guy!. I get 28-29 hand measured in the city, highway is usually 31-32 at 75mph.

Usually it goes sky high when you fill up and get right on the highway, mine read 47.5 mpg one time. Did you happen to take any pictures of the mounting bracket before you attached it to the rubber mount, like just sitting there? Any slipping of the coupler on the throttle body?

What exactly is it you wanted a pic of? And no I've had no slipping at all. Fits very securely. The mounting bracket where it attached to the body of the car is meant to give a little due to the engine twirking when started or jolted. But at the throttle body and down to that bracket it is very sturdy and solid.
