btw, how do you get such good mileage?... i'm averaging 31 city/hwy.
Thanks! Im not sure. lol I used to never get over 30. The CAI buymped it up alot, but then the 17s dragged it back down. The flex back exhaust helped more, then the header helped more. When I took the roofrack off that bumped it up alot. I just shift when the economic shift light tells me to. lol Oh and since my ac was broken I never used ac. But a month ago when I checked it I got 34 with using the ac.

Weird. Maybe my car is just magical. :P

What is your intake? Just a cone filter?

maybe swap out your plugs and oil. Maybe also try getting an ITG filter if you think that has anything to do with it.

oh now you tell me! i'm still running regular oil, nothing special. i should probably switch soon. and i heard (from one person) the E3 plugs weren't the best. but apparently they are! lol

Honestly I dont think they really made a difference. lol I think all new plugs will give you better mpg than the old ones simply because they are new. Yeah I switched to synthetic on my last oil change.

is that the filter on the FsWerks? i thought making the heat shield like the fswerks would improve it somehow. and i haven't checked the plugs since i got the car... i should probably look into that.
