You probably are, I and others have noticed this as well.

My belief is that it is breathing better, but also getting more fuel added by the ECU to maintain a typical factory pig-rich condition.

If we ever get tuning support for this motor, we should be able to optimize the fuel trims to airflow and see better mileage then an untuned stock motor. If we ever get tuning

I did the delete of the snorkel and shroud at 1000mi. My mileage has either risen or stayed the same but has not dropped. Obviously new engine break in comes into play.

But I wonder what deleting it so soon into the cars life did to the ECU as far as learning. I also haven't run anything less than 91 octane from first tank. I average, even in the winter, 29 mpg with 50/50 hwy/city and in the fall was getting 31mpg a tank. I'm happy.

Yeah if ever, but right now I am kinda frustrated because I was averaging atleast 29 now Im getting a flat 27...but the car is so much more responsive.

I have NEVER run 91, I honestly do not see the point since our car is meant for 87. And from what I understand higher octanes are used purposefully to prevent engine knock at higher compression ratios which I understand our car has a 12:1. Is it really worth buying more expensive gas?

You should read the owners manual reference your, "meant for 87" statement.
