In general, on this site, you'll find testing showing warm air intakes a benefit (or no change) to FE. In general cold air intake systems are understood to improve power modestly and reduce FE a little.

Get the "ecomodder.com" sticker by donating to the EM site (or just buying one)... promote the community!

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
