Now ditch the insanely restrictive airbox. CAI's are stupid cheap for these cars.

I'd love to find the engineer behind the W-body's airbox setup, and punch him in the face.

I would like to smack alot of engineers for there oil filter locations. Toyota is 1# on my list...... yea lets put it up front under the manifold so you get burned when changing it.

Does the box reduce my gas mileage? If you guys can tell me anything I should/can do to improve efficiency, I might do it. This isn't a go fast car, its my economical, daily driver. The Phoenix gets all the toys

Stock airbox = junk.

You will see a slight increase in MPGs, and the fun factor is so worth it.
