    Holy crap. The XDI True Flow is definately more impressive than the AIRAID. At Least for me that is. Dont get me wrong, AIRAID was ok, but I can feel & hear the difference. There is so much more airflow at upper RPM's, that my Borla has a deeper rumble note. At low RPM's it's smooth. Dont know about MPG due to the fact that I was stomping the gas to hear that sweet note. But one thing for sure, when I started it up after install, my fuel gauge started to go up after driving for a while. I know this aint supposed to happen, but it was sure funny.

    Yup. It's not that bad. If I owned a 4 Bedroom off base around here, I dont think my BAH will cover. Waiting to get p/u for SFC/E-7, then I will live out on the economy. Looking out around Hoke county area or so.

    hell, i'd just stay in base housing unless u were planning on seperating/retiring in the area. if i were still in, i'd either rent or stay on base.

    I know what you mean... I aint in no rush. I am 5 min from my unit, less mileage on the truck, less gas to spend. Plus, I love the fact that I dont come out of pocket for all those rainy day incidents. Housing is alot better in the Army now. But there is still more room for improvement... :cool:

    thanks. Just got back from the PI. My wife moved in while I was deployed. I was hella happy when I got home.

    So as you see, this is why I'm having fun moding my truck. If I lived on economy, I would just be getting by.
