    I put this in early yesterday and was very much surprised on not only the sound difference but the performance boost at high speeds.

    This is my my first mod and I just wanted to take some time to thank the forums contributors, who were extremely helpful in making my first choice.

    Still unclear what that sensor tube is for though - instructions do not mention it.

    That's awesome. Update the thread later on if you don't mind. I'm thinking about doing this as well and I would like to know your results in the mileage and performance department.

    Guessing it'll be a couple weeks before my lead foot goes away. Keep opening it up every chance I get but I will reply back later.

    That's pretty much what I figured but am glad someone could confirm - thanks.

    Had to drive around the parking lot a couple times to get the odometer to flip 300 but that is a single tank of gas, which put me around 40 additional miles on my tank. Getting ~ +2mpg. Considering it costs me $75 to fill up in the bay area, this should pay for itself relatively soon.

    What did you want to know? Relatively easy installation and I've not had a single issue with mine. Mileage improved, sounds better, and it picks up a little bit more. Will eventually pay for itself.

    No. Its a vacuum gage, and lets you know when the air filter is getting plugged.
