I know it is not a Hemi, but....

I installed a $40 intake (which actually looks very nice I might add) on my Civic to make maintenance just that much easier not having to replace air filters. Would you believe my average MPG went from 32 to 35mpg!!!! I couldn't believe I gained that much. I had 10 more miles on my tripometer when I filled up and I filled it with 1 less gallon of fuel. Did the math, and that is what I got. Pretty cool huh? My gas light wasn't even on yet and I had more miles than I usually do after driving 25 miles after the gas light was on!!
