Hard to say if the fuel economy benefits are realized because all I want to do is hit the accelerator and hear the awesome rumbling sound. Also, the performance benefits are immediate.

The installation process would have been much easier, had all of the necessary parts been shipped. Having to purchase parts from a local hardware store that were missing from the package put a damper on the entire project. Having said that, I can definitely notice a difference in performance. Engine RPMs are lower, gas mileage has seemed to improve and the motor has a subtle, but notably deeper sound.

I was looking for better mpg from my Trailblazer so this was the easiest place to start. Just driving around town I don't notice much of a performance gain, but in the higher rpms it is fairly noticeable. I'm also seeing about 0.5-1.0 more mpgs. The only drawback is the engine heats up much more slowly with all the cold air coming in. My TB used to be at full temp after my 3 mile commute but now it takes much longer to heat up. A no-brainer upgrade for the TB since it looks so professional and will pay for itself in fuel economy gains and a high quality lifetime air filter.

Really like this intake. Could tell a difference right away. Better throttle response. Read that TBS could not be used with this CAI but installed one anyway. Man what a difference. Maybe no mpg gain but definite torqe gain. Would recommend this CAI to anyone in need.

Perfect bolt on piece for more horsepower. Noticeable increase in horsepower 10+ and it feels like a V8. Best thing you could do to help your I6 breathe feel and drive better.

I figured since it only takes a few minutes to take out the stock airbox that it would only take a few minutes to install this intake too. Wrong. Plus there were a few things that made me scratch my head about this kit. First thing I noticed when I pulled it out of the box, they screwed their logo on upside down! But the thing I didn't like was that the web site says they use PowerCore filters, which was one reason I bought this kit since I do NOT like oiled filters. And of course they don't make a PowerCore filter for the TrailBlazer and it came with the filter that they say should be cleaned and oiled every 12k miles. Wonderful. The install was straight forward though, just attach the filter to the tube first because if you try and attach the filter after the tube is attached to the resonator it will pop out. The other thing that made me scratch my head a little was the holes in the cover didn't match up very well to the holes on the washer jug. So I had to drill one of them out a little bit. In defense of this kit however, it is an aftermarket part and most aftermarket parts like this don't fit as good as stock parts. As far as intakes go, I would say the Volant is the best though. Overall, I do like the kit though. It seems like I did get a little extra power and a little more noise at WOT. I'm not sure about economy gains yet because the first fill up after I installed this kit screwed it up because the pump kept clicking off and I didn't get the tank filled up all the way.

Noticed increased power & fuel economy with the first tank of gasoline. Increase MPH by approximately 10% and power is there when needed for passing on the interstate.
