Install was simple, only took a about 30 min. Everything made well and easily mounted. Only small issue was the MAF sensor mount which was just a piece of rubber hose was the wrong size, i luckily had the right size laying around so no big deal. I got the Wrinkle black, no need for the shiny intake under the hood imo. It looks good.
As far as performance and such. I have had in on a few months so i could get a good idea of the mpg. With my mix of highway/city i was getting about 15.5, the average after a few tanks was 16.3, so i gained about .8 mpg which was about my expectation. I recently added a MBRP catback and got the mpg to 16.9. I would definitly reccomend the combination of exhaust and intake, it really makes it run much better. This is better than the stock restricive air box, the engine breathes better and trys less on the highway. Throttle response seems a little better, but performace is always hard to judge with something like this. You can hear it sucking air a little bit, but that is expected with an open filter, does a nice slurp downshifting 3rd to 2nd.
I've had great luck with AutoAnything and haven't found better prices, hope this review helps
