I have had the Takeda Air Intake for less than a month so I only have my impressions to go on. I was pleased that when I got the unit, all the screws, clamps, and washers were present. As it has been said by others, the instructions could be better. I think though if you take your time and look over the situation it is not a hard installation. It took me about an hour and a half to do it taking my time. Engine seems to idle a little faster than before. I have to watch how much pressure I put on the gas pedal, because it seems to take a lot less pressure on the gas pedal to get the speed I want, than it use to. I haven't done much high speed driving in it, but the other day I put my foot down to enter the interstate and the car moved out with a lot more power and less strain than before the installation. So far I am quite happy with it. Don't know about gas mileage yet, but it does not seem to be worse.
