Re: Fuel mileage test ... 17!!?
Well, people prefer the sound of a V8 in a sports car over a raucous little 4 banger in a pickup truck. They also had the extra room under the hood to add such things, as the Cavalier with the same engine does not have much in the way of resonators.
I'll be swapping to a Cavalier intake manifold soon and have a Quad4 airbox that I'm going to mount where the battery goes.
The K&N intake I have now isn't worth the money, I've had it for about 12 years now but the mounting hardware sucks (rarely stays tight), where it mounts to the fuse block bracket will most like break from the extra vibrations, the heat shield seal came apart while installing it (had to glue it back together). I'm glad I got a big discount on it at the time. It did make a small difference in the top end, but the adding the Quad4 throttle body helped more (though it is pretty noisy, at certain throttle positions, you can really hear it sucking air in). I have no delusions that this truck will ever be fast, but it is pretty fun to wind up.
