Will an S&B filter and intake kit improve my fuel economy?
simple answer is yes. By lowering the restriction level versus stock,
the S&B Intake allows the engine to work more efficiently which
will improve fuel economy.
to the Department of Energy, a dirty air filter will have an adverse
affect on fuel economy. Fueleconomy.gov states that replacing a clogged
air filter can improve your car's gas mileage by as much as 10 percent.
The reason a clean filter improves fuel economy is because it is less
restrictive than a dirty filter, so the engine works less to consume
the air it needs. This S&B Intake Kit is substantially less
restrictive than the OE induction system with a clean filter installed
thus allowing the engine to breathe even easier which results in better
fuel economy. S&B does not make a specific claim with regards
to fuel economy because there are too many factors that can affect your
miles per gallon.

performance characteristics of greatest interest are airflow
restriction (differential pressure), dust collection efficiency and
dust capacity. The ISO 5011 Standard is what S&B Filters
adheres to as they seek innovations and improvements in their product
line, and to test the products so they meet the highest standard
possible. We feel this is the standard that all performance filter
manufacturers should be using to develop their products.
The end result is simple: increased horsepower by reducing the
restriction of the air filter and/or intake kit while still protecting
the engine. Trust your performance needs to the only performance filter
manufacturer who tests to these standards and post results - Trust
Don't forget about filtration because S&B didn't! Filtration is
what separates S&B from the competitors. S&B is able to
