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.

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
