Can anyone comment on gas mileage after installing one (or a similar system)? With gas like it is, I was thinking I might get one if it will help any with gas mileage ... ya know, sometimes got to spend some money to save some in the long run. Thanks.

BTW: I'm thinking of getting the new chrome one, best price so far $241, has anyone seen it lower?

I have one and didnt notice much better gas mileage maybe 1mpg but the power and response had some nice gains! I get like 10mpg on streets but then again im running 38" tires and these guys seem to have nice sporty trucks.

Yeah, I only saw .5-1 mpg increase after installing my Volant.

The crome isn't all that great but looks better than plastic.

Where did you find that kit for $241? Everywhere I looked just has the plastic FIPK II kit...I like the looks of this new series over the plastic one.

Jegs or Summit both had it, Crutchfield as well.

Nice Job! Looks bought, not built!

I just ordered my K&N 77-Series, won't ship till about June 2 though .. I've asked Allen to set my tune up for it, so hopefully I will like the combination and with my flows to boot.

I have an FIPK on my Z71...didn't notice any economy gains until I got it tuned by Allen.

It sure sounds a HELL of a lot better at WOT though.
