Welcome to the forum, I'm running the flo-pro pipe with a flo-pro intake elbow. The fit was fine. I did have to do a little grinding to get it to fit but I think that goes for any of the aftermarket pipes.

Same here as woodboy. Didn't notice any mpg gains. Even if it does it would be a very small gain that would probably be un-noticeable.

The last time I checked I got 16.5 driving about 85% highway, 15% around town plus a little idle time. I really don't even check anymore though because I am not to concerned with mpg. It was more just because there was a conversation going on on another forum so I just did a run for a little info. I wouldn't expect crazy gains. Typically it ranges from 10-20% depending on what you were getting before the deletes. People say tune for power first and accept the mpg gains that come with it. This way you won't set yourself up for disappointment.
