Just wonder.. has anyone noticed any Gas mileage differences before and after installing a SRI or CAI?

Is your car a MT or AT?

I found a mitsubishi specialty shop where i live but its kinda small and they seemed somewhat un-knowledgeable so ill ask the experts . I was trying to buy a short ram injen for my 06 lancer but they said they dont make one. if you can make a cold air into a shorm ram certainly they would sell both right? anyone know if there is a sri for 06 and where can i get it?

CAI for dummies

No Injen short ram available seperately for the RA. You have to puchase the CAI and take the lower section off to make it a SRI.
IMHO the only positive difference between a stock intake and a SRI is the sound and the appearance when you lift the hood.
The negative list has already been stated numerous times.
To the person who purchases an Injen CAI and converts it to a SRI instead of installing an AEM bypass valve to eliminate hydro-lock and begs for heat soak while they're wondering why their 87 octane pump gas at over $3/gal isn't providing more horsepower and is decreasing their gas mileage over stock:....Kick your own, cause UR1 if you just read this!<--Not intended for you Skott.

heat soak comes from the engine bay temps, which can be much higher than outside temps if you aren't moving.

Someone told me that SRI will actually drop my lower end torque. I drive a lancer es 06 is this true? I thought it was suppose to increase it.

I've been told the exact opposite that it increased low torque but would get more horsepower from a cai..and less from sri?

you wont get less hp

sri gives better low end coz it can suck in the air easier compared to CAI which has to go thru over a meter of piping or so. but SRI is suseptable to heat soak where CAI gives cold air
i know i cant explain well, hopefully mitvrx or dan or otter, etc will come fix up what i said ...
