The MAF sensor is the one that will get affected by over-oiling.I have also used the K&N intake system with good luck. It made a noticably improvement in throttle response. Just don't over oil it or you will be replacing the MAP sensor.
I wouldn't expect much of a gain. Maybe 1+, but I never noticed much.phumb said:thanks pate, any idea how much if any increase in mileage?
You're correct. It is the MAF sensor. My damn iPhone corrected it to "MAP" for me.O1SalsaX said:The MAF sensor is the one that will get affected by over-oiling.

As for mileage increases..I definitely noticed a significant mileage increase in the Mustang, mainly due to the custom tune but the intake definitely helped.
The biggest problem is your lead foot after installing an intake and exhaust.
It sounds so nice that you'll be really heavy on the gas for the first few tanks.
After the feeling wears off a bit, you should pick up a little mileage by driving slower.
I wouldn't count on anything more than 1mpg if that.
I went from 20mpg to 27mpg highway in my mustang because of the intake/exhaust and mileage tune and most importantly changing driving habits.
The main benefit from going with a K&N is being able to clean it and reuse it.
That will add up over time.
I have two different tunes on my programmer (can fit a third as well).M14BULLETTS said:who did the tune???
A bunch of my friends had the gibson systems on their Xterras with poor results.phumb said:thanks for the replies!! probably am going to go for it, cold intake also...should I get the gibson "kit" and do it myself? if not, any recommendations on who I should get? thanks again!
bird-I was little concerned about the highway drone, from most I've read, its not to bad???
ecr- haven't changed yet, probably on my 1st or second change....thanks again!
