    K&N cold air system results.

    Bought one of these for my 2016 3.5 ecoboost.
    Install took couple hours, the unit looks great , not a lot of could under acceleration....
    But here’s the kicker.
    I did a 70 mile drive, reset the mpg computer. Drive 55 mph , the limit where I live, from 7000 feet elevation to 4500 and back up.
    28.3 is what I got. Closest I ever got to that was 25mpg.
    I did give it a couple good runs for obvious reasons.
    Just wanted to share.

    That is good. 55 mph is the sweet spot for my stock 3.5.

    You are correct, it's you. You made one "drive" with your truck with this installed and are claiming to gain over 3mpg better.
