Putting an intake and exuast should not make a difference in MPG because it actually provides more air flow as long as you dont cut out the catalitic converter and put a straight pipe your mpg shouldnt change unless you drive hard .... and as far as power should boost you just a lil u will notice a slight difference.

it would certainly help but dont expect anything overly dramatic in gains.

you'll notice slight gains in power...but if you add an intake and'll probably enjoy the car more and drive faster....causing you to get worse mpg...
