3.7 Air Intake

Thinking about picking one up. My main concern is gas mileage. I'd really like to up my MPG. What are people's thoughts on these?

Thanks
Adam

I increased about 2mpg average with a Volant intake and 4.7L throttle body

It (the CAI + TB) made a big difference on my old 4.0 I6 & after a header and completely new exhaust I was getting close to 23 MPG (up from 19)

The 4.7 throttle body bolts right up to a 3.7?

Is it any 4.7 throttle body, or am I looking for a specific year range?

If you have an 07+ you need electronic. Mine came off a 2009 Ram.
