Exhaust and CAI

Hey guys and gals I just bought a 2007 compass 4x4 limited back in March and am wondering if it would be in my interest to get new exhaust and cai to help with the mpg's. If anyone has added one or the other let me know how much more mpg's your getting.

even if it you got 3mpg extra, by the time you pay for the CAI($200+) and exhaust($150+) it would take a long time to get your moneys worth

certainly haven't noticed an increase in my MPG since I put my K&N CAI on - if anything it's gone down to 22-23

i agree, have head mine on for about 13,000 miles, a tad quicker, no increase in mpg, maybe a slight decrease
