    Will my mileage get better or worse?

    I'm about two weeks away from getting my first mods done to the car. I've got 4,000 miles, two oil changes and window tint on it now. However, I am concerned about gas mileage since I do drive 62 miles one way to work.

    Here's what I'm looking to do:

    1. COBB Access port (Stage Two)
    2. BPM Catted Downpipe
    3. HKS Catback Exhaust w/ Carbon Fiber TI Muffler
    4. Spearco Top Mount Intercooler
    5. Worx Blow Off Valve
    6. Triple Gauge Pod with Boost, EGT and Oil Pressure

    Can I expect the same, better or worse gas mileage under normal driving conditions with these mods?

    1. COBB Access port (Stage Two) Do it.
    2. BPM Catted Downpipe Good. Catted = Not stinky
    3. HKS Catback Exhaust w/ Carbon Fiber TI Muffler Cool.
    4. Spearco Top Mount Intercooler Ok..
    5. Worx Blow Off Valve BAD
    6. Triple Gauge Pod with Boost, EGT and Oil Pressure Ok

    BOV will make your car run lean and get messed up. dont do it. if you want the whoosh, get the SPT intake. the bypass valve diverts air back into the intake and its LOUD with this mod.

    as for everything else, the thing that will give with the biggest decrease is the AP2.0. but you dont get an STI for good gas mileage. put it on cruise, youll get like 24-25ish. or move closer
