Intake and Exhaust installation; fuel consumption

Whats your guys experience after installing an after market intake & exhaust system ?
Does it have the tendency to consume more gasoline ? or its the same granting you don't change your driving habits ?
I have the full berk street performance on order (change from after the catalytic down) and the Burger Motor Sport N55 intake system.

Can i also install the intake first before the exhaust ?

Many thanks.

You will see a dip in gas mileage because you will be hearing the turbos spool up more and wanting to get on it any chance you get.

And yes, you can install the intake before the exhaust. Intake install isnt bad at all, the exhaust might take a bit longer, depending on what you have for equipment and lift access available.

It should not. Gas mileage all stems from your target air/fuel ratios. Unless you change your target air/fuel ratios, fuel consumption shouldnt change significantly.

## by change, you mean "tune" ?? so far no plans yet.

## with the two components installed w/o a tune, how many hp am i expecting to extract ?##

Thanks!
