It maybe wishful thinking, the newer builds with this resonator seem to have better fuel economy than the older builds. My build date is 11/28/2013. I'm averaging a solid 36 MPG, with at least 75 to 80% city driving in Los Angeles.

I'm in the Philli area with winter weather and do much better than that. I averaging 40.5 right now even with the snow and and the freezing temps. My FFH was built 11/17/2012

Mine arrived this afternoon and I installed it. I drove around the block a couple of times and there is a distinct improvement, even under acceleration. Well worth the money. Much, much quieter. When I get the chance I will drive around the block in the MKZh and see how the FFH now stacks up against the Lincoln.

It's good that you have a direct comparison to check the intake noise with.

I just checked the oil level on my wife's Prius and look what I found attached to the air intake.

A resonator, or something to that effect.

I got my intake from my local dealer ($43) on Thursday and installed it on Saturday.  Thanks HB for noticing the change in the intake, and thanks GS for letting us know how easy it is to install.  When doing the installation, have a flash light ready so that you can confirm the tabs are in their slots.  My FFH is definitely quieter, and when the ICE is heard, it is a more pleasant sound.

Since we are seeing the beginning of spring here, I've been getting great mileage.  My Engage display clicked over to 42.3 mpg this weekend.  I see many drives at 50+ mpg and my overall average for the past two months has been 43.5 mpg with most of the time spent between 65-72 mph.

I got the prime parking spot next to the front door at Trader Joe's yesterday and immediately a couple was starring at my FFH.  He asked "Is that a Focus?"  Nope, a Fusion.  "Yeah, that's right.  Great looking car!"  Of course it probably looked even better since the parking lot was loaded with Prius's.  My guess is that his first exposure to the Fusion was from the Super Bowl commercials.  He was having a long conversation with his wife after this encounter.

We were walking to our car Saturday night after dinner and the car was running, while my wife was clearing snow off and some guys were walking up the sidewalk and said nice tail lights!  I know they were referring to the car since my wife was on the other side and her tail wasn't lit.  :)

Whenever I see a Prius lately it just reminds me of how good looking our Fusions are. Especially compared to the Prius. 

I love being able to start mine remotely, and enjoy the lighting that accompanies that.

This part is now on national backorder, with no projected delivery date, I'm not happy.

Sorry to hear that but who in their right mind would order one in the first place?

Just us....

The Forum strikes again!! ;)

 

I'm sure that when Ashley tells Ford that a lot of us early model '13 owners on this Forum want one Ford will start crankin' them out.

If the C-Max owners get cash back, why can't we get free intakes w/ chambers? Lol

Still haven't ordered mine yet, too busy enjoying the weather on the bike and tearing apart another engine's innards.

I drove the wife's MKZh while she is out of town....shhhhh don't tell her. I wanted to compare the vehicles that now have the resonator air intake and found the Lincoln is still a bit quieter and I attribute that to the extra padding in the MKZh. The FFH is much quieter at the lower end RPMs than it was. Ford had to have alot of complaints for them to make the change.

I doubt you would want to ride in the weather we had here this morning!  Yuck is an understatement. Woodstock had at least 2" of heavy wet snow fall so fast the plows couldn't get the roads clear.  There was 4" o fhtat crap by my house, and I parked the Fusion in the garage and took the Flex instead.

 

Oh what fun it is to drive in my AWD Flex.  I got to play this morning in the slushy snow, poor little Prius got a face full of the yuck too.  I saw another one nose down in a ditch, that car isnt going anywhere soon.

I, along with GrySql bought ours from Levittown Ford for about $42.00 including shipping. Two local Ford dealers wanted $48.+, See post #1 in this thread.
