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.
