I've got the K&N CAI and Magnaflow cat-back.  I didn't purchase them for MPG's, I just wanted a slight HP bump and the sound is incredible!  An engine is just a giant air pump, more efficient air in and out is a good thing...  I can't say I noticed any "seat of the pants" improvements, nor do I have any dyno results, but I did have fun when I took it to my local drag strip for testing!

Well that really doesn't answer my question but thanks. My mileage will differ since mine is an AWD LTZ

Sure I answered it. . . 

My first line in regards to the K&N filter helping with better MPG and HP:

" The simple answer . . . no, in spite of the hype. "

It will not help. .  possibly might be a slight difference with near WOT.  .Wide Open Throttle.. .and even then, minimal.

Look online for benefits in the auto you would like. A lot of car suppliers offer you cash again or unique credit on his or her autos. The dealer will not likely usually tell you about these things up front. Take some time to teach oneself initial so you can get the best offer when you are in the showroom.

The simple answer . . . no, inspite of the hype.

I have a 2015 Equinox 3.6L with 18,000 miles on it. In round numbers, we have been getting 17 to 22 MPG (winter/summer) city/rural highwqy combined miles and generally +26 to +28 MPG on interstate road trips.  We have gotten +29 to +31 MPG on 300 to 400 mile legs going to/from Florida on mostly interstate.

We find a lot had to do with whether we are driving into any head or cross winds of 15 MPH or more, hilly terrain, or heavy stop and go traffic. And. . . staying at 65 to 72 MP is best. .  Any speed at or over 75 MPH and the MPG will dip down to 25  MPG or less.

If we can motor along at 65 to 70 MPH under good conditions, we get +28 MPG very easily.

Curious, being new here, will adding the K&N air intake make that much of a difference in HP and fuel mileage? It's not the best for gas mileage but it is what it is with 301 HP.

I owned a 2014 SLE 2 and currently own a 2017 Denali - - both Nav-equipped.

Succinctly, I do not trust these devices to navigate me out of a telephone booth. They, most times, provide the most absurd and roundabout routing I have ever experienced.

To spend $$$ updating the maps is akin to returning to do business with a corner store that specializes in selling outdated milk.

In Garmin We Trust!

If I recall correctly, the update costs more than a Garman with free updates for life.
And those can be transferred to any vehicle.

Has anybody bought the 2017 Map update for NAV yet?  Is it worth the money?


Yes and No it's not.
