Looking for Intake

Is the mac intake good and does it change MPG any. I want the more power from it but still want my 21mpg.

I have a 2.3L, but I have tried several different intakes including mac, volant, k/n and a few other less known brands. They all made a slight differance, but I have found much better results with the k/n fipk. It is quieter than the rest and gives quite a bit more power gain without hurting the fuel economy like the others. My mpg is slightly better than it was stock. Most of the others were either equal or worse than stock.
