I don't expect 30hp but is it better than stock for mileage and hp to get intake.

Did you really just COMPLETELY miss the sticky?
I mean, it's right up at the top.
Not to be a douche-faucet. But...seriously. Dude.
Come on.

Right here.

Well, the initial intend did not, but yes, lots of stuff covered and yes stickies are largely ignored by most.

now this is when i was a little whipper snapper and owned a 04 2.5 wagon.
well they use a speed density metering devise for air flow well, i went out and purchased a cone filter removed all the plastic crap and install it directly on the throttle body like so and viola! its whistles just like a turbo would and gives you the deep tone of air being sucked in. but since then i wised up and spent a bit more money and now own a rex wagon

For what it's worth, my mapped equipped 2001 RS with just an injen CAI pushed it to a 15.005 1/4 mile time.

Worthwhile mod, yes. Can't remember if your motor is map based, I think it is. Read the sticky for pro's/con's.

on MAP based cars, it is indeed a worthwhile mod.
However, the 2002 OBS is not a MAP based car, if I recall correctly.
